is the most horrible experience
How the 3-Star is a freaking lie.

Review: This is my horrible experience that I want to document and put on the web in hopes of others using their search engine will find this page! I booked through Expedia travel service itenerary number 15041572772 for 6 nights in Paris for the Hotel Novanox. Unfortunately, Hotel Novanox didn't have a room for me for the first two nights, and send me over to Hotel De l'Orchidee, which was absolutely horrible. I hold Novanox partially responsible for this horrrible experience. The service was rude, the interior was cheap and aweful. Much worse than Novanox. The front desk told us when we checked in that breakfast was included, and they tried to charge us for the breakfast when we left the hotel, and while we apologized, they actually yelledat us. Absolutely horrible experience.
AVOID at all costs. This picture on the right is a huge LIE.
When you get there you will realize how cheap this place is.
A small independent hotel, the 40 room L'Orchidee is located in the Montparnasse district. Pernety Metro station is very close by, giving easy access to the main tourist attractions. But don't be lured by the pretty pictures that they have on the web. The hotel has a bar with its lousy lounge, a tiny tiny garden, bar that's staffed by very rude bartenders. Don't be lured.
The 3 star rating is about as one-star experience as you can get.
