Recent guest reviews
Stayed at Premier classe Paris for 1 night. The man at the recieption was very helpful and friendly. It is about 9 miles from the Eiffel tower a 30 minute tram and metro ride. Our door handle fell off inside so we had to fix it to get out of the room, which made us laugh. The hotel is very poorly kept everything looks tired. People smoking in their rooms leaves a stale smell of smoke in the corridors and surrounding areas. The stairway access to the car park smelt of urine. The hotel is situated between two main motorway interchanges and we heard police car sirens on and off through the night. Its in the middle of what looked like a social housing estate surrounded by blocks of flats. My son found the area very intimidating when we came back at night. However the beds were comfy and sheets were clean. All in all an experience we will not forget.
Me and my family stayed in this hotel for 1 night as a quick get away for my mums birthday! I wanted something that was relatively so I decided to go for a hotel that wasn’t near to city centre but still easy to get a metro or something like that, however We arrived at the hotel and as soon as we saw the hotel we didn’t have good first impressions. We had to park on the main road for the time being as we were not told where to park and when we found to being shown where to park in the underground car park, we didn’t feel safe leaving our car there overnight due to the amount of broken down abanded vehicles there behind a ‘secure’ gate. The only way from car park to the hotel was to take the tiny little spiral staircase that smelt like human waste and loads of smashed bottles and rubbish everywhere. Walking into the hotel reception where to my exspected to be welcomed by a friendly employee . But no, my boyfriend went up to the counter and waited for the man infront to finish arguing with the hotel manager to then also be greeted with ‘shhh’ as he was about to ask him a question. Rooms We’re extremely filthy, the bathroom light didn’t work. The main door walking into the corridor wouldn’t shut on the latch. This also happened in my other family members rooms there door also didn’t shut, which then made you worry about leaving stuff in there during the day as the hotel manager was playing solitaire on his computer all day and all night. Breakfast Before coming the hotel we thought it would be nice to pay for breakfast in the hotel as it was only €10 each however when we was the hall we completely changed our mind. In the morning we had a look at what variety of food they had and it wasn’t too pleasant and I would of not paid €10 for it. Later on in the day we decided we wanted to head into Paris centre, so we decided to asked the hotel manager about bus or taxi we then decided to tell us he didn’t know and didn’t understand what a bus was and was unable to provide any information about bus or taxis and he didn’t have any numbers . After about 20 minutes he then decided to ring a taxi (even though he had no numbers) which he then said it would only cost €20 when in fact is cost €50 each way. I would highly recommend not using this hotel you better of using the €100 a day for taxi to put it towards a hotel in the city centre.
I really don't like leaving negative reviews, but this really was the worst stay we have had. We stayed here for 1 night with our daughter at the end of our holiday. We chose it as it was reasonably priced and only 7.5 miles from the eifel tower. First of all, the sign by the front door says that we are happy to check you in at any time. We arrived at 11.30am and my husband asked if we could check in so that we could park the car before going out.. the guy on reception looked at him like a piece of muck on the bottom of his shoe and said, if you come back at 12.00 i will check you in then as that is the proper check in time.. so slightly put off by this, we drove into drancy as they wouldn't let us park and found somewhere to leave the car and a coffee shop to visit. we returned to the hotel an hour later and checked into the room, the same guy was much nicer. My husband took my daughter out to a local swimming pool, which we'd come across when looking for somewhere to park. Whilst they were out the fire alarm went off, but no one was following fire procedure.. so after a few minutes i called reception to see if it was a test as no one was leaving the rooms, but the gentleman on the phone didn't understand me and couldn't tell me if there was a fire. The alarm then stopped and the lights came back on. When my husband returned from swimming we popped out to the lidl supermarket next door with our daughter to get some drinks and as we left the hotel there was a guy urinating against the side of a van parked on the road ( not something you want an 8 year old to see).. Also as we left our room, it was clear that someone had been smoking in the corridor, which is probably what set the alarm off, despite it being a no smoking hotel. The smell was aweful and clearly recent. The room itself was clean, but quite tired looking.. the edging strip was missing from the desk and in the bathroom there was grafitti on the toilet tissue holder and a childs sticker on the door handle that had been scrated at, but not removed.. then come the night time.. we were woken up several times between 1am - 4am but people who had parked their cars on the path outside the hotel. they were reving engines, playing music extremely loud and a female with them was "singing" along to the loud music, although it sounded more like a cat being strangled.. I get that it was a budget hotel, but i was really disapointed and had a terrible nights sleep.. the area around the hotel ( streets etc) were very dirty.. cars with dents and scrapes, litter everywhere. buildings looking like they were going to fall down.. homeless people in the park area of the central reservation drinking.. it wasn't a vey nice place to be. It is not somewhere i would visit again and i certainly wouldn't advise staying with children.
In the room stinks and to the coridor!! Very poor,in the room stinks!!!i ask for something to smell nice in the room and don't do nothing!i have to buy myself and I Was lucky because is a lidl near hotel,I was bit by something I don't know if they are bed bugs or spider!!!!!the thing is,the money which I pay is ok but next time I prefer to pay 20euro more and have good comfort !!I don't recommend this hotel if you want to have a nice holiday,it's ok if you stay one night!!!
My husband had to work in Paris for a few days, so we thought it'd be nice to upgrade our room for the whole family (3 adults, 2 babies). Originally, we were promised a central location, in a not so budget hotel. Thanks to a snafu by the organisers, we were forced to stay here. The lackluster reviews filled me with unholy dread. I braced myself for the worst. It's actually not too bad. I have stayed in worse conditions. We booked a triple room, it was quite spacious and clean. The hot shower was very good. TV was French only, wifi was reliable and pretty fast. The staff are not the friendliest bunch, but they are polite and patient. We spoke very little French, they speak very little English, but we managed. The breakfast is very basic but for the price, fair enough. The bread and pastries were actually very good, so was the yogurt. A selection of jams and Nutella. We didn't stay long. I confess, I panicked and booked another place to stay before arrival as it didn't seem children friendly. If it was just us adults, I honestly wouldn't mind staying here. But when you have small kids, it's not as easy. The location was not convenient enough. It takes a looooong tiiiime to get the kids ready to go out and then when you do, you can't expect them to stay out all day long. I would rather spend more for a central location than have to lose time herding the kids. Not recommended for sightseeing families with young kids.
We stayed in this hotel for two nights on the 9th and 10th March 2016. The manager was very polite and helpful and the room was immediately available. The lift (elevator) was efficient and clean. The room was very clean with white bed linen and plenty of hanging space for clothes, with chair and table with light and TV in good working order. The bathroom was also very clean with a nice fresh smell. Towels and bed linen were changed after the first night. The dining room was extremely clean and tidy with plenty of tables and chairs. Breakfast was copious and good with croissants, bread, butter, jam, yoghurts, orange juice, fresh fruit, hot water and hot milk and plenty of good coffee. The hotel was quiet and we slept very well. The fact that our car was safely parked in a secure undergound (free) car park was very reassuring. We paid 104 euros for two nights which we found extremely good value for a hotel in Paris very close to the tram stop giving easy access to the Metro and RER. We found a very good Sri Lankan restaurant just around the corner. The three members of staff on duty during our stay were very polite, helpful and welcoming.
I have read a few reviews of this hotel and knew before I walked through the door what to expect. There is a massive trade show in town and a huge international climate conference going on. This hotel is on EUR 84 a night. There is a reason for that. The staff are not especially rude, positively polite by Parisian standards but the ones I have met are spectacularly incompetent. The guy who checked us in last night was so slow it's hard to believe. It took him 45 minutes to check 4 of us in but even then he insisted on giving us 5 keys. The system told him that we had 5 rooms booked and the fact there were only 4 of us seemed not to matter. He stared at his computer screen as if it was the first time he had seen it. Every time the screen changed he showed renewed astonishment. If we hadn't just got in from the airport it would have been entertaining. I wonder if we were being filmed for a Candid Camera style TV show. There is a bit of a tobacco smoke odour to the place but it's not so bad. The rooms are Spartan but clean. It's a step up from a hostel but not a very big step. Breakfast was jam (or jelly if you are from across the pond) bread and yogurt. The coffee was surprisingly good. If you want a place to rest your head and nothing else then this is ok. Be patient with the staff. They can't afford to hire great staff for the money you pay for the room. Just think how you would feel if you were being paid minimum wage. Alternatively you might consider a hostel. The standards are only a little lower but it will be cheaper and more friendly. Oh yes, almost forgot. They say that there is wifi but for my visit it wasn't working. Also none of the staff speak anything other than French
Booked this hotel because of reasonable prices for a hotel only needed for one night whilst exploring Paris. Obviously pre-booked the rooms and arrived at the hotel early morning after a 5 hour drive from London, and then we were told that there were no rooms available and they would be available after 12pm. Staff were so rude and awful communication as nothing about arrival times was written on the website. Also despite non-smoking signs, the hotel reeked of smoke. Awful awful choice of hotel and definitely put a dampener on our Paris weekend, definitely do not recommend especially for families.
A budget hotel not too far from a metro station (Bobigny Pablo Picasso, 15 minutes' pleasant walk through a ribbon parkland) and 15 minutes drive from Charles de Gaulle airport. It has the essentials including free secure parking and wifi and 24 hours reception. The room was a good size - plenty of space for luggage. Four annoyances: 1) the bathroom basin did not have a plug for washing, 2) the push-button for the toilet flush required some strength to operate, 3) although we pre-booked as 3 in the room, we had to ask at reception for a third towel, and 4) the breakfast was very basic without croissants or gluten-free options (I'm gf and had to have just juice, yoghurt and a hot drink, the others additionally had bread and conserves).
Average 3-star hotel. It is a bit further from the city centre, but the neighbourhood is all right. There is a metro line to the city centre abut 15 min walk away from the hotel. Breakfast is poor (coffee, scones, butter), but the rooms are clean and ok.
