“Average Economy Hotel on outskirts of Paris”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This hotel is a long metro ride from Paris however I also stayed with a tour group and I assume they did so to keep the costs down. Hotel was clean, bathrooms were the largest we had in our 7 days in France and they had hair dryers unlike the hotels we stayed at in Northern Frances (Normandy & Saint Malo area). Breakfast Buffet was the best of the three hotels we were at. The front desk people were not very friendly but not rude either. The hotel has no a/c so it was hot and opening the windows didn't work due to the noise of the nearby Metro. There is a McDonald's attached but it is not open for breakfast. We left early in the morning and got back late at night. It did have free wifi in the rooms and you did have to get a code but still better than no wifi, wifi in lobby only or wifi you have to pay for, which is how some of the hotels were. Beds were comfortable but there was a musty smell in the room that did go away once the windows were open. If you are looking for affordable and don't mind the long Metro trip, this might work for you.

I stayed at this hotel during a group trip. I was one of the adult chaperones supervising a school group of teenagers visiting Paris. This hotel is a 45 minute metro ride from center city in Paris, and it's a poor choice if you want a location convenient to the city. In addition, the walk to the metro stop takes about 10 minutes.

Not only is the location bad, but the hotel management is not at all concerned with customer satisfaction. The rooms are small and often very warm. There is no air conditioning in the rooms. Wifi is free, but it requires that you get a new access code every second day. The rooms have no dressers, no hand towels, no kleenex, and there is no ice machine in the halls. The shower is tiny, and it's impossible to move once in the shower. One day there was no warm water.

The only positives about this hotel--the twin bed had a very comfortable mattress; the room was very clean, and the people who work in the lobby breakfast room are friendly. (Unlike the cranky people who work at the hotel reception desk.)

It was difficult to get a good night's sleep because with the windows opened (necessary to get some breathable air into the hot, stuffy rooms) constantly through the night you hear the noise from the nearby trains and highway.

Avoid this hotel.

Right place to explore Paris for less - we spent 400 euro for 6 days. The underground station is 5 min away from the hotel entrance and you'll get to the city senter in another 40 min. And no need to bring from there your shopping bags - you will find a large mall nearby. On the other hand the hotel seems to be a base for bus travellers so if your room is on the hotel entrance side you may wake up in the night - the coaches are parked very close to the building and their diesel engine starts loudly. Also all these 'coach-ists' tend to leave very early and make a noisy crowd near the vehicle in the morning. Other side of the building is facing a motorway so myself assume there would also be not that tranquil. The windows are not sound-proof when locked but we had even to open them wide - the weather was hot and no air-conditioning in the room. That was also the reason for small creatures to come and bother us - I'm talking about mosquitoes. You'll hardly sleep because of them unless you buy an electric anti-mosquito plug-in like we did.
The room in general was clean and comfortable, so I cant agree with the other reviewer who was disappointed with it. We did not take breakfast and used a Paul bakery in the shopping mall instead, so I cant say anything about the food in this hotel but having the kettle in the room was very nice. Hope next time they will put there a fridge as well!

Room Tip: lower floors are less hot because of the sun

when we first got there it seemed nice, but it did not take long to find things wrong. First the blankets it the rooms were dirty, stained, and mine had a hole burned in it it. one of my friends rooms was in the basement, they did not mind until they found ants all over there room. they went to the front desk and they just handed the a can of bug spray and they would not give them a new room. the last thing we found was McDonald fires all over the room, but non of us ate McDonald at all. over all staff was rude and unhelpful and the rooms were the worst i have ever seen.

Smelly rooms, dirty carpet, unfrienly staff, lift out of order, ridiculoysly small shower. The lift did not work and the night receptinist told me "what do you expect? This is a machine, it breaks down every once in a while. Walk up the stairs!'
When we came back around midnight there was a yong mian seated on his bedroom window, peeing out of the window, naked. Cheap hotel, cheap people!

Took about 45 minutes to get to the city center. Quick walk to the mall and metro station. The staff were friendly and it was nice to have a McDonalds attached. The area was safe and rooms were clean and simple. Nothing extra, but a good value for a hotel in Paris.

When we arrived at the hotel we were met with a view of people sitting on their window ledges smoking - not a great start. The hotel smells of smoke and needs a good clean and up-dating. The rooms were very hot without air-conditioning, so you had to leave a window open but because you have a busy road on one side and a railway track/road on the other it is very noisy. Also, when someone lights up a cigarette at their window, the smoke ends up coming in through your window. Pretty disgusting place, and one to avoid.
