If you're looking for a frat house kind of atmosphere to stay in, look no further! This is the place! We decided to stay next to the airport because we had an early morning flight to catch. Even at midnight, there were noisy people in the hallway just hanging out. Maybe that was just one unfortunate incident for us.
But throughout our entire waking hours, we kept hearing a noise like things were being moved, as if someone was pushing large furniture around. It was a strange noise -- especially since it was still going on at midnight and was still there when we woke up at 6 AM. Needless to say, we did not get much sleep.
The room itself is plain and not too small compared to another hotel we stayed at in Paris. It's simple without any frills. However, I did notice an extra blanket under the bed but it looked like it was wrapping something large. I was afraid to poke at it. No strange smell was reeking, and since we were there one night, I wasn't going to find out. I also found a plastic spoon next to that blanket under the bed. This only shows me that housekeeping isn't too concerned about cleaning.
The front desk staff that we dealt with was not only unhelpful, but had this rudeness about them, even though it wasn't blatant. They asked if we would be having breakfast, making you believe it was included. It wasn't until I asked that they said it wasn't. We asked for a non-smoking room, but our request went on deaf ears.
You also have to pay for the shuttle to the airport (although going from the airport to the hotel is free). The guy who drove us to the airport probably thought he was a racecar driver. Luckily there was hardly anyone on the road at that hour.
In short, I would rather pay more to stay somewhere that I can sleep. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
