“Is the bell tolling for campanile - seriously understaffed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This hotel does not live up to the usual Campanile value and service. Sunday morning - no hot water to wash with; restaurant littered with used breakfast trays and no one to clear them. Sunday evening - no hot water to shower with after long day sight-seeing (after enquiring we were told to wait 20 mins for it to heat up), told that there was no bread to accompany meal, had to wait 1.5 hrs to get meal, 1hr to get a drink, tables not cleared after guests had left restaurant.
On questioning the wait we were told to 'go down the road'!
Two saving graces - the rooms were spotlessly clean, and the young inexperienced waitress did her best in bad circumstances.
We have been using Campaniles for 25 years but would think twice before usIng them again. We would certainly never use this one again.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel, considering the nightly rate (45 euro's). 10 minute walk to train / metro station which takes you straight into the heart of Paris in under 15 minutes, 36 minute drive from Disneyland. Nice neighborhood that looks and feels safe even later at night. Heard no street noise or anything in the room.

Free parking is a big plus to this hotel, and it's right above a big supermarket (Cora). Room is small, but clean, and the bathroom facilities were perfect. Breakfast would have been 9,50 per person per day extra, so we skipped that and chose to get bread somewhere.

Would definitely recommend for a short stay in the Paris area, especially if you want to do the Paris / Disneyland combination like we did.

reported this to the staff there on the second day. and they just gave me a free breakfast, saying the boiler for hot water is down for the whole building. the staff insist that if i shower IN THE MORNING, it should be okie. I think it's bad luck that things do not work during my stay. but it is the hotel's responsibility to either sort this out or compensate the customers.

Stayed with a group of students-french club trip. Breakfast was good-meat, cheese, yogurt, cereal, fruit, coffee from a machine. Rooms are small, like everywhere else in Europe and clean. Door locked to hotel thru the night. Upon our return around midnight, could not get anyone to let us in. Can walk to metro, neighborhood a little seedy at night.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and arrived quite late at night. The parking is behind the hotel on the roof of the building which was quite good as it was secured and not in sight for risks of breaking in etc. Even at around midnight, we just had to ring the bell and a receptionist let us in. Check in was OK, he even helped us change one of the 2 rooms we booked. The room was OK, nice beds and adequate. The hotel itself is located on the outskirts of Paris in Arcueil, and just outside the hotel, there are bus stops on either side of teh road to link you to the nearest metro only 10 minutes away. Perhaps breakfast is quite expensive for what you get, so do like what we did, just walk 5 minutes on the main road and get some nice hot croissants, and eat in your room which has got tea/coffee facilities. All in all, it is a good hotel with just what you need to visit Paris, a quiet place quite close but not in Paris, so that you do not pay a fortune and you can actually sleep at night!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Very clean room with bed linen changed for second night. Room had a bath and reasonable space for washbags,etc. All the staff were helpful and pleasant.
Good breakfast with fresh oranges to juice. Had 2 dinners :- recommend the double buffet. RER station about 15 minutes walk, then 20 minute ride to centre of Paris.
Ample off street parking which we believe is free.
