The Quality Hotel, Paris, was a value for money, service-friendly, and clean hotel. While it had many excellent qualities, it also had a couple of minor faults worth mentioning.
We booked this hotel as we quite like the Montparnasse (Mountrouge) areas of Paris. It is located within a one minute walking distance from the Porte D’Orleans stop (on line 4) on the Paris metro. (It is worth noting that although Porte D’Orleans looks quite a distance from a ‘centre’ stop, such as Chatelet, the Parisian Metro stops a located within a short distance to each other). The location, therefore, is ideal for all visitors.
The hotel reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They assisted us excellently and politely. The breakfast was good too (although the scrambled eggs were a little runny – this may be the way they are made in France). Nevertheless, there was an excellent selection of cereals, breads, pastries and juices there, and the breakfast staff were friendly too.
The rooms are very satisfactory for the price. Our room was clean, moderately sized and accessed with ease by an elevator. The provision of complementary teas and coffees were welcomed too. However, there was no socket by the bedside (for phone charging) which would have been useful.
Wi-fi was provided to the two of us via a log-in receipt. It was fast enough for regular web browsing, emails, and social media. We found that our connection was not quick enough to handle VOIP (Skype) calls from our smart phones, but we are aware that they have a whole hotel to cater for, we did not find this an issue.
However, we have two minor faults with the hotel. First, on our second day we put up a ‘do not disturb’ sign on our door (we simply didn’t want the room serviced). This was disregarded; our room was entered and serviced anyway. I am aware that this may have been a simple misunderstanding by a member of staff; we were not too bothered as our valuables in our room were not touched. Second, our rooms was not noise-proof. We could hear our neighbours relatively easily through the walls.
Summary: Pro: This is a clean hotel, ideal for couples. Service, food, and staff were all satisfactory. Con: Misunderstanding with room service and thin walls.
