This is a nice hotel. Yes as in previous reviews NO AIR CONDITIONING. Our first night was brutal as the temperature was hot at night and we did not get much sleep. But the remaining two nights were cooler and we were able to sleep. The breakfast if perfect. Cold meats, cheese, breads, fruit and an egg bath to hard... More

I booked this hotel as part of annual trip to go dancing by the River Seine in Paris with friends. A 2 rating may seem unfair, because the hotel is worth a 3. But, based on my room experience a 2 rating is deserving ;-) Minuses room was too hot, even when it wasn't hot outside the room was like... More

Well, me and my wife really enjoyed this hotel. It is located in a quiet, safe part of the city and the area is not that "touristy" (we like that). Two metro stations really close and plenty of bistros, cafes, etc. in walking distance. The best options we found where in the Pereire station traffic circle, where we tried 3... More

This hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is older, but very clean. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The included breakfast was good. Two blocks to the Metro was convenient. Room was small but all we wanted was a clean and comfy place to sleep after sightseeing all day. Therein was the problem: no A/C. There was no air... More

The only reason it's only 4 stars is Free internet but slow, and no AC. We went in August so no AC was a killer. Location is so so kinda off the tourist track but close metro in a safe feeling neighborhood. 5 big stars for the amazing breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice and the super helpful staff that...

Everyone was so helpful in directing us to where to go in Paris. Breakfast is great, service is great. The location is a bit far from everything but a 5 min walk to train... Paris has the best train system so you cannot walk 5 blocks without running into a train route. Rooms did not have air conditioning and wifi...... More

I stayed here for months in the late 1980's and returned on a recent trip to Paris. It's looking smarter these days! It's a short walk to the Arc de Triumph and generally in a good and quiet location. It's very comfortable and well managed.

We were so happy to find this nice hotel at such a great price. I think the price may be a little higher in peak season but worth it. The cleanliness of the hotel, the size of the room and the included breakfast were excellent. We had one of the biggest rooms we've had while in Europe - with a... More
