Bed bugs, dirty and old. Do not stay at this hotel! On day two of our stay we found a bed bug crawling across the bed! We caught it in a plastic cup from the bathroom and brought it to the reception, very grossed out. We were moved to another, tiny room for the night, but there is a good chance that our luggage has bed bugs or bed bug eggs on it. The next day we were moved again to a bigger room. When I asked for a partial or full refund, because we now need to fumigate or treat our suitcases, clothes and other items, I had a very unfriendly receptionist tell me “No, why would we do that?” When I inquired about this via Expedia message to the hotel, they accused me of “misleading” them about the bed bugs, and that according to them there were none! Strange, when I caught a live bug in their room AND they fumigated the room we caught it in. We noticed the strong chemical smell the next day, when walking by the floor and door of our previous room, as well as towels draped around the door of that room. This is hands down my worst experience in any hotel. And here are other points to consider: - carpets and furniture is dirty and old, out of the 1970’s - the shower doesn’t drain properly, black mold at the bathroom ceiling - unfriendly receptionists - no air conditioner, very hot and stuffy in Summer - very dirty and loud neighbourhood, does not feel safe. Awful experience!!!!!

Strike this off your list
This hotel was chosen for is close vicinity to Gare du Nord. Other than the convenient location, everything else was disappointing. When we entered our room, the lever of one of the windows was broken which meant the window could not be closed and locked securely. When we reported to the front desk and requested for a change of room, we were told there was no other room available, worse still, the receptionist had the nerve to say that the window was fine before we entered the room, which implied that we broke the window lever! This was completely unacceptable and shocking. Furthermore, the hotel was very run down, the paint work and wood work had cracks and not maintained. The only saving grace was the beds had clean sheets!

Fair 4.0
Disgusting with dirt and bad smells - Avoid
Friendly staff and free Wi-fi in the room - the good points end there. •The room was filthy with mould and black build up of dirt everywhere. • Bed was broken and sloped in the middle •Hotel smells awful throughout. A strange sweaty odour which is always there •shower and bathroom is barely big enough for one person, not to mention again, needing a massive clean. All in all, maybe my worst ever hotel experience. To add to this, it’s in an areas where you have people outside the hotel selling fake cigarettes and other illicit goods. Would not recommend.

Good 6.0
Lady at the reception was very nice. Room Carpet dirty & with stains. Lady housekeeper very nice. I asked Man during night shift for a 4am wake up call since I had a 5am pick up, he said he wrote it but I never got it. If my cellphone alarm had not awakened me, I would have missed my pick up/flight.. He heard me as I was strugling to get all of my bags out from the 1 person elevator and didnt come to help . Only helped a bit after I asked, only with 1 luggage half way. Good location close to train station.

bad Neighborhood
Neighborhood is so bad and it is not a safe environment. People in groups are smoking near the entrance of the hotel and there are a lot of people on the Pavement/Foot path. It is not friendly environment and we did not feel safe. + No Air Condition + Small Elevator only two small people can fit in with out any luggage + Other floors are in dark and I did not see any other guests + WiFi is spotty and did not work It is very convenient to NORD Train station and that was the reason we preferred this but I would not go there again.
