    « Not quite up to Best Western standards »

    We spent 4 nights at this hotel, although it was close to main streets and the metro, the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. The front desk staff are not much help, they got reservations mixed up and even with a French speaking friend in our party, communications with them was less than desirable. I asked for a wake up call and never received it, I needed it because we had early airport tickets and had to be on time. The room itself was okay, quiet and clean. I would not stay there again though.

    « Extremely Small Rooms »

    Dreadful neighborhood. Travel agent said it was close to Musee d'Orsay. NOT. Rooms microscopic. Toilet uncomfortably close. But bath area - sink and shower - good. Metro close. Elevator so small! Sorry, found it most unpleasant.

    « A place you could never get bored! »

    The hotel looked just like the photos I was extremely impressed with the design of it, it was modern and felt expensive. The staff were helpful, we asked for an iron and they provided us with one straight away and they didn't even need a deposit. When I read reviews before we left, a lot of people mentioned how small the room is, even though it is quite small, I felt they made use of the space very well. The only downside was there was no where to put the suitcases so that did take up a lot of space. The area of the hotel is perfect, lots of options for restaurants and cafes. We decided not to pay for breakfast at the hotel we preferred eating out for breakfast to explore, and I don't regret that decision. Theres a metro station local and its super cheap to get to local attractions such as the Eiffel Tower; it's around 1.50 euros for a single, and you use that single until you get off, I think the Eiffel tower was roughly the 7th or 8th stop and it only cost that price. We also got the train from the airport (Charles De Gaulle) and this was 10.60 euros each and took around 30-40 mins. Overall I think its great value for money! However, upon arrival; we got to the hotel around 8pm, I had selected to pay now rather than at the property and when we got there they said I then had to pay for the hotel (booked through booking.com). In my head I thought I had already paid so I was extremely annoyed this wasn't the case, it was a good job I took my card with me because I didn't have enough euros on me to cover the cost of the hotel and explore Paris. They could of offered to deal with it in the morning or at least let us settle first, I was extremely disappointed by this as in the situation the man at reception was not helpful, they already had my bank details because they had a pre-authorisation charge on my account so it wasn't like they couldn't get the money for the room, but he wouldn't give us our room key until we paid. The fact there wasnt any storage space in the room for luggage wasn't ideal however I wouldn't not stay at this hotel again because of that. Also, if they hadn't messed up the payment I would easily give them a 5 rating but because of that i'm giving them a 4.

    « good location »

    Good location, easy to take metro directly from Gare du nord to the hotel. many Asian restaurants are around there that you can walk and there is department store just few steps. Next time when i have to stay overnight at Paris, i will stay here again.

    « Birthday celebrations »

    My husband booked this for my surprise birthday present. We spent 3 nights in this hotel and it was great. Hotel was modern and clean and well located. Staff were friendly. Rooms are small but about average for all hotels in Paris. Area is very quiet at night. I loved it and would definately go back.

    « Great location, decent service »

    Traveled in July 2017, we were 2 couples. To start with the pros - 1) Location is superb! You have cafes, malls, RER station, farmer's markets on certain days - all close by. Due to ease of access, we would come in late at night, eat around in cafes, bought fruits from farmer's market. 2) Hassle free check in and check out. 3) Polite, helpful, hospitable staff. 4) Clean rooms with basic amenities. Few cons: 1) Small rooms (some of the smallest atw). 2) Limited breakfast - we never ate - as mentioned ate at cafes closeby. 3) Elevator really small - 2 people fit in at one go with luggage. Overall, a decent hotel - with all basic stuff. Do not expect luxury though :)

    « Great location, poor cleanness and expensive breakfast. »

    The hotel is located five minutes from the metro place d'italie, which is excellent. I came just after 8pm, reception was ok, polite but not warm. The room's first impression was good but when I opened the toilet door I saw that the toilet was used, with old pee in it, as well as on the floor making me feeling slightly disgusted. I was massively tired and didn't complain which was a mistake thinking back. Next morning, I was late for my conference so I decided to have breakfast at the hotel. Another big mistake. I payed 12€ for hard croissants, frozen cheese and butter and watery coffee. Sorry guys but you do need to improve a lot.

    « Newly renovated in very good & safe location »

    At first, I booked thia hotel due to its price and location...The room I saw i website is a bit dated.. when I arrived, I was surprised by the newly renovated room in very good condition. You can see my picture... Location is good..in the middle of Place D' italie where you can access eveywhere in Paris by metro/bus. I woll stay in this hotel again!

    « Good location smart small rooms »

    The location of this hotel was perfect for where we wanted to be. If you go to Paris expecting large rooms for a tourist level hotel you are going to be disappointed. The rooms here are small, but very well set out, comfortable,modern , and clean tidy . They have air-conditioning and windows that open, so were light and airy. there is a fridge and kettle in the rooms and plenty of hanging space. The bathroom is good and the shower is excellent. I liked the area, just a short walk into China town and to the river. Plenty to see and do and right next to the Metro.. there is also a shopping centre just over the road. The only problem we had is that we struggled to connect to the wifi on the 4th floor, although my friends across the hall didn't have any issues. Would definitely stay here again, good price, good location and comfortable bed!!!

    « Adequate accommodation »

    the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean. That's the positive. Rooms are small. There is no soundproofing so you can hear your neighbouring room. The bath tapware was faulty. No English speaking/subtitles TV channels.

    « Small stuffy rooms, located in the middle of the city »

    I stayed at this hotel for a week. I stayed in the corner room so apparently it was big but i learnt to breathe in the room after 2 days of my stay. Pros - location big advantage - staff courteous and helpful - room with balcony view get good light. - breakfast spread average but better than some other business hotels - lifts available Negatives - no room service - extremely small rooms - wifi is free but extremely patchy - no other facilities in hotel.

    « Tiny rooms »

    A small hotel with very tiny and stuffy rooms. The reception service was good and always helpful hut the overall experience was claustrophobic. There are better options in the vicinity at the same price level. Didnt take the breakfast option so i cant comment on that.

    « A good place for a base »

    The hotel is small but very near a Metro station. Room and bathroom were modern and clean though smaller than you'd get out of town - hey, this is Paris centre. Dining room only does a very nice continental breakfast. I think the receptionist can serve drinks. Happy to stay again.

    « Hotel de Weha est jolie »

    The Hotel is situated near Place d"Italie and has good travel connections to all places of touristic interest in Paris.I like that there is a bus to the Gare de Lyon.The Hotel is clean and there is a friendly atmosphere.It is a pleasure to be a guest in the hotel and I think that you get value for your money

    « Charged for more nights than stayed and still not refunded after almost 2 months »

    I travel a lot for both work and pleasure (more than half the year on average for the past 4 years) and have seen a fairly wide spectrum of hotels out there. In Paris, you pay for the location and then the service. That being said, when an establishment claims to be a hotel, then they should at least offer clean and quiet rooms. First room I got was right next to the ventilation unit on top floor. Complained about loud noise and got a promise that they would check it out and get back to me right away. No callback for more than half an hour. Second phone call got me another room on a lower floor. This was at 2 in the morning. Shower with clogged drain which remained so throughout the stay even though I complained. Overall, hotel is falling apart, but I was out all day so didn't really care. I could go on but you get the general picture. This is a property which continues to get guests due to its proximity right next to Place d'Italie (same reason why I chose it). Finally, the most outrageous part was that I was charged for 3 nights when I only stayed for 2. I only found out when I got my credit card bill. Contacted Best Western and they have been utterly useless so far. Hotel claims they do not have record of me staying there while customer service gives me the same answer written in their script: " You're important to us, blah blah, blah..." while they bounce back and forth between me and the hotel. It's been almost 2 months since my stay and still no progress. I wanted to wait for a resolution before I submitted my review but enough is enough! AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COST.

    « Well placed hotel with good staff »

    Our second stay at this hotel. Hotel is well placed in a quiet, decent arrondisement (13th) Staff are, helpful, friendly and efficient. Close to Place D'Italie metro we could easily be in central Paris in 10 minutes. Plenty of decent restaurants nearby or McDonalds/KFC if that's what you like. Clean and quiet, although some noise from the road in rush hour.

    « Basic hotel in Chinatown »

    If I were visiting Paris to see the sights and experience this marvelous city, I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel. Of course, it comes down to price, but you do need to realize that you'd either need to walk or take the subway to get to the city center and "where you want to be". I stayed at this hotel for one night, and needed to be in the area for work appointments. It's the "Chinatown" of Paris, so Asian restaurants abound. That's probably not the main reason people travel to Paris. Sure, there's a shopping center nearby, but it's like any other mall around the world. The hotel is minutes from the Place de Italie metro stop, the reception desk staff were helpful and kind, but the room was a bit sub-par. Yes, I'm sure it meets Best Western's standard requirements, but the bed was very low to the ground and the furniture was very dated. The hallway was surprisingly narrow; the other rooms across the hall seemed so close. As common in France, the toilet was separate from the shower/sink. Unless you really need to be in this part of Paris, or your budget requires it, I'd probably spend a bit more to get accommodation closer to the historic part of the city.

    « In the very center of the city but disappointing for a 3 stars hotel »

    you are in the center of the city of bourg en Bresse but : - when your are 2 couples be aware that adjoining rooms can be the second room of a suite ok as children room but not for 2 adults - the lift does not arrive to the floor of your room and there not enough staff to you with your luggage

    « Few days in Paris »

    Following the cancellation of our main holiday due to illness we decided to spend a few days in Paris. The Hotel De Weha is ideally placed for the Place d'Italie metro station and the large shopping centre, Italie Deux. However if you enjoy walking then you have about 1 mile to get to the nearest attraction, Jardin du Plantes. From here though you can take the Batobus to all the main sites. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel most welcome. If you have a room facing the street and prefer the windows open it can be a little noisy last thing at night and first thing in the morning. This area of Paris was new to us but we wouldn't hesitate staying again. Good bar, La Place, across the road.

    « bad hotel »

    poor value of money spent, the rooms very not clean, the toilets also were serviced, the drain water kept coming up and spilling the toilet floors, breakfast was very bad and low on service, over all a very terrible experience ! will not ever want to visit the hotel or recommend to anyone to stay here.
