“Hotwire Customers Beware - Not a 4 Star Hotel !”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

I booked this hotel through Hotwire. It was listed (without being named) as a 4-star hotel. It is not a 4 star hotel. The sign on the front door and the hotel's own literature (not to mention the quality of the place) is not 4 star. I have stayed at numerous hotels all over Paris and this is a good 3 star hotel AT BEST.

If you are a Hotwire customer, they only give you the smallest rooms in the "04" series which face into a outdoor shaft meaning that the room is very dark.

The bathrooms are new and the rest of the room fairly decent, although very dated, but not worthy of a a 4-star rating in any city.

Room Tip: Don't book through Hotwire.

We were a group of 21 and we stayed in 21 rooms from the 8th to the 10th of July 2011.
On the 9th evening after we returned from dinner, one of my friends' Bag was broken open and a Blackberry Mobile was stolen. On complaining to the Management, they showed their helplessness, and informed us that the cleaning of Rooms were outsourced hence the Management could not be made responsible.
This is utter nonsense....

Not expected from a Best Western group Hotel.
I will not recommend any Best Western group Hotel to anyone anywhere.....

Rooms were booked in Nov. 2010 and we discovered that in January 2011 they changed ownership, without notifying us. A lengthy discusion had to be made in order to come to agreement on the arrangements made in November. Yet no free bottled water and other small perks, initially included in the deal, were supplied. Disappointing was also the fact that reception staff (except the friendly lady from Kenya) did not bother to get to know and recognize their guests!

This hotel is - like all hotels I have been to in Paris - low quality. You have to forget international hotel standards when you are in Paris. For a price of well above 100 Euros per night you get a small, dirty room with worn down furniture.
But - as I said - this is usual in Paris. So this hotel is good average if you compare among Paris hotels
Quite far to walk to main attractions. Flat screen TV and minibar in the room. WLan available for charge. Breakfast included.

I arrived from Charle De Gaulle Airport at 6:45 A.M. Within 10 minutes of my arrival-my room was ready. Petit Dejeuner was expensive 15 euros-but it is Paris, after all. Buses nearbly that go to Gare de L'Est. I dicovered that you cannot change dollars to euros at banks in France.
