“far from reality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

I must say, we were given a very friendly welcome.
But...when we arrived in the apartment we were just shocked!!!
The pictures that they publish on the site are “definitely not” what we saw in there!
Everything was dirty and aging.

A little "dirty” small kitchen.
Dirty and damaged walls, certainly on the small kitchen side!
A fridge that did not fit in the closet.
An old round damaged table.
At the furniture handles that were missing.
Even though the whole hotel was non-smoking, we asked “non smoking preference”! But cigarette butts were still on the 'dirty patio.
By the neighbors on the patio “the garbage bag” just lay outside!
In the bathroom a new toilet was installed, the new wall was not even a little bit painted.
Internet: on the site it was marked there was "fixed internet", surprising was that we only had access to “one” (1) PC.
The reason that was given “the internet was not heavy enough".
The cable that the housekeeper wanted to give us, was only one (1) meter long which means we should have to work sitting on the TV cabinet?!

We didn’t stay at this hotel, i don't like to share pictures!

We found this using an online booking service about 9pm whilst travelling back home in late August. Gone are the days, it seems, where you can turn up late and grab yourself a cheap room as most of the places we tried either had no reception staff on or the computers were shut down and no further bookings allowed. Seemed crazy to us. Anyhow, we were very lucky as although the online booking had been confirmed by email, reception has closed at 6pm, but a very helpful and friendly chap happened to still be there and he sorted everything out for us. We only stayed the one night & as a family this was great. A studio apartment setup with limited but reasonable cooking facilities. All clean, but decor a bit tired and dated. On the outskirts of Versailles it seemed to be very handy for commuting to there or Paris itself. Set amongst forest, there is activities aplenty, including golf & cycling. I would have liked to stay a few days here really as there seemed plenty to do and the nearby village was lovely. Anything up to a week would be good for a family base. Price was reasonable. I would consider this place again & would definitely stay for more than one night.

We arrived at the hotel at 3:30 and saw another guest who just checked in as he was unloading luggage from the car. But the reception was empty. There was nobody for quite a while so we had to call the hotel number and the from desk person came back quickly to his post riding a moped. He checked us in in a friendly manner that is common between friends who shared a few drinks the night before. The room welcomed us with a bucket of dirty water and a mop stuck in the bucket. I moved the bucket and the mop out to the patio. The other surprise waited for us in the shower pan which contained a plastic wastebasket turned upside down. After bringing our luggage to the room from the car we found that the doors lock themselves and the keys are in the room. But the desk person was already gone with his moped. After being summoned back he came quickly and cheerfully produced another key. He was actually a good guy and helpful in showing us around, except for not being the type of a person born to be a front desk clerk (he may be the only reason for grading the hotel with two stars instead of one, even though he wasn't stationed at his post most of the time).

The room decorations get one star for style, but that wasn't a big problem. The real problem was that everything was incredibly dirty and covered with some sort of a mixture of dust and oil. The walls and the ceiling had cobweb and dark patches (mold or not mold, it looked disgusting). See the pictures. We were glad that one of the previous hotels during the trip didn't have a kettle so we had our own. Using the provided kettle wasn't an option upon a look inside it.

We booked a non-smoking room. The room was one of those that's changing from smoking to non-smoking depending on which way it was booked.

Not everything about this place is negative. The location is great. It's the last station on RER commuter train to Paris which takes 40 min to Notre Dame. The station is about 2 miles from the hotel and parking at the station is cheap (or free if you park on the street). If only someone gutted the rooms down to joists and replaced EVERYTHING. Replacing the cleaning person is a must.

This room met our needs--enough beds for three, enough space, some privacy (separate bedroom for adults). And it is in a great location--excellent for visiting Versailles or hiking or in our case visiting friends in the area. But the kitchen was very small, with rudimentary equipment and was a bit grungy. We had dietary reasons that we needed to cook our own food, and it was very hard to do more than make toast there!

Very pleased that we booked this non-chain suites hotel for an overnight stay when heading back past Paris: a wonderfully attractive setting on the fringes of an upmarket outer Parisian suburb, and the large balcony to our well-equipped, if compact and slightly tired, studio came into its own on a hot summer's evening: amazing to have a view only of lawn and woodland close to an RER service into central Paris.
