THE MOST HORRIBLE HOTEL EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD IN PARIS!!!
Reviewed 6 months ago

A horrible experience!!! The suite with a bath with hydro massage appeared to look straight at the wall with a very dark light inside the room and cheap motel-like lights, which created a feeling of being in a cellar with an old furniture, no space to open the wardrobe and walk freely, NO air-conditioning, NO outer light, which started making me claustrophobic, and a mini-bar shining in your face when you sleep, overall giving absolutely NO reason to having paid 285€/night for this room!!! During the reservation we asked for it to have a convertible bed for a 3rd person in a room, but when we arrived I was shown leather sofa blocks which had a broken mechanism, so it couldn’t be made as a sleeping place (and actually even with a working mechanism it would never count as a proper place to sleep) and the receptionist girl didn’t know anything about how to prepare it!! Finally, she called for her colleague who spoke only French, which I fortunately understand, and he said that the mechanism is broken, so, firstly, I was offered to sleep on a mat on the floor!! However, having declined this option, I fortunately was offered to sleep in a room in front (which though didn’t have Wi-Fi), but the only thing they managed to offer instead of this wine cellar was a tiny standard room with a tiny window but without ANY features of the suite that we have paid for. Oh, and it was the next day, because our first night they said they’re “complet” and can’t do anything!! Finally, we sticked with this horrible dark room, where by the way it shakes you and wakes you up with the noises of working engines and from the corridor... Stuff here is very incompetent, especially the receptionist girl, who is saying “We are complete” for any request and unwilling to do anything to conform with the title “VIP hotel”, especially in terms of the attitude to the client. Location is horrible, there’s absolutely nothing to do here, the price is unimaginably high for such a level of service and amenities, and I would say it’s a rather 2-star hotel, definitely not a 4-star one!! By NO WAY!! If only we hadn’t paid the full price for 3 nights at the beginning, I would definitely cancel on it and try finding literally anything else, because ANY other place would be a better place to stay in Paris. Especially, for this money!! That’s by far THE most horrible experience I’ve ever had in Paris!! Save your trip and don’t come here!! I have my last night here, and I can’t wait to get out of it!!

No cruise, no meal, no romance
Reviewed 8 months ago

My entire day was ruined yesterday.
I checked in and paid on arrival as your receptionist asked me to. I wish I had not.

I booked this stay as I saw on your website that there is a cruise and dinner. I asked the receptionist when shown our room what time dinner was and she informed me there was no dinner and no cruise. I said I wanted to cancel my stay as the only reason I booked was for the romantic cruise, dinner and sleep on the Seine. My special day with my wife has been ruined.

It is completely my fault As I did not see cruises were only week-ends but your staff handled it terribly and just dismissed any mention of my refund of €245 for a bed, toilet and shower. No Meal, no bar, no cruise.
I was forced to leave and find other accommodation at a cost of €177. (why would I stay on an empty boat on the dock)

So my experience of Le VIP Paris is a loss of €422 and no special night for my wife that I had planned.

Terrible attitude by the manager. Completely let down by your company.

You only get one star as I have to click to submit. It should be NO STARS.

Great but expensive dinner and terrible night
Reviewed 1 year ago

Booking:
My girlfriend offered me a dinner and night on the VIP Paris yacht. We were supposed to have dinner in the end of July but my girlfriend got really sick and we had to postpone it. That meant we had to pay a fee of 100 euros!! We took the next available date which was in October. When we arrived at the reception on the boat, we also had to leave a 100 euro deposit for the room. And the breakfast costs 17 euros per person!! The guy at the reception was kind enough to offer us the breakfast because of the 100 euros extra fee we already had to pay.

Location:
The boat is located near Gare de Lyon but I wouldn't say it was easy to find. We spent at least half an hour looking for the boat and don't expect them to answer your calls if don't find the boat.

Dinner:
The dinner was really great! I definitely enjoyed the food and the singer during the dinner cruise. The view from our table was great and I truly had a wonderful evening with my girlfriend. The only negative point of the dinner was the price. Expect to pay at least 17 euros for a glass of Champagne and not under 20 euros for a half bottle of red wine.

Night:
The night on the boat was terrible. The boat was staying next to a nightclub-boat. I didn't get much sleep because of the music and the pounding basses.

Breakfast:
Because of the price (17 euros/person) I was expecting a truly amazing breakfast. I was really disappointed. You get some coffee and pain au chocolat but don't expect much more! I also noted the complete lack of personnel during the breakfast.

I will recommend the VIP Paris but only the dinner. It was really memorable and really enjoyed view of Paris by night accompanied by the great performance from the singer.

Another way to experience Paris by night
Reviewed 2 years ago

What better way to visit Paris with a loved one than by boat at night... You get to see all the major sights along the Seine, get a wonderful and delicious meal and get to spend a night on board a yacht. Doesn't get any more romantic than that.
The staff is very helpful and friendly and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasurable as can be.
