Hotel Carina Tour Eiffel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It was a small boutique hotel but nice, excellent location! Nice staff!
I'm rating this a 2/5 only because the manager was apologetic for what we had to endure during our stay. Good - 1. location, about 15 min walk to eiffel, 5 mins from metro. Great lebanese restaurant and a couple other good restaurants nearby. Bad - 1. The guy at the reception (not the manager) was incredibly misbehaved and unfit for the job. I asked him for the wifi password over phone at 11:30 pm as wifi expires after 72 hours (and i was in the middle of an important work email) and he hung up after saying that if i wanted it, I should come to the reception to get it. When i went to the reception, he generated the password from the machine and held it up in the air above his head and kept repeating (shouting) that he wanted us to get it from him directly. I asked why he was shouting, he said i could go do whatever like complain to the manager and he didn't care. I was alone talking to him at midnight and he kept shouting at the top of his voice. His body language was very intimidating and calls for legal action. If we had more time in the city, i would have reported him to the police. 2. Some guests complained of theft from their room. 3. The bathroom door did not lock and the shower was outdated and it was tough to shower without getting the floor of the bathroom soaked in water. We asked for additional towels to lay on the floor but were told we could only get 2 at a time, so got 2 extra the first day and 2 on the second day. 4. The windows of the bathroom were see through and privacy while showering at night was an issue. We hung towels on the windows as a temporary solution. Ill try to attach a pic. 5. Breakfast was average at best but space was a bigger issue. At around 9:30 am when most guests came to get breakfast, we had to wait in line to find a seat. The dining area was small and cramped. 6. The room had no ventilation and we had to sleep with the windows open which made the room cold and noise from the street kept waking us in the middle of the night.
Spent three nights at this hotel during a huge heatwave in Paris. Even with windows open the hotel wasn't noisy, pleasant surprise. Perfect location near the Eiffel tower and quick access to the train to get to Versailles. Nice hotel at a very reasonable price in Paris.
This was my first visit to Paris and i'm glad i choose hotel Carina; it's location is excelent, at just 20 minutes walking from the tower, 5 min to the Sena river and just one small block to the metro and bus stations; there is also a convenience store just outside the hotel as well as many typical coffee shops and brasseries. Superb experience.
Check in was very easy, (No ID was required, what again, was a little strange on the other hand) Room is ok but typically small for Paris center location. Better don’t include the Breakfast meal. You get potted coffee and no croissants at all. Breakfast was a disappointment, and located in a very small lounge too. But all in all a average place to stay. Hotel is about a 5 min walk away from the Eiffel tower. We stayed 3 Nights, was nothing special but was also not bad.
The room was cozy and clean and most of the staff were great. The breakfast attendant however was quite rude but I guess in Paris that's understandable. So Overall we were happy!
We had a wonderful stay here! Our room had a tribal theme, which was interesting, however it was a very nice, clean, modern room. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the WIFI worked very well. The hotel location was pretty good. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, and it was a five minute walk to the nearest Metro station. We would definitely stay again!
