Beware Hotel Henry IV on Place Dauphine, Paris

Jump to last reply

Anyone considering a stay at the Henry IV Hotel on the Place Dauphine, Rive Gauche, Paris should be aware of the conditions I encountered there in August, 2013 and be wary of staying there.

As a veteran budget traveler, I expect small rooms, tiny bathroom facilities, walk-up stairwells and uneven floors when staying in a very old hotel, and consider those conditions part of the charm of staying in a historic building. But I draw the line at staying in a hotel that is dirty. Such is the condition of the Henry IV Hotel on Place Dauphine.

After booking months in advance, I was assigned room 20 on the 5th floor. The stairs leading to the room were gritty with the dirt and sand of the plaza, the bannister sticky with grime. The floor of the room was so gritty I had to brush the dirt off my feet before getting into bed. It was obvious that neither had been swept, much less wet mopped for weeks or longer.

The bathroom was so filthy with black dirt on the bottom and walls of the shower, I refused to use it. The toilet had black filth in the bottom where a brush didn't reach. The grout around the broken bathroom tiles was varying shades of grey to black. A mirror had what appeared to be dried vomit splashed on it. The window curtain had holes in it, the window sill was black with dirty grime. In all fairness, at least the sheets were clean. Other than that, it was more flophouse than hotel.

Upon telling the woman behind the desk I was leaving despite her amazing find of a "better" room, she became belligerent and extremely rude, and insisted she was being "nice" for charging me only half of the 2nd nights rate. I left there, got a last minute booking at the Best Western in St. Germaine and was perfectly happy with it and its location.

Hotels that are old and worn can have a certain charm. But there is no reason for any hotel to be dirty, and no need to stay in such a place as the Henry IV on Place Dauphine on the Rive Gauche of Paris. Be advised before going there.
