Me and boyfriend decided to go to Paris for a relaxing 3 day trip. We booked at Floride-Etoile Hotel months before our trip. I booked a Double or Twin Room and specifically requested a double room. Upon arrival, the lady who was in the reception, greeted us less jovially than the Europeans before us. I told her my name and they had a difficult time looking for my reservation, thus I handed them the confirmation letter that I had received from Booking.Com, only then did they found our room number. When we came to our room, instead of a double bed, they gave us twin beds that were put side by side. I mean honestly, what's the point of putting your requests on the booking slip if your not going to honour the booking itself. In their website, the double room option was pictured as having twin beds put side by side but with a double bed mattress on top. Honestly!!! and when I made a complaint about it, they suddenly pretended not to understand english!! I mean what the crap!!! When we arrived, I specifically asked them , in French, if they could speak English. They're such a bunch of [--]!!! The rooms are quite small and the walls are thin. Because we can hear talking and the the television set blaring from across the hall! and I mean across the hall. Plus, the room next to us was smoking. We can smell the cigarette smoke, and it was coming from our bathroom, thus we have concluded that it was the one next to us.
Don't bother to book the rooms with free breakfast. Because for 13 or 16 euros it really was not worth it. It was just a selection of 1 or 2 cereals, a few pastries, and some fruit salad (that came from the can) . I would've preferred eating at the kiosks selling waffles, and crepes or the hotdog stands at the Trocadero for a lot cheaper. Plus there are a lot of restaurants and cafes around, you can have your pick.
For the pros:
Location is good. It's near 2 metro stations. You can get there via the Boissiere Metro station. It's also like a 10-20 minute walk to the Champs Elysees and Trocadero.
Will I be staying here again?? hmmm... maybe not... There are a lot of budget hotels around for the same price. Maybe, if they change their staff, especially the snotty lady who greeted every other European national with a smile. And just because we are Asians, she cannot be bothered by us. Really, it was really downright insulting. Especially since, if not because of paying guests they would be out of a job. The least they can do is actually be accomodating!!!
