I have several photos that I took from the room at the Avalon. I will be glad to share these photos with you if you care enough to respond about my experience during this stay at Avalon Hotel in Paris. It was the worst HOTEL I ever stayed in, honestly, no exaggeration here. My son was with me and his nose was bleeding from excessive exposure to heat.
Cracks on the walls right above above the bed and many areas with peeled paints. Bathroom is so dirty around the toilet and inside the shower. The ventilation opening is broken and on the floor against the wall next to the Toilet. The water in the shower disposes slowly... most of the time you are standing in a pool of water while you are taking your shower.
The only reason I booked the Hotel because it is near "Gare du Nord" and because it has an air conditioning unit. However, There is an Air-condition exist in the unit but it is not-operational. I called for help to turn the unit on and raised the issue with management at the help desk, but was told that Air Conditioning unit were installed a year ago but not operational. My stay was a very hot day in Paris well above 90 F. You must keep windows open, otherwise you get roasted... then it is way too noisy and very busy area, people on the streets, cars never stops passing by, train, subway, all kind of noises that you DO NOT GET any sleep.As a matter of fact, we got 2-pairs of sealed "Foam Ear Plugs" orange color to use for noise. I Don't have more space to write.
