Hotel Paris used to be our top choice when coming through La Ceiba. But we've stopped giving it glowing reviews, as our last few stays have been anything but great. To its credit, and why we still do suggest it as an option: 1) the location is awesome is the center of town- super convenient to everything. You don't want to walk at night, but they always have a taxi waiting for you. 2) The pool area is great too. Very clean, nice chairs around it, and nice little bar with a sweet bartender. 3) For travelers (and expats and locals), its an “easy” spot to stay- as far as it will be a decent enough stay.
The reason we don't love it anymore: 1) Unfortunately, front desk service the last 3 times has had a huge air of arrogance or maybe its more indifference. Whatever it was, it was not a welcoming attitude and many of our local friends have noticed this as well. (Doorman, Bellman and cleaners are super nice and fantastic- its just the front desk staff that has some attitude issues). 2) For the rooms, its no secret that its really hit or miss. The new section is great- clean rooms, nice beds. The old section is run down, a bit stale. Some rooms are downright mildewy. This is not a cleaning issue with the housekeepers, but the rooms themselves. Unfortunately, you won't know what you are getting unless you ask for a specific room number. You can try and ask for new section, but I'd suggest you look at the room first before checking in.
So all that said, its not the worse place to stay in La Ceiba, but certainly not our top choice. Yeah, we'll end up staying there again, because there is not a huge amount of options in this price range, we like the location, and again, its an easy enough spot. But it really would be nice if just once the front desk staff acted a bit welcoming when you walked in the front door for check in.
