Hotel Nation Montmartre1.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Room on the 4th floor. Windows shut out the traffic noise. Good sized bathroom. Good sized bed. Clean. Doesn't get cleaned during your stay, apart from bed re made and towels re folded. Area is a bit dodgy, but right near a train station. Wifi isn't the best, but it works great during the day when most guests are out. The hotel did us good during our stay.
We booked this hotel at last minute as my husband travelled with group friends for the Euro, we decided later on that I might as well join him for 5 nights in Paris, the group of friends were staying near Gare du Nord area the reason we booked on this hotel to be near them (10mins walk or 1 stop by the metro). We booked and paid the hotel before reading the reviews, had we read before booking we wouldn't had stayed. But being fair, the hotel is not in the high end side of Paris, the Metro station are loitered with men selling cigarettes, but the location itself as near the main road is safe enough. The room, smallish but newly decorated, spacious ensuite, clean towels, kettle (but no tea/coffee) shampoo and body wash sachet were provided daily. We stayed in the 2nd floor with big window which we were grateful as weather were really hot that time and there was no aircon or fan in the room, really uncomfortable. The staff cons everyday to tidy up the bed but never clean, not even the floor. Flat screen TV with no English Channel. Tea/coffee dispensing machine near the reception at the ground floor. The hotel has steep spiral stairs with no lift, some rooms has no ensuite and has to use the communal small toilet near the landing of each floor, can't comment more as didn't used this facility. The staff are friendly and helpful enough when we asked directions. The front door were locked after 10 or 11pm I think, but there is always a staff in the reception near the door to help open the door if needed. It's about 30minutes by train from the airport and shuttle bus is available by arrangement only the previous day by the hotel. There is a small convenient shop beside the hotel or if you walk a street up at the back there's a big Carrefour shop, macdonalds, Starbucks and few restaurant and bars.... If I go back again? Although I never felt threatened for my safety, I would splash a little bit more to be at Notre Dame area which is equally cheap but better area, or somewhere else, certainly not the Champ d Elysee part of Paris.
I booked this Hotel? to enable me to be at the Euros from the 24/6/16 until the 2/7/16. Unfortunately I did not read Trip advisor reviews until after I had made payment and at that stage it was too late to change. I have read the reviews and agree with comments made by other unfavourable reviewers.The hotel is advertised as being in Monmarte, it is not! It is located in the Berbes district but within walking distance of Monmarte. The place is in an area which houses immigrants and refugees. As other people have written it is a dodgy area and you will feel quite uncomfortable being there. On my second night there I was followed after being dropped of by a taxi, by two males who blabbered on in French and followed me right up to the hotel door which was locked. On the 3rd night while sitting outside a Bar just across the street from the Hotel,I witnessed a Young family arrive in a Taxi and be dropped of just at the top of the street. As the Taxi driver began to unload their cases from the boot of the car, one of a number of men who loiter around every night picked up one of the families suitcases and attempted to make off with it persued by the Taxi driver. The male dropped the case and ran off and luckily the Taxi driver was able to retrieve the families property. As regards the accommodation, I stayed in a single room which was tiny and felt cramped. I lived out of my suitcase as there was nowhere to hang my clothes. Not even a wall coat hook! No wardrobe or drawers at all. I did not manage to get the internet working for 3 days.The communal toilets which are located of the main spiral staircase do not have any means of washing your hands after using them.This would simply not pass British hygiene standards.The hotel was advertised on Expedia as 2 stars, it is NOT! the plaque at the front door rates it as 1 star..I had a decision to make move to another hotel ( which would have been very expensive due to the tourists attending the Euros) or return home. I managed to get a flight back home on the 30th June cutting my holiday short by 3 days! If you are in any doubt about the area I suggest you search about it. Last year a Muslim extremist was shot dead by French Police at the bottom of the street the hotel is located on its called Barbes/Rochecourt.
First of all I think some of the reviews are very unfair. When we arrived we were given a room on the 5th floor but the very helpful man on reception took our suitcases up for us. The following day they relocated us to the 1st floor and moved our cases down while we were out and about. The room was plenty big enough for 3 people, very clean, nice comfortable beds. Bit quirky having the shower cubicle in the bedroom but it worked for us 3 ladies. The towels could have been a bit softer but were changed every day. All the staff we met were polite and helpful. We stayed for 4 nights and didn't find any of the people around the street intimidating. I would not have liked to share the toilet on the spiral staircase I would have been worried about falling down the stairs so make sure you book a room with ensuite facilities. We would have no hesitation in booking here again.
Lovely and clean. Big windows that open. Room on the small side but ok for 1 person. The winding staircase that goes up 5 floors could be difficult for some. As an elderly woman, I had no problem hauling my small case up to the 3rd floor though. Reception staff were courteous and helpful. This hotel is relatively cheap for Paris. I paid £198 for 2 nights without breakfast. Very close to Metro station and good buses. Unfortunately, the toilets were situated on the staircase between each floor and were really cramped. Best of all it's only 5 minutes walk from Sacré-Coeur!
I went to spent some days with my partner and the first day when we arrived the room and the toilet seemed clean but the next night when we arrived we realized that the domestic hadn't cleaned the room and toilet at all, the towels had been dried and folded but were the same ones and the toilet hadn't been cleaned and every day like that except on Sunday, that day the towels and the bed were like we left them, the whole room was full of dust, even the control remote of the TV was sticky. The WIFI password expired the day we were doing check out but at 00:00 so we hadn't been able to check anything in case we needed it.
If you value your safety DO NOT STAY HERE! We booked this hotel online after seeing the poor reviews and being three men from Los Angeles we thought "how bad could it be?" The neighborhood is quite literally in the ghetto of Paris and when we told our driver where the hotel was he turned around and looked at us and said "are you sure?". We had booked five nights there and when we arrived in the daytime it didn't look so bad (kind of felt like Philly or Detroit) we checked in ok and the front desk guy Bruno was ok (similar to most Parisians not trying to make friends but not necessarily rude). The room was actually ok and the mattress looked clean. We had booked for three people and they put a spare bed....IN THE BATHROOM. No joke. Also the toilet was in a closet smaller than a portapotty and you basically have to be a trapeze artist to use it. The shower was open to the room and we used a sheet to cover it (we also did this in Denmark so we were pros) The heater was stuck on high and we couldn't lower it and also the windows were broken and we couldn't lock them (which we thought a heroin addict would climb into the first floor window and eat us). Truthfully the room would have been ok (for European standards) but the location was next level terrible! Being from LA I'm not really scared of gangs or homeless people whatsoever but this place is seriously intimidating. It's steps from the Barbès – Rochechouart metro stop which is basically a portal to hell. The one night we stayed there we got off the train around 11:30pm and had to literally push our way through maybe 40-50 of the worst looking pimps, prostitutes, drug addicts, and generally aggressive looking people ever. A group followed is up to the door and the best part is that you don't have a key you have to be buzzed in. Now I want to say that I'm a 250lb tall assertive American who's been in many dicey situations and can defend myself no problem, but if you are a woman, a family, a group of girls, or anyone who doesn't want to get stabbed I suggest you pay a few more Euros and stay somewhere safe. We left promptly the next morning and got a great hotel by the Arc De Triumph. So much better! Don't waste your money, time, or sanity in this hell hole. Read the reviews EVERYTHING IS TRUE!!
Booked this hotel a few weeks before our trip to Paris. After reading lots of negative reviews online I was a bit skeptic but hoping for the best. Well, that wasn't the case. Everything you've read is true. From the moment we checked in we were greeted with an attitude. We are given our room on the first floor. Room had a bed INSIDE the bathroom. The Window doors would not lock. The Heater was broken and was stuck on. Making the room uncomfortably hot. Once returning from a late dinner I quickly realized the stories of the street gangs were true. There were tons of sketchy men, gangs, and prostitues wandering the neighborhood. We were followed from the subway stop and could not get into the hotel quick enough. Which by the way they lock at night. And you have to be buzzed in. Mind you I come from being born and raised in Los Angeles, and have seen it all. This was by far the most uncomfortable feeling I've had in a city. The next morning after we toughed it for one night. The 3 of us looked at each other and decided to move hotels. The front desk man looked confused and said "why?" As if he didn't already know this is probably an often occurrence. Even though it was a non refundable room. It wasn't worth our safety. And after calling the website we booked through. They apologized and refunded me. Mind you. We found a great hotel right in the center of the city on champs elysees between the arch and the Eiffel Tower for roughly the same price. Don't waste your time booking this hotel to have a hiccup in your vacation. Spend a few more bucks and stay somewhere in a safer neighborhood.
i stayed in this hotel with my 14 year old cousin. the hotel was nice, considering the Price and the staff was super friendly But the area in which the hotel is, is not very safe with shady guys standing around and yelling at the girls passing by if you are a couple , a Family or a bigger group no problem....but not if you are only girls
Dirty and disgusting. No lift, no service. small spiral staircase to carry heavy suit cases up. Nothing like photos and we booked the best suite on the 5th floor. Toilets on stair case stink, bed bugs. Extremely rude manager who laughs at you and refuses to refund anything.Sad to see everyone's faces once they walk into this hotel. Worse than the worst back packers you can imagine and we paid lot of Euros for suite. Drug dealers and prostitutes at door. Got sick there. Suite has toilet and bathroom in the bedroom. No cupboards or hanging space. Do yourself a favour and go elsewhere. My wife and I have travelled the world and I've never left a bad review but this one you really need to earned of.
