This hotel is not as bad as some people make it out to be. It's decent, no thrills accommodation in close proximity to restaurant's, cafés and a subway which is literally at your doorstep. One thing I did find peculiar was the policy of handing back our room key every time we left the hotel. Yes the lobby is tiny,... More

A lot of reviews here seem to focus on the small lobby and steep stairs. What do you expect? it's a great location and typical suburban hotel a stones throw away from the heart of Paris. We loved it, staff was really amazing and helpful, room was very clean and reasonably maintained. Metro is literally 10 steps away (as well... More

Hours before my birthday, I came close to being a victim of robbery in the metro just just outside of the hotel after somebody tried to take my suitcase which fortunately was too heavy to run away with. On arrival the receptionist spoke a good level of English but was not friendly at all. With no assistance offered, I carried... More

Small clean hotel with tidy light rooms. Good location, metro station next door, everything necessary is near. But they better change shower curtains)) not very easy to go upstairs with suitcases. A bit noisy if you open the windows. I recommend it, if you going just to sleep at the hotel and take showers.

Ok so hotels in Paris are pricey - this hotel was cheaper than the average but did not expect it to be the disgusting hole that it is. First things first, before I go into any details THIS IS NOT A HOTEL!!! It is more like a hostel. The lobby is the size of an airplane bathroom - I am... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. It is not as bad as what people said. The stairs were killing, because it was narrow and it goes spiral on. I felt dizzy after walking up two flights, but the room was not too small (we stayed in Room 9, a double room). The shower was small but acceptable for freshening up.... More

I can say when we first arrived we were pretty shock at the entrance and then we made our way up to the 4th floor in room 6. We had a great view. Felt the room was quite spacious but the bed is a little small than other hotels We have stayed in but we both managed easily. I called... More

WORST HOTEL EVER STAYED AT!!!! I wish I read a review like this before staying and it would have saved me an AWFUL stay. This hotel, is not a hotel. The lobby is a tight narrow space with a different guy each time that will expect you to leave your keys with them every time you leave the hotel. The... More

Wow this hotel was disgusting from the moment you see its shady blue sign outside what seems to be a skinny run down office, not even the size of a washroom that they call a Lobby. There is one guy in a tight corner where you check in. You are then to walk up 7 flights of stairs to get... More

Very friendly when we arrived and wanted to accomodate any way they could. Our first clue should have been when they showed us a room that was occupied (the guests were out). Yes - you have to leave your key with them when you leave the hotel. Rooms were in short supply so we were in a tight spot. We... More
