Needed to wait quite long to get checked in - simply disregarded by reception. Power cut off for 30 minutes - reception said it was a “ monthly exercise” ….

It's a pity when you have to chase for your final bill.... And I got it a few days later when I called the hotel again. No aswers after my e-mails. A stay is finished not when we pay but when you give us the Invoice.

We stayed here for a few days' break from the UK for a family holiday in Paris. I know this is not the obvious choice but we had our reasons for choosing a business hotel in the corporate district- and those paid off. The location is great as it is right on the main metro line, though it does take a while to get to central. The area is a concrete jungle but this was perfect for our child who is obsessed with skating and scooting. It meant he could scoot for ages freely in big open spaces. If you want a charming French neighbourhood, this is not it. It was also very safe, close to business cafes and the nearby Westfield and associated shops. Very urban but also pleasant and friendly with green spaces to walk and relax in. On a hill so got great views across the Seine, the Eiffel and Sacre Coeur in the distance. Walking to the metro or shops gave a great view of the Arc d'Triomphe behind you. The Oxygen complex in the metro had a couple of lovely cafes and restaurants which we enjoyed, and a great little trattoria further up- amazing home made desserts and pizzas. The hotel, facilities, room- this hotel is extremely outdated and is not luxury in any way. The furnishings and facilities are old, faded, basic and rickety. This did incentivise us to leave the room more! The sofa bed/camp beds were awful, TV super old, towels thin and worn, that sort of thing. It is all in need of major facelift and repair. Some of the staff meant well but said they could not help- but when we escalated concerns, things did get done. I think the staff were the best thing about the place- it is possibly unpleasant and frustrating to work there- I do agree with other reviews that the Greem bar staff were rude for example and took a while to do things- but I don't really blame them. The receptionists were obliging and helpful, particularly Julie (or was it Celine?) who was an absolute delight and went above and beyond to help us with a couple of challenging things- as was the other staff member, a young man who appeared to be at manager level. Thank you very much to both of you for all your help. It made all the difference in the world. The restaurant manager (I didn't get his name) was also super lovely and helpful with our child's needs- they really made our stay enjoyable. Just a shame about the facilities really.

Old Hotel with Rude Staff - Not a Novotel Standard

We stayed there for 3 nights - 29th March till 1st April, 2024. The check-in experience was terrible and a long wait as there were travel company and group who frequent in this hotel. The staff at the reception entertained the travel group first even though I was standing ahead in the que. When enquired, the stuff just asked me if I want to check in or not! After 15 mins of entering the room, the representatives again rang our bell and told that we were allotted wrong room and asked us to move to a different room. Sheer unprofessionalism exist amongst the staffs here. As a accor silver member, in all accor group hotels we get free welcome drinks. In this hotel, they did not provide any at the time of check in. When they requested us to change the room, they provided us with the free drink coupon as a token of 'compensation' and degraded our room! The rooms are smelly, stuffy, very old hotel, no air conditioning (because of winter even though it was hot!). Overall, not a good hotel and we would never stay here again!

Adam W TripAdvisor review

A lot of comments about the hotel, which supposedly has 4 stars. The hotel is old and needs renovation. The staff is not friendly. The staff in the restaurant is terrible. There is no information about the restaurant where breakfast is served for individual guests. There is no hot water for bathing in room 800. Hot water is only for the sink and lukewarm water for the bathtub. After a whole day of sightseeing, I would like to take a bath, but a hotel for over 200 Euros does not have hot water
