No air conditioning! Noisy location !! You'll hear the noise from the bar restaurante -cafe right across the street open late and the next morning garbage trucks will wake you up.
Would totally stay here again! Great location, nice staff, clean and basic accommodations, great shower!! Free wifi and mini fridge in room made life super convenient
I wasn't impressed, there wasn't a tea nor cafe pot in the room so one is obliged to leave everytime to take a beverage. Cockroaches were in my room and there wasn't any heat... Not such a great reflection of an African/Eruo blend... So for a business traveler who has to sometimes work fromt the room, paid wifi and all of this was over priced and not worth it. The area is great and fine next to the Folie Bergere, yoga and metros. A safe area at night for women.
The location is good and the staff members were cool with one speaking in English and another in Spanish. The price was fair, but if you go, you will see other 3 stars hotel who seems better in terms of infrastructure and size of the rooms and they are not far away from each other. The small rooms, elevator, and in general other services, makes me wonder the difference with other 3 stars hotels which are just next door, and has internet service, bigger common areas, and more "luxury/comfort" all around. I would sacrifice the Safari theme for more comfort, honestly.
The air conditioner was not working so everyone was given fans on check-in. The guest book had a comment that this has been going on for a year so did not seem temporary. We were on the 6th floor and had a room with a sloped ceiling that I could not walk around in without stooping down. The room was quite dirty with a large red wine stain on the wall that looked very old. We stayed one night then switched hotels.
What we did? We travel and visit Paris. We wish the air conditioning would have worked. There were couple of very hot days when we had a hard time staying and sleeping in the hotel room without any type of cooling except opened windows. Comparing with other trips in Europe, this hotel was average.
We were in Paris on vacation and the hotel served our purpose since we were basically only there to sleep. The room and bathroom are old, which we expected, but the bedding and drapes were old and worn (not chic-ly safari!)... although the sheets and room were always clean. It was an easy walk to the metro, and at night it seemed like several of the places were hangouts for younger adults. There were people walking around at all hours, so it didn't feel unsafe, although I'd be extra cautious if we were walking alone. I might of been wrong, but I thought the hotel offered free wifi. The hotel person said it was free to connect, but then you had to purchase time to use the internet. Wasn't happy about that. We had 3 to the room, so we had a sofa bed for the 3rd person and it was squeaky, lumpy and support-less. The other bed was okay, but we had to rotate who slept on the sofa bed because that person didn't get a good night sleep and had back and shoulder issues the next day. The room got kind of stuffy and the weather was pleasant enough to sleep with the windows open, but for a couple of nights there were individuals yelling and screaming (we were surprised no one called the police... although several people yelled "Shut up!" Ugh.) and then every morning the trucks made so much noise! So I was up every night to close the windows. I asked about the AC and they said it was broken and should be fixed soon, but they didn't know when. I had read a review that said the AC was broken earlier in the year, so I don't think they were truly honest about the whole AC availability. They said they would look for a fan to give us, but couldn't promise anything. I didn't expect to get a fan, and we didn't. I had just been to Paris in Feb, 2010 and stayed at an apartment in the 16th district. The area was so much nicer and quieter. Next time I'll stay in a different area or look into renting an apartment for a week instead. Overall, the whole hotel experience was just below adequate with respect to its ambiance, services and location.
Overall we enjoyed this hotel. Friendly staff, great location with easy access to metro, restaurants, shopping, local bakeries, cafes/lounges, etc. The rooms and elevator are tiny but cozy. The hotel was quiet with a variety of travelers staying within - who also were friendly. If you're in need of internet access, as I was, the pay as you go wifi signal is very weak to unusable. Thankfully there are two internet cafes round the corner - which are also slow but usable. We would absolutely recommend this hotel to those traveling to Paris.
