Stayed here for five days with my boyfriend, and i must say that i am not impressed! for the price we payed,700 euros, we could have found a better hotel that included breakfast(this one dont) When we arrived the room wasn't ready yet, but we got to leave our luggage wich was fine by us! The first receptionist we met was nice and polite, but it seemed like the hotel has many receptionists, because we did not see the same person twice during our five days in the hotel. We did not try the 11 euro breakfast, because the receptionist told us that the breakfast was "not good, but not bad". So we decided not to try it. it seemed like no one else did either, cause the only person we saw eating breakfast was the staff..
We got our room, wich had an Ok size, but it was really dirty(see pictures). There were dust in every corner, stains on the floor, hair on the sink and in the bathtub(i decided clean the bathtub myself before taking a shower), and on the wall there was a big, dead mosquito that probably was killed there during the summer...i lifted the sheets, and it looked like the pillows either were used or just tucked into the pillowcase in a hurry. it seemed that they did not use time or energy to make the room look nice..but i dont know, maybe they were in a hurry..
we asked them to clean our room, but the only thing they did was wax the floor. We could still see the staines on the floor, but it looked much cleaner, and felt much cleaner! The bathroom was still the same.
The hotel is cozy - in the common area, but the rest of it is old and a bit "worn". i think they have other types of rooms as well that are newer and bigger than the regular double room we had(305). If you have a large suitcase you might find it difficult to get to your room, because of the narrow hallways, and the tiny tiny lift. If both me and my boyfriend were wearing our parkas jackets, the lift barely could fit us both (but I must say that we are both tall norwegian wikings). The stairways was also very narrow, and if a fire should start, there will be a total chaos of people.
The room was quiet, and the bed was good, even though it had plastic under the sheets. At least i slept like a baby!
As i work in an hotel, i often notice the little things. Every time we went out, NO ONE in the reception even looked up to notice us. most of the time they just sat there with their eyes on the computer, or in the breakfast area eting, while the phone kept ringing in the reception. But if you stare at them long enough they might just say hi! ;)
The man welcoming us the day we arrived was nice, actually he was really funny! :)
But we did not stay in the hotel much, since paris is a great city with way too many things to experience. I can recommend this hotel for a couple of days as the location is GREAT! right next to the louvre :) (and one tips - everything is in french all over in paris, not a single english word to see)
Plus: Minibar, safe, free winebottle, location(VERY GOOD!!)
minus: Cleanliness, indifferent staff, price (compared to what you get), tv- only cnn is english, every other channel is french or dubbed.
