My girlfriend and I stayed here because of the price and great reviews. On our first night (tonight, August 26) we asked for an extra pillow, the clerk told me to come down and get it. Never been told that before but went down anyway. I said to the clerk "Bonjour, extra pillow", he then stood up, put his finger in my face and barked at me saying how rude I was "when you're in someone's house, that is not how you ask". I did asked in a respectful way and this is a hotel, not his house!Told him I no longer wanted the pillow using a few choice words and he ran out of his desk and pushed me out of the way of the elevator. He told me to get the F out of his hotel before he called the police.... I went back to my room and the police came knocking 30 minutes later. My girlfriend explained to the police in French what had happed and thankfully the police took our side, the clerk flipped out even more, several customers opened their doors to see what was happening (PLEASE IF YOU STAYED HERE AUGUST 26 PLEASE RESPOND). This man was completely out of control, swearing and threatening us in English so that the police wouldn't understand, he tried barging through my girlfirend to get in our room. After police allowed us to stay, we left 20 minutes later anyway for safety concerns after all the threats. When we tried to leave, he locked the front door, so we called the police to let us out! The police had to show up TWICE!! I'm shocked at how lenient the French police are when it comes to threats and physical contact to not only tourists, but women! In the U.S. the police would have viewed the security tapes and locked him up. This is all on the hotel security camera's, we are definitely going back tomorrow to speak with the owner and get our money back and hopefully have disciplinary action taken on this lunatic.
