This is a very cheap hotel in a great location! However, there was no air conditioning in the room and I stayed in this hotel in July, when the weather was the hottest in Paris. The hair dryer was not working in our room. Thankfully, the staff allowed me to use the hair dryer in another room for the next... More

My wife an I enjoyed two great nights in Paris, and this hotel was located in a great location, so we could easily walk to the Eifel Tower and restaurants away from the typical tourist traps. The staff was great and very friendly. Being in Paris, the elevator and rooms were very small, but met all of our needs and... More

Nice place to stay during visit to Paris. Very convenient location. Close to Eiffel tower. Rooms are small but clean. The front desk is very helpful. Nice restaurants are walking distance. You can walk to Eiffel tower in 15 mins. Macky is 5 mins walk

We went for a long weekend in Paris and we needed smth close to Roland Garros, so not much availability for a reasonable price. Location is great close to Eiffel Tower, very close to metro - ligne 10 - and in a nice area. Room with 2 beds quite small, but the worst was the amounf of noise during the... More

We didn't expect much as it is a cheaper hotel to stay at in Paris. Good location, close to Eiffel Tower and metro. Small room. Some of the staff were very rude - one guy especially. Also, do not do their breakfast. We were forced to pay a day in advance for breakfast (the guy that was rude said we... More

I was not overwhelmed by this hotel but as its only a 2* i didn't have high expectations. The staff were very friendly and the hotel is in a good location walking distance from the Eiffel tower and only two mins from Charles Michels Metro station. The room was small but tidy. The bed was very much aged and had... More

very good hotel for the cost, great staff, very helpful, close to Metro station and RER, only 2 KMs from Eiffel tower. the only downside is that the room size is very small, definitely not for a family with an infant, also the walls are very thin, so if you have a noisy neighbor, your sleep might be disturbed, unless...

This hotel is in the middle of the city and has access to train (metro) stations. Little hotel but clean and safe. Every time you leave the hotel you had to turn your key in and got it back when you returned. Only a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower. The staff was friendly and helpful, however, spoke little english.... More

For 2 stars hotel, this is a very good hoel. If you like luxury and plan to stay in the room a lot, this might not be a place for you, but if you're planning to wander around Paris all day, this hotel is absolutely fine. The rooms are small, yet with all the necessary facilities (bathroom, closet, wi-fi and... More
