Booked 3 nights for our first maiden trip to Paris..Chose this hotel based on the fairly good reviews here and our main priority would be near to the metro. Price was relatively resonable.
Our standard rm was small and we could barely walk without bumping into each other.
In addition to that, the toilet door could not be fully open as the bed was obstructing it.
On a saturday night after mid night, there was a black out and the fire alarm sound. We panic and thought it was fire as guests were scrambling along the corridor down to the gound level. We waited at the small miserable conceige area, pitch darkness and pissed off as we were supposd to sleep as we are suppose to wake up early and catch a train to London and this should not be happenning! We questioned the hotel guy why would there be no back- up generator or whatsoever, he just sheepishly say he have no idea. Well, all i can say that the hotel staffs are obivously not trained in any form of safety evacuation should a real fire or disaster come upon.
Luckily, the electricity and air con were restored after 2 hrs.
Second night, when i thought that everything would be just be fine and normal , and when i was getting ready to shower as we had to catch a plane early, Yes the lights and electricity were out again... Wow, we are sure getting used to this.. sigh..i cant believe it.. It was pouring cats and dogs when the power was out.. Gosh! why would this have to happen twice.. we scrambled down the stairs and inquiry about whats going on... What pisses me off this time round would be this hotel conceige guy simply just ignore us and did not reassure or any apologies given at all! And i heard from another hotel guest. he mentioned this is the third time - one in the morning... round in 2 days. I was glad and relieved that the next day i was checking out because i simply cant tolerate hotel that is perpetually having the same problem and probably not fixing it. It was physically and mentally exhausting stay with them.
