Stayed in Paris for 3 nights at Normandy Hotel. Within 5 hours of checking in and heading out to grab a bite, our room was broken into. We arrived back at our room to find our door open and balcony door open. Suitcases were rifled through and we were missing a backpack, jewelry, purses, electronics, gifts, etc. We had 4 policemen and a forensics guy investigate and take pictures and fingerprints. The hotel did NOTHING for us, we asked to move rooms and they wanted to put us right next door to the crime scene. They basically came out and said they cannot confirm there was a robbery and we need to wait for the police to conclude their investigation. What [--]! They said we may have drawn attention to ourselves because of a flashy watch! On top of this, the rooms had NO AC, just a small fan they needed to come and plug in. CANADIAN travellers beware, we were told we were a target. We did not feel safe for 3 nights at this hotel, no cameras and a very, very old building. I'm not saying someone on their staff was involved, BUT I'm not ruling it out either. Better safe than sorry, FIND ANOTHER HOTEL. After the incident, it caused us a lot of inconvenience as they had stole our credit cards, debit cards. Luckily, we purchased travel insurance prior to our vacation, when we called the travel insurance they were very accommodating and in fact shocked that this had happened in Paris. They ensured us we would be reimbursed and made us feel somewhat relieved after all the inconvenience we had gone through. Canadians, ALWAYS remember to purchase travel insurance. This was the best purchase that we could have made.
