Slightly better than hell.Posted Jun 19, 2014
Pros: Leaving it in the morning.
Cons: Tear it down and start from scratch.
Location: Better than the middle of the Sahara, but not by much.
The Balladins Aulnay Garronor shouldn't be allowed. Dingy, dirty, uncomfortable, inaccessible and noisy are the words that best describe it. Our toilet didn't work properly, and then it ran all night. The shower and the toilet and the sink were all open except for a curtain. The sound of the creaky elevator resonated through the room all night like the sound of whales looking for love in the Pacific ocean. Beds were quite uncomfortable. Room was tiny. It's over a half mile through industrial park to the nearest restaurant, which wasn't much to speak of. You'll need to bring bottled water, the tap water is awful, and there's no place to buy it anywhere near the hotel unless you hire a Sherpa for a guide. Avoid it. You have been warned.

Holding itself backPosted May 27, 2014
Pros: Room clean and quiet.
Cons: Transport information could be provided (see above). Also the hotel lacks facilities as basic as vending machines.
Location: An industrial estate, a cemetary and, after a walk, a housing scheme with a precinct of closed shops.
Hotel appears to actively disguise its transport links with Paris. The 350 bus runs half hourly, from a stop 5 minutes walk away (turn right at the roundabout, past the cemetary and take the road on the right after the motorbike track), and costs 2 euro for a 40 minute journey. This information cannot be gleaned in the hotel.

One Week Stay - No hot water ...AT ALLPosted Apr 24, 2014
Pros: Easy drive to centre of Paris( only if you have a car ...i was lucky and had one with GPS and only the one nice front desk worker. BUT NOTHING ELSE!
Cons: Beside a meager breakfast at the hotel....the best you can do for anything ...alcohol, snack, drink, baguette etc. is at the gas station on A1 9k away
Location: Airport and nothing else unless you have a car. Bus 350 is slow and and takes you to public transportation that is AVG-I WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!
One very pleasant manager who spoke great english and was helpful. Hot water was out completely and never fixed during my stay. I don't mind basic hotels....but this place is in a bad location and has seen better days. However, the rest of the staff had no clue and even though I stayed a week would hassle me as to wether or not I was a guest. Two security gates to enter the property and in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Only freezing cold water for a week ( every day was told it would be fixed tomorrow) was unacceptable and no staff member was even slightly empathetic. In fact when I asked each night if the hot water was back ...staff were aggravated as if it was my problem only. NO offer of free breakfast etc. IN fact , one night I rented a room in PARIS by gare de Nord so that I could shower and shave at least once in the 6 days I was there.

Get's the job done, bare bonesPosted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
It you are just looking for a no-frills hotel that "get's the job done:" this is it...very high price:value ratio for a hotel, but no phone in the room, no dinner options, only 1 restaraunt within walking distance...internet is free (BIG PLUS) and front desk staff speaks English well so that works, but you are in the middle of an industrial park so the surroundings feel like warehouses and office buildings

Do not stay at this place!Posted Aug 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
I, along with five of my colleagues, was booked in to stay at this 'hotel' for two months as we are carrying out some work in France. Apart from breakfast, the hotel restaurant was closed for the summer and as the hotel is situated in an industrial estate, there was simply nowhere to get something to eat. There is no kettle in the room and I had no running water at all in my room for two days. During a heat wave, I couldn't even maintain the basics of personal hygiene. I hated every second of my stay here and I would highly reccommend anyone else to save themselves the hassle by just staying somewhere else.

Lack of Better FacilitiesPosted Aug 14, 2013
Pros: Located at quiet and peaceful place, yet reachable by public transport
Cons: Too close to cemetery, dangerous for lonely person in the night
Location: Very nice place though
We had more expectations than provided, such fridge, better bathrooms, ceiling fan or air-conditioner, rooms are too small.

Best with a car... Good price!Posted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is located in an industrial/commercial business center. Great if you have a car, or if you are crashing before heading to the Airport. I enjoyed my 8-9 day stay regardless of the remote hotel location. The staff were really nice and very helpful translators. The breakfast was filling and worth the 7.5 Euro's (try to find breakfast cheaper). The rooms were clean but hot (no AC), I was there end of July. The 350 bus is right out front and will take you to the north end of Paris for about 2 Euro (bus doesn't run late...so plan ahead)! Also plan to bring food to munch on... there is nothing open past 8pm. Good place for the price! Not the Hilton... so drop your expectations or dish out some cash and stay somewhere else!

Unfriendly staffPosted Aug 4, 2013
Location: Too far away
The room was small which would be fine if it was close to Paris it's so far away even the taxi's couldn't find it. There were no facilities in the room for coffee . The gentlemen on afternoon and overnight at the the front desk was helpful when I had a request , but overall staff are unfriendly. day shift staff were chilly and barely gave me the time of day. I would not recommend this place not a happy stay.
