“Nice hotel, but heavy smoke smell ruined our stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2015

The hotel has a great price value rate, nice rooms with spacious bathroom for a two stars hotel in France. Service was very nice.

The single thing that completely ruined our stay was the heavy smoke smell in the room, that even contaminated our clothes simply by staying there for one single night.

The room was a no smoking room and at checkin we did not realize about the smell problem as the window was open when we entered the room. We closed it and went away for a walk but when coming back to the room later that day, an horrendous smoke small was present in all the room. Disgusting for the both of us (and consider that we are both casual smokers, thus less prone to be bothered by smoke smell).

We stayed there for 5 nights in October and had a very pleasant stay. The owners are caring and friendly, the rooms are clean and you find everything you can expect from a family hotel, including a nice breakfast.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights in mid-september.
This is a nice little hotel, situated in an excellent location - just a few minutes walk to the sea and a short walk away from the city centre.
All hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
Even though we speak very little French or Italian, they tried their best to communicate with us and make us feel welcome.
The room as well as the bathroom was very clean and spacious.
The breakfast consisted of bread, croissants, jam, coffee and orange juice, which was fine for us.
All in all it was a pleasant stay!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We stayed here last year and the owner claimed that he only speaks French and he was a grump. We stayed for four nights and asked to leave one night early with two days notice. When the time came to leave, we were charged for the last night but he wanted us out of the room by check-out time so he could book it twice. When we came back this year with a group and an Italian guide, it turns out that he speaks perfect Italian. He was much nicer because the Italian woman, knowing his nature, asked him to behave. If you are traveling as a couple or alone, watch out because he is sadistic at best.

I stayed there only one night but from my point of view it's a nice place to stay if you have a short vacation.
Price is ok (for a double room we spent 70 euro) and, very importsnt thing, in 15 minutes by car you are in Montecarlo, so the position is ok.
room is comfortable with a clear and nice bathroom.
There's wifi but is not ok,i had a lot of problems to have a good connection.

If u are looking for a place to sleep near montecarlo, le parisien is ok.

We had a fabulous stay at the Hotel Parisien in Menton. A very cosy hotel owned by two very kind people who do everything to make you feel at home. If you like a calm and familly feel to your stay then this hotel is really a good place to be. Good quality at a fair price, very clean rooms with shower, television, double or twin beds and a small balcony at street side. It's very close to the beach and well located to find your way swiftly to the shopping and dining area of Menton. It's been renovated to the latest standards of sound proof walls. A must if you do not like the big resorts :)

As we arrived, the quarrel started at once with the sour man in the reseption. We had a lot of trouble with the payment, as the ammount we should pay was drawn twice. We are experienced travellers, and there is no doubt that le Parisien will be remembered as a rare, negative experience.

Ces clients avaient réservé pour 1 nuit et ont prolongé leur séjour de 2 nuits car ils s'y trouvaient très bien. Mais au moment de payer, ce fut une autre histoire.
Ils ont voulu nous faire croire qu'on les avaient débité 2 fois ce qui n'était pas le cas.
Je leur ai demandé de me le prouver pour les rembourser si nécessaire mais ils ne sont jamais revenus.
Par contre, ils déversent des commentaires haineux et mensongers sur différents sites.
Malheureusement dans ce métier, on a de temps en temps à faire avec des gens très bizarres et malhonnêtes
