My husband and I love Paris and come to visit every two years. This year, we were bringing our two daughters for the first time and were so excited! For a change, we decided to stay in the Marais instead
of the 6th arr. and booked our stay at the Hotel Jeanne D Arc.
Our disappointment started early with the surly staff who pretty much ignores you.
Our room was dour with stained carpet, an old beaten up desk and very little storage space for four people.
The flat screen TV didn't work and it was on the old desk anyway, completely out of view for anyone sitting on the bed (the only place to sit).
But the worst was the bathroom. Black mold on the ceiling above the shower/tub.
A tiny, old shower curtain that didn't fit and let water splash all over the bathroom.
The bar holding up the shower curtain was rusted and held in place by brochures jammed in on each side!
The toilet paper holder was missing, but two ugly holes were left in the wall. The bath towels were threadbare and fraying. The shower head was broken, making it practically impossible to take a shower. It eventually broke off and had to be fixed. It was so depressing. I felt awful that this was my girls first impression of Paris.
We never ate breakfast there. We felt it was safer to venture out and go to local places instead. Would not recommend."
