Not so bad after all

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 24, 2013

This hotel has a dreadful reputation, and the only reason I booked it was that I needed a place to sleep for three nights, starting the next day, and this was one of only two hotels in my price range that were still available on booking.com.

Since I arrived with very low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was clean, the sheets were clean, the shower worked and there was no mold or scum anywhere to be seen. Okay, the room was quite basic, but it did have en suite facilities and the price of 56 Euros per night was acceptable.

This did not include breakfast, but there were several cafés in the neighborhood that offered a French breakfast for € 4.50, including a nice one downstairs in the same building.

The website said the hotel did not offer any internet connection, but when I got there it turned out they had WiFi for an extra 3 Euros for one night, 5 for two nights or 7 for three nights. I took this and it worked fine.

The full name of the hotel is now “Hipotel Paris Belleville Gare de l'Est”, but the sign on the door still says “Hôtel Vicq d’Azir”. It is in fact not far from the Gare de l’Est (East Station) -- an easy quarter-hour walk.

Second photo: I assume that this street, rue Vicq d’Azir, was named after the French physician and anatomist Félix Vicq d'Azyr (1746-1794), even though he spelled his name with a y and not with an i.

Third photo: My room was basic but clean, quiet and perfectly adequate for my needs. The view from the window was of the job center across the street, but for this price you can’t expect a view of the Eiffel Tower, can you?

Fourth and fifth photos: People cycling nearby.
