We saw mixed reviews for this hotel both very bad and very good so we booked hoping for a very good experience. We arrived 2 hours early so they would not talk to us or check us in and there was no nearby restaurant although we did find the train station and the grocery store. When we check in, it was a quick as possible in order to make it to Paris by train before some sights closed. When we returned, the front desk was no longer open. It is only open in the morning and then from 4-8pm. The unit was filthy. There were holes in the wall where a stairrail had been torn down, no extra toilet paper, no curtains for some windows, stains on the walls and on the carpets. There were dust bunnies under the bed, no appearance of vacuuming, spashes of food on the kitchen walls, dust on every baseboard and surface. There was much grease from previous cooking and dust stuck in the grease, alot of mold in the shower and no light in the hall. Second to the filth was the lack of security. We were given a code to access the lobby to get to the courtyard and a code in to our building. It turned out you could walk to the side of the lobby building right through to the courtyard and the lock to the door of our building was punched out so that was also not needed. Most of the units appeared to be rented to tenants fulltime with only unrented apartments being the "hotel". At midnight a fight broke out in another unit in our building. There was much yelling in a foreign language and bashing around. Of course there was no one at the front desk to call and then we discovered there was no telephone at all. We thought to call the police on our cell phones but there was no hotel information in the room about how to make calls. There were enough towels but not toilet paper, there were enough beds and the bedding appeared clean hoever we sneezed all night due to the dust. The apartment was large, spacious and well equipped having a kitchen but no soap to wash the dishes and with so much filth it was hard to trust the cleanliness of the dishes and I was suspicious of the possibility of bedbugs. If the front desck would have been open I would have insisted on them cleaning the room, a refund, or changing to a different room. To top it off, we met a cleaning lady in the hall the next morning who wanted us out at 10am although checkout was 11. I really wanted to watch her do her "job".
