We stayed here while it was under construction, but you can tell they are really trying to make the hotel more luxurious! We stayed for pretty cheap, and I had a wonderful room with brand new bathrooms and floors. It was also very clean, and a great location from the Eiffel Tower! The staff were also very helpful with recommendations... More

It was perfect for our 5 days in Paris. It's very close to the metro (Charles Micheles is 4 minutes away) and Dupleix at only 10 minutes. The hotel is placed on a quiet street and I found it amazing to wake up in the morning and hear birds chirp. The room was new, clean and although it's a bit... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in Paris. While it is absolutely tiny, it's was perfect for us because we just need a base from which to explore the city. It was quite inexpensive too which was great. The tiny rooms just add to the character of this hotel. We would return in the future.
