Room: single with en-suite. Staff: friendly and helpful prior to arrival, completely uninterested in problems encountered after check-in.

Bedroom walls so thin people next door clearly audible; nowhere to hang clothes; no bedside lights; no water / tea/coffee / kettle in room.

This wasn't the worst place I've stayed but I would not stay here again on a visit to Paris. I stayed in a private room with 2 single beds. The room was relativity clean but the shower/bathroom needs an update. The room is small as to be expected for a hostel in Paris. The beds w

Dear Companion, Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay at our hotel. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. Regarding the size of our rooms they do respect the standard of most Parisian Hotels and Hostels and I can assure you that our twin beds are of the standard European size. Regarding check -in time it is fixed at three o' clock because our housekkeping staff need to clean all the rooms after checking out but we do offer free baggage service and you can wait in our lobby where you have toilets, showers, tv, a computer, internet, coffe machine, a bar and a kitchen that you can use all day long. If you would be willing to give us a chance to turn your experience around; it would be such a pleasure to personally welcome you back to our improved hotel. Warm regards Viviana FEBO Manager

Stayed in an ensuite room but the room was really small with no air-conditioning. Located just walking distance to Gare du Nord station which you can take the airport train. They have a kitchen where you can prepare your own food. Receptionist speaks good English.

There was a long dark hair in the bed when I pulled back the duvet for the first time.
Mould in the bathroom, which stank so badly of gas / drains / toilet I vomited.
This is what greeted me when I went to clean my teeth after arrival.

Hello - Our airplane is scheduled to arrive at 2240 on a Tuesday night at Orly Airport. How late can we check in (in case of flight delays, etc.)? At that time does the metro run? If not, how expensive are taxis from Orly to your hotel? Thanks so much for your help! Brianne
Dear Brianne, We are available 24 hours a day, so you can make the checkin all the night. For the RER it is about 00:35 and for a taxi, it is between 32 to 40 euros. I remain at your disposal Best regards Sandrine

Hi, How long does it reasonably take to walk from Gare du Nord carrying 1 wheeled suitcase and two bags? (2 Persons) Do we just turn right out of the station and keep walking? It sounds a bit scary! Do we get towels in a twin room please? Thank you.
Hello! It will take normally (without bags) so i'm guessing with two bags+suitcase it will take maximum 10minutes! You keep going right, and after you cross the street to the right! You can contact us at any time! For Twin rooms towels are included! Looking forward to receive you, kind regards, Mafalda
