Oven room (The Dungeon)

Posted 26-Jul-2017
Pros: It was better than being on the street.
Cons: Have the pictures that you show on the Expedia site match the rooms. Install AC units in all rooms, clean more often, speak English, be courteous.
Location: A train station was near. That's the reason why I booked this hotel.
I arrived at the hotel at night. I had been traveling all day by train. My first impression when I got to the room was that it did not look like the pictures I saw on the Expedia site. In order to get in you had to open two consecutive doors (5 inches apart) which made it look odd. The room had a funny smell, and the window had no view. Outside the room window, it was dirty mostly by bird poop and water. One of the soaps was open like somebody had just been there. It was very difficult to sleep because the hotel room did not have any air conditioning, and it was very hot. The beds had only a comforter and no sheets. When I went to see the hotel clerk he was very rude and did not speak English. He told me that not all the rooms had air conditioning and that he did not have another room available. My room had no view, it was dark and hot. My son and I had to take showers at 2 in the morning to be able to fall asleep. Also, my daughter had a rash on her arm, which looked like a bug bite. I was lucky to have booked this hotel for only one night. I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel near Gare de Lyon

Posted 17-Jul-2017
Pros: Location
Cons: They need air conditioning in every room
Location: Walking distance to Gare de Lyon which connects you to every where in Paris. Loads of restaurants and grocery stores in the area.
We checked in around 4:00 PM and they gave us a room without air conditioning. This was in July and the heat was terrible. I went to the front desk and they said that there was nothing they could do because rooms on the first floor did not have an air conditioning unit yet and they were booked 100% for the night. I told them it was still early, they probably had not assigned all the rooms yet. Then, they gave us another room with an air conditioning unit on the third floor. Let me be clear, staff at the hotel were nice and polite, is just that not all of their rooms have air conditioning. Overall, our stay was OK, just the room and the bathroom were VERY small.

Great Location

Posted 10-Aug-2016
The location is the best feature of this hotel. Relatively easy to find. About 5 minutes walk to Gare de Lyon. Don't bother with the breakfast. The coffee, pastries and sandwiches at the L'Espirit Nature just up the street are better & you'll spend less money. The staff were very kind and helpful, but getting our boarding passes printed was troublesome. We had to download the boarding passes and e-mail them to the hotel. It would have been much simpler if we could have just printed directly from the computer. There is an airport shuttle which is convenient but it costs 10 Euros more than the train and it takes longer. The traffic at 4:30 in the afternoon was heavy. For a reasonably priced hotel in a great location you couldn't ask for much better.
