Hotel Median Paris Congres Reviews

Affordable hotel just outside of central Paris Apr 14, 2013
We stayed at the Median for the weekend from 8-10 February 2013 as part of a package deal.

POSITIVES: The Median is situated a 5-6 minute walk from the nearest Metro station, and from there it's around 15 minutes to Central Paris. Local shops, patisseries and restaurants (including McDonald's!) are nearby; go to La Reine Des Bles - about 10 minutes away - for absolutely scrumptious cakes and pastries.

The staff at the Median are friendly and helpful, helping us with everything from adjusting the air conditioning (more about that in a moment) to recommending where to find the best places to eat in Paris (see my review of La Luge!). The room was good-sized and clean, with a desk, chair, wall-mounted TV, cabinets and an ample wardrobe; the bed linen had been washed and ironed to within an inch of its life; the bathroom was clean with bright white towels and complimentary toiletries; and the room was given a once-over every day or as requested.

The area surrounding the Median was a construction site (with lots of mud!) when we went and the hotel faces out on to a motorway, but double-glazing ensures minimal noise and from our window we could see both Montmartre and the Eiffel Tower in the distance on either side.

A Welcome folder included amongst other things the room service menu, details of the Median's facilities (including laundry service), emergency procedures, how to make calls, and other important information, which was a really nice and very helpful touch.

NOT-SO-POSITIVES: Although we were mainly occupied with sightseeing, the TV didn't have English subtitles and when we asked we were told that the hotel "didn't have a licence" for it (?). Our room was approaching the need for redecoration; there was no kettle or tea/coffee-making facilities; and the air conditioning was complicated with no instructions - a staff member had to come and fix it for us after we had cooked in the room overnight!

Breakfast was overpriced for what it was - around £12 EACH for a fairly basic selection of cereals, bread, croissants, juice and hot drinks (from a machine). The hotel restaurant where we had breakfast had very odd opening hours - i.e. closed during the week from just after 1pm until around 7pm - and, most astonishingly of all, wasn't open for meals other than breakfast at all at the weekends!

Overall, the Median is a nice place to stay for business travellers and those with a budget who don't want to be too far from the centre of Paris.

Not a good location, kinda lost at all! Jul 25, 2011
### Location ###

This hotel was very outside of the city, barely in the inner city metro zone, so that you dont have to pay for two zones at least. The metro station is a 5-minute walk away and from there it takes a while and probably some transfers to reach your destination. There are rarely coffee's or restaurants around.

The area looks very dirty and you dont feel very comfortable there, especially at night time.

### Room ###

The room wasnt really nice, also not very clean - everything looks old and used. It had a TV and at least a safe.

### Restaurant ###

The restaurant was very nice and had a great interior. The problem is that theres nobody in. A hundret tables and we were the only guests, which was kinda quiet and scary. The waiters could not speak a word in english and as they served us something wrong their boss screamed at them in the kitchen, so that we could hear it.

The food was okay but very expensive. So we only ate there once.

You should think about paying a little more and look for another hotel.
