We were stuck at Hotel de France for a week for a conference during May. DO NOT book a room here or agree to stay here for more than one night if you must. I have never seen such a disgusting, dirty hotel. Our room was infested with cockroaches; the pillows were disintegrating; the sheets and towels always had hair or stains on them with every change. The rooms are poorly ventilated and have a high level of humidity, which could account for the permanently moldy, musty odor in our room. There is zero soundproofing so we could hear every sound other guests made in the rooms adjacent/above/below, in the hallway. If you bring anything valuable, be prepared to carry it with you everywhere as you are asked to leave your key at a public key desk that anyone can access without any hindrances whatsoever and there are no security boxes in the rooms. The hotel also advertises free WIFI - it only works intermittently during the morning and afternoon. Lastly, most of the men who worked the reception/concierge desk at Hotel de France were either rude or lazy - and I do not say this lightly: I had to ask several times across two different days for new linens when housekeeping did not leave linens; when we came home one evening and had to kill 15 or so roaches and requested to switch rooms, the staffer was incredibly condescending and attempted to convince us repeatedly that there were no roaches in the hotel whatsoever; and lastly, one of the elder staffers consistently insulted us by telling us about how awful and racist Americans are. The only positive aspect of this hotel is that it is close to the Comedie and the train station (for a speedy evacuation)!

Easily the worst hotel we've ever stayed in. The years cannot erase the distaste nor the fear that this nearly deserted hotel inspired. We did not sleep a wink for the heat, the street noise, and the creepy feel of the place. Why the hotel is still in business is beyond me.

Simply put its a vile little hole, that is nothing like its pictures on the webvsite I booked through.

I've stayed in some grotty places in the world whilst packpacking etc, but this was special....

Try elsewhere!
