Residance Montparnasse: "Hotel hell" France Hotel Tip by Viking_Girl

France Hotels: 360 reviews and 325 photos

by Viking_Girl

Wonderful stay in Paris despite the hotel which was dirtier than an boys dormroom !
Toilet was broken. I am serious!!! The ceramic thing was broken, it was useable but one would not want to touch it, cause it was so dirty. The wardrobe had huge burnmarks on it and all the walls had spots on them. There was some kind of brownish/red splatter all over the bathroom walls.

They said they had an ironing board but what they meant is that you could go down in the basement and use the chaimbermaids ironing board between 10 am and 2 pm. While you use it they will wait to be able to continue their work.

First we thought they just had lazy cleaning people but after we saw what their workplace was like down in that basement we felt sorry for them and left them a huge tip when we left.

Do not stay here!!!!

Unique Qualities: To be fair some of the lobby staff was really nice. Especially this one young guy who works weekends.

Address: Rue Stanislas, just off Blvd Du Montparnasse. Close to Tour Montparnasse
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Price: US$80-120
Theme: Hotel
