This property has the potential to earn a higher rating; however, their "free internet" was iffy at best and usually none-existent. This was a major nightmare for my travel mate who was on a working vacation and often at risk of missing important deadlines due to the spotty internet. When you could get internet access it was only for about 5 minutes and then the network connection would drop. During my 6-days stay, I probably tried to log back on to the internet at least 100 times. We even had problems with the computer in the lobby. Staff also was iffy. While they were all very polite, some were great while others were cluelessly inappropriate. As we returned rather late from dinner one extremely cold, rainy evening, the desk clerk yelled out to my travel mate just as we were about to enter the hotel. When she walked over, he clerk asked her to stand in the street to hold the parking space directly in front of the hotel so that he could repark his Mercedes. Turns out his car was only 3 cars down from the space he asked her to stand in the rain to hold! Although the hotel is kept clean, their housekeeping staff was pretty much the same. Some days they didn't bother to remove or replace dirty dishes. During the entire stay they only provided one tiny bar of soap for two people for both bathing and washing hands at the sink. Fortunately, I always travel with my own brand of soap. They also always had to be asked for enough towels. On the positive side, the location is great. There are restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores directly across the street or within a couple of blocks. It's also very close to the metro and by French standards, it's not too far a walk to some major landmarks like Norte Dame. I didn't try the breakfast, but my friend thought it was a good deal for the money. Overall, if you don't need or care about the internet and like us, don't mind a small room, this property might be okay for a value-conscience traveler because it's definitely clean, quiet, and well-located. However, I won't return unless they can assure me that they have fixed their internet connection problems.
Wen enjoyed our one week stay here. It is clean, tidy and modern and it is an easy walk down to the river to start tourist points. The rooms is small but functional as is the bathroom. This is the norm in Paris I think. The staff were all nice and friendly ( with the exception of one gentlemen who seemed very irritated when we dared interrupt to ask for something - he was a bit intimidating) giving good advice and directions in very good English. The restaurant area is a very short walk also and a very nice area to go to get any type of meal. Breakfast is very simple but good quality. Good value we thought.
Genuinely don't know where to begin with this one. For starters we seemed to interrupt the receptionists lunch when we arrived, she wasn't too keen on helping us at all! Couldn't wait to get rid of us and not a single smile throughout our whole check in experience, it was nowhere near what was advertised! Our room was less than half the size of the one that was shown in the pictures but it was very comfortable and the shower was absolutely immense! Best shower in a long time.. Every night when we came back to the hotel we had to go down to reception as our card wouldn't work after housekeeping was in the room! The black gentleman in reception was absolutely ignorant, I asked him for an adapter for my girlfriend as she needed it for her hairdryer and we forgot to pick one up!He quite aggressively told me "10 minutes" as he handed it ober which i just thought was very rude.. When I thanked him after I brought it back he didn't even respond to me. then when I wasn't feeling great I asked my girlfriend to ask reception for some water as we were not sure if the toilet tap water was drinkable. He told us no..? A hotel with no drinking water are you kidding me? Absolutely disgraceful .. then we wanted to have tea we boiled the tap water only to find the milk in the room was gone off and came out as one big lump. With that went any appetite for the continental breakfast. I seriously regret not consulting trip advisor before booking this hotel. The only nice person we met during our stay was the black haired lady who kindly helped us print off our Disney tickets with a smile and was always pleasent and the gentleman who helped us check out! So basically wouldn't be reccomending this this hotel as we felt the cons well outweighed the pros, the BW website said the staff were completely obliging but I'd say that they are completely hit and miss and it just depends on who you come across. Have nothing against best western as I stayed with them in LA and had a fantastic stay!
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at this hotel, and while the location, and staff were good, the room was rather small, although we have since been told this common for Paris. Our disappointment mainly stems from (1) The size of the lift, barely could get two people in it, let alone luggage as well (2) The breakfast, that was prepaid, consisted of cereal, boiled eggs, that you cooked yourself, any other form of eggs would have to be paid for , stale bread for toast that you made yourself,croissants, and pancakes which I think were the same ones every day, or so they appeared. All this for $381 Australian dollars a night. I do not think so. Our advise when in Paris, get your breakfast on the go, plenty of shops to choose from. We definitely will next time, and at a different hotel. Hooroo Garry Fitzpatrick and Margaret Wasiak
Hotel was nice, despite not being a 4-star or above. In fact, I don't have any complaints other than the police coming to my room and barging in. (Yes, you heard right) I had checked in Monday afternoon (9.25) and immediately took a nap afterwards (I was tired from traveling). Next thing I know (almost an hour into my nap), I hear the voices of men coming from outside the door. They knock, I hear someone yell, "police", and I get up to put on my pants and get the door. But before I get a chance to put on my clothes (I was in my drawers), they open up the door and make gestures with their hands like "we're sorry" and they back off. Clearly, I was not who they were looking for. So I go downstairs after my nap (let's say an hour later) and tell the guy at the front desk (he's the only person working there at the moment), what happened. He barely speaks English, but he basically discredited my story of it being the cops and said, "it was the maintenance guys". Look, I know what I saw and what I heard. And if it was the maintenance guys, they still had no reason coming inside that quickly...that was a major disappointment. I will say, the hotel was very clean and in a great location...great proximity to restaurants, bakeries, street food vendors, grocery stores, and the metro was a less than 5 minute walk away. However, this is the type of hotel for someone constantly on the go, someone who just needs a decent spot to rest their head. The room was small and kind of pricey, but that's Paris for ya! If that incident didn't happen, I would have given them 4 or 5 stars.
Good location. Recently Updated hotel in old building. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Loved the feel. Nice queen bed in a small room. Two complaints: WiFi is so spotty that it is useless~ even downstairs computer would not attach. Cannot buy just coffee~have to buy 7eu breakfast. Therefore, 2 coffees cost us 14eu.
Our tour group of 16 people from the U.S. and Australia stayed at this hotel for two nights at the beginning of our tour of Paris and the Loire Valley. Several of our tour group members came to the hotel in advance of the tour and stayed extra nights. Fortunately for my husband and I, we did not. Our sixth floor room was tiny - yes, I know all hotel rooms in major European cities are small - but this was really tiny. We couldn't even find the air conditioning until another member of our group explained where to find it! Some of our tour group members never got maid service. Our key NEVER worked, we routinely had to stop at the front desk to get it recharged. We will be recommending that the tour company avoid this hotel in the future. I do want to say that Laura, the front desk attendant, was exceptionally nice and called a physician for us from SOS Medical - she was great, and even the other members of the hotel staff were quite pleasant, but the actual facility needs improvement. If it weren't for our experience with Laura, we would have rated this even lower.
This is a small mid priced hotel in the Latin Quarter of central Paris (5th Arondisment) on main road and close to metro at Place Monge. Rooms are small but comfortable and very clean. 10 - 15 minutes walk to Notre Dame. Number of nice, busy restaurants close bye.
Clean hotel tucked into what looks like a former apartment building. Well located within about 15 minutes walking distance to the hot spots of the Quartier Latin. Has a nice looking sauna but it was out of order... Speaking for myself only, I found the room tiny with just enough room to squeeze along the walls to get around the (queen?) bed to get to the bathroom. There was a strong smell in the room which forced me to leave the windows open much of the time. Luckily the weather cooperated. No other rooms were available. I assume all the rooms did not have this problem or there would have been an uproar. To summarize, they seem to be trying to squeeze every last cent they can out of the property and I found the price too high for what I got.
We liked this hotel very much. It's located at a nice neighbourhood where there are a lot of restaurants and cafe's. The room was small but we had one on the 6th floor with a nice view of the city. AC was working perfectly too as it was 31 degress when we were there. The staff on the other hand were less helpful and friendly. Overall, i would recommend this hotel.
