We discovered mold in the bathroom and sleepingroom, so the air quality was very bad. We had a room towards the street. Sleeping was not possible because of the noise coming up from the street through the old broken windows. The carpet and bedspread were broken and very dirty. The furniture in the bathroom was totally damaged and had Water... More

We needed a place to stay for the night at the 18th arrondisement where we can securely park our car and Booking.com offered a good last minute deal for Hotel Modern. The room was very modest in size but not suffocatingly small. It was very basic but very clean. We didn't need much more than that as we arrived late... More

A pretty grim, cheerless place - claustrophobic, in a bad state of repair, with poor sound insulation between rooms, no wi-fi on my storey and serving the most unappetising breakfast I've ever eaten in Paris. On the credit side it was clean and the bed I had was comfortable. All the same, if you are coming here on holiday you... More

I did like our room -- looked out over the street with a little bar below. The staff was helpful and I was able to get the room I requested at a lower level because there is no elevator/lift and we had heavy bags! It got noisy a little at night but it was kind of fun --- we were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a spontaneous trip to Paris. We booked accommodation the morning of our first night stay. We were worried there may be a mix up etc as it was such short notice. But everything was organised and reception was open all evening which was reassuring. Location of hotel was amazing!! Easy access to area with... More

We booked a room there in May, and on arrival discovered that the hotel was overbooked!!! We were offered a room at their "sister" hotel, which quite honestly was a dump!!! The room there hadn't been used in at least 6 months!!! I doubt if even French husbands would use it for illicit affairs!!!!! There was a smell of damp... More

I know this hotel was cheap and it was what i expected. Not super clean but certainly adequate for an older hotel. Comfortable bed (single) and spacious room. Breakfast was downstairs with coffee and croissants was also adequate. Location was near Moulin Rouge - being solo didn't want to travel city of a night by myself too far from home.... More

terrible experience with children. I had to take another double room to accomodate children. The horrible lady at reception was so rude and arrogant and did not care that we have children with us. Not worth the money, they are theives. Breakfast was too bad, hard bread with juice or coffee only in 5 euro.
