Clean single-room apartment with a view on the inner courtyard, including equipped kitchenette (small fridge, microwave, basic dishes and cutlery). Very quiet and safe neighborhood. A 5-minute walk to the metro (station: Louise Michel; line 3), Vélib, bus station.
Among the reasons why I won't definitely come back:
-when I first arrived at the Residence Salvy, I was stuck in front of the door for about 20 minutes before the manager's wife came to open it. I tried to reach the phone numbers posted on the front door (roaming-out call for me): 1 land line number, and 2 mobile phones numbers but nobody answered. The manager's wife stated that she was off for a 5-minute shopping (call me a liar, I was waiting for 20 minutes!). The manager Eric told me later that he could not answer because he was with his children (if you are not able to answer your clients, do not post your phone number!)
-cleaning service is only once a week! and it is not stated anywhere, you have to guess it by yourself. So you get the same sheets and towels the whole week long, and you live with your trash out the whole week long....disgusting!
-check-out is at 11am according to the manager Eric. On the Residence front door, it is at 12am (see picture attached). According to Eric, the note on the front door has not been updated....amateur!
-the common sections are just horrible. According to the manager Eric: "we don't invest much in the common sections"....well it is a point of view. Furthermore when I booked my room it was specified "the price includes a free-wifi in the room and access to the lift". The lift is out of order, and there is a very-poor quality free-wifi in the room.....very misleading advertising!
-last but not least, the manager Eric asked for my feed-back just before checking-out. When I did so, he obviously did not appreciate my comments and tried by all means to convince me that my point of view was not correct and that the Residence was pleasant, and that his wife and he were very welcoming.....Dear Eric, do not ask for somebody's feed-back and comments if you think so highly of yourself and your Residence!
Conclusion: I rather pay a little more, and get a professional hotel service
