Hotel Prince Monceau3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
First time in Paris with my partner and we had an awful experience due to this hotel. It looks nothing like the pictures online and it misleads you in thinking you have picked somewhere decent to stay. Firstly, the walls are paper thin and the rooms are so close together you can hear everything that other guests are doing and saying. Our room was located right next to the lift on the second floor so we could hear people going up and down all night long. The air conditioning unit in the room worked but made loud noises, even after turning it off which kept us up the whole night. Our 'bathroom' was an absolute joke. It was tiny, with the shower over the toilet and it soaked the entire floor. The shower head was also broken, we weren't provided with proper sized towels (only hand towels) and there was no space to put your toiletries. The room was dirty and because I have bad asthma I could feel the dust in my lungs which made me feel very unwell. The floor was dirty, as was the stool they had plonked next to the mirror beside the shelf which was all squint. The view from our window was awful - all scaffolding and so no natural light provided. Guests on our floor were up until 6am and so we got absolutely no sleep as could hear them talking and carrying on as well as every single time they flushed the toilet. There is no soundproofing WHATSOEVER. All I could smell was cannabis from the lobby when I went downstairs at 2.30am to complain and they did nothing. They offered us another room which was a slight upgrade - more natural light but it faced the main road and could hear cars and motorbikes going past. The air conditioning made that same terrible noise and I could literally pick the tiles off of the bathroom wall - the place is an absolute DUMP and it is dirty. It is not 'recently renovated' as it suggests on their website and the wifi is NOT free as they advertise. Please take my advice and pick somewhere else to stay - spend a little more if you have to because they don't deserve to have your money. I tried to get my money back but they refused and so have had to go through Booking to try and get them to negotiate. Thankfully I had a credit card to book another hotel and get away from here to try and salvage what we had left of our first experience in Paris.
I was able to book Prince Monceau at short notice and at a time when hotel space was extremely hard to find. On the plus side, I was sheltered from the weather and able to come to Paris at a very busy time. I had a bed and I found the room was clean, albeit remarkably unexciting with only a very small space to walk to the bed. As I has no plans for dancing, only sleeping, this was adequate for my 2 night stay. The air conditioning was very quiet when in operation, which is better than many more expensive hotels I have used. However, I did have to negotiate to get it switched on from thee main desk, even though the external temperature was 38. I was less successful at getting it set to my required temperature, but just having it on was relief enough. The most interesting - even quite charming- aspect was the well-presented stone cellar restaurant where breakfast was served. Of course, it was continental breakfast which is too sugar-rich for my liking, but expecting American/English breakfast in Paris would probably be culturally unreasonable. The standard was reasonable for those who like that but I've definitely eaten far better baguettes (lighter, crustier) and croissants (less soggy). Cheese was sliced, processed cheese in individual wrappers. IN FRANCE !!!!!!! The home of 365 cheeses. Only in America have I seen this type of cheese offered! How France has changed!
Don't walk run when you see this name Hotel Prince Monceau France. They have the worst service ever!!!!! They don't provide the bear essentials, like toilet tissue functional television. Their tv goes off on increments of 15 minutes at a time, after that you have to go downstairs and have them reset it. It happened to me so, I went downstairs to the front desk asked the receptionist if he could go to m room and restart the television, said he wasn't going to that I should stat fixing it because he could'n leave the desk. It is also "strictly prohibited" to eat in the rooms. If you do you'll get charged 40 euros for the cleaning up after you. And there's is no free wifi. They charge for two euros per device daily. Then there was an incident about me needing toilet tissue so the cleaning lady was in the with her supplies < I saw the toilet tissue and I took two tools of it. In one or two minutes the receptionist came banging on my door asking me to give back the toilet tissue rolls. I do not have any more words to explain this? This is beyond my comprehension of severity horror. Needless to say I was booked for one week, I left after the third night and they are completely refusing on refunding me the rest of my money for days that did had pay for.
Very economical with space but well priced, excellently located and very friendly staff. I would recommend to friends and family. It's close to transport links, the metro is a 5 minute quick walk away and the train station is a stones throw away.
They made me wait forever at the front desk because they were on the phone with the manager who was shouting at them. They tried to give me a single room beacause I was on my own, when I had clearly booked a double room. They didn't offer the internet when I checked in, and I had to call back the front desk to ask to pay for it since it is not free. They didn't have any equipment to iron my shirts. Least helpful service I have seen in a long time!
I had to go to Paris for three days and needed a modest hotel in 17th arrondisement near to my business contact. Hotel Prince Monceau fitted the bill ideally. Although relatively small it had recently had a facelift and was very comfortable. The rooms although on the small side were nice and very clean as was the bathroom. The shower was powerful and towels in good shape. Whilst I did not take breakfast at the hotel the breakfast room looked inviting. There are a number of bars and cafes in the immediate vicinity all very reasonably priced. I am very happy to have found this gem and will be returning in October.
It was very good To find a decent hotel at a reasonable price in Paris is not so easy I enjoyed my stay in Prince Monceau very much, everything was good and clean Beds confortables and rooms with enough space to put an extra bed.
The location of the hotel was pretty good, it wasn't very expensive and the beds were very comfortable but the room was way too small, (I had to stand sideways to get into the bathroom) the receptionist wasn't the friendliest but I think that is just the french in general, also there were no English channels on the tv (I know I'm in France but it's nice to watch and hour of English tv before sleep) in conclusion it's not a very nice hotel but it's cheap, not far from city center and somewhere to sleep
I stayed at this hotel between 16.11.2014-20.11.2014 for 4 nights. I don't know where to start to talk about this terrible hotel's issues. The rooms were so dirty that there was nearly 1 cm dust everywhere. The wi-fi was not free, it was 2 Euro per-day and the connection was awful. The heating radiators were not working so i asked about the receptionist that if they can do sth about it on my 2nd day morning. I came to my room at the evening and the radiators were still freezing and saw that they put a BLANKET on my bed :@ . The aim of this hotel's management is rip off people. I asked the middle eastern looking receptionist guy for a 24 hour wifi. Gave him 20 Euros. He gave me back 8 Euros. And he told me 'i thought you gave me 10 Euros'. I took back my money with a lot of discussion. Never go this terrible hotel if you care about your psychology.
It was a very good WE with my wife . When we came at this hotel, the staff helped us for the bagages, the staff was really helpful and friendly . For us , it was a very good hotel cause our room was cleaned ! It's very important for us , it was very clean and equiped . The bed was comfortable. The room had a romantic interior . We had a good room for a couple. Then , we took the breakfast which was perfect, some sort of tea,bacon,fruit,etc .... That was a real breakfast ! The hotel is close to public transport,Notre-Dame and others important places in Paris . Well, now i know where to go if i come in Paris .
