Mercure Paris Place d Italie
- What's Included
We spent a long weekend City Break (train and hotel) booked hastily through Lastminute.com. The Hotel Mercure Place d'Italie was a comfortable hotel and on the whole our stay was pleasant. Lastminute.com described it as a hotel "in the heart of Paris" with "rooms with views over the Pantheon and Eiffel Tower" but they are incorrect, obviously confusing it with Hotel Mercure Paris Tour Eiffel. The Place d'Italie is 8 Metro stations from Notre Dame and 11 stations from the Eiffel Tower. Our reception was very warm and friendly, the room overlooked the busy street. Market stalls appear overnight on the pavement outside (it was a fish market on Sunday morning!) but the double (triple?) glazing cut out most of the nocturnal noise so it didn't bother us. There is a kettle with hot drinks available, but oh, what a nasty surprise, one of the two paper cups, on lifting the lid, contained a drink which must have been there for at least a week. There was a huge head of mould on the top which smelled horrible. I took the evidence down to reception. To their credit the manager was suitably horrified and embarrassed, offered to change the room - which we declined, having settled in - and offered us free drinks at the bar - which we never had time to take up - but never mind, when we came to check out we were not charged for our two breakfasts. The breakfasts were delicious. The hotel does not have a restaurant but on advice from the manager we enjoyed a lovely meal a few yards down the road at La Butte aux Piafs which is a reasonably priced, typically French cafe restaurant. One other problem we had: on returning to the hotel for our second night the magnetic keys to our room wouldn't work. After spending 5 minutes fumbling with both keys we took them down to reception where they were reset. So mixed feelings about this place.
The location is excellent - very close to metro stops. The room is tiny, dark but clean. We were at the 2nd floor close to the stairs. We could hear people going ups and downs on the stairs, especially at night time. I think the hotel rated as 4 stars is a little misleading. It should be more like 3 stars or less.
I initially booked 2 nights but was not really impressed with the quality of the room. Compared to other Mercure properties, I felt that this was a little bit dated and it was not my most favorite part of town. I had a coworker staying in near the Pantheon and decided to book my second night at their hotel.
i stayed on this hotel for 2 nights late last Januaryevery thing was very good except the room locationit was in the first floor on the street where the noise is high at night and at early morningthe reason of this is that i check in a little pit early around 11 amthe guy at reception was very polite and try to help me but he cantthe second thing , while check out they ask me to pay the fees even though my booking was already paidand i inform them i have to pay the city tax only
