“room smelt digusting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2007

Room had a very aweful disgusting smell. Beds were comfortable and clean , bathroom was clean ,short walk to metro but this did not compensate for the stench in the room. Carpet was filthy.Would not recomend this hotel. Breakfast was 3 Euro for coffee and a half a bagette seved on a seviette. Was not impressed at all.

  • Liked — Comfortable bed
  • Disliked — The horride smell
  • Stayed July 2007, traveled as a couple

i recently booked rooms on Late rooms.com,i was shocked at the hotel i was at,it is was not clean i had to buy cleaning products to clean the shower,the room had peeling and stained wallpaper,an old tablecloth on the table a very worn and dirty looking bedspread,their was no view (just into the back of other apartments),the tv is broken along with the elevator and i was on the 4th floor, when i got up the next morning i adjusted the pillow and underneath the sheet was a load of black hair I nearly vomited the flaming bed wasnt clean,(i,m a redhead)
The hotel, i had booked was HOTEL GARDEN (PARIS).
They seeminly chronicily overbooked and put me in a hotel next store Hotel Rhetia ,i wanted to move to another hotel but their is no manager until Monday morning, i tried to cancel with the number provided -madame jebo(i think thats how you spell it), at 19.10 sat night she could not understand english ,and the number provided no answer, and to really insult me i was charged 65euros and the place i am staying is is 1star at 31 euros a night (which was the tarrif written on the wall),i i booked 3star,I was going to another hotel the next day and i didnt trust that it would be okay,When i checked out, the bill was reduced to 46euros and finally to 40 (i just wanted to get the hell out of there)i feel at this day and age there is no excuse for dirty hotel rooms and the person that gave them one star i would love to know what era was that in and why,I hold the Hotel Garden responsible for a)changing my hotel with no warning,and B)not finding a proper alternative unless of course their hotel is in the same catogory and they see it matchs their hotel Class,It was my first trip to Paris and thankfully the next hotel i stayed in the next day, which i had also previously booked with late rooms.com also was great and i enjoyed it and it was what i had expected from the website,
I have never spent a night in a worse Hotel and i have travelled quite a bit,their are hotels inAtlantic city New York (which they rent by the hour )that are the Ritz compared to this hotel,PS-this is the first time i have used this site as i feel everyone deserves to make a living but this is not acceptable, it is taking advantage of Tourists and their is no excuse

  • Liked — The Exit
  • Disliked — It was a terrible experience
