    My girlfriend and her sister stayed at this hotel the day after Christmas. The rooms were filthy and tiny, and the staff was rude, but this is to be expected for a cheap hotel in Paris. After they went out for a few hours, they came back and found that $3500 USD had been stolen from their room. Out of her 4 credit cards which were available to steal, only my girlfriend's debit card was stolen, and when she checked, $1500 USD had been taken from the account. What is interesting is that this was the card which she had given to the hotel when she made the reservations, along with her personal information. The thief must have known which card to steal which had at least $1000 on it, and they must have had enough personal information to access the account. Furthermore, there were no signs of tampering with the lock. Only someone who had a key and access to the hotel's files could have come in and known to steal this card, which makes it clear that it was one of the hotel staff.

    When my girlfriend presented this problem to the hotel staff, they were extremely unhelpful and rude. The employee at the desk made no effort to accommodate her loss, reimburse her in any way, or even to express concern and apologize for their hotel's lax security. When my girlfriend said that this was all the money she had for the trip, and that without it she could not pay for the hotel, the employee told her and her sister to leave. When she presented the police report and said that she would report them online, he shrugged his shoulders and said "I don't care". Clearly, he didn't care that his staff could be engaged in criminal activities against the guests - assuming he wasn't involved in them himself.

    So, if you want small, dirty rooms attended by nasty, rude staff who may be involved in criminal activities against you, then this is the hotel for you.

    I only decided to go to Paris two days before the trip, so I was just looking for a decent hotel, with a cheap price and a good location towards the centre. I found this hotel, in the 2nd arrondissement, at 5 minutes walking from the Louvre.

    The price was very good, only € 72,- for a room. It was a special offer. And what made it even better was the fact that we had a superior room: just a bit better and more spacious then a normal room. The hotel only has 2 stars, but looking at the room, you would think they have more.

    Unique Quality: +++ Location: close to Palais Royal (4 minutes walking), close to metrostation Bourse, (1 minute) and close to the Louvre (5 minutes).

    - - - Breakfast: the breakfast costed € 6,50 per person and was quite poor according to the price. No warm food, waiting for bread to be added, and no service what so ever. Tip: just find a nice place to eat outside of the hotel, just as expensive and much better.

    Directions: Take metrostation Bourse, and from the square you get out, you can already see the street Rue de la Banque. It a few hundred metres into that street.

Has anyone stayed in this hotel? It says it has some air-conditioned rooms, but I can not figure out how to request one or how much they will cost.
I tried to email them, but their email address failed.
I am starting to get worried about the type of hotel it is.
I would appreciate any help you could give me on this hotel.
I will be going to Paris in May and I am not even sure it I will need air-conditioning.

Thanks so much!

I've stayed in a different, but also central, Timhotel. I found it adequate, but with a small room for the (discounted) price, and generally nothing to write home about.

But in May you really won't need a/c!
