“Run down, dirty, contradicting unhelpful staff.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Located in district 17 of Paris you are conveniently located no where near anything of interest.

Transport wise, you are right in top of a railway station and a major railway junction, so expect lots of noise. There are no near by metro links (slap in the middle between two with a substantial walk) so expect to use Taxis regularly - particularly in business.

The rooms are of typical Parisien fair, small. The decor is ageing and the rooms aren't exactly clean. Don't expect you TV to work or indeed to ever connect to the "Advertised" wifi.

The front desk are inconsistent, and seem to go out if there way to ill advise you, for example we knew getting a taxi on a Sunday morning would be near impossible unless booked the previous day, the staff were insistent it would be okay to do on the day despite our insistence! Needless to say we waited an hour the following morning!

Checking out us painful, despite asking your room number for breakfast (which if you don't get to early enough there will be little choice from the meagre amount available) each morning this doesn't get fed through to reception, though if you do stay here, this is an opportunity to lower your bill ;)

Possibly the worst hotel i have stayed in, ever!

We booked a mystery deal through wotif and ended up so disappointed. The room they have us was overlooking the train tracks and main road and was so loud. We asked for another room which was better but still noisy. The shower didn't work so we called reception to which they said there was nothing they could do about it. The shower did work in the end. Comfortable bed, okay location. We stayed in another 4 star hotel in Paris which was 4 star, this one was not.

Was a little sceptical after reading some of the reviews before our visit however, was pleasantly surprised. Hotel a little out of the way but good bus and metro links. Room was small but most Paris hotel rooms are, and clean. Aircon worked amazingly which was a massive plus! Light switches were weird and one even seemed to turn all wall sockets off as well!!!
Only flaw would be cleaner came to clean room very early... 9am and then once cleaned when we were out did not lock room door after! Not happy about that!
Other wise staff were friendly and would visit again if wanting to stay somewhere on a budget!

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights and bought via the secret hotel deal on lastminute.com

Our room was small and quiet dirty- there was dust everywhere and the floor needed a good hoover. The service wasn't that good, they originally gave us they key to someone else's room!

Location wise - the bus stop was just over the road (route 31) but the metro was a good 10 minute walk.

Overall, it's good if you get a cheap deal, but it's defiantly not 4 star! I would say 2 star more like

Booked this trip through lastminute.com and was a bit scepticle about what to expect as I had used them before and was not happy. This trip was great, the hotel was as the pictures. The staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel is situated very close to the metro and a bus stop which will take you into the centre. Arch de triomphe is only a 15 min bus ride which you can catch over the road. A short walk of about 5 to 10 minutes takes you into the local centre which is great for small supermarkets and restaurants. We used a taxi service http://www.airport-cab-paris.com/index.php who were very helpful and on time it cost 46 euro to the hotel and then the same back. You can also get to the hotel by train and back which is cheaper and quite easy. The rooms are very boutique, ours was small but had a TV with a DVD player and was clean. The wifi connection was usually ok but I think when there are alot of people in the hotel this drops.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the building which has a nice view 304

We bought a Groupon trip to London and Paris. Hotel is London was very disappointing but I am happy to say we enjoyed our experience at Villa Eugenie in Paris. Rooms are small as are elevators but quaint. Bathrooms were small as well. Tiny people:) Hotel had Wi-Fi although the higher you got the more sparse your connection was. We were on the first floor so we were ok. There is a lot of construction on both street and neighborhood on all corners so it wasn't quiet but since we were on the move visiting the sights it was adequate. Air conditioning was wonderful but there was a weird buzzing noise in room that went off every 15 minutes or so that was rather annoying Safe wouldn't reopen once i used it so I had to get staff to help. Night time staff was very helpful. Daytime male staff at desk seemed bothered by any questions and didn't offer any assistance even in securing a cab for us in the pouring rain? Breakfast was overpriced at 14 euros per person so we stuck to local cafes. Is centrally located 5 blocks from metro access is easy.

Room Tip: There might be larger rooms available so check layout but it is an older hotel and everything was ki...

At this hotel me and my fiancé had a wonderful 3 night stay!

From the get go upon arrival at the hotel the staff were very helpful and accommodating! I had just proposed to my fiancé on the flight to Paris and upon explaining this, the receptionist upgraded us to a superior room with brilliant views of the Paris roof tops.

We got a room facing the opposite side to the train line that everyone is talking about in this forum so a quick tip is to ask for one of the following room numbers as the view will be of a Parisian street rather than a train line; 104,105,106. 204,205,206. 304,305,306. 404,405,406. 504,505,506. 604,605,606. However if you want to people watch then the train line view is better if not then ask, the worst the receptionist can say is no we are fully booked. Our room was beautifully decorated and was a great size! The bathroom was very spacious and very clean as was the bedroom and bed. The bed was a very comfortable bed and it felt very cozy mainly due to the lighting and decor.

We didn't eat in the restaurant as we wanted to get out and eat in the restaurants of Paris, this included having breakfast. So we are unsure how it was, but we know there is one and the menu did look good. There is a shop next door to the hotel, where you can get soft drinks, wine, snacks and any other amenities including adapters!

The hotel is in an average location as it is not too far from the attractions, but it is not very close either. The closest attractions to walk to are either the Arc de Triumph which is about a 40 minute walk and the Moulin Rouge is about a 30 minute walk. Via the metro (tube) everything is a lot more accessible the closest station is Rome which is about a 5 minute walk away so I would recommend using this service, or if your feeling a bit more daring and want to see Paris in a different more Parisian way then try and rent yourself a scooter (moped).

Me and my fiancé did this and it was the best thing we did, because it made everything so accessible and we didn't have to stress about getting back to our hotel via the metro. The city views and sites were amazing to drive round and we genuinely felt a little bit Parisian. The company we used charged us €75 for a 2 day hire which was brilliant and they drop and collect the scooter from your hotel! The cars in Paris we found were very accommodating to the scooters and if anything it seemed like the scooters bossed the car drivers around. Just search scooter rentals in Paris or Moped rentals in Paris or use the one we used called City Scooter. All the companies ask for about a €900 hold deposit, this means they have a hold on your money encase you damage the moped or don't bring it back and they release the hold which can take a few days to happen. If like me you paid for the whole trip and paid for an engagement ring and simply no longer have that much money in your account until you get paid then you can ask to put a lower deposit down and let them hold your driver licence until you give the scooter back. The scooters are insured and from the looks of the websites they are all new bikes but I can't guarantee this. I wouldn't really recommend renting a car unless your a family as the traffic for cars is crazy and not as fun also scooters can be parked almost anywhere!

Over all this hotel was amazing and great value for money enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a specific room as stated in my review! Enjoy!
