Our room was extremely small even for Paris standards. They have a ludicrous key policy that is not safe - you don't get to take your key when leaving the building you have to leave it with the front desk - meaning the hotel knows when you are not in the room at any time and when you ask for your key card back there is no verification done to prove you are on the reservation - anyone can get access to your room if they know the number. Our room was street facing. Normally I'd enjoy or not mind but this had construction going on literally right outside the window starting at 7 am. AC did not function in the month of Nov. Room was sweltering hot and no way to cool down.Even bigger problem since we couldn't open our windows to get draft due to the construction noise.
The positive I will note is that the staff was able to move us to another room with less noise, still no AC but we could open the window this time.
