Le Mediterraneen Hotel Paris Reviews
Hotel Le Mediterraneen - Cheap hotel with very basic facilities Aug 16, 2011
Hotel Le Mediterraneen is located quite near to one of the major Train stations of Paris - Gare de Lyon in the Bastille area. A direct trip on the RER line can help you in going to the Eurostar at Gare du Nord. It is located in the centre of Paris, a 10-minute walk from Place de la Bastille and just 200 metres from the Gare de Lyon.
It is well served by the public transportation. By the RER you can travel directly to Opera, Etoile (Arc de Triomphe) and Disneyland Paris in only a couple of minutes.
Rooms are INCREDIBLY noisy as if walls are made of papers. Not only you can hear people from their rooms but if you have room near the road you will not be able to sleep due to noise in the streets. There is a bar just across the road and my room window opened towards it so I had to use noise cancellation headset to sleep!! Also, noise from the corridors made by other guests is clearly audible and will make sure that you will keep your eyes opened till late night.
There is NO LIFT. If you are coming with luggages make sure that you are in good shape to exercise and carry luggages by narrow stairs. Though I had a small bathroom for taking shower but toilet was shared and out of room. You might have to wait to use it as it seems that there is only one toilet per floor.
Though my room was bit small, clean with lots of light but it had a horrible smell (despite of having two big windows which opened towards streets) and I used my deodorant as air-freshener to survive one night because there was no other room available in hotel and unfortunately I could not change hotel as it was already late night when I arrived in Paris.
So, will I go there again? = No! I will try to find better options.
Will I recommend it to anyone else? = Depends! If
a. you just need to spend one night
b. you have a deodorant/air-freshener to get rid of smell.
c. you are carrying light luggage otherwise you should be able to carry luggages through stairs.
d. you can control your bowl movements as there is shared WC.
e. you want to live quite near to a major train station
Hotel provides FREE WiFi connection but you can hardly use it in your room as the connection is very weak and hotel staff generally recommends to access internet in lobby where it is pretty fast. Staff was very helpful and nice but does not speak English, I was able to manage with my broken french though.
