“Not what it was told to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2009

The website of the hotel promisses things you don't get. It says there is a private parking, a breakfast and no pets alowed. The first two things are absolute nonsense. There was no parking space whatsoever, and there was also no breakfast.
Then in the small reception there is a cat walking around. He fortunately doesn't come in any of the hotel rooms, but still, I think if you don't allow pets in your hotel you shouldn't have a cat walking around yourself.
Then one of the staff members was very unfriendly. This was not only our experience but from more of the guests we spoke to. He is unfriendly to everyone and not helpful at all.
The rest of the staff we spoke to were nicer, but this man makes the stay much less pleasant.
The rooms were clean and we even had a balcony (this is only on the top floor, the rest of the rooms has a french balcony you can't stand on). The only thing you could say is that they aren't very big, and tall people cant stand underneath the shower because it's not high enough. The last doesn't bother me though, because you don't spend a lot of time in the hotel. It's just a place to sleep and shower.
The location of the hotel is good. The metro is within a 5 minute walking distance, and there are shops and cafés within this area as well.
I recommend having breakfast in a place I don't remember the name of, it's on the corner of rue de montholon and rue de lafayette. It's really good and not expensive.

Seemed to cheap to be true .... and it was, relatively good location. Looks okay from the outside but inside you can't help feeling its a bit dingy and hostel like. There is a computer with internet access, but it wasn't working when we were there. The room was meant to be a quad, but it was a triple with an extra bed, this meant that three of the beds were pushed right up next to each other. The mattresses were rock solid, we'd have been just as well of f sleeping on the floor. To make things worse, the room was an extremely weird shape, and there was nowhere to put things (e.g shelves, cupboards), although overall cleanliness was good. There is no mini bar, it is simply a fridge. The bathroom was tired and dated, and yet even it didn't serve it's purpose well, there was no shelve above the sink, only the brackets, and the shower was in the bath, but you couldn't have a bath because there was no plug or tap, all you could do was have a shower, with a loose hose (not fixed to the wall), but it wouldn't stretch far enough up to use standing. The street was very noisy outside, lots of scooters (although you do get that everywhere) and there was loud building works going on. There was a very good cafe/restraunt at the end of the street which is worth mentioning. The staff initially seemed a bit frosty but were always there to help, they did help and in the end were very friendly indeed. If you are looking for a boutique hotel this is not one, or the one for you, but if you are looking for something on a budget, that is clean and simple, this should do you fine. But I still wouldn't go back though.

I must say it's not the best hotel but not the worst one either. Those people who say it's the worst place in the world are wrong. Yes, the rooms are tiny and not so modern, but they're quite clean and comfortable. You're not going to stay at the hotel all day long, right?
We stayed there in april and the weather wasn't that great. At night it was veeery cold in the room, but i asked for an extra blanket and the staff gave it immediately. The staff was quite polite and friendly. The area is GREAT! it's well-situated and in general quite good.
We spend there 5 nights and it was ok for the price.

Great location, metro closeby, multiple restaurants, bakeries, in the heart of Montmarte. Rooms small, doesnot seem to be 3 star hotel as reported, but nicely cleaned each day. Price reasonable, but not cheap compared to the size and luxury (lack of luxury)of the room. May be really hot in summar as no AC. Smell from all nearby bakeries inside the room, may not be able to keep the windows open. Staff extremely rude, they insist answering in French, although they do know and speak English. Last day, we were almost late for our flight as on call hotel manager refused to make more phone calls to find us a taxi claiming there was no available taxi in Paris at that time! He literally left the reception area not to deal with our taxi problem! Luckily, next door hotel manager I asked for help recommended us to walk to the nearest Taxi stop, where we were able to find one. I would recommend this hotel only for location if you don't care for anything else.

  • Liked — Great location, metro, taxi, bussto, restaurants, night life all closeby. You can go anywhere in Paris in 15 min.
  • Disliked — Staff rude, not helpful at all, internet not working as staff cannot find the right password!

Worst place in Paris!!!! I would never advise anyone to stay there even my worst enemy!!!! The rooms are a mess and the place is run by the owner who is not a customer friendly.

It must be the most terrible place in Paris.
We booked the hotel by phone. Was waiting for confirmation for a week!
When we arrived, it was night already, but even though we found out that bed sheets were dirty, unchanged, stinky and wet! Towels at bathroom at least a week old. Room dirty, no cleaning, really stinky and nosy.
We decided to stay for a night as had no idea where to go and tired after a flight. We had to sleep dressed and with no cover. Next morning at 7 a.m. we came down to the reception to get money back (as paid for a week) and check-out. No breakfast was proposed, even we paid for. Nothing of the sort! The owner refused to return money, he was rude, said no apologies, didn't even try to fix problems. We was shocked and couldn't contadict and ask for any service as he "forgot" English. We had to invite police!!! But as we were foreigners, police guys gave an advise us not to get into official conflict. They were kind and helped with check out. We had to move to another hotel, having lost half of the day, money and nerves.
So, if you are going to Paris, stay away from that hotel.

The first night the hotel was booked out, so they put us in a 2 star hotel, Jeff hotel. For the understanding they gave us free breakfast, which was nice. The owner (I guess) is really nice, funny and friendly but now to the hotel, it is dirty and old (not only the building also the blankets and the furniture).
