Recent guest reviews

Unfortunately I did not look at the reviews here before booking as most hotels within our price budget were fully booked. Having paid for 3 nights, we only survived one night. This place is filthy, rooms are tiny and bathrooms (the size of plane toilets) have a horrible smell! Breakfast is disgusting. Reception staff actually smiled when we told them that we were checking out earlier!! HORRIBLE!! AVOID!!

We stayed over night here before going onto DLP. Check in was very easy, it was self check in as it was past 9pm The room was very clean and modern with a good TV and ensuite bathroom. It was small so might have been a squish for more than a night or two but fitted our needs perfectly. Hotel staff were friendly, easy to find, plenty of parking. It took about 7 minutes to drive to Sequoia Lodge at DLP

Me and the missus stayed for 2 nights at Balladins in Esbly. I must say ,friendly People behind the desk. Breakfast isn't that bad, although when it busy you have to wait for your petit pains and croissants and coffee because personel is Way to busy. From the outside it looks like a dodgy prison, but its a good cheap hotel when you going to Disneyland!

Horrible receptionists and dirty hotel. Stained pillows, cigarette burns on bedspread, toilet seat completely detached from fixture resulting in buttskating when getting on off, the list can go on. What made matters worse is the two receptionists we met (Sunday night 7/10/16 and Monday morning 7/11/16) refused to help us when they gave us two single rooms despite the fact that we paid for triple and quadruple rooms. When I spoke to the receptionist the next morning with the intention of notifying her about the toilet fixture issue (they DID switch our rooms but only after we threatened to call the manager), I was greeted with a "We're not open" despite the fact that she was working on the computer. Anyway, since when is a hotel "not open" when a paying customer would like to notify the management about a problem with a room? Stay away from this place, and if you are a manager of this hotel, perhaps you want to do a better job with customer relations and communication training of your employees. We will cancel our current reservation with this chain at another location in France we had planned to stay at. We prefer our money go elsewhere where cleanliness and respect is at least attempted and not overtly disdained.

I have bookd this hotel 2 stars for 3 nights as described in hoerl add I believed their littérature. arrived first day collected my key to the room and discovered that the room is out of order then change to another room then how my surprise was like choc. life is not bed of roses but the room was like room in 5 dollars bandgladesh hotels and supposed to be better room was like horrible, carpet dark from white, sheets whith wholes like second hand the toilets are leaking continiously; the TV flat screen has only the name the images are jumping coming and going just need stop, the shower has no head the water is coming like from fire people hose pipe, the chair is for 20kg humain crature not for 100kg or more otherwise you will come down. of course no air condidtioner. Oh breackfast at nothing left but you can have Glass of milk for 5 euros pasteurised I have stayed two nights and moved to another hotel asfter I have paid three nights in advance and when I told receptisionist I have decide to depart because of conditions of your hotel his answer was: Yes I know and we are sorry

The worst hotel I've ever stayed in. It was grubby and hadn't been cleaned. There were cigarette burns in the bed covers and the bathroom which was no bigger than a portaloo had mould on the shower curtains and grime in the bottom of the shower. The toilet hadn't been cleaned properly and there was grime everywhere. We heard scratching noises which sounded like rodents or possibly cockroaches in the room. We couldn't stay there any longer so ended up going to a different hotel. When we were waiting outside the hotel for our taxi there were lots of strange people coming to the hotel and the workers there were going up to the cars talking to them then they would drive off and come back a couple of minutes later but they were quite obviously not guests of the hotel and it was not a place I wanted to be in the dark. Worst hotel I've ever been to. They don't even have a lift and there was no lighting on the staircase which was a hazard especially when we were carrying large suitcases around. DO NOT GO HERE !! It is nothing like the photos that are on Expedia so do not be fooled by the laptop that they placed on the bed to look fancy cause it's disgusting. I would rather sleep in a tent and wash in a bucket than stay at this place. If I could give minus stars I would.

One look at hotel Balladins outside is an indication of what is on offer inside. The corridor was dirty in appearance and the room was not habitable. Left and went else where. Please clean up this place. We went to Hotel F1 close by it was very clean and the manager Omar is very helpful and friendly.

Got to the hotel at almost midnight. I do like the self check in but once we got to the room, it went downhill. The bathroom was disgustingly dirty, the sheets looked like that hadn't been changed and the blankets were stained, with what I don't want to know. I slept fully clothed and almost went out to sleep in my car. It was that bad. The shower was filthy and taking a shower made me feel dirtier. I stayed here last year and it was a very nice experience. This time, I had booked for the weekend but left this morning and found a much nicer hotel for just over double the cost. To me it is worth the extra money for comfort. I guess this placing being far out and away from everything is the cause for it's decay. I WILL NOT stay here again. Even if it was free.

This was a very disappointing stay. The outside is in need of painting and the grounds in need of a clean up. The rooms are very small although clean. There is no airconditioning. We were on the third floor and there was no lift. If you want cheap basic lodgings and close to Euro Disney this is the place for you.

Walked in the room and walked into the bathroom and there was pubic hair around the sink. The sink had rust around the tap. We walked in the room at the end off the day they had made our beds and gave us fresh towels thinking they were clean but actually had urine on them and on the sheats on the bed had wet patches. In the corner of the room there was a pile of dried noddles and dead spiders on the wall. the breakfast was horrendous there was a bread roll and a croissant
