France Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Villejuif
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I only stayed there for three nights i went with school and stayed with two friends our room was very clean and looked cool the beds were comfy enough i didnt have any trouble sleeping exept on the first night when theyre was people below us making a lot of noise. If your going here i suggest getting a 3 room not a 4 i had a 3 but 4 friends of mine got a 4 and it looked awful. If your going to be exploring all day and just coming to go asleep and leaving early in the morning its a nice hotel i wouldnt choose it if i was going to be in the hotel alot. Over all it was an ok hotel i was expecting a lot worse

Room Tip: Get a 3 not a 4 room

I stayed in this hotel when I went to Paris with school. On the outside, the hotel looked reasonably clean and well looked-after. After checking in, the hallways were really clean and well illuminated by the lights and reflective, shiny ceilings. The room, me and two friends stayed in was really warm and cosy. We had a small fridge and a 19/22inch TV which had brilliant signal despite all the channels were in French, but there was only one channel which had English language, which was BBC News. The only negative aspects of the room were that we found cracks in the ceiling and there was no shower curtain in the bathroom; although the bathroom was really clan apart from minor wear and tear in places. Also there was a lack of hot drink making facilities, there was no kettle in our room. The room I stayed in was at the front of the hotel; which there was a nice view of the streets and the Orthodox Church opposite the hotel. There was no air conditioning but there was air conditioning on like the 4th floor; which was were the girls slept and as the rooms were higher up.

Breakfast was Continental, but you only had a croissant and half a baguette and a choice of cheese and ham to go with it. The drinks were really refreshing, there was a choice of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and orange juice. Overall the food and drinks were lovely apart from there was not a wide range of food to choose from. There was only a small restaurant and bar although the food was lovely and we all received an excellent service.

Room Tip: Air conditioned rooms are on the upper floors as they are up high

Good location near a metro on the outskirts of Paris. In contrast to many of the reviews on here I found the staff friendly and helpful. Its cheap and cheerful with a budget breakfast but you get what you pay for and for €70 a night it was fine. A good place to stay if you just want somewhere to sleep and are spending most of your time exploring which you should be in Paris, it's quite close to Orly too. My room was clean and the bed was comfy. Far from luxurious but I've stayed in far worse hotels in the same star range.

the hotel was nicer then expected as i was travelling with school. the room was ok but we found a french baguette behind the dressing table. . there were bunk beds which were really unsafe. in the bathroom there was no curtin on the shower. Breakfast was crutial. you were given a quater of a role a crosiant and a carton of orange juice. The staff were rude and horrible.

Room Tip: a tree bed room rather then a four.

Stayed in this hotel bit worried with some reviews but it was fine. Good large bedroom with TV, fridge which was helpful! Hairdryer and telephone and very clean.
We had dinner in the hotel as there was a group eating as well it was delicious hot and plenty of it. We found staff speak basic English but they were helpful enough and showed us how to get to and from Paris.
Breakfast is continental and consists of croissants, breads, butter, jam and tea and coffee if you want cheese, ham etc you have to pay a little bit more.
the Metro is opposite the hotel which is great and it took about 20-25 mins to central Paris.
I would stay here again no problem

Positive - clean warm room I slept well and there was plenty of hot water most of the time.

Negative - Rude attitude of some members of staff , lack of tea/ coffee making facilties in the room - no hairdryer bathroom door had a hole in it and could not close and there was no shower curtain.

Only one key per room even if there was two people sharing.
Awful breakfast which consisted of one cold croissant and the end of a dry baggett, cold tea or coffee from a jug. There was no other food provided for breakfast ! My friends and I noticed a very small shop nearby it was about 5 minutes away but we needed to cross a dual carriageway to get there. We had to buy cheese/ ham yogurts / fruit and drinks to go with the breakfast that was Inadequate for travellers setting out for the day to visit Paris.

Our coach was delayed by two and a half hours and because of this a later ferry was caught and after getting stuck in the gridlocked traffic in Paris we arrived at the France Hotel at 9.30 pm after getting ready to set out at 8 am for me and my friends 5 am for others.
Everybody was tired and hungry there was nothing there to eat and no information given to where a hot meal could be brought.

Look around at the reviews before you book.

The weeknd in Paris was good it would have been much better if we had stayed somewhere that provided us with a good breakfast and staff that did not look like they should have been on the cast of Fawlty Towers
