“Possibly the grubbiest hotel in Paris”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

I stayed here for 2 nights, and expected a lot more for £145 per night. I don't mind old fashioned or dated, but the very least a hotel needs to offer is cleanliness. I arrived in the evening and noticed that the room had not been vacuumed, carpet was filthy.

In the morning I saw a cigarette butt under the dressing table, which is pretty gross. The room also smelled of smoke. On my way out I asked the man on reception to ensure my room was cleaned thoroughly that day, and highlighted the cigarette butt under the table. When I got back from work that evening, the cigarette butt was still there and the room had not been vacuumed or cleaned at all. Beds had been made. I complained to a different man on reception who took a photo and removed the butt.

While walking around the room in socks, I stood in numerous wet patches. One near the air conditioner, which must have been leaking refrigerant. Another by the balcony doors, which must have been letting in water. The walls around the doors are also soaking wet.

Damp is an understatement, the room was practically dripping. I feel quite ill after staying at this hotel, and itchy.

Also: no plug sockets by the bed; empty shower gel was not replaced after first night; TV remote control didn't work; air conditioner didn't work; hole in toilet door; towel had red nail varnish/blood on; bed sheets were grubby; shower didn't drain properly, so by the end of the shower I was ankle deep in my own dirty water.

Nice view from the balcony though.

We stood 2 nights at this Hotel ans it was a nice weekend! Short ways to the metro and montmartre! Nearly all places to visit in Paris could BE reached in less than 10 minutes. Nice and quite cheap Restaurants are right down the street.
Rooms were a bit small, but clean. Very gentle employees who tried to help whereever they could.
No own parking facility. We searched more than one hour to find a legal place to park our car.

Hotel is not so easily distinguished on the strret, and inside is quite narrow spaced-so claustrophobics keep clear. Room cleanliness is still in need of improvement. However, the highlight of mornings, was the good breakfast served in room...more romantic and it is a standard as no place for restaurant.

Very close to all the attractions and transportation. Friendly staff. Would stay there again. The street has numerous restaurants and shopping. The rooms were a bit small. The front desk staff are very friendly.

I had a very comfortable stay for a weekend here. The staff was friendly - the lady at the reception helped me plan my visits to the tourist spots. All basic services were available, wifi was provided for a small price though. The hotel is located close to the Place de Clichy station - very convenient to travel around the city - and not very far from Paris Est too, if you are travelling by train.
