Apart'hotel Citadines Les Halles
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We got a 1 bedroom apartment facing the courtyard inside. The location was very good, however, there was no access for taxi's or ubers due to an ongoing construction. Forget about calling an uber to the hotel but the reception did help call a taxi 2 times. However, this apart hotel does not offer much more than location. The lift wasn't working one day and another day there was no hot water for the entire day. Also, if self serve housekeeping on a holiday is not your thing, stay away, however I cant fault the hotel for this since it was clearly mentioned at the time of booking. I just didn't imagine how bad it would feel until we experienced it. The in-house self service laundromat is really helpful though,especially if you have packed light and paris is in the middle of your itinerary, the good sized washers and dryers can take a solid load and get your clothes cleaned up for the rest of your trip for EUR 9. Also, they do hold some loud parties in their central courtyard, expect loud music which is great for sometime but the parties can continue late into the night and can be an inconvenience if you have young kids.Staff is not very warm, however they are also not impolite. Anyway, there isn't much interaction with the staff as much is self serve. Summary, choose the hotel 1) if location is all that matters to you.Look elsewhere if 1) You dont like dimly lit hotels2) you dont like slightly dated hotels3) you like hotel rooms to be serviced daily4) you would like to have basic amenities like water, tea bags etc in your hotel roomPS- the shop below the hotel for basic amenities is very convenient but will recommend to buy water at a larger supermarket. We realized after leaving paris that a crate of 6 bottles at a supermarket costs about EUR 3-4 and the shop below sold to us for EUR 2 per bottle. That's the price for convenience though.
The hotel is more self-served than most hotels, so you pay extra for cleaning, you can cook, and you can get more towels and sheets. For me, I like the feeling of living in a space and the lifestyle suited the location. The location was center to many affordable food choices and transportation. I would suggest it is a place for younger people because most of the neighborhood is young and can become loud. I wouldn't mind staying there again.
We got a feel of how cold the service will be when we entered this property. No greetings but a curt "ask your son not to touch the glass doors" (which he didn't) from one of the staff behind the reception counter. I hoped it was one off. But there were no greetings from behind the desk during our entire stay. It only got worse - cramped room, creaky bed, curtains which do not close fully, very mild aircon even in soaring temperature, poorly performing lifts (one was down for a couple of days and on one day both the lifts were down) and on the day we were to check out, no hot water early in the morning. We were in no mood to complain to the front desk given the reception we had. No daily cleaning of the rooms or turning down beds - which we were told that it's only once in 6 days or pay €28 if you want them to clean.The only thing that is good about this property is the location. You can walk to quite a few attractions and there are a lot of food options around this place.If you are struggling to decide between a proper hotel and this serviced accommodation, my suggestion would be to go for a hotel - having stayed here. Certainly not worth the money you pay.This is certainly not what Citadines stands for in Asia. Truly forgettable experience.
The customer service was terrific. The staff was very friendly and eager to help answer any and all questions. The room was very nice and had a wonderful view. We were close to major sites like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Louvre.
We checked in on a Friday around 2 pm. This hotel is all about the location - right next to Les Halles in the heart of neighborhood 1. It is one block away from the Metro station, mall, and close to all the major sites in Paris. The room we had was a good size, kitchen was equipped with plates, cups, silverware, etc., and we had a view of the square with the fountain. Now to the draw backs:- We had requested a room with twin beds away from the elevators. The only room they had for us was a room by the elevator lobby on the 6th floor and it was very noisy. This made it difficult to get to sleep at night due to everyone using their outside voices in the elevator lobby. The beds weren't that comfortable.- We were told that the rooms are cleaned on check out and on the weekends. We noticed that the floor had not been swept. - When we were in Paris it was hot, 25 - 30 C, and the air conditioning was not working properly. We mentioned this to the front desk 3 times. It finally worked however, we had to leave the curtain open to heat up the room for it to cool the room with not much air flow out of the vent.- Finally we were rudely awakened every morning with a pre-programmed wake-up call at 3:30 am. We told the front desk to remove it from the system. We were told that they were unable to do this for the 3 nights we stayed in the room. Overall, we do not recommend the Citadines Les Halles Paris.
