“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This hotel is in a fantastic location. It is right in the centre of everything i love about Paris - Markets, attractions, Meat market, seafood, fruits!!!

The room was very Big, but pretty average bed. The staff were helpful when we asked for some information. We only stayed here 1 night but i wish it was longer simply because of its location. Located up a little cul de sac. We did not eat here.

We booked a 'Secret deal' through Last minute.com and when the name of the hotel was revealed checked the tripadvisor reviews. In general they were not very flattering so it was with trepidation that we checked in late at night. Overall we were satisfied though there was nothing special about the place. On the plus side we found the staff polite and helpful. The room (408) was bigger than most of the rooms in the Paris hotels we have stayed in with a decent sized bed and relatively large bathroom. The furniture was fairly basic but there was enough space to move around. It was very quiet at night. The water was hot, pressure good and the room and bathroom were generally clean. However, the bedspread and chair cover looked grubby and in need of a clean. The location is great, close to the Arc de Triomphe and metro and on Saturday a series of stalls were set up metres from the hotel with a great selection of foodstuffs so it is a great place to wander around.
On the downside the lift, corridors and public areas are shabby and in dire need of a freshen up. The in room toiletries consisted of a bar of soap, small pot of moisturiser and some make up removal pads. I was able to get some shampoo from a chambermaid in the morning but only after a lengthy scramble though the store rooms. I don't believe this should be a 4 star and if I had paid the published rake rate I would have been very disappointed.

As previously mentioned by other reviewers, the location is good. The hotel is less than good. Apparently it is 4 star, I don't know how that can be. We know rooms are small in Paris, so that wasn't a real surprise but the bed or specifically the mattress was dreadful, we rolled into the middle it was that old. Lucky we only had one night booked there. We will be back in Paris, we won't be back at this hotel. The room however was spotlessly clean and we found the staff the be very friendly.

Where do I start. The location is good. The Hotel is awful! The reception staff had far better things to do than see to guests. The lady, when we checked in, did manage a smile but then continued to chat to her friend, the men just frowned. We were not given any information just handed our key. Our room was tiny & the bathroom like a cupboard. We had booked a twin but there was no room to separate the beds. The pillows, we had one each, were like blobs of cotton wool. The bedside lights did not work neither did the light outside our door. At our request they replaced the bulbs in our room and brought extra pillows - although the night porter wanted us to go down and do it ourselves. We had to move the chair in front of the dressing table to get round the other side of the bed and remember not to stand by the side of the bed when someone was in the bathroom as the door opened out! And to the bathroom, oh my goodness, it was filthy. I could go on and on, I have a long list, but suffice to say it was old, tatty and filthy!! Four star - the Parisian are having a laugh - no sorry they don't!

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!

Let me start with the only two good things- the location and it's in a quiet cul de sac.

The rooms are tiny, the bathrooms even tinier. The reception staff are unusually rude, even by Parisian standards of rudeness. How the French board of tourism dishes out stars beats me, because this ain't no 4 star hotel, even with an exotic imagination!!

Steer well away from this one- you won't be sorry

This hotel is two star and three star or four star. Outside appearence looks good . Very small room . Location is good and convienient from city center.Staff receptionist are helpful but cant do much about the aircondtioning. There is nice vegetable market in the sqaure , you can get fresh fruits and good bakery is close by. This is walking distance from the metro and bus station. There are lots of eating places at reasonable pricing.

Room Tip: Rooms opening in front square are good , if the AC does not work you can open windows.

At best this is a 2 Star Hotet. We always bid on Priceline for a 4 or 5 Star Hotel and this one was the worst ever. The location was good, but that could not make up for the room we received. Told it was a Garden View, turned out to be in the basement with a view of a few scragley plants, no grass, and many cigeratte butts. Nothing good to say about the room except it was an OK size by European standards.

Room Tip: Get a room at a true 4 Star Hotel.
