Hotel Stars Dijon Sud0.0 out of 5.0

Wow. I've never actually put that much thought into whether the smell of sick can triumph over the smell of raw sewage. However, thanks to a night spent in the Hotel Stars, I now have the answer! I also never knew that a foul smell could keep you awake. But I know now! I would have gone to sleep in my car in the car park but it was freezing and as a lone female, possibly not the best idea. So I stuck it out, with the window wide open. This at least succeeded in nearly masking the smell of the sick, but the raw sewage came from the blocked pipes in the en suite, right next to the bed. It made for a sleepless, smelly and freezing night's stay. I was so glad when it was over. I arrived after reception closed, so there was no-one to ask for a change of room. Other points of interest include cigarette burn holes in the bedding (fortunately I was able to bring my own from the car) and stains (including a large feature presumably sick stain) on both the walls and the carpets, along with peeling, scraped paint on the doors. Oh, and the wifi didn't work, even in the lobby. Plus points: was quiet the night I was there, my car didn't get broken into and I survived! I'm not sure why I booked this hotel, I won't make the same mistake again! This would have been bad hotel accommodation in a Third World country, in modern day France it was shocking. If looking for cheap accommodation, a youth hostel is much nicer.
This hotel is suited for stop overs when travelling really. It is mega cheap and that shows in the room standard.. but when you are paying £30 a night.. what do you expect! There are a few fast food and restaurants nearby which is handy. The room is small and dated, but done the job for a one night stopover for us! Free parking is handy too!
Very very tired. Peeling paint, dirty bed blankets, rooms smelling of cigarettes. Lots of alternative hotels in the immediate vicinity, go to them instead. The only plus in the Chinese buffet restaurant 5 minutes walk away. Wifi only free for 60 mins
Myself my son and girlfriend were looking for somewhere to stay near Dijon for one night while we awaited our train the following day. True, the Hotel Stars was cheap, but we rolled into the car park and were immediately greeted by a group of unsavoury characters. Having checked-in we went up to the rooms. One glance down the hall set the tone for the place broken door locks and handles, peeling paint etc. The room my son was to stay in smelt very smokey, despite being a non - smoking room. The beds were very low and the mattresses tired, but the linen was clean. We decided to forfeit the cost and stayed at the Kyrdian in Dijon instead. Which was gorgeous.
Arriving in Dijon at 7pm we found a map to direct us to jean moulin rue. We took a tram out to the east of the city. Upon arriving on the road there was no Hotel stars and no one locally had heard of it! We phoned the hotel, we were at 'the other jean moulin road.' We were directed to the south of the city to a small town called Chenove, about a 40minute tram ride from Dijon Gare. Getting off the tram it was a 30min+ walk though industrial estates to the hotel. When we finally arrived at 10.05, the lights were off and front door locked! We phoned the out of hours number and were eventually let in. Pokey little room with tiny beds, no door on the shower, just a curtain. No breakfast included! Would not recommend staying here, even if it is cheaper.
What exactly would you expect for €41 euros? The ritz? Basic, clean and comfortable. We had a good night stay at a reasonable price. €10 more than the f1 but at least you've got the toilet in the room. Great restaurant called the molines blues 50 meters away. They are in partnership with the hotel so you get 15% off.
Stayed here overnight in December. It has very little to recommend it - smelly rooms, uncomfortable beds, noisy - please stay elsewhere.
The hotel stars calls it's self this as it is not worthy of any rated stars. Supposed to be in Dijon, well nope it is 9 kms out of Dijon, hard to find and right smack in the middle of wholesale shop hell next to a noisy highway. Full of dodgy lodgers. Breakfast was inadequate as was the facilities as a whole in this hotel. The blue and yellow decor of the dilapidated old rooms did nothing to cheer the place up. The shower cubicle in the miserable excuse for a bathroom was broken. We had to barricade ourselves into our room, as throughout the night our room door was constantly attempted to be opened by god knows who...... not good, not good, not good......
Hotel stars, I don't even know where to start,lets see ...the walls had mold growing on them that the mustard colored decor just couldn't quite cover up.the bed covers were so greasy that I suppose made it harder for the cleaning staff to get the discarded pubic hair off them,so maybe they thought they would leave the pubic hair on the pillows to match.the complimentary shower gel/shampoo and soap and stained towels, had already being used presumably in the black and moldy shower,the entire twin room was the size of a matchbox with a lovely scenic view out on to a scorched industrial site covered in rubbish with the tranquil motorway behind it,it was advertised as being in Dijon when in reality its in a separate town half an hour away.My friends and I would sincerely like to thank hotel stars for providing us with one of the best hours of our lives as we have never laughed so much,we weren't brave enough to stay the night as neither the window or door locked and the fear of being attacked by some over sized arachnid or insect attracted to one of one of the many sexual fluids encrusted in the bed covers was a real fear. Which brings me on the the smell.Wow my god it was one of a kind.if anyone has to spend the night in this hotel,all I can say is good luck and that I would highly recommend a park bench instead, it would be much cleaner and safer.
Apparently there is more that one "Rue Jean Moulin" in Dijon so be careful when you are trying to find it! Chenove is the place to look for-on an industrial estate well outside the city.... Staff were nice but unfortunately the hotel is grim. Bit old looking with some damaged furniture, it smelled of smoke in our (non smoking) room, there was a poor shower with a missing shower door. It is VERY far from the city centre, the bus is outside the door but it takes at least 40 sweaty minutes on a city bus to get into the centre.
