cannot recommend Hotel Des Mines

Posted 01-May-2015
Pros: absolutely nothing
Cons: Staff - decor - lighting - staff
Location: Not that close to the metro - the area is out of the main activity area - not far to Luxemburg Gardens
The appearance was gloomy and dull. The woman at reception was unfriendly and curt. Would not stay here

It is what it is.

Posted 15-Apr-2015
We stayed for two nights, so the hotel was fine. It was clean enough and the staff was friendly enough. The quarters were tight. The bathroom was extremely small and the bedroom was just big enough for bed. The room and hotel had no ambiance or character. It was bare. But like I said, we needed a cheep place for two nights in this location, and this hotel served that purpose. We were barely at hotel.

Decent overall but value for $ not quite what I was looking for. Great location near metro and Jardin de Luxembourg.

Not a smile to be found.

Posted 30-Mar-2015
Hotel was clean and the beds were comfortable but that's about it. The woman who checked us in clearly didn't want to be there and none of the staff seem to want to smile. The man who checked us out was more polite though. There was no safe in the room and don't expect your free newspaper or the lovely flowers etc that are in the photos. They do provide free toiletries and the shower was easy and nice to use. Overall I was disappointed with the hotel and I think you could get better for the money.

Great location and fantastic service

Posted 19-Mar-2015
Pros: Stuff, service, cleanness, location and most of all the price.
Cons: Air condition should work all year long rather than only in summer. The toilet seat was very close (almost half a foot) to the wall.
Location: The location was perfect for every thing such as tourist attractions, Metro, local veg/fruit market which i like very much.
We booked a double room. Very clean but in small size. The air conditioning wasn't working because of winter season (???) but the heaters were working perfectly fine. I had to open the window during the night for fresh air but because of the main road side room it was noisy however they happily changed our room with a courtroom side room which was twice as big and had four bed. The stuff are fantastic in every possible way which it made our stay extremely pleasant. The breakfast was basic but you have the choice of having it if you want. I think it is great for anyone staying as a choice. WI-FI works in selective spots when in 4th or 5th floor.

Ottima posizione ma nulla di che per il resto

Posted 15-Mar-2015
Hotel vicino alla stazione della metro, forse l'unica nota positiva! Una struttura vecchia, con stanze veramente piccole e il bagno a dir poco invivibile, è vero che a Parigi le stanze di hotel sono tutte piccole ma non pensavo così ( fortuna che StavAmo solo per dormire)! Sul personale? Non posso dilungarmi molto visto che l'unico approccio era Bonjour e merci alla consegna delle chiavi! Se non si hanno molte pretese e la stanza serve solo per poche ore per riposare allora lo posso consigliare per il prezzo, ma non soffermatevi qui, c'è sicuramente di meglio!!!!

Really small room right near the train

Posted 12-Mar-2015
Small room near the train. You can hear/feel the train go by so if you are a light sleeper, not the place for you. The location is wonderful though. Right between two RER stops with easy access to everything in Paris. We were hardly on the room and by the time we got back we were too tired to be bothered by a little noise. They offer breakfast for 10 euro a person but we opted to go to the grocery store two buildings down.

Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Posted 21-Feb-2015
Location: Gute Lage in der Nähe des Jardin de Luxembourg, zu Fuß schnell im Univiertel. RER Station um die Ecke.
Paris im Februar zu empfehlen: weniger Touristen - somit ebenso kürzere Wartezeiten bei Sehenswürdigkeiten.
