You Get What You Pay For
Posted May 10, 2016
First of all, the price of those hotel was great, and I shouldn't have expected too much for $55/night. The area is pretty decent, there is a train stop right across the street and a metro stop a few blocks away. There are several bars with happy hours nearby and plenty of good coffee and food nearby. To get to any of the popular locations in Paris you will have to take the metro, a cab, or walk a ton. This was all pretty good, but the hotel itself lacked. The rooms were tiny with no closet space. For two people you get two twin beds that have been pushed together. If you want your room cleaned, new towels, or anything else that is standard at most hotels, you have to pay extra. It was almost 8 euros to have the room turned down. I tried to check our early so I could spend a weekend in a different part of the city but the hotel refused my request. Luckily I didn't spend a ton of time at the hotel, so it was a cheap option for a bed and a place to leave your stuff.
