We stayed for one night on NYE after our party. The shower was super nice and the beds comfortable. It is a practically placed hotel with no frills. We had a 3 person room and booked a week before for 140€.
When we first arrived at the Hotel Bel Air we discovered our toilet did not flush. After popping along to reception to try and resolve the issue I discovered no one was at the desk - instead the workers were all hanging out in a sort of den situated off the main hall. Nobody seemed interested in fixing the toilet, but eventually one of them was chastised by the others into helping. The same incident occurred less than an hour later - this time the hot water did not work. Again the way in which the hotel dealt with the repair was a bit iffy. The mob treated us as if we were asking for a kidney or one of their daughter's hand in marriage - when really we only wanted a flushing toilet :(.
Perhaps they had preempted the broken toilet! Because when we settled down for the night we realised the bed sheet was plastic like some sort of accessory for an untoilet trained infant.
When we were checking out the man at the reception (a member of the aforementioned mob) was incredibly rude about 1 euro 65 cents in tax we apparently had racked up and left unpaid, a bit like how I'd imagine the mafiosa might treat rent payers within their district. In reality we had attempted to pay tax the previous day, and the mob member had refused to accept our note.
Also you can't see out of your window! There is a shutter and also a weird white frosted glass. We did not have a kettle or anything good in our room either.
I was surprised by the room, nice and lots of space. Airy, clean bathroom was nice, closet space. Staff were friendly and WiFi was fine. Metro was close by. Breakfast was good and you have a kettle in your room too.
Stayed here just one night solo. There's a single bed room on the ground floor with a window. The person behind the counter was quite welcoming and even gave me one of the ice trays from their fringe. The window has an outside privacy glass so no one can see in but you can still get air. Unfortunately, if anyone smoking is passing by you get it in the room. The wifi didn't work very well, which was a disappointment but I was tired anyway to I just didn't both to ask the front desk if there was a problem with it. The bed was comfortable but the toilet was in a tight spot. The room was somewhat small but that's typical. Location is really good as you can the 29 or 64 bus into the center. Not a bad place to stay. It worked for me.
At first i could not believe the price for a 3 stars hotel in Paris... 45 Euros, on a online booking website. Room is small (usual in Paris) but very clean, people very welcoming and nice. Well located on Subway line 1, close to Gare de Lyon. Will definitly come back there.
