I wanted to visit Paris on a budget and was pleased to find the F1 hotel online. Booking was made very easy and confirmation of it came through straight away on my phone. I was not sure what to expect but even though I stayed for only a few nights it was much better than I expected. The room was situated in a quiet part of the building with shower facilities just down the hallway. There are also food and drink machines on every floor which seem to be kept full. I paid £35 per night, but would have paid about £49 on the day. I arrived Sunday and by the time I returned from sightseeing on Monday evening, the room had been cleaned. It was nice to stay at a hotel where I didn't feel I was being ripped off. There are no towels or soap provided but the towels can be ordered for a small fee. The TV in the room was easy to operate. It only had the French channels but I wasn't there for that anyway, so didn't mind.
