Wow, how to begin. We understand how accomodations in Europe are in comparison to the US, specifically to the sizes of the rooms. The good thing about this hotel is that is very close to the metro (Chateau Rouge) and the Sacred Heart Church. The staff was pretty nice although they spoke very little to no English. Other than that, well, not so good. We were with a group of 24 people which included having the double, twin, triple and single rooms. We had one of the best rooms (double) on the 5th floor and I can honestly say that it is the worst hotel room that I have ever stayed in and we have stayed in A LOT. The bed was extremely squeeky and we could hear everything that our neighbors said thru the thin walls. The rooms are very small especially the bathrooms. Had a slight sewer smell that we could smell every time we entered the room. All bathrooms had hand held shower nozzles. The ones that had tubs with these had no shower curtains. We had electrical converters with us but if we used our hair dryers we had to use them on the low settings to get them to work if they would work at all. We had several lights out in our room including the light over the bathroom sink. Trying to get the shower temperature to a moderate setting (not too hot or cold) was a crap shoot. Some of the room heaters did not work.
The area around the hotel is very local and is predominately Haitian immigrants. While we did not feel unsafe in the area, some in our group, especially some of the women, were uncomfortable with the hotel, the surroundings and the metro. I would not recommend this to a single woman or any unadventurous traveler.
