This is a belated review since I have only just discovered TripAdvisor! I wish I had known about it before. A trip to Paris is an unforgettable, wonderful experience. A trip to the Hotel Antin Saint Georges is unforgettable for completely different reasons. To summarise; this hotel is dirty, dusty, poorly equipped, dangerous and noisy. The location, albeit, is mediocre. Everything else, however, is simply dreadful.
You may think as we did; "well, we are only going to Paris for a few days. It doesn't matter where we stay - we don't intend on spending much time in our room." Right? Wrong! Every second in this hotel is a dismal one.
Worst of all, perhaps, is the team of staff. They are rude, not slightly interested in helping you and the maid will shout at you at 8:30am and tell you to leave (in a language which was neither French or English).
To provide some specific detail; the corridors were almost pitch black. I tripped over the stairs several times. There is no elevator at the Hotel Antin - there isn't light to guide you up the stairs. The hotel room was approximately the size of my shoe. In this hotel room were blackened, burnt walls, a broken mirror (which had been fixed with gaffa tape) and a broken front door and bathroom door. Nothing makes you feel safer.
The only redeeming quality of this terrible hotel is that it is located directly above one of the main metro lines in Paris. This may appear to be a wonderful thing when you are concerned about getting around. Do not be fooled! The train going past every fifteen mintues is not a Godsend. It is not a convenience. At two, three and four in the morning it is anything but a convenience.
The breakfast did not appear to exist. Seriously...a bowl of cornflakes? Is this the kind of breakfast you would expect? No, I think not.
I am very much looking forward to returning to Paris. But mark my words - I will not be returning to this hotel.
Stay away - it is not worth a euro!
