Recent guest reviews
The recepcionist at night was not really nice and he didn't understand english very much, which is really bad for a hotel in a city as big as Paris, although he did try sometimes to make an effort (he was not really interested though). Also, the women serving breakfast didn't understand anything of English, which is not really good. The rooms were really small and thight, there were almost no space between the extra bed and my dad's bed, he coulnd't even fit in between the beds. Breakfast was really poor, didn't have much variety. Wi-fi didn't reach my room, was really weak there. The recepcionist when we arrived was really nice, really tried to make an effort to understand us just as the housekeepers, and thats is really valuable to me. The bathroom was ok and they put me next to the rest of my family, which is good. Really well located, next to the Saint-Lazare train station,to Fnac, lots of restaurants and close to the Moulin Rouge. The price was good for the quality of the hotel, not really expensive for an ok hotel.
I stayed in this hotel in May of last year with my partner. After reading a lot of the reviews for this hotel online, I was slightly anxious of what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised. Although I wouldn't exactly call this hotel luxurious, it has everything you need in order to enjoy a wonderful stay in the city. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were always clean. The TV in the room included English channels which I was pleased about, and the location of the hotel itself was excellent! I would definitely consider staying here again while on another trip to Paris!
To start off the hotel is located across the street I'm at your station and main train station. Please be in mind that check in time is to p.m. And they mean it. They allow you the store your bags behind a counter at the very front of the hotel. The room itself is Basic. We went for a private bathroom. Our room had two full size beds, TV, one chair, and storage space. It also had a very safe in the closet. The bathroom had two sinks with three drinking glasses, hand soap, and to amenity kits. There is a large bathtub with a shower massager. However in our bathroom shower had some visible mold on the shower tile. We have plenty of bath towels but no washcloth. This is the older hotel so they're awesome were in tears along the walls. Also the elevator is very small. For us the best part was a Wi-Fi signal was very strong and fast. I will stay here again but not for long period of time.
The location is good,in the real center, easy to get any direction. The hotel is nice and clean, staff is helpful. The room was bright and clean, breakfast wasn't various, it's the same every single day, and it's a little bit boring.
Location perfect close to the main shops and the Metro. people at the desk never smilling and not very opened. Room are very noisy ( noise from outside and inside: poor isulation); Further more they need a complete revamping and look dirsty. Housekeeping is very poor;A plumber would be welcome to fix the bathroom; Bed and matress very confortable. WI FI very slow and not secure. Youcan also enjoy the noise of the raiways and the substation!
Only stay here if you have an early train out of St Lazare. The place was cheap and only about a 3 minute walk from the train tracks. It is just very old, no AC, no upgrades except the flat screen TV. It does have free wi-fi. I did not eat at the over-priced breakfast buffet. Go across the street to the Starbucks in the train station. They have traditional French breakfast selections and a good view of the hotel.
The location is very good, next to the metro and railway station, but the staff is not helpful. The beds are terrible and old. The rooms are not sound proof and you can hear everything from the hallway . Ok it is cheap but I can´t recommend it.
From when I walked into this 'place' to when I left the service was abysmal. I was treated with total disrespect...given a pokey little room in the gut of the hotel which was hot & noisy I open the window for some fresh air & was choked with the smell of a very suspicious 'herb' smell!! I was supposed to stay for two nights....left after one night. The last straw was the rude man at reception shouting at me as I handed my key in & presided to walk to my driver stating you have to pay the city tax....which is less than 4 euros AND which I had paid on arrival to my pre-paid room!! Not to say there were people checking in at reception!! Steer clear....dreadful staff....dreadful décor....NEVER AGAIN! I want to be clear I did not select this place it was selected for me!
The biggest no-no's to me were: No mini fridge in the room. In my opinion all hotel rooms should have one. Quality of the pillows was so poor. It's also a big deal for me. At check out they made me pay the city tax although it was already included in the room rate, and the lady at reception was very unpleasant. Other than that it was quite ok! The bathroom was big and with natural light. The room was big for Paris standard. The breakfast was good enough, although I wish they had more variety. The sound proofing between rooms and halls is not great, so I advise hear plugs for a quiet night. The location is great, which is the main plus in my opinion.
Room: Impression to be bach in the 70's, terrible wallpapers, terrible deco, old, stinky, noisy... Employees: Unpolite, uneducated, not welcoming Location: Ok Price: Good price but I should have paid 20euros more to be comfy!!! A bon entendeur.
