Unfortunately for me this was a business trip and I didn't have a choice about going anywhere else and having initially seen the pictures on their website I was very concerned but knowing I was only there for 2 nights I just went with it. Upon my arrival by taxi my initial fears became a reality when I saw the outside and what looked to be a very old, worn and dirty looking building. The check-in process was pretty straight-forward and they asked I settle the bill straight away, the staff seemed OK so no complaints there. I then progressed to my room (Room 301), before entering I walked through the hallway which was very badly lit, and a strong musky smell was flowing through, this made me anxious about my room. As I entered the first thing I saw all around the door frame was mould, not a great start, I decided to look around the whole room/bathroom being doing anything else and I came across the following: BEDROOM: - Mould & yellow stains on the walls. - Cobwebs on the ceiling and in the corners of the walls. - Thick yellow grease and dirt building up in the corners by the bed and around the furniture where cleaning hasn't taken place for probably a number of years. - Stains on the curtains. - Yellow sheets in the bed and very old flimsy pillows and duvet. - Stains on the main duvet. - Think stains all over the carpet (must be at least a couple of decades old). - Radiator which didn't work and was hanging off the wall including some kind of life form (a mixture of spiders and other parasites). - Lights with no bulbs. - A loose power cable just hanging, perhaps waiting to electrocute it's next victim (not sure if it was live but I didn't want to find out). - A lovely view of Fresnes notorious prison - great for sight-seeing. - I can't forget to mention the complimentary pair of flip flops which appeared to be made from some kind of recycled polystyrene - I was chuffed to bits to be able to take these home. BATHROOM: - Extractor vent seeping yellow juices (some kind of excretion of moisture probably due to years of malfunctioning). - A toilet that blocks as soon as you put one piece of tissue in it and that over-flows when you flush it but if you have the "complimentary" flip flops you'll be safe from drowning as they float. - Yellow tiles (that were probably white once upon a time). - General condition of wall and cabinet around the sink area felt loose and as if it was ready to crumble away. - More mould. The only positives of this hotel was the TV which actually worked and the water pressure in the shower was decent - yes I was brave enough to shower, more so because I had no choice. Considering this hotel cost me 170 euros for 2 nights I feel this is massively over priced for the state of this hotel and the customer service, if I was paid to stay here knowing what it's like I would refuse - it's disgusting. I suggest spending a bit extra money or going somewhere else. This is frankly one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody, I've had much nicer and more pleasurable nights in a tent!
It cost me just under €100 for three nights at this hotel, which is amazing. It was rather basic but it did the job. The staff were as helpful as they could be as they couldn't speak English and I couldn't speak French. It's location isn't the best, however its only around 20 minutes to Paris-Orly. It is about an half an hour walk to the nearest RER which takes you to the Notre-Dame region of Paris in around 25 minutes. There is a supermarket next door, though its not open for very long. The town of Antony is where the RER station is and its quite quaint but not a lot there.
I stayed there for a single night since the hotel is cheap and quite close to the Paris-Orly airport (14 EUR taxi to the airport - watch out because sometimes taxi drivers try to cheat with this). The hotel is old, and not well preserved. My room was in good condition and clean, though. Walls are thin, so it is a bit noisy. There is a grocery store close to the hotel. There was a disclaimer in my booking receipt saying that I could check-in until 23h, otherwise my booking would be cancelled unless I call in advance to notify my late check-in. I was planning to arrive late, so I phoned them, and basically they replied that it was ok, and that they didn't care... (well, then remove the disclaimer from the booking receipt). The guy at the front desk was a bit vague, he tried to charge me for 2 nights instead of one - he claimed it was confusion.
Try to search for better value..not worth money. Never seen as messy reception desk as here. The rest was the same, towels, wc in bad shape...i dont recommend for business trip. Other hotels in area may be more expensive, but still worth it probably...
My husband and I currently live in Europe and have travelled to over 13 countries and this by far is the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. First, we stayed in a non smoking room and everybody on our floor was smoking and nothing was done about it... even though the floor was non smoking. Secondly, the hotel staff is completely useless, they don't want to help you with anything and are completely rude. I tried to order pizza one night and the lady sitting at the front was on her cell phone and she did not care to help me AT ALL. Lastly, the morning we checked out the worker was LATE so we couldn't check out because the janitor was sitting in the front saying we had to wait for the worker to check us out. She not only came in 30 minutes late but proceeded to be rude and give me attitude the entire time, we almost missed our flight. Also, she couldn't even give me a confirmation saying we checked out. Don't stay here, it's not even worth staying for $10 a night.
I stayed at his hotel for business, for 11 night in total. Reception is always lost, they said my reservation was cancelled and I had to spend 30 minutes explaining what my total invoice has to be. They also charged me for breakfast which I didn't have and never returned the money, although I claimed. The elevator was off duty most of the time. As well, the corridor lightning was in the alarm phase all the time - you can only find your way by the emergency signs LEDs. Parking lot is behind the building in dark spot. Unguarded. Location is bad as there are practically not much to see around - just a typical dwellings. Good things - rooms are rather clean and restaurant has not so bad continental breakfast menu. To sum up - I would never come back nor recommend anyone to stay there.
Pleasant enough hotel. Just somewhere to lay your head. Staff not very friendly. Room clean and comfortable but bedside light not working and (room) hall light not working. On our last nights stay I notice we were only left 2 towels as appose to 4 on our previous nights and no bath mat.
Staff speaks VERY LITTLE English. I realize I traveled to France but basic communication in English should be available anywhere that markets to tourists. When we arrived we were informed the elevator was out (interestingly this sign was in English). We were given a 4th floor room and had to carry out bags up the single narrow staircase to that floor. There is no AC, which we knew going in. We were on the freeway side of the building and so sleeping with the window open was an adjustment. It was very loud. In addition to the road noise there were patrons from the restaurant/bar outside until well past midnight making plenty of noise and smoking which you could smell, even on the fourth floor. On the first night we tried to have dinner in the restaurant but nobody ever came over to ask us what we would like. After about 10 minutes we got up and left and just went hungry for the night. We were offered breakfast in the mornings for 10 euros... we opted out. Don't be fooled by the price. There's a reason it is so low. Stay somewhere else, you'll be glad you did.
I was on a business trip and it was the last chance. The bathroom was dirty, the shower didn't work and there was no light in the room except a small lamp. I complaint and they offered me another room with a strong tabaco smell. So I decided to stay in the room. The next day they cleaned the room properly, but the shower was broken until the third day and the light went on without working and the shower even the fix does not work.
Small room, only one power socket for the whole bedroom (near the desk, far from the bed). The staff was friendly but not always at the reception. The food for dinner was cheap and correct and the service was good. Everything looked a bit old in the rooms.
