We have stayed at this aparthotel for different periods since June 2015; 2 weeks in June & Oct 2015 respectively, 5 days in June 2016 and lastly 3 days in May 2017. You would wonder why we stayed at this hotel if it was so bad - well firstly, because it was very close (2 mins) walk to my husband's place of work and secondly, because it started with being bearable but over the years has worsened massively;Location-wise, if you have business or things to do around Charenton-Le-Pont, it is quite ideally situated. You have small grocery shops around and a medium sized supermarket a bit further down. You also have a slew of restaurants, bistros and brasseries. Apart from this, it is ideally located between two metro stations, so it is really as you like. Plus you also have the tramway and whole range of buses that keep it well connected. Now, if you need to travel to Paris area (Eiffel tower, la defense, gare du nord etc), this is a really long way away - easily around 45 mins to 1.30 hrs depending on the places you are going. The worse part is you do not get the nice metros around here so this can be very depressing.Coming to the hotel itself, its quite a small and functional hotel - you have a tiny lounge when you enter next to the reception. We have stayed in different kinds of rooms each time - we started with the basic studio facing the garden; then a studio facing the highway, thirdly an apartment facing the highway and lastly an upgraded studio facing highway again. Out of all of them, if you have to stay at this hotel, I would definitely recommend the apartment because it has obviously more space but the furnishings seem better too. I would not recommend the upgraded studio at all (which you pay extra for) - its even tinier than the normal studio and an absolute nightmare to stay in. We stayed 3 nights and could not way to get out, we were so depressed by it. The kitchen is so small, just next to the bed literally - that you really cannot use it properly. Its a bare bone room with very sad curtains and room colour. Frankly, this place is really outdated. To make matters worse, the room next to us had a baby and we could hear him crying all night. So isolation is not great either. Also, I would not recommend this hotel in summer cause there is no air-conditioning and the fan does not really work; you have to open the rather small windows and there it gets worse - you have 24/7 traffic on the highway, sirens at all times of the day and you cannot really sleep at night. Between the tiny room, the heat and noise - you are done!Beyond this, the people at the reception are not really professional or nice either. To be fair, in the beginning (2015) it was alright. But if you need the iron or stuff, they give you rudely and then really harass you back for it. We are gold card holders of the ACCOR group and as such entitled to late check-out, although we do understand its as per availability. After much struggle, we managed to get a 1 hour one delay but the amount they harassed us with it. They kept calling each twenty minutes and were so rude. I could not believe this is the way they treated their clients; I almost got into an argument with them. They gave the impression of being ready to throw us out.We tried the breakfast experience one and it was OK. But really, its not a great selection and for the price you pay, you are much better off going to the bakery next door and having your breakfast in your tiny tiny room.I am personally so done with this hotel that am never ever going back again. It is a blot on the adagio brand of hotels!!!
Visited Paris on a Family trip during which we stayed at this hotel. Pros:Near to metro station, 2 mins Walk. Kitchenette available. Friendly and supportive receptionists.Restaurants, supermarkets and ATM nearby. Cons :The electricity was tripping off when using both the stoves in the kitchen. Probably was unable to handle the load. Need to be fixed. Housekeeping was not done daily.Bit far from city center. Nice and safe place for families Overall, there was no bad experience here.
good location (metro line 8 10min walk from hotel)Bercy2 Mall (15 min walk)apartments are pretty used upparking fee 15 Euro/night in garageclose access to peripherique (2min from Porte de Charenton)
Ok for a last minute trip but I have stayed in other aparthotels that are a thousand times more pleasant than this. We were offered 2 rooms a double overlooking the motorway or a twin overlooking the courtyard. The double smelled like old food and was in desparate need of a make over. The twin was a little better. Very basic amenities...but we weren't there very long throughout the day so it wasn't too bad. The rooms are quiet and the staff are helpful (i wouldn't say overly friendly but not rude). Overall i think the hotel needs a makeover and a good cleaning out. I would say it was a 2 star at an absolute push. Breakfast was OK but you basically get told off if you don't use a tray in case the staff have to wipe the tables down. Ok for location as subway about 10 minute walk away. Would not be my top choice to stay again.
We saved a ton of money by staying here. We used the kitchenette to prepare our breakfast and picnic lunches. The room was small, but very clean and well equipped. Metro and restaurants plus a grocery and bake shop was very close.The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The WIFI was excellent - we had zero issues in 7 days.We would definitely return.
