I was looking for a nice & typical hotel in the center of Paris to spend a lovely weekend with my bf. On booking I found a special offer for a comfort room at the Hotel Louis 2 (155€ per night instead of 244€).
The position is absolutely perfect (carrefour de l'odeon). This is the only good thing.
Actually the hotel is nice, well decorated & clean.
So what's wrong?
I had to wait 35 min to check in because the young lady (all the staff is very young) had her head in the clouds. She gave me a tiny tiny room (no more than 9mq). I asked for a better one as long I reserved the comfort one (the difference is bath/tube bath). The staff has been kind and satisfy my request after 40 minutes. Not big change because the new room was about 10mq, but better than nothing also because they explained me that only junior suites are bigger than standard or comfort rooms. In the center of Paris is pretty common to get small rooms, I know it, but this one was really tiny (impossible to move with 2 hand luggages).
In the room there are no 4 stars facilities (no coffee machine for example). The bathroom was tiny as the rest of the room. Although the decoration is nice. The bed not that comfortable and the queen bed is made by 2 single beds.
A lot of noises. You can hear everything from others rooms or corridor.
The staff, maybe because so young & un-experienced, is not that professional.
I travel quite a lot, I sleep in 4 stars hotel as in bead&breakfast or un-starred hotels and I never NEVER had an experience like this. The price is not justified especially if you pay the full rate (244€!!!!). In the same street there are better hotels for the same price (Relais de l'odeon et hotel odeon).
Please don't waist your money
