We booked this hotel four weeks before our stay and paid in full. On arrival we were told that the hotel internet was down for the previous 3 days and that they had overbooked so they had no room for us until the following day. We were told to walk to another nearby hotel - with our bags - and come back next morning for breakfast. We told them to wanted a taxi to the other hotel ( 15 minutes by taxi!!!) - which was a 2 star and filthy - hairs on the floor, in bed and pokey room. We spent a very bad night there.
Next morning we went back to New Hotel Candide and was advised to leave our luggage in storage and that a room would be free at 12 noon. We told them that we wanted our room after breakfast which we got.
This was a very bad start to our holiday and we were given the impression by the staff that this was an acceptable way to treat hotel guests coming to stay in Paris. (We travel to European cities at least twice a year and have never been treated like this before)
The room was small, very basic but bed was comfortable. No extras - shower caps, tea/coffee making facilities and the hair dryer was from the 60's. Would never recommend this hotel after our experience.
