if you don't want to get any sleep and you love the noise of traffic throughout the night, non stop, especially the sirens, then this is the hotel for you! We spent 4 long and sleepless nights in this place and i have never had such a poor experience. the hotel is located on a very busy crossroads and the windows did not close properly so the noise was incessant. When we did get a room with closing windows, the noise was no different as there is not proper double glazing. It was like trying to sleep in the middle of the m25. the french have no laws or quarms about using their horns and sirens at 3am. the hotel is in a very poor area and as 2 girls we did not feel safe in the area after around 8pm. Their is a lot of homelessness in paris and several homeless people would gather every night on the corner in front of macdonalds. they were drinking and begging for money and would stay there all night chatting and laughing, every word could be heard as you lay there awake. they got louder and more rowdy as the night went on into the early hours. inside the room, there was an alcove with a rail in it for clothes but also, the alcove contained the down pipes for waste from the rooms above. every time someone used the loo, u knew about it. the walls are paper thin and you can hear the tv or conversation of others. the lift in the hotel is the smallest i have seen. it barely fitted my suitcase and i inside it. Good points: the room was not sparkling clean but it was not filthy either. the sheets were clean and fresh towels were given every day. the bathroom was a good size, it was a wet room really meaning everything in the bathroom would steam up and be covered in condensation after a shower, but this would be cleaned up and wiped down every day by room service. the hotel is right next to a metro station and the metro is a very easy system to use to get around. there are alot of patisseries in the same road as the hotel so breakfast was not a problem, we did not pay for breakfast when we booked the room and im glad we didn't! overall, the worst hotel experience ever. the exhaustion from getting no sleep made it a very hard going break but we had no spare money to book anywhere else. we went to paris to watch the red hot chilli peppers and to see the sights, we have acheived that dream and i will try my best to forget the hotel that put a huge blot on the break.i feel sorry for anyone else who has booked or is currently staying there.
