“Worst Hotel I have ever stayed in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2008

This hotel came as part of a coach tour package so we had no choice. Where do I start?
The place was filthy. Everywhere was in need of a good clean. Our room was one of the better ones and that was still bad. Some people in our party took one look and walked out of their rooms. Stained carpets and bedding were the most commen complaints. Incidentally the dirty linen was left in the corridors the entire weekend. Besides anything else - what a fire hazard!
Our window had a view of a disused factory - broken windows and all. The heater fell off the wall when I touched it and with only one blanket per bed we needed it!

There were four beds jammed into our room which meant that we could not get the chair out from under the desk.

We did not go out but people who did came straight back in feeling very threatened by the neighbourhood.

Now to the food! Breakfast was included and was the usual continental fare. No problem but can we have ham that is not going off. i cannot say that I enjoyed that stomach bug much...

All in all we will go back to Paris but NEVER to this hotel.

Stayed here as part of a tour. Most people that we saw seemed to be in the same boat. Meal they gave us was very average, as was the breakfast offerred. Rooms were small (we were sharing in 4's), but at least they were clean. They did look very old though.

The bar was a rip off - I paid 5 euro for a single bourbon on the rocks (four seasons), and then an extra 3.50 for a small coke to drink it with. Absolute joke.

I suppose it was fine if you were on a tour like ours, but otherwise, I'd suggest staying clear and forking out the extra to stay closer and somewhere nicer.

  • Liked — Leaving (also i don't think it was that expensive a place)
  • Disliked — drinks & food
  • Stayed May 2008

ok so we stayed here as part of a tour and i wasnt expecting anything fantastic - and thats what i got.
the room provided 4 people with one double and two singles pushed together which left a tiny ammount of space to squeeze around in.
the shower was good with hot water as you would expect in a hotel but there was no lip at the base of the shower so the whole bathroom flooded and no ventaliation so everything was damp.
i only found one powerpoint and it was put in such a way that you couldnt fit any adapters in (pretty useless for international travellers)
on the plus side the bar man was nice (even if he did overcharge a little) and the breakfasts were sufficient.
i hope i dont have to stay here again, there must be nicer options available!!!

  • Liked — breakfast
  • Disliked — bathrooms, crampedness
