This is not a hotel that I would recommend to anyone aside from people in their 20s or early to mid 30s, for the hotel has a style that caters to the mentally and physically young. The bright colors and low, japanese futon style beds are fun and great for people in this age demographic, but I imagine most older... More

We stayed here for one night and booked very last minute on a Saturday as we wanted to extend our stay in Paris. The price is decent for hotels in Paris and this one is very clean, we had breakfast included and the staff were very friendly. It is a cross between a hostel and a budget hotel. But doesn't...

We know and love the Hi Hotel in Nice... Of course the place could not be as large since we are in Paris but still the room was minuscule for the luggage and we had to take off our shoes to walk to the other side of the room since we had to walk on the bed. The concept is... More

Three of us (female friends) booked this not knowing what to expect. It is so cute! A really lovely place in a lively area, which is great value for money for location. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

Hotel location is great, close to the metro, lots of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants nearby and not an expensive neighbourhood. The whole experience is automated and efficient. Not a traditional style hotel and is in itself an experience, that we found amusing. The rooms are compact and open plan but there is enough room for washing, dressing and sleeping. I... More

Too small in every regard. I felt clasteophobic in every part of the hotel. Room is so tiny it's almost funny. Had to walk across the bed to get to the bathroom, which is no more than a shower stall smacked in the corner of this tinny room. Basically, a human doesn't fit. And I'm not a 200 pound American!

I read some negative reviews about this hotel which had me thinking whether I had made the right choice by choosing to stay here. Yes I did choose well. It's a great place to base yourself for a short break in Paris, the location is ideal, with a Metro stop a short walk away, and lots of interesting cafes and... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights. This is the worst place I have stayed in , in whole life. Bed is 5' away from toilet and shower. You can not use the sink if you open shower or toilet door. Bed is on the floor and it is very noisy. And in the elevator only one person with... More

If you want a hotel with a standard design this isn't the place for you! It's quirkily designed for sure as the pictures here demonstrate Now the upside! - Rooms have an MP3 player dock - The free WIFI works like a dream - Breakfast is more than decent - The staff are very kind and helpful - The neighbourhood...

Good location, 5 min from the metro and from a bus that takes you straight to the Louvre and another to Gare du Nord. Lively street with plenty of cafes and bars, most open until 1 am. The hotel staff is helpful and the room very clean. It is indeed a bit cramped but if you spend all day outside... More
