Had a short break in Paris and this was a great spot to be in, right beside the metro that takes you straight in to the Arc De Triomphe and elsewhere! Rooftop bar is good but I’d almost say it closes too early but the club downstairs stays open until 2 am

Das ist kein Hotel sondern ein Hostel oder Jugendherberge. Die Bettleintücher werden nicht ausgewechselt. WC Papier bekommt man je 1 Rolle und nur auf Verlangen. Sehr unsauber, unhöfliches Personal. Kein Föhn oder Badetücher im Zimmer. Unglaublich, das dieses Hotel ein 5 Stern Hotel ist. Nicht weiter zu empfehlen.

Cons: Fenster konnte nicht geöffnet werden, da es kaputt war. Nachttisch war ungebrauchbar, da es ebenfalls kaputt war.
Im grossen und ganzen ein cooles Hostel. Es fand eine Dachterrassenparty statt während unseres Aufenthaltes. Jedoch wurde nicht richtig geputzt im Badezimmer und Fenster und Nachttisch waren kaputt. Wir haben zudem nicht das Zimmer gekriegt, welches auf dem Bild im Internet angezeigt wurde.

Peu confortable

Petit lit double, avec un ressort qui ressortait du côté de Mon mari. Pas de housse de couette. Pas de TV, pas d'armoire! Serviettes jaunies. Quelques toiles d'araignées et saleté au sol. Rideaux sales Prestations de l'hôtel sinon très sympas! Et on a mangé un bon hamburger dans le restaurant. Les pates en revanches n'étaient pas terribles. Le pain au petit déjeuner était dur. L'hôtel à un joli rooftop qui ferme tôt. Bien situé.

Veuillez nous excuser, Nous vous remercions de votre compréhension, Margot & the GenTeam

Fausse annonce

Pros: Je n'y suis pas resté assez longtemps pour apprécier quoique ce soit
Cons: l’honnêteté
Présenté comme un hôtel, il s'agit en fait d'une auberge de jeunesse qui met en avant le prix de ses dortoirs en les présentant sur ebooker comme des chambres individuelles. Lorsqu'on s'aperçoit de la supercherie, il nous est proposé des chambres individuelles a un prix prohibitif avec un service minimum (la chambre ne comporte ni table, ni armoire et je ne parle même pas de télé ou mini bar ...)

Merci pour votre retour. Nous travaillons avec des sites qui diffusent nos bonnes informations, à savoir: que nous sommes un Hostel et non un hotel. En revanche, il peut en effet y avoir des sites qui recopient mal ces informations. Cependant, maintenant que nous le savons nous allons pouvoir nous en occuper et regler ce probleme. Donc en effet, nous n'avons pas de televisions dans les chambres car nous favorisons les rencontres entre clients. Nous esperons néanmoins que vous aurez l'opportunité de revenir nous voir un jour.

Super Praktisch

Sehr freundliche Hotelpersonal. Wir hatten die ganze Zimmer für uns mit Badzimmer und war gut ausgestattet und das Bett war genug bequem. Neben den Hostel ist ein Metro station. Das war super praktisch.
