Vacation stay away from tourist

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Quiet, clean and comfortable. Cheaper than hotels near tourist spots.
Stayed here because it was near Cite University. Quarter to half mile walk to Metro line 1 or RER B ( From airport) so easy access to the tourist areas. The area is very buisness oriented and the hotel seemed more for businessmen than tourist. Nice decor, room was very clean and comfortable. Room was cleaned daily. I would feel good about recommending them to a friend as long as they were willing to hike a ways to metro. Neighborhood seemed very safe.

Subway access is ok to get around.

Good for budget travel. Convenient yet not too noisy area. Safe to walk around at night.

Good if you need a place to sleep and shower.

This Hotel is alright, but it is definitely not deserving of 4 stars. It is more like a good 3 star hotel. The station is about 800m away, which is not fun during cold winter.

Last stop on our honeymoon

Posted Oct 4, 2012
Pros: comfy beds!!!!
Cons: neighborhood
This was about 30 minutes on the train from the center of Paris. Train station is very close, about 5-10 minute walk. We only stayed a weekend which was enough time for us to explore the downtown area and have some good meals. The hotel had a buffet breakfast which was pretty tasty. Overall, the hotel was very lonely during the time that we visited (early Sep) as was the area surrounding the hotel. The neighborhood was safe just quiet and lots of business spaces. Random note, if you are going to be ordering a cab, do not order it from the hotel. They have their own personal driver that overcharges A LOT. much better to call a cab yourself.

Great hotel for the price - A bit of a walk though

Posted May 29, 2012
Pros: Great hotel for the price. A bit too far for me from the nearest metro.
Keep in mind it's a 15minute speed walk to the closest metro station (30 stroll) and the hotel is a bit hard to find. You will see the "Mercure" light up sign on a building with other hotel signs but the hotel itself is a couple blocks (2-3) left from the sign. Don't bother taking the elevator down (up is okay), you will be retired by the time it comes - Seriously, I waited 15 minutes because the stairs looked like they would trigger the fire alarm. I was wrong, stairs were fine, take the stairs down!

Cons: The pillows, like most hotels, were not comfortable
This hotel was quiet very clean and spacious with plenty of lovely hot water. The kettle with tea & coffee in our room is certainly a draw card for us. A bit out of the way of the city centre but easily accessible by public transport.

Pros: croissants
Cons: the hotel
Location: nice location
I have traveled a lot. The idea that this hotel is a 4* is ridiculous. First off, 2 adults and 1 child meant that there was a cod bed brought in. And as much as I understand how the European hotels work, it was hot. Even when i opened the windows. The plus is that it is close to the subway and also close to the ERE. Ohh and the croissants are not bad at all. No minibar, No food service.

Rooms do not make you feel in a 4*

Posted Jan 23, 2012
Location: outside Paris, in Montrouge. 10mins walk from subway
No minibar, no locker. No bathtub, just a shower in not a really good condition. Staff was friendly

Not impressed

Posted Aug 5, 2011
It was far away from turist atractions and transport. Good for business but not for leisure. There was not enough personal at the front desk to help on demand. Not good quality of service.

Average Hotel, far from City Center

Posted Aug 5, 2011
This was a very average hotel, perhaps 3 star (max). The rooms were OK, i.e. clean. The location of the hotel is rather far from city center. The metro stop is about 10 min walk. There is a bus that stops infront of the hotel (125), but takes much longer if you wait for the bus to go to the metro station. Would not recommend this hotel, less someone has business in close vacinity to the hotel.
