If you dream of fashionable cafes, beautiful boulevards, enticing patisserie shops, basking in the Parisian ambiance and coming home to reminisce in comfortable room, then stay the hell away from this place.
This was one of the biggest mistakes made on our 7 month trip. I don’t think you will need to ask why after you have looked at our photos of the ‘double bed’. Now check their website, the Studio standard room description, “one double or two twin beds”, look at the photos, see a real bed? No, that couch is the bed, not a double, but two tiny foam beds! They are too small to sleep on, so we had to put them on the floor, all rooms are the same.
I am fussy, I’ll admit. But I’ll let you decide if at €110 a night the following points don’t persuade you to look elsewhere: there is no air conditioning, or heating; the kitchenette is tiny and not well equipped; only weekly cleaning; you have to take your own garbage down to the basement; no washing up liquid or dish drying towels; there are no fire sprinklers, anywhere; the carpet odour, et de fungus. And to cap it off, the neighbourhood - it is the antithesis of everything you imagine in enchanting Paris.
