Hibiscus République2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Pros: Cheap; Great location within the city; The building has 'character' Cons: The rooms are laughably small; Bathroom door wouldn't close due to not fitting the door frame; Toilet stuck right up against the wall, making it difficult to use; Getting up and down floors was adventure in itself, thanks to the tiny stairs and even smaller lift; An ant infestation, which made for some unpleasant company If you're on a budget and going to be spending most of your time out and about in the city, this hotel may fulfil your needs, but I'd recommend spending a bit more on your hotel for a bit more comfort.
The hotel has a perfect location! It is in the center of the city , near Place de la Republique ! I guess in Paris location is the most important ! Room was clean , with balcony , hot water and clean towels. The hotel doesn't have wifi , but you can use Rixos hotel's wifi , which is in front of Hibiscus and for free you can catch without any problem :) i didn't take breakfast so i can't say anything about food , but beside the hotel , there is very cosy french cafe , where i was eating french breakfast and was paying just 6 euros 🙈 i was out all the day , so for me the hotel was perfect and good deal for money !
My room was claustrophobic looking to a small backyard which was enclosed to an iron cage. Almost no daylight. Bathroom was small, but but very clean and modern. To go up to the rooms, there was only a very narrow staircase to go to the first floor where the elevator was. Almost impossible to carry up to first floor a normal size suitcase. I was lucky to have only a overnight bag. Others did not!!! Breakfast was served in an other neighbor hotel basement (no windows). Only coffee and croissant or baguette 7€ and it was called "Petit déjeuner Parisienne" Needles to say I had my "dejeuner" in a nearby cafeteria's terrace in a sunshine. There are many, many nice places near the hotel where one can have any kind of meal. The Paris Metro is very near also the busses stop at Place de la Republique. Good thing about the hotel is that everything is nearby.
Very bad hotel,not clean,service terrible,they put other hotel picture but really it's not it I never think to see this hotel again Breakfast very bad,for breakfast guests go to other hotel I never seen like that hotel,there is not wifi They ask money for it They are crazy
The hotel is really well located, very close to Republic metro station and also has a patisserie, shops and restaurants within a short walk. The rooms are small but not in a claustrophobic way. Ours had a nice modern looking ensuite shower room which was clean and had a hairdryer. The room was cleaned and the bed made every day and we found the bed a little firm but perfectly acceptable. The pillows were quite lumpy, the phone out of use, the bathroom door didnt lock and the windows didnt really keep out much of the outside noise but these were all fairly small things and for the price and the location we didnt mind. It could have done with a fridge or hot drinks making facilities as well as more plug sockets but we would stay here again.
As the title says, the room was extremely close quarters but we did have a nice stay. Location is very good!(1 minute walk from metro) & surrounded by shops/cafes/restaurants. Only downside was no wifi
Everything is run down in this hotel. Rooms are dirty, worn, cramped & old. The only thing they don't lack, is HEAT! Choose a hotel with AC, if you go to Paris during summer time! The breakfast was a joke, but the coffee is strong & nice. My advice is to pick another hotel!
It was the cheapest hotel (Hibiscus) in this area with great location. Republique metro connects with 5? metro lines, some buses. If in need, you can go and return by foot from the city centre. We had a first day trip by foot to Louvre and back. When we arrived we were allocated to nearby Bristol hotel, didn't have breakfast. Didn't pay for Wifi, but you can catch weak signal from Crown Plaza. Nearby is wonderful boulangerie Aux Peches des Normands. The room is old, dusty, but we had view of Place de la Republique therefore very noisy from early morning until after midnight. The place could use essential renovation or just simply clean dust from curtains and everywhere, then there wouldn't be so much bad reviews. There was two comfortable beds, a table with one chair, flat TV, ensuite normal bathroom a good plus. Receptionist was friendly, explained how to reach objects.
A budget holiday that is in a good area of Paris REPUBLIC. This is not a family hotel or far from a luxery hotel and if you are looking for full service then its the wrong one for you. However my room was an adequate size for someone who wants a bed to sleep in at night with clean sheets but a small clean bathroom of shower washsink and toilet. And free French tv to watch. Close to Replublic metro and square. However I was able to walk half an hour to bastille and the louve too. Breakfast free a basic roll and croissant with butter and jam and coffee in the basement of the sister hotel next door.
my boyfriend and i stayed here in june ..its a simple hotel just a base to explore paris . nothing great about it breakfast was boring and not worth paying an extra .room baisc ,bathroom ok and i have stayed in paris many times and this was the worst hotel iv ever stayed at ..but had the best time in paris because we made it great ..just use it to sleep in ,if you have already booked it because it is easy to get to from GDG and the metro is just a min away and can get you all over paris .dont expect anything else and you wont be dissapointed .there is a little patisserie over the bridge past the mcdonalds they did great coffee and breakfast croissant much nicer than the hotel breakfast and some great little cafes around the square so like i said if you have booked already use it as just a base ..enjoy paris not the hotel !!!
