Hôtel Bristol République3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This place is disgusting and poorly presented. The location is fine but it suffered from cracked tiles in the bathroom, permanent gouges on the toilet seat, a leaking bathroom ceiling, in ground dirt and mould in the bathroom, no soundproofing between rooms, walls, outside and exceedingly rude customer service. I only stayed one night and my friend who was in another room decided we would pay for another hotel. I was unable to sleep last night due to the noise outside of people laughing, screaming, metal banging, and loud trucks. One of my pillows smelt of cigarette smoke and a dirty uncovered pillow was left on my bed. The person at reception did not ask us why we were leaving with two more nights of two rooms. This has obviously happened before and management obviously do not care. There is no air conditioning. It was funny to hear a day trip person laugh when we stated that we had changed hotels. Never book this place if you would like a place to sleep that is vaguely clean.
This hotel is very very terrible. It is very old and dirty. The receptionist is incompetent and unpolite. If you ask for some information, they answer bothered. The room has not air conditioning, the curtain are dirty and crumbling. The bathroom is old, dirty and the bath has yellow spots. The bed linen and towels have never been changed. The elevator is broken and little. It is very caustrophobic. the breakfast is a bad joke. Stay away.
You'll get what you pay for.. its location is really great, close to the metro and cafes, bars and shops all around it Room was clean, between midnight & the morning you gotta ring the buzzer to get in It gets pretty hot in the room because there isn't an air conditioner
This hotel was okay but the worst out of the seven hotels that my husband and I stayed at on our trip to Europe. Note, we stayed at one other hotel in Paris that was less expensive than the Hotel Bristol Republique, and still that hotel was nicer and in a better area. It is not definitely horrible and is in a safe and good area, but the rooms are very small and the hotel charges for wifi and not for the entire day or entire stay, but by every couple hours. The worst was that our room was right by the elevator which was extremely noisy. However, we did like that the hotel provided luggage storage the hours before check-in since we arrived early and we were able to go have lunch without having to bring our luggage along.
We stayed 6 nights. Never coming back again. Better pay a little more than stay in such a dirty room. Pretty old furniture, dust all over, dirty and old bathroom. The good location is the only plus. Don't buy the breakfast( a croissant, zero taste coffee and hard rock bread with butter and jam)
I used to live rue de Malte for holidays. Once I forgot the key to my apartment. It was late, it was July, I had to find a bed next to my flat, I decided to spend the night at Hotel Bristol République. Strange feeling, not unpleasant. Staff was amused by my situation and helpful. The small room was clean but in bad shape and not soundproof. However I slept well. For breakfast I moved to my favorite café next door. So to recap : nothing unforgettable except my odd experience.
I have never had to stay at such a dirty and shabby place as this hotel. It was terribly disgusting. The beds were smelly and did not seem to be clean, the windows seemed to be several hundred years old, the bathrooms were filthy and moldy, the curtain was grey with dirt (originally white) and even torn to shreds in the middle. The staff was grumpy, the breakfast was very plain and boring (same every day). It is at a very good location though, literally just a few steps from a large metrostation with several lines, so if you want to do endless sightseeing, this place might be ideal - there is no temptation to stay in bed for just a little while longer, or to sneak off for an afternoon nap. You will only want to return when you are so tired that you don't mind your surroundings and are willing to put your head down on a dirty looking pillow. I would never again go back to this place on my own free will (I stayed there as part of an organized tour) - but if you want to try something challenging, well, your choice...
When i booked the hotel i was really worried, because of reviews here, but when i arrived i calmed down. we arrived 30 early then it was said in check in time, but they let us in with no problem. room had nice furniture but bathroom was old one. location is perfect, next to metro Respublique and there are many eating points near (bars, boulangeries, chinese and turkish food). There was no free wifi, it costed 15 euros 24 hours, but in our room was CROWN PLAZA wifi signal which did not needed password. Don't choose breakfast, it costed 7 euro and was nothing. Finally want to say that it was very pleasant 3 star hotel with good price and perfect location.
I have been to Europe 7 times and stayed in 7 different countries. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in Europe. At nighttime, you literally step out of the elevator into a dark unlit hallway. The staff is completely indifferent. Don't be fooled. This isn't a place to stay and try and save money in the city!
When I booked the hotel I was a little worried from the reviews. They were from a long time ago and the photos looked a little tired. I'd booked via a website and the price was amazingly cheap for a 3 star in central Paris, you will find cheaper in the outer districts (not always in the nicest of surroundings, or in areas with no bars , restaurants or life) but not for somewhere slap bang in the city centre. Metro is 1 minute walk from hotel with 4 or 5 lines taking you to where you want to visit in no time. I called the hotel and spoke to the reception who told me they had renovated the rooms, corridors and public areas in the last 6 months, bedding was now duvets and may stay will be fine. So we came and we're pleasantly surprised. It's not the Ritz , it's a good basic 3 star, clean, simple, breakfast could be better as not a lot of variety and you can go to one of the nearby cafes for a breakfast if you want. Rafik (?) from the reception was always available to tell us the directions we needed to go when visiting Paris monuments. Wifi is not free , come on the hotel management , even McDo is free!! but at a small charge you can get a good connection on the hotels paying system. A good hotel for the budget conscious traveller, leaving more money to spend on restaurants, bars and seeing the amazing sites and museums of Paris.
