Hôtel Acadia - Astotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I travel a lot to Paris and in my last 5 trips (in 4 months) I decided to stay always in Astotel. I stayed in 123 rue Sebastopol and 123 fabourg saint honore, this time do to the extremely expensive summer rate I had to chose this one ( the managers in the other hotels were to busy to help me and guarantee the corporate rate they previously offer me). The hotel is old and different from the pictures they show you on the web site. I asked for a room far from the elevator and they gave me one exactly in from of it. The room smells very bad,and to be honest in all the hotel there was this bad smell, the room toilet is old ,pockey, really not nice. The bed although is comfortable I was hitching all night long and I woke up with rashes. The air conditioning is impossible to use because it's so noisy and don't even work properly.The breakfast which they say the offer you is bad. Grey ham, fruit salad that stinks, really orribile! At 8 o clock they already finished the bread and the croissants . In the morning At the reception they didn't even bother to call me a taxi, saying that I have to go in the street to take one. I'm a women travel on my own with usually two big suitcase, I would have appreciated a little bit of help. Especially in this case were there where two young guys at the reception doing... what.....? I don't know, certainly not there to help you. During the night instead there was a nicer guy who helped me and book me a taxi for the next day. The free bar in the room after the first day was never refilled. To make the long story short Astotel has lost a good client because from now I don't think I will go back to one of their hotel.
Stayed here in a spacious and comfortable triple room for 3 nights in June. The hotel is located in the Montmartre area, which is well-placed for restaurants and bars that stay open till late. It's also within about a 5-minute walk to a Metro station, which is also very convenient for sightseeing during the day. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. One in particular went out of their way to find us an Uber ride to the airport, negotiate the price with the driver for us, and carry our baggage to the taxi. Thanks a lot if you're reading this! :) Some drawbacks though. Being in the basement, the breakfast room was quite warm and humid, especially given our stay was in June. Breakfast lady wasn't very communicative or helpful, but I think she did her best given she was on her own each morning serving a room of hungry guests. Room cleaning times were quite odd and somewhat annoying also. After spending a day out and wanting to prepare to go out in the evening, we came back consecutive days in a row to a room that wasn't yet cleaned. Cleaners wouldn't attend to the room till about 4pm, which was a pretty late and inconvenient time. I would recommend this hotel for a stay in Paris, but think there needs to be improvement as far as cleaning times and breakfast is concerned.
We were here in couple for 1 week of vacations. The hotel rooms are well spaced and equipped with all the necessary stuff to make your stay a better journey. The mini bar is free in each room filled with water, juices and soda, and they're filled each day. At the reception there's always coffee, juices and snacks, all free for the guests. The attention is really good and the breakfast place is a little tidy but is filled with many choices for a nice breakfast buffet. The location of the hotel is very near from Subway stations and Montmartre. Highly recommended and not an expensive hotel
It's a nice hotel with a nice staff located in a nice zone in Paris. It's not so expensive, so it has a great balance for some days in Paris. Breakfast is quite good for the price and they also give some desserts in the afternoon and evening. There is no restaurant for dinner in the hotel, but you don't need it, as the hotel is surrounded by many restaurants. The room is a little bit small and old, but it's clean.. and for this price we couldn't ask for more.
Overall we thought this hotel was fine to stay at for a few days while in Paris. + The rooms are very well soundproofed. We couldn't hear anything from the other rooms, or from the busy street below, when we had our window closed. + There was a cool mini-balcony in the room facing the streets of Paris. - The A/C didn't work for our entire stay. We notified the front desk staff immediately after check-in, who assured us it would be fixed promptly. When we asked about it again two days later, all we got was a dismissive shrug. - The bed in the room was unbelievably hard and uncomfortable. After two day we conteplated sleeping in the chairs to try to get some rest.
This is a nice little hotel, and I would definitely recommend a value for money stay here. The area is absolutely fantastic: a short walk from the metro stop 'Grands Boulevards' (making travel to anywhere in the city very easy); plenty of cute independent shops (definitely recommend a trip to 'La Mère de Famille' - a beautiful sweet and chocolate shop just around the corner) and eateries nearby (Chartier and The Hard Rock Cafe for those of you who like the tourist traps, plus smaller, independent restaurants and takeaways) and a handy supermarket right opposite. The only slight downside is that this particular street and area seems popular with the homeless and beggars - not that they were ever any trouble - but it isn't nice to see every time you go to and from your hotel. The staff are polite, friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but have everything that you need, including a complimentary (non-alcoholic) mini bar and air conditioning. The breakfast is varied and tasty - the only minor issue that we found was how hot the breakfast room was. I am unsure as to whether it is always so hot in there, or if there were problems with the air conditioning, but it was uncomfortably warm - especially when eating. The most appealing reason to choose this hotel is the provision of daily snacks and drinks available in the reception area. After a day of sightseeing, this is a most welcome addition. Although we didn't take advantage, you can also enjoy the refreshments in any other Astotel hotel chain in Paris.
Of Astotel's hotels this is one of the smaller and more basic ones, yet in our experience it was a nice and comfortable stay. We had a twin room on the top floor which was very quiet and a good size. Being on the top floor we had a velux window with built in black out blind leading to a perfect sleep. The bathroom was a decent size, though the shower sometimes lacking power. Unlike a couple recent comments our air con worked very well, particularly as it was 30 degrees outside in the daytime. Out of the window we could see the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur which was a welcome suprise. The breakfast was very tasty, a great range of food which seemed fairly fresh. Primarily the food is continental style, but they also had cooked scrambled egg and sausages. There are two rooms for you to sit in, one of which was quieter and cooler due to being away from the food. We also made good use of the afternoon/evening free snacks and drinks. At Acadia itself this is served in the reception, Hotel 34B which is less than 100m away has a similar range of food but served in a very bright and airy conservatory area. Take the benefit of their facilities which staying at the slightly cheaper hotel!
Was unfortunately booked here for business and it was dreadful. Room was tatty and dirty. Aircon was incredibly noisy and didn't work. Bathroom was the pits. No hot water and really not pleasant at all. On a noisy road so you either stay cool with the windows open and don't sleep or you close the windows and overheat. Reception didn't seem to care when the aircon issue was mentioned. I checked out after the first night despite my company having paid for two nights. No apologies from the team. This is basically a youth hostel style place - great if you're back packing but otherwise avoid.
I stay in this hotel every time I visit Paris because of its services (free open bar included) and because of its friendly welcoming staff. However my last stay proved that I need to find other place next time. The drawer doesn't open, but who uses it? French TV channels don't work properly, but it's in the whole hotel and not only in a sopecific room and we can do nothing till Thursday (I left on Sunday). The new manager keeps her smiles for new coming clients, but the guest who has a problem is an annoying troublemaker. The hotel doesn't have a program for loyal clients and if you ask a discount for your loyalty they make you feel like a beggar. However I should notice the good breakfast, the great kitchen staff (Patricia and Pelagie) and of course the central location close to bus stops and metro.
Staff friendly and helpful. Great touch having complimentary snacks and drinks available afternoon and evening, as was the complimentary soft drink mini bar in room. Only negative is, it was way too hot in our room. Was told air con is not switched on until July. Could not leave window open during night due to noise from street, so too hot to sleep well.
