We visited France with a group of 52 Americans, with 5 days to enjoy Paris. Paris is beautiful, but our trip was destroyed by staying at the Balladins Bobigny. We had to adjust our plans for enjoying the sights and nightlife. On the first night, 5 women in our group were surrounded by what appeared to be a group of gang members. They were "saved" by police who were passing by the metro stop there. The police escorted them back to the hotel and advised them not to use the metro at night. The police warned that the area was not for tourists. The hotel keeps the front doors locked day and night, opening them by remote control when guests arrive. Our tour leader was robbed by a pickpocket 3 stops from Bobigny. The hotel was not customer-friendly. The staff was surly and unhelpful and restricted our group to only 1 1/2 hours use of restaurant in the mornings. They had only 1 coffee machine. We waited in a long line for a cup of coffee each morning. We could enjoy Paris only during the day unless we hired a taxi, at a substantial cost, for trips into the city. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone, period!
