Not Happy with Villa Alessandra, Paris
Villa Alessandra Hotel Review Apr 2005
Villa Alessandra �Four Star� Hotel
9 Place Boulnois, Paris 75017
Good Points? Nice location in middle of an open-air street market. Great if you need some fruits, raw fish or meat. It�s a 10 minute walk from Etoile (Arch of Triumph). Great restaurants & lots to do within walking distance.
We experienced tiny, noisy, grossly overpriced basement rooms, inedible breakfast, poor maintenance standards. It is hard to mess up scrambled eggs and orange juice. But the eggs seemed to be latex basted with vinegar; the juice was fermented. The public toilet on the main floor was filled with broken furniture and junk. We stayed there first week of April, 2005. I would not recommend it.
To top it off, we had a robbery from the safe in our room. Somebody had a pass key to open it without needing the combination. Even with the advertised 75% discount, this place was no bargain at 97Euros per nite. In the three days we were there, there was never a manager, assistant manager, or anyone else in authority on duty. They advertise 4 stars. That's a joke!
You can fool people or get the best of them once. After that they catch on. What's worse, hell hath no fury like a person conned. We would never again do business with this hotel or the chain either. If people are duped or chiseled and if their reaction is always the same as ours, why would anyone in business follow such a policy? Inept? What other label can be affixed to a management that guarantees the permanent loss of business and customers?
We have written a dozen positive reviews of places; but Villa Alessandra in Paris badly mismanaged.
