The hotel is incredibly hot and you can not open the window and there is not air conditioning. The staff is really rude, they said they are multilingual but they only speak French and English. They yell at you simply for asking easy things as: my key is not working what can I do? The breakfast is a joke, you can only find coffee, bread, cheese and jam. The room is really small and have some weird remodeling parts as a door you can open leading to a wall.

We reached at night tired and our bags did not arrive on the plane frustrated and exhausted. Asking around no one seems to know the hotel which added more fumes to our unrest. Finally we managed to find the hotel and it was dark and the lobby was empty. The Clark Max received us and immediately arranged the room keys. The lift was just enough for 3 persons and we entered the room at level 4. The room was Without an openable window hot and chocking. Back to Max and he immediately upgraded the room to level 6 with openable windows The rest of the Stay was nice thanks to Max.

The hotel smells like they have allowed wet animals to sleep and piss in it all night. Especially worryingly, the restaurant !!The food for ‘breakfast’ is a disgrace. And packed away 15 minutes before serving time is even meant to finish. The area around the hotel deems unwelcoming although some shops and restaurants can be found which are nice. Best idea is to get a taxi to the main city , or better still, stay in the city, away from this hell hole! Rooms have no air conditioning and windows do not open so sweating and struggling to sleep . Beds like sleeping on concrete with dirty sheets.

Booked to stay in this hotel after finding it on a hotel deal website. On arrival we found the hotel to be updated and lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was similar to a Travelodge - basic but nice. Air con in room was broken, in a hotel room with windows that didn't open - in the heat of Paris ultimately led to poor, over heated night sleep. Breakfast was lovely, had the basics of cereal, toast, coffee, juices etc. On our final night stay we came back to the hotel to find our room had been cleaned (after putting their own 'do not clean' sign on our door. When entering our rooms we found a load of things had gone missing. We had left extra money in the room to ensure we had enough for our metro home the next day. Our purse had been gone through and all cash taken. Expensive make up brands were taken (baring in mind this is a small box room with both of us only taking 1 backpack on the holiday). Lipsticks, make up brushes from a small make up bag had vanished and other bags had been gone through. When visiting the guy on reception he took note and said we were to wait for an email after we returned back to the uk to see if anything had been resolved. It's such a shame - it's our first holiday as a couple - we had a lovely time and the hotel room was lovely - not happy that we are now returning home from Paris to the UK with items missing and money taken from us.

We have just come back from a 3 night stay The staff were all very friendly to us, though some more than others. The room was basic- very similar to a travelodge. We came to Paris to sight see, so weren't in the room much so it fitted us well. Only issue was the key card wouldn't work and we had to have staff let us in and out of the room. Breakfast wasn't anything special, cold hams/cheeses, cereals, breads. We went down about 9.30 and staff would still be replenishing the food. Hotel is about a 10 min walk from Porte Clichy metro station. It is quite a walk from the main sites, but we walked back from sacre cour area after a meal one night. It was about a 30 minute walk. The area is being updated at the moment and whilst there is many people in the area, I did not feel threatened as other reviewers may suggest. All in all a good 3.5/5, would return again.

The hotel was basic but okay, breakfast was poor and similarly to other reviews when stuff ran out it was not replenished. There was no bar so you couldn't even buy water. The area was very dodgy and really wasn't a safe place to be.

Our travel company accidentally booked a double room for 3 people. When we checked in, they stated we must upgrade to a triple room. Fair enough: except then they charged us over $100 to upgrade! (I had to pay 48 Euro upon check-in and then another 35 Euro at check out.) Aside from feeling cheated by the hotel, we found the staff to be helpful, especially in arranging taxi service and providing directions. The rooms were clean but small, breakfast was well-organized and tasty (typical breads, meat, and cheese with coffee and juice...get there early or you can expect a crowd), and WiFi was free and worked well. Beds seemed comfortable and clean. No ice machines anywhere. No alarm clock. No fridge in the room. The room safe key uses a key (retrieved from the front desk). A small TV with cable. Strangely, our doors did not have peep holes, but other doors did. The bar in the lobby was just a tease...never open. I would not recommend trying to walk to/from the metro stop with luggage, as it's over a half mile and you have to navigate a maze of concrete barriers and trash along the way, due to a tram construction project...once the tram is done though, things could be looking up. By metro, it's about a half hour to most tourist destinations in Paris. Conveniently, the metro also is an RER 2 train stop, which can get you to the Palace of Versailles. There is also a bus station nearby. There were some people peddling food (fruit and roasted corn on the cob) near the metro entrance, but they did not bother us at all. A few restaurants near the metro entrance, including a Burger King. Porte de Clichy (pronouced Kli-shee') is a suburb of Paris.

We stayed for 5 nights as a part of big contingent of conference attendees and were uniformly disappointed. Disbelieve the star ratings. My own experience with the service is appalling. The telephone in my room did not work and I was told it never worked! The hotel does not even give out toiletries, glass tumblers (plastic disposables are put in the bathroom), or the usual electric kettle/tea, small touches which make a difference. They refused to provide any of these items when I requested even with the assurance that I was willing to pay a deposit on it. The rooms overlook a flyover and though the double glazed windows help erduce noise they are stuffy. The only decent thing was the buffet breakfast. Avoid the hotel.

I stay in Paris and was staying in this hotel for 4 nights as I was in the middle of moving my apartment. I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights. The hotel is big and the rooms are very clean, the toilets, linen, sheets, towels, etc are proper and very clean. There is no bar in the hotel. I mean there is a bar, but they told us that they don't have a barman to work. There is a piano in the lobby. There is no food available except the breakfast. As there was no kettle in the room, I had carried some coffee pouches so I asked at the reception for it. "We are a 3 star hotel and hot a 4 star" was a response I got from the lady at the reception. For tourists it is a little far from most of the attractions that the city has to offer. It is also 10 mins walk from the metro.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The first step when we do check in, the receptionists are rude and unfriendly welcome. When they saw our passport, we are from Myanmar(Burma), they are laughing and questioning by themselves where is Myanmar(Burma). I explained the location and geography of Myanmar my country. They are speaking French and laughing again. I was really disappointed their manner and behaviour what they welcome their guest. Even they didn't move their buttock from the chairs to give the room keys. They should learn more about hospitality. The hotel is look like old. There are two small and slow lift. But one is broken. We stayed there for three nights. Till when we do check out , the lift is still broken. The hotel rooms are neat and tidy. But very small and narrow as like as matches box. When we are in the room there are no more space for luggages. I stayed in twin room for alone. But my friends stayed in twin rooms and they were uncomfortable for two persons. With the luggages there are no more space to step in the room. Our booking is including breakfast. when we do check in and asking about breakfast time. They denied our booking is not included breakfast. I shown them our booking which I print out they accept including breakfast. At that time the way they communicate to us was very rude. The next morning when we go for breakfast there are just only a few bread, boiled eggs and juice. There are three coffee machine. But whenever you press button for Espresso or Cappuccino. There are coming out but black hot water. No coffee. When we told to waiters and waitress they didn't taking care and it's happened the same things for 3 days. That's why I would like to suggest to others travellers who will read this comment should avoid this hotel. You will be regraded for the money what you paid. Find another hotel instead of booking this one.
