Amazing Location, Disappointing Accommodations
Posted Jun 17, 2012
Location is the only redeeming quality of this hotel. It is beautifully located in the Marais: just a short stroll to the Pompidou, literally down the street from the Places des Vosges (great spot for a picnic), and only 15-20 minutes on foot to the Seine, Notre Dame, etc.
We rented an "economy double" room and were not expecting anything fancy. However, we were VERY disappointed by the shared bathrooms and showers and found the hotel to be in dire need of renovations, as it feels very musty and old. Luckily our disappointment in the room encouraged us to leave early in the morning and stay out late, making the most of our time in Paris!
