Here is our story. We had to stay 2 nights.
Our dog-house size room (#103) was above the bar where people are parting till 1am (every day!). My 9-year old made a joke, "I know why so many people on the streets in Europe - they do not fit in their rooms". The room was full of smoke - we were very tired, but could not sleep. I asked about another room. Only one with a single bed was available. They forgot about soap in the bathroom. I got almost no sleep that night - the bed was so tiny. I could not enjoy Paris next day - I was even more tired.
The manager pretended that he had no idea about the smoke in the room. The windows are cheaply made - you can smell and hear everything outside. The bathrooms look cute on their website pictures, but actually very tiny with absolutely no space for a cosmetic bag or curling iron near sink. We moved to a larger room for the 2nd night. They forgot about towels this time.
What else? The staff hardly speak English (or pretend they do not).
I could not believe I HAD to ask about the refund, I HAD to talk to the owner. Very unpleasant memories...
It is not the end yet. I asked about a taxi to go to the airport. The manager messed up with the time - he ordered a taxi 0.5 hour late. What a poor service!
This is the end of the ONE BAD HOTEL story, but not our Paris story. Then the taxi had a flat tire and the taxi driver (lady) had hard time to change it and no luck with calling another one. Thanks to a street worker who helped the lady driver. Horrible! We made in the airport on time only because I was aware of the Paris traffic (worse than any large cities of the US) and tried to be there 3 (!!!) hours before our flight, but my kid had no breakfast that morning and I still had to pay 75 euros for the taxi since the hotel is all the way on south - far away from airport.
