It was a two night stay for me. I was travelling alone. The first front desk staff kept asking me questions about myself which made me uncomfortable. Maybe it was a different culture?
I was being assigned the room on the ground floor which the same front desk staff said it was the best room. I could not tell because I have not visited other rooms. But it was definitely the noisest one.
I was being sold a 12 euro buffet breakfast. As the hotel is 15 minutes away from the Metro I thought it was a good idea so paid upfront 24 euro for the two days.
At the first breakfast, there was no eggs no hot food. There were two pieces of cold cut left so I took that and had two toasts with it. There was coffee and orange juice. I thought the small selection was because I went there at 10.30am and was too late. But there were people arriving after me and they were left with almost nothing.
At the second breakfast I arrived at 9am. The food selection was even smaller. There was only crossiant. I thought it was a busy morning. I then checked out later and another front desk staff attempted to ask me to pay 7 and 3 euro respectively for the breakfasts because they were small. I told him I paid already and I paid 24 euro so should I be getting a refund? He stopped speaking English from that point. I thought it was a small amount and did not bother to pursue the refund notion.
I asked the same front desk staff to book me a taxi to go to the train station for about 15 min later. I was told taxis arrive right away so I shouldn't book in advance. I went back to the room; came back out with my luggage 15 minutes later; and was told by the same staff it was impossible to book anything because of the snow. It has been snowing for a day and a night. So I had no choice but to walk to the Metro with my luggage. In the snow the walk took double the time in normal condition.
My conclusion is there are many choices in Paris. Just don't risk your holiday with this place.
