Good hotel in a location enabling quick access to the centre of Paris. The Hotel isn't in the smartest location with occasional unsavoury people hanging around later at night in the nearby cafe. The staff are very helpful and friendly and spoke good English. The rooms are reasonable with plenty of lights and power sockets. Hot water was always no problem. Beds fairly firm but comfortable.
Service is excellent, it is inexpensive, but the rooms are 2 star quality at best. It is couch turn bed (comfortable though), cheap lighting, ok bathroom, and in general a small room. But this hotel is not a 3 star it should be a 2 star in a very sketchy neighbourhood. Hotel is close to metro station. Breakfast is ok.
Suite-Home*** Paris Porte de Pantin is located in the north part of Paris only 5 minutes from the metro, bus stations …More
I was disappointed that a hotel costing just under £100 would lack basic essentials such as tea & coffee making facilities, more disappointing was the fact that in my original room the drawers and cupboard doors were coming off their hinges, the windows and mirrors were dirty as we're the bath and sink. The Toilet pan desperately needed bleaching and the damp in the bathroom was more than obvious with the papers peeling off and the flush button broken.
I regularly stay In hotels all over the world and in all honesty this has to be the worst experience of them all.
After complaining I was quickly offered a replacement room which was better, but again the bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly enough, to warrant hotel standards.
Overall the cleaning staff had not done a good job, which reflected on the hotel & it's staff.
I would defiantly avoid this hotel in future.
I checked in to find my room right on a major road junction above the "restaurant" which was an annexe away from the main building. I wouldn't put my pet dog in such a place. The smell of damp hit you as you walked in the room. It was a family room with the single bed at floor level. I have seen better curtains on windows in squats. It would have been nice to have hot water, alas it wasn't to be, a shave in cold water is not my ideal start to the day.
If you eat in the restaurant, please eat the pizza as the Plat du jour is hardly edible. The salad bar food looked as though it had been there since March. The steak(?) was gristle with a bit of meat attached to it. I will say that the frites were good.
There was no one at reception to check me out so I left, though I had paid up front, so not too worried.
I'm sorry that I could not possibly recommend this place to anyone.
