“"Not Bad, Just Basic"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The hotel is extremely basic but in fairness that was what I expected when I booked. It's fine if you only want a bed at night and somewhere to leave your bags while you explore Paris. The location is good, right in the city centre, next to chatelet metro station. I stayed in a single bedroom with a sink and bidet. The toilets are located on a winding staircase (awkward with bags). They were kept clean but they don't have a sink. I thought the staff were friendly but I can speak a bit of french and I found if you make an effort french people are much more helpful.

my 2nd stay at de la vallee, for a week, in the same room as before. still a quaint parisian one-star hotel offering very good value for money in expensive paris. showers were better than before (or perhaps my memory is playing tricks on me) and the nearby montergueil district had gotten even cosier.

There were no bathroom in the room. Shower was on the other floor. Just be aware about it because it's kind of hind info when you are booking. Staff was not so friendly and that stairs was very dangerous.

Even though we received an email confirmation, the hotel somehow lost our reservation. We ended up having to change to a different room every night - huge hassle. In addition, the internet had very poor range, the breakfast was over-priced for what it was, and the people at the front desk had a bit of an attitude.

Honestly, i am one of these people who dont read reviews and try to be as optimistic about places as possible. Me and my partner had a bad experience of paris as it is and coming back to this hotel really didnt help much. Rooms and facilities are very basic and, in all fairness, you can live without aircon or wifi etc etc. Its mainly the friendliness and approachability of the staff thats the issue. Ask for your bags to be looked after and theyll grumble, ask to stay another night and theyll grumble. .. They even said to us, "this is a 1* hotel so dont expect much" (along those lines) at checking in when we asked why on booking websites they were advertised as 3*. Spend 10euros extra and stay in an ibis!! Thats what we endes up doing after a night

I stay two hotels in Paris. This one is in a good location. There is no shower and toilet in room ,, and no elvator ut almost same price with another one. You have to go out to use washroom. There is a bird nest out of our window. They woke up early and make noise. We can't sleep well. But the location is really good.
