How to Get There
This is a cute little hotel in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. The staff was wonderful; they were friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the fashion theme as it was different from other hotels. They have a room to keep your luggage if you arrive before your room is ready. There was a young man at the front desk a couple of the days we were there who was extremely helpful with getting me my tickets for Versailles as I was having some trouble with the computer. I didn't get his name, but he went above and beyond to help me. There was one housekeeper who seemed annoyed that we were still there when she came to clean the room one day, and she asked me something in French that I didn't understand, but I just needed her to slow down. I asked her to slow down, but she assumed I didn't really know any French or only the basics. I was just about to tell her we were leaving in ten minutes, but I didn't get the chance. I will continue to work on my French so I understand better when I go back. The hotel is close to two metro stations on Metro 6 (and also Metro 7 at Place d'Italie). The Italie Deux shopping center is close by. There is an HSCB Bank in Place d'Italie, and not too far from the circle is a Franprix grocery store. There is an open air market two days a week (I think) that is just outside the hotel. It is not far from the Butte aux Cailles neighborhood, and there are a few restaurants and cafes nearby. We had some trouble figuring out the automatic dimmer for the light, but it makes for a funny story. My girls and I also enjoyed breakfast very much. I think the hotel could probably use a little updating and I might have liked the pillows to be a little fluffier, but overall it was nice. I appreciated everyone there very much, and I liked the neighborhood and would absolutely stay there again. We also felt very secure there.
I stayed one night and I booked on the Accor website as a Accor Club memeber. The booking was prepaid as it was at a rate that was only available if pre-paid. On checking out I was told that they had not received confirmation that I had paid. I showed my booking confirmation and pointed out that if I hadn't made a valid pre-payment the booking would not have been confirmed. However, I was asked to open my banking app to show that I had made the payment and the Receptionist took a mobile photo of the screen of my phone. I found all this frustrating and unnecessary, especially as I have been an Accor Club member for many years and this has never happened before. I am awaiting a response from Accor/Mercure.
Hotel Mercure Place d'Italie wasn't the 1st Mercure we've stayed in & did not disappoint. The location is convenient to local amenities: restaurants, cocktail bars, Jardine des Plantes, as well as Metro /RER to Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Jardine du Luxembourg etc. The comfy bed, couch, fridge & tea-making facilities were welcome after a day's sightseeing.
