Decent hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 10, 2003

Room was small but not bad, looked out over the Hotel Chateuabriand.
On a quiet quaint street just around the corner from the Arc de Triomphe so its a very good location.

Very small tub with hand sprayer to take a shower with (which is common in Paris) .
The front desk closes at night so if you go out late, you have to end up waking up the on duty manager to get back in, which seemed to irritate them a little.

All in all it was a decent place and a good value for the great location.

Unique Quality: 3 star hotel
no pool
no real view

On the 7th of August in the morning, Me and my friend went to Paris for a holiday and started to stay at Hôtel Mayflower (3 , rue Chateaubriand , 75008 Paris )
The day before out holiday finishes (10.08.2013) in the morning we left the Hotel as usual for our touristic tour and left the keys to the reception.(Leaving the key was their request for our SAFETY(!)) Around 7pm, We turned back to the Hotel for having a shower and relax before the dinner. The receptionist asked if it’s our first return to The Hotel after we left in the morning. And yes, We declare that We left the Hotel in the morning and We turned back just now. (Actually She needs to know that instead of asking because She keeps our keys so there is no way for us to enter the room without getting the keys from her).As soon as we said that, She told us to go up to our room and see if something missing there. She gave us a replacement key because, She couldn’t find our original room key.
We went into the room in hurry and We saw that non of our electronic items are there. Somebody has stolen our professional camera, i-pad and some of my jewelry which were locked in our suitcases.
We turned back to the reception and asked to receptionist about this shameless theft. She told us that She is sure that She saw some suspicious people going up to the rooms but She was so busy at that time and She just couldn’t avoid them. She also didn’t see them while they were leaving the Hotel. (Which is nonsense for me) When She realized that one of the room key is not in reception desk instead of calling the police She waited till we come and asked if We turned back to the Hotel and took the key without asking her during the day.. You will agree that if you were to believe this person, this was an “impossible theft” as the thief would have to be invisible to pass in front of her and anyone else undetected. . And when We asked for Hotel Manager, He even didn’t come to The Hotel. All He did was presenting his apologies on the phone and for me it’s a shame for customer relations.
They told us that there is no camera in Hotel and We have no choice but go to the police.We went to the police and They prepared the paper works. Receptionist lady also came with us and told what she knows to the police.(Even if it was all French which We are not able to understand) Nobody was able to speak in fluent English to help and translate what is going on.
They told us that, They will declare everything to their insurance company and We just need to wait for the result. Till now I have no answers and most importantly no reimbursement. I sent them the invoices and all necessary documents and now I am waiting for the response.
If you do not want to be involved in a nightmare situation like this one do not stay at this hotel which so poorly managed this situation. The only thing we can really do it to prevent this from happening to any aware travelers, is to share this unfortunate episode as broadly as possible (social networks, tourism websites, etc). Please, be aware. Holidays should not be like this when you also spend a lot of money for these Hotels..
And I will never forget & understand those people who acts like stealing goods of a customer by entering the locked hotel room in Paris(just on one parallel street of Champs Elysses) as a quite normal situation.
I will consider sharing the police report to anyone who needs proofs.
I will let everyone know if the result will be positive for me at the end through the medium of this account.
