Many of the reviews on this hotel listing are actually for another Avenir Hotel in Paris which is in the Montmartre area near Anvers metro station and actually seems ok. In reality this hotel is a dive.
t looked very delapidated from the outside which concerned us but we peservered and went into the hotel. As soon as we entered the reception an unpleasant smell met us, we checked in and were shown to our room, which was:
- had no proper pillows, just a roll of material which was uncovered
- Cushions on the bed which were stained and had no covers on
- A tiny bathroom with a shower that wasn't attached to the wall
- A view of rubbish and a wall
- Eiderdowns on the beds that were stained and smelt very strongly
We complained and requested another room, after being made to wait for an hour and a half in the first room we were shown to another room, this room was larger and brighter but still had a number of problems:
- The bathroom floor was covered with other people's hair, long strands and shorter strands
- There were stains on the ceiling that looked like blood
- The eiderdowns were still stained and smelt strongly
- There were still dirty, stained and uncovered cushions on the bed
- There was a cigarette butt on the floor
- The floor was unhoovered and visibly dirty
- The room smelt VERY strongly of cigarettes.
We explained to the owner that the standard of the hotel rooms we had seen wasn't acceptable, even for a 2 star hotel and that the pictures on the site are not representative of the way the hotel looks at the moment. At the very least I would expect a room to be clean and have clean bedding, this was not the case in this hotel.
The hotel manager was extremely rude to us when we challenged the cleanliness and general state of his hotel.
