I had made a reservation (through booking.com) for four nights starting May 29th in this hotel. The pricelist was EUR 280 a night for a so called "Chambre Double Supérieure" [double superior bedroom].
I had specifically asked for a quiet room. The official Web site of the hotel was describing the rooms as "soundproof". When I showed up, I was provided with a room located at the second floor right above Rue de Vaugirard (quite a noisy street). The windows were obsolete with no double glaze and even less soundproofing. The excuse: 1) they did not pay attention to my specific request for a quiet room; 2) The building dates back to the XVIIth century and they are forbidden to install double-glazed windows.
They could not provide me with an alternative choice. I quit and was lucky enough to find another hotel in the neighborhood. They insisted on charging me the first night and they did. BTW booking.com was of no real help and, eventually, sent me a copy of their disclaimer.
