Stayed here for 3 nights on a spontaneous trip to Paris. We booked accommodation the morning of our first night stay. We were worried there may be a mix up etc as it was such short notice. But everything was organised and reception was open all evening which was reassuring. Location of hotel was amazing!! Easy access to area with... More

I stayed here for a 8 nights in April 2014 in a single room on a first floor.The location is absolutely perfect: 45 sec to the nearest sport bar, 4 min to Moulin Rouge and night club, 50 min to Louvre, 15 min to grand Opera.(a bit noisy during the night) Monoprix shop is just on a parallel street.g wardrobe(fits...

We booked a room there in May, and on arrival discovered that the hotel was overbooked!!! We were offered a room at their "sister" hotel, which quite honestly was a dump!!! The room there hadn't been used in at least 6 months!!! I doubt if even French husbands would use it for illicit affairs!!!!! There was a smell of damp... More

I know this hotel was cheap and it was what i expected. Not super clean but certainly adequate for an older hotel. Comfortable bed (single) and spacious room. Breakfast was downstairs with coffee and croissants was also adequate. Location was near Moulin Rouge - being solo didn't want to travel city of a night by myself too far from home.... More

terrible experience with children. I had to take another double room to accomodate children. The horrible lady at reception was so rude and arrogant and did not care that we have children with us. Not worth the money, they are theives. Breakfast was too bad, hard bread with juice or coffee only in 5 euro.

Considering the central location, this was good value. If you like Montmartre, which does have the Sacre Coeur and some charming back-streets but is becoming a seedy tourist-trap in parts, then you can do a lot worse than here. The en-suite bathroom in the double room was surprisingly good, new and well-maintained, and the double bed was fine. The staff... More

I have stayed here a couple of months ago. Rooms were dirty with old and overused furniture, cables hanging out of the wall. Breakfast selection was poor. Staff were ok. There was a public car park very close by which was handy, and the only positive thing about the hotel is it's location. I would not like to come back... More

Dear Guests, I would like to post my comments regarding this last review that is totally unfair to me. The credit card card given to confirm the booking was not valid and the hotel was fully booked that day. We have tried to reach you many times without any success In this case,we had no other choice to cancell your... More

I knew I wouldn't get the type of hotel where you get room service or have the option of going to the pool or the spa. I wanted a nice, clean, place to stay in Paris that would not cost me a fortune because I'm not really into hostels. The concierge was always so lovely. They give you breakfast and... More
