Excellent value for central Paris
While there were definitely quite a few guests who had some issues with the Gérando, the general feeling was that it was a budget option in a great location. Most guests were very satisfied with the value they received during their stay.
Very friendly and helpful staff
While there were some dissenters, the overwhelming majority of guests describe the staff as very friendly and helpful, with great advice and recommendations. Also mentioned was that they seem to be truly multilingual.
Extremely small rooms
While many guests concede that it was perhaps not reasonable to expect large rooms in this location at the room rate they received, they do still commented that the rooms are extremely tiny - best used for sleeping and bathing.
Lift only accessible after climbing stairs
Several guests pointed out that to reach the lift, which was described as “tiny”, they had to first climb a flight of stairs. While this didn't exactly render it useless for able bodied travellers, those with mobility issues should definitely take it into account.
Avoid the hotel breakfast
Many guests strongly recommend avoiding the hotel's breakfast, which has been described as “a cup of coffee and a croissant”. It is not typically included in the room rate so it is easy to do. Several guests recommend a bakery just across the road as a much better breakfast option.
