DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!! It should be reported to the health authorities. The carpet was filthy, bed sheets were dirty and the bed had hair in it. The bathroom smelt of urine and the shower had no shower head. The walls of the room were covered in dirt and food. My partner and I walked into the hotel... More

My partner and I stayed here for 7 days in April as he ran the Paris marathon. We were on the top floor (room 501) front facing, with a great balcony. The room was comfortable, but small. Bathroom had everything we needed but again, quite small. We made sure we bought some ear plugs after the first night, and slept... More

I was not expecting anything impressive by any means but the moment I saw the decrepit sign on the outside of the building I realised what an incredible mistake I had made. The photos on their website looked charming, however our room was so small I could barely move in it. One of the worst features was the one window... More

I stayed here for three nights in august 2013 and can honestly say it was perfect for what I needed. As a guy in his 20's travelling with friends, this hotel offered a clean, secure and private place to stay with an unbeatable location. Luxury aside, the value for money of this hotel is unbeatable in Paris. right beside the... More

I'm a teacher and i've just been on a 2 night stay with my students on a short trip. The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and funny. The rooms were average with adequate storage and basic facilities. The cleanliness was not exactly brilliant, as the shower curtains were mouldy at the bottom where they were touching the shower floor. The... More

This was definitely the worst place I stayed in all my years of travel. The place was dirty. Our bedsheets were dirty with hair in them. No elevator. All night there was noise outside from unruly citizens. I highly recommend any traveler to avoid this place. It wasn't worth 10 euros.

When we arrived our room was not ready, but they let us store our bags. We returned after work and they showed us to what they said was their best room. By some measures it surely is, it is spacious, with a desk and a good sized bathroom with a bathtub. But something nagged at me, the room faces the... More
