I have stayed in Formule 1 hotels across France for many many years.
The rooms are always clean, the shared showers and toilets clean themselves after every use! And are constantly checked. Fresh small towels in the rooms every day too.
Usually a double bed with a single bunk above or book a twin in some hotels for 2 single beds.
A TV, sink and mirror and a few power points are pretty much all you get. What more do you need? Unless you plan on staying in the room for days!
Yes everything is basic but functional.
Not much space in the rooms, so i always use these hotels as cheap stopovers.
I wouldn't like to stay in one for a week or more but I always recommend them for travelling across France or a cheap weekend city break.
I have read some complaints about the breakfast, but seriously for around £3.50 there is as much coffee (and hot chocolate and t-bags which is rare in France) as you can drink, and cerials, lovely sweet bread (to toast if you like) with spreads, Fruit juice, yogurts and in a couple of the hotels i have stayed in pieces of baguette.
All of the breakfasts are buffet (help yourself to as much as you like!) and you must get in there quite early or in busy periods they occasionally run out of things.
Like i say for £3.50 breakfast is great value. As are the room prices!
The location of this particular F1 is not the best, but for a cheap weekend in Paris is absolutely perfect if you dont mind a 10 min walk to the Metro after breakfast.
I will say that the staff in all F1 hotels are usually great, if you attempt to speak some French they appreciate it. If you dont try then some may treat you like an ignorant foreigner!
Just by saying Bonjour, je suis desole, je ne parle pas Francais ( hello, i'm sorry, i dont speak french) will get you much more respect than just ranting in English!!
After all if a French person talks only in French when visiting the UK, people here think they are ignorant!
