This hotel is great value for money. It is close to cafés, restaurants, underground stations or for a stroll into central, Paris. The rooms are large enough, the bed comfortable and the breakfast quite good. All of the staff are always friendly and helpful. Our only problem occurred with the shuttle bus they seed to transport us to the airport.... More

I chose this hotel because of its location and walked everywhere except when we went to Notre-Dame. We rented a family room which was extremely quiet and larger than I imagined it would be. The bathroom was also quite large and well appointed with a hairdryer and mirror. The room had air con, was clean, comfortable with a large flat... More

Small hotel, with quite small rooms. However, rooms are clean, quiet and nice (even though not luxurious). Very helpful and kind personnel. The location is great as it is located in a small dead-end street with no street noise (a real luxury in downtown Paris). Very close to Montmartre and Pigalle, without the hustle and bustle. Easy access to a... More

This was a nice hotel. It was clean and bathrooms were spacious. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. We needed to take the metro to get to many of the tourist attractions which was okay. I would recommend and stay again.

Beautiful hotel near Place du Clichy. Good location, near good restaurants and near a metro station. I recommend you to use the metro service to stay in this hotel, the hotel is far from the famous touristic points, like Eiffel Tower. The Internet wifi service needs to be better, the signal in the room is weak. The beds are good... More

My second stay here and what a blooming find! My company gets a corporate rate well south of EUR 100 per night, including breakfast. Amazing. The superior rooms are newly refurbished. Nice enough. TV, mini bar and wifi. I was on 4th floor. The whole place is spotless. It is very centrally situated on a quiet cul-de-sac (French word I... More
