“This is not a good hotel”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

I checked in after a long business day and made my way up to the room. After a few minutes of unpacking, I realized that the room was unmade - they never cleaned it after the previous guest! I switched to another room, but the room had only one free electric socket and the thermostat was not working properly, and the street noise was extremely loud, as if the window was wide open (which it wasn't). Night coverage of the front desk was minimal - in fact, when I checked out at 5:30 AM, the clerk was nowhere to be found (but I did hear snoring from a side room...), although he eventually came out. This hotel also has no restaurant, by the way. There is no reason to recommend this hotel at all.

Just a few steps from Place d'Italie and Tolbiac metro station.
Smoking rooms are located in a separate wind of the hotel, reachable through a inner bridge running across the heated swimming pool. Free Wi-Fi everywhere.
Rooms are very comfortable and very quite (I cannnot assure that rooms facing the busy Av. d'Italie awould be as quite).
Reception not terrifally friendly...

Room Tip: Av. d'Italie is a very busy road: you might prefer rooms not facing the front road

We chose to stay at this hotel because it was conveniently located close to the subway and within walking distance to my grandparents' apartment. Another positive thing was that the staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately, this is where compliments end. We stayed in a room with a queen bed with a balcony. The room was extremely small. There was just a showerhead in a corner of the bathroom with a drain on the floor and no shower curtain. The water went everywhere in the bathroom and leaked under the door to the bedroom, soaking the carpet. The wood on the door was chipping due to the wetness. We had placed towels on the floor to minimize the spread to the carpet when we showered but it was no use. Seems uncivilized the way it was designed. I would never come back to this hotel.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

Air conditioning did not work. It was hot in the room even though the outside weather was chilly. One bed had hospital style rubber sheets, presumably due to a previous guest's "accident". It was impossible to sleep. My daughter asked the reception desk to borrow a pen, which was actually refused ("I am the president here, and you can't have a pen.") There was a foul stench in the only available elevator; after four days nobody had done anything about it. Smaller things, too: Internet so ridiculously slow that it was of no use. Only decaf coffee available in rooms. No remote for the TV. Without a doubt one of my worst hotel experiences. Yet, the price paid was rather high. Best Western apparently accepts this dump as a four-star hotel. If that is so, classifications have no meaning. Premier... yeah, right! I am not likely to stay at a Best Western ever again.

Room Tip: Stay out of this place!

The management should try to ensure that if the room safe is broken,it should be repaired immediately rather than ignored it in order to save money!Air con was not working,booked twinbedded room but given double bed instead.Otherwise,the stay was pleasant.
