Hibiscus République2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Rooms where cleaned every day staff are helpful.. You have to buy Wi-Fi.. Great place to stay if you want to eat out for every meal as they don't have any services.. Not even a Jug or cup.. Close to food and shops a short walk away.. I don't mind no extras.. So I'd stay there again..
This hotel has some terrible reviews on here, but, as they say, you get what you pay for. I was a little doubtful when I arrived, as customer service was non existent and the concierge was taciturn to say the least. The stairs are spiral and narrow, but obviously original and in desperate need of decorating. My room was also in need of decorating too, preferably in a lighter colour. However it was clean and functional. The bathroom was spotless. Someone must have come in every day because towels were changed or the bin had been emptied. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and also spotless. I had a double room for single occupancy so had plenty of room. As for noise which others have commented on, this is a city location and everything doesn’t stop for visitors. Yes, there are furniture delivered outside in the early morning, but I am an early riser so wasn’t bothered. Really handy for the metro and a characterful neighbourhood. There are no souvenir shops so that is a fair indication of the type of area it is and I mean that in a positive way. All in all, a reasonable place to stay. I have tried to fill in the rating below, but it doesn’t work. However, 3 for service, 3 for room and 5 for value.
We booked a 3 day stay at Hibiscus. When we arrived at night, the reception clerk struggled to find our reservation, and when he finally did and we went up to the 4th floor, to our room, we found a rat running from under our door! If that weren't enough, the place was not very clean at all: inside the room and and the common areas. We came back down, discussed this with the clerk, and he actually said "if the rat ran away, everything's ok!". He gave us no options, and told us there were no vacancies for that night, and that we were to go speak to him the day after, and there could maybe be some vacancies... When we said we were afraid of staying, that we were thinking of leaving and that we wanted to make a formal complaint, he told us that we should do whatever we wanted, and if we were to leave, we should have left already. We ended up losing the money we paid, but sure could not stay there!
This hotel was cheap option for our 5-day stay in Paris. The location was great, near city centre, tube station 25 metres from the hotel. The rooms were very small, but with private bathroom. They were also clean and towels were changed daily. The TV didnt work, but when you plan to stay outside the hotel, this is not a problem. The look of hotel was very "parisian" and nice. However, right next to hotel there was some furniture company and they were making noise from early morning. We paied for breakfast which was in the hotel nearby and it was same every day. The coffe, the croassant and roll with jam and butter. You can not expect luxury from hotel of this price category :)
Don't even bother trying to get a sleep. From 6.30am each morning the furniture store in front of the hotel begins to make the worlds loudest noise in their loading bay. It's constant and sounds as though you are on a construction site.
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.
