Worst Novotel ever

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Business - 27/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

1st stay in october was allready bad, hoped for a once-off but unfortunate the way it is.... Childish policies, e.g. around the welcome drinks, really never a problem to get a big beer in all of my stays at other ALL location in UK, NL, FR, BE. Here it was policy to give a small glass....

not better than average

rgoetzen 25/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

the room was ok although there was no fridge. at this time it is not acceptable that nobody asked for the pass sanitaire. What is this in an international city as paris, no german tv in the room? very poor. the parking was too difficult to handle. no exact signs where to go. you have always to phone to open a door. metro near by. breakfast ok.

anniehpauline 24/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Service was not up to the mark I expected. Menu card was missing in the room so could not order from room and was asked to come downstairs, order myself, where I preferred room service after a tiring day. Also was denied to offer a table fan when the room was overheat somehow and despite the fact the central heating is only available during winters and are not room specific of course.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review Concerning the menu card , we have got QR CODE in all the room to get the card on phone Sincerly

Good choice

We stayed for 4 nights. We like this hotel, close to metro and bus station, good breakfast, great view towards the river and Eiffel Tower, very quiet. Toilet (there was no sink) separated from bathroom. I recommend this hotel for family visit to Paris.

Thank you for your positive review, Sincerely

good hotel

Poor stay

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Families - 28/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall did not feel the hotel was well managed and did not serve the guests well. Check in was slow and disorganised with the check in staff joking and taking pictures of each other rather than helping me. I had prebooked check in but this was not possible. Had asked for sofa bed to be made but this was not done before check in. The cupboards were falling off and old and the bedding not well made. Air conditioning didnt cool the room on a hot day. Breakfast was the worst experience with badly managed food and cereals constantly running out and not replaced. Very poor Novotel.

Upon arrival, they had messed up the booking of our 2 suites. Unfortunately only 1 suite was available. This however was compensated with 2 other rooms, and free parking. The location of the hotel is very nice, with direct access to the metro. It is ideal to explore the city.

Very well located

philippeks Family - 05/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Great stay for a unique event, new year eve 2020. Fantastic view on Paris for the firework. Nevertheless, it was a bit too warm in the room and the thermostat didn't work even when having it at the lower temperature. Otherwise all was fine.

Pascal C Business - 23/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Good location, but crowded at the time I stayed, with many groups arriving by bus. Room clean, well equipped, though no bathrobe and slippers despite the advert on the website when I booked (without any change despite the fact I asked at the front desk to get them..). There was cleaning work at the room floor, a fact that was not mentioned at the time of reservation, which resulted in inconvenient noise. Breakfast abondant, with nice staff. To summarize, a good location for staying with a travel group, staff at the front desk not enough attentive. I would not recommend it for romantic stay, or even for individuals in business travel.

This hotel used to be better

348bob2018 Couples - 21/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

The restaurant was very mediocre. The first day the Wi Fi was not working and the second day it was very slow. Some of the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful ,others were extremely hostile and uncooperative. Because our flight was at 6 in the morning we wanted to check out the night before but the lady at the front desk refused and we had to check out very early in the morning.
