This hotel is undergoing long overdue rennovation, it's quite near our Paris headquarters and on previous stays I've had colleagues walk in and straight out again.
Location: sandwiched between one of the poorer, rundown areas of Paris and a dual carriageway. Leave the hotel heading away from the dual carriageway, turn left and walk a couple of blocks and you will find drugs being dealt fairly openly on the street. I'd recommend not walking anywhere particularly by night.
Staff: mix of nice and helpful and Parisean couldn't give a **** take pot luck
Hotel public spaces: mix of scaffolding, bare concrete, and dust sheets which link together the hall, dining area and reception. Lift wasn't working which the staff seemed to think was a great joke
Rooms: in the process of being rennovated ... which means re-painted. Think white pebble-dashed concrete box with a bed in it and you'll be on the mark. Utterly without character or charm. My window wouldn't shut which meant I had the drone of traffic from the dual carriageway along the river all night. When I asked to switch I received a dissimissive "we are full;" and in response to my request for an iron and ironing board I was told there was one at reception if I wanted to come and get it. As it turned out this was the only iron the hotel possessed and water poured out of it as fast as I poured it in, after that I didn't dare use it as the whole contraption was drenched.
Bed: Cotton covers on sweaty nylon quilts - I barely slept despite getting up at 4am the previous morning
Breakfast and dinner: surprisingly ok given the rest of the building, however I got a glipse of the kitchens through the serving hatch and the walls and light switches beyond were grubby and not what you'd expect in an area that is preparing food
Shower: new fittings, wide shower head, hot water ... flow could have been better but that's a quibble
