As this is my first visit to Paris, I have little by which to judge this hotel but my experiences elsewhere.
A big plus for this location is its proximity to the RER rail line coming from CDG airport.
The place is neat and clean. The rooms are on the smallish side, but all you need is there.
The staff are quite helpful. I am amazed at how well they communicate in Engish.
Buyer Beware! Convenient, maybe, but this hotel location is in such a sketchy area!
I wish this was fiction, but you can't make this stuff up...
The hotel is right off the train station down a dark alley. The first night, there were 2 people sleeping on the sidewalk in front of the hotel and some people begging. The next morning, no joke, there was a homeless man looking at a porno magazine in broad daylight next to the hotel. The next day, there was a guy passed out in the alley with puke around him.
So disgusting and not a welcome sight coming home or leaving. The whole area around the hotel feels gross and incredibly unsafe. I saw several sketchy people use the lobby as a walk-through zone as well.
Staff was both pleasant and rude, depending on who you talked to. Room was nice, but we were in one of the bigger ones. Pool is small, we did not get breakfast. All in all, I would absolutely avoid, especially if you have kids, and find a hotel in a nicer area further from the smell of urine.
