We booked this hotel based on the comments other visitors to this hotel made, everyone has their opinion, this is mine.
First the entrance to the Cite Bergere was dirty and littered with rubbish, it also seemed to be a meeting place for the homeless. The are a few hotels in this short side street and there was a lot of building work going on, there were lots of skips, holes in the road and many obstacles to get past.
The hotel Aston is at the bottom of this short road and looked ok, inside there is a very small reception, consisting of a desk, 4 chairs two small tables, no lounge area, nowhere to sit and enjoy a drink or read the paper.
The lift holds app. 2 people, or one person and a suitcase, the corridor, once out of the lift is app. 2' 6" wide very claustrophobic, the room was small, a bed, two side tables, a dressing table which edged side on to a very small wardrobe. The tiny bathroom was through a grey formica clad door, a small bath with a shower which I had to crouch under, there is no room to dry yourself in the bathroom and it had a peculiar odour.
My husband asked if there were any larger rooms, he was told no, all rooms in Paris are small but the receptionist did say he had smaller rooms available. I cannot believe how this hotel got three stars, it has no facilities just bedrooms and a basement for breakfast.
All the staff we met were polite and helpful.
The basement breakfast area was nicely done with the room they had, it must have been the cellar. Breakfast was cold continental but fresh with juices and choice of tea or coffee, fresh bread and croissants.
The area had a choice of bars and cafes all within walking distance.
I have stayed in many European city hotels, this is the worst I have been in, we visited the Louvre, Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, Champes Elysses and the Arc de Triomphe and the many beautiful buildings in Paris but I was so glad to get home after three nights at the Hotel Aston.
