Hotel Murat3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The rooms were clean and staff were nice. Breakfast was simple and the same every day but still enjoyable. The hotel is situated about an hours walk from any of the tourist locations but was right next to a metro station with good links to everywhere. The hotel is old and so were the windows. There was a lot of noise from rooms above, people climbing the stairs and from the street outside which quite often made it hard to sleep. It was and alright hotel when all we needed was a place to rest our head after long days of sight-seeing.
The hotel is average. The staff doesn’t speak english, only one young guy who was at the desk when we checked in spoke English, the rest of the time we had to communicate by body language. The staff was very nice though. We stayed in a room facing the street. The windows are old, so there was always a lot of noise and we had trouble sleeping. The hotel is right next to both bus stops and the metro, so it was easy to move around the city.
The hotel is so and so: the rooms are characteristic, but small and without airc (by the time we were there). Price was overall good, but keep in mind that is not central and without parking. Not really clean. Breakfast was freaking awful, with old eggs and radioactive pink ham. The staff was sometimes nice sometimes rude, so I am not really sure if I'd come again.
My Partner and I arrived at 1300hrs we were told we could book in to the room from 1200hrs we were told the room will not be ready until 1400hrs. When we got to the room the bin was full, the window over looked a wall, the door you can see a lot of light when the door is closed, only one curtain no curtain for the other two windows. you can see people in the next room and the floor above... the elevator is noisy you can hear it from your room, We took the bin to reception they said oh well but you have got a big room they seemed not to care. In the morning we spoke to a member of staff person at reception (a student who was very pleasant) who said well you could of change rooms but we were not offered this option. The breakfast was ok apart from the Woman serving could not speak one word of French or English and when you ask for anything she just looked blankly at us.. We picked this hotel as my partner and I like staying in hotels that are small businesses and help these businesses thrive.. we paid around £150 for just one night but if I had booked at the last minute I would of got it at half the price.. the hotel is not worth the price..
This is a very basic hotel. No facilities in the rooms. We got bit by bed bugs on the last night!! They refused to give me the contacts of the manager. Also we only asked for the night stay to be compensated and they refused and say it's nothing to do with them. No customer service. Stay well away. Dirty rooms, very overpriced for the room. Would not recommend to anyone. Receptionist are rude and not helpful.
Reading the reviews on here after I booked made me slightly worried about what I was going to put myself through. I'm pleased to say that I was wrong in thinking it would be an awful hotel. The hotel was amazing and on our first day we were greeted by an extremely helpful gentleman manning the front desk who gave us a map and told us how to get everywhere in Paris. The review that said the hotel is far from the centre of Paris is quite frankly wrong. Me and my partner walked to the Eiffel Tower in 30 mins along the Seine which provides a lovely backdrop for a romantic walk. I'd recommend everyone to do the walk along the river at night because there's nothing quite like seeing the beauty that is the Eiffel Tower lit up in all it's glittery wonder. We never needed to use the Metro during our week long stay, so save your money and use the bus. The bus 72 takes you to three of the biggest tourist destinations in Paris (Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame) We only managed to make breakfast twice during our visit, the food wasn't bad (we just overslept). Breakfast offers you the basic continental breakfast which is what you'd expect for the price you pay. The room itself was perfect for two. We had a lovely little balcony that is perfect to embrace the French lifestyle of secretly smoking out of the window. The room was clean and housekeeping came every day, even out of their hours of work if we needed something they would always be willing to help. The rooms were recently having air conditioning installed which is perfect for those of you that don't want to listen to the bustling Parisian life outside your window There are loads of restaurants nearby the hotel which offer a huge variety. Our personal favourite was an American style restaurant named Indiana. It's located just on the corner about 50m outside the hotel. Try and go during their 'Happy Hour' between 17:00 - 20:00, they offer half price cocktails (AMAZING) and their 5 euro calamaris is perfection (We had it quite a lot ((It's very addicting)). The Hotel also features a small old fashioned lift which I personally fell in love with (I'm not a fan of stairs). The lift just about fits 2 people and their luggage. From my experience I could barely hear the lift from my room so I wouldn't say it's "annoying loud". Overall, this is a perfect little hotel for people wanting to have a cheap city break and to explore Paris. Perfect for backpackers as it has all the essentials you'd need along with a perfect hub to go about your day. Me and my partner already want to go back because we fell in love with Paris and the area that is Porte de St Cloud.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. There was no air conditioning but an electric fan. It was very warm in the room at night so we had to keep the fan on all the time. Breakfast is very basic. Its right round the corner from a metro stop called Porte de St.Cloud. Easy to access all major tourists sights. There are lovely restuarants a couple of minutes up the road, one called Indiana is lovely. Hotel staff friendly and willing to help. Had to pay city tax when checking out which is €1.65 per day. Overall had a great stay in this hotel flr the price.
The hotel itself its quite far from the centre of Paris but very close to metro stations, there are no direct trains to central Paris e.g. Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe The staff are extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming it's like its a chore for them to be speaking to you. The bed is very hard and uncomfortable. The rooms are absolutely boiling, dark and tired with bugs all over the ceiling. The hotel is on a very very loud road you either sleep being boiling hot, or sleep with the window open which you'll hear people shouting and traffic all night long. There was building work on the hotel starting in the morning so you never got a lie in. I personally wouldn't stay here again but then we only paid £140 for 3 nights.
This hotel is in a convenient place as it is close to Porte de St Cloud metro station however we secured our room through a comparison site and so paid a much lower fee; there's no way I'd stay here for the hotel's listed prices. The rooms are clean and well-equipped but dark and warm. The entire hotel is quite dingy in fact, although the decor in the rooms is interesting with large tapestries on the walls. There is a rather quaint lift too, and you can just about squeeze two backpackers in there. We ate breakfast at the hotel and found they offered quite a range of options, including cereal and some cheeses and ham to go with your baguette and croissant. Fruit juice, tea and coffee was also available for guests to help themselves. My only complaint was that the breakfast area is very small, and so the tables were incredibly close together giving it a rather awkward atmosphere. The surrounding area has a pharmacy and some eateries, however we suggest sightseers (such as ourselves) buy a several day metro pass giving unlimited journeys as it will most likely work out cheapest, since there are great connections to the tourist hotspots on the metro.
Decent hotel in convenient location, very close to metro station. Rooms are tiny but quite clean, the bathroom was newly refurbished, very nice and clean. The bed was comfortable. As the hotel is situated on a busy road, it is a bit noisy but I was expeting it being in this location. No parking but you can park on the roads for free at the weekend. During the week you have to pay, Im not sure about the prices as only stayed over the weekend. Breakfast - typical continental / french breakfast included fresh baguette and a croissant with selection of jams, nutella and honey. There was ham and cheese also available. As the holet is small, the bar is also tiny with only a few tables available. Staff were polite but not overly friendly. Overall it was a decent stay for the money paid.
