My stay at Hotel Maxim was terrible, and it can't be attributed to bad luck. From management to the morphology of the rooms, everthing's wrong. Overall quality is low even for a two-star hotel and it is definitely not worth 125 euros (for this price, big chain hotels are way better). First, property was really inadequate. Dirty sheets (which stayed that way the whole week), slimy shower curtain, dusty carpet. Decoration, which is supposed to look hip and modern, is so cheap that everything already looks worn down. Mattress is antediluvian, shower is diminutive even for parisian standards, and water pressure is, well, non-existent. Wanting to shorten my stay, I was confronted to a arrogant and unaccomodating staff. One night, I was even stuck for 15 minutes in front of the hotel, ringing the bell continuously, without anyone answering... Oh yeah, make sure you don't pay 9 euros for the insipid and very small breakfast they serve, and walk to a nice café instead.
It is a great neighbourhood and a calm location, but these advantages can't compensate for the sheer unprofessionalism of this place.More
