Stayed here for three nights after a London/Paris tour. We selected it because it was near the Eiffel Tower and the rate was reasonable (not cheap) and included breakfast.
We had a small room on the second floor that faced the street. No view except a big building across the street. The bed was comfortable and both the bedding and drapes looked new, and we were expecting a smaller room. However the bathroom was very unpleasant. All of the fixtures, the tub, the sink and the toilet, and the tile was clipped and broken. Usable but not nice. The door to the bathroom had a hole in it like someone punched the door. The most unpleasant part for me was the mildew and stains in the shower (ick).
We arrived late at night, exhausted and sick with bad colds. If I had been feeling well at all I would have asked for another room as soon as we saw it. Surely not all the bathrooms are in this bad condition.
Breakfast was another mixed bag. There was bread, cheese, pastries, yogurt, and juice on the buffet. One morning everything was replenished but the next morning most items were almost or completely gone. Hot drinks were also rare because they were not self-serve. The attendant had to go into the back room to prepare each cup. First morning I got one small cup of coffee but none the next morning because I could not catch up with the attendant. We skipped the breakfast there entirely the third morning.
I wanted to rate this hotel terrible because my experience was terrible - but I think "poor" is a more accurate rating. I would not recommend this hotel to friends.
