“Comfortable small hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

My visit in Paris was a short one in interest of business. The hotel was near by all the places that I needed to reach so this was a very important aspect in choosing it. The hotel itself and the rooms are very small and tiny but it compensates with great personal and friendliness. The staff is very attentive and polite, you have free wifi in all the rooms, the breakfast is served until 12:00 and it is very clean and neat. Cadet metro station is also very near and helps you reach any place in Paris that you want. Overall this is a good review, I recommend this hotel for short business trips and for traveling alone. It is not probably a good idea to spend your holiday there, due to the insufficient space in the room, but if you only go for business do not hesitate.

We spent 3 nights here for a short Paris break. The hotel is in an excellent location being only minutes from the metro, yet located in a quiet street. The staff were really helpful and always ready with a smile. The continental breakfast was excellent but there is no restaurant as such because there is no hot food on the premises. The breakfast room is nicely decorated and is comfortable but being in the basement it gets quite warm and begins to feel a little claustraphobic. Everywhere seems very clean, including the room and ensuite. However the room was ridiculously small - one side of the bed was jammed up against the corner of the cupboard which should have housed a fridge. This meant that you couldn't get out of the bed at the side, you had to clamber to the end of the bed to get out of it and the cupboard door wouldn't open wide enough to be able to get a fridge in it; which brings me to my next negative - being a British tea drinker (are we the only ones on the planet who are addicted to tea with milk?) I expect tea and coffee making facilities, with plenty of teabags and milk. However, at this hotel you have to ask for it every day at reception and I was told by one of the guys on reception that I was only allowed one teabag and milk each! Apart from the embarrassment, I don't think it's acceptable to have to beg for tea and milk every day and I was going to buy a carton of milk and box of teabags from the local supermarket but when I asked about the missing fridge I was told that not all rooms have fridges and that it was not possible to put a fridge in our room (because of the tiny tiny space available I assume!) I don't know how this hotel got its 3 star rating - there's no restaurant, the rooms are far too small and the only amenity, the bar, is right opposite the reception so looks like a reception waiting area. I would say that the hotel is ideal for a single person (needing only one side of the bed to get out of!) and/or for a short stay where you only need a bed for the night, a quick breakfast in the morning and one cup of tea a day!

This hotel was relatively cheap for Paris standards but not good value i would say.

The room was dirty especially the carpet which should have been replaced a long time ago. Hairs in the batchroom etc. We nooked and paid for a double room but the double bed was a made up sofa bed, which was the most uncomfortable bed ever. We used the 2 single beds in the room instead.

If we had been staying more than 1 night I would have insisted on moving, but having checked in late we did not have much time to complain. On the other hand friends got a triple room which was much better, looked like it had been decorated more recently, laminate floor rather than threadbare carpet at least.

Our room was also high in the hotel, 5th floor i think and was basically an attic room with a slanted roof, making almost half the room inaccessible without croaching!

Location was not too bad, not that central but fairly easy to het to. We were able to walk to the Sacre Couer. Some very good cheap restaurants near the hotel. Look out for the Japanese on the corner and also down that same road across from the hotel a great authentic French cuiscine, 3 course meal for 12euro!

The other grips was there was absolutley no chance of a late check out even though the hotel details said you could, even if you had to pay, the fairly rude reception staff didn;t even ask the room number just insisted hotel was full and no chance of moving check out

also do not go to this hotel if you do not like those old rickety lifts with the pull over door, the alternative is a long winding spiral stairs !

Room Tip: insist you do not get attic room, and ask for modernised room

Location of the hotel is very good : quiet street , close to a lot of metro / bus lines.

The hotel is clean, even though there are currently transformations at the reception (this will be better in the future).

Rooms are very clean, but they are extremely small and airco didn't work properly.

Personnel is helpful.

Dear Sir,

First of all we apologise for the inconvenient you met which is not corresponding to our standards at all. The air conditionning was not working properly in the hotel during your stay, the maintenance were informed about the problem and they fixed it unfortunatly after your departure.

We are undergoing some transformation in the lobby to improve the quality and the service to our guest and this will be finished at the end of the week.

Hoping to have the pleasure of welcoming you soon again at New Hotel Best Western Lafayette and apologising once more.

Yours sincerely

We had booked 3 double rooms and 1 single room (7 persons) for 16th and 17th May 2011(confirmation recd) payments for the same made in advance. On landing at the hotel we were informed that the there was no room available and shifted to another of their group hotel for the night of 16th may. Were kind enough to transport us to the other hotel at their cost. We were shifted back to the hotel (at our cost) on 17th May. On landing at the hotel we were informed that only 3 double rooms were available and that we will have to adjust accordingly. hence 3 persons had to be accomodated in 1 room. Were helpless but had to accept the situation. Hope they refund us the amount taken in advance for the single room booked. This whole experience left us with a bad taste of Paris as our stay in Paris was only for 2 days.

We stayed at the BW Celte Lafayette 3 nights. The location is great, within an easy walk of Cadet metro station and easily reachable from Gare du Nord.

The check-in staff are friendly and helpful and speak many languages. Breakfast is plentiful. The rooms are clean and there is free internet in the lobby. The showers in the room are very good.

Some areas on which the hotel could have improved are the duvets and bedcovers, which are all acrylic and mean that within 20 minutes of being in bed, you will be lucky not to be sweating like a pig. In this day and age, I'd expect a BW to have cotton sheets and non-synthetic duvets and pillows.

Also, the breakfast policy was weird to say the least. We were there for 3 breakfasts, and the breakfast times changed 3 times. In order to avoid missing breakfast or waking up too early for it, we recommend that you check every evening.
