Too far from the sights. Took about 15 minutes on the Metro to get to the Eiffel Tower stop. Also, no air conditioning. Very uncomfortable in August. Good breakfast, nice reception workers, and close to the metro. Not enough happening in the general vicinity .

We stayed for 7 nights in August. Lovely warm welcome from reception, we were lucky enough to have a room on the top floor with a large roof terrace with table and chairs which looked over the rooftops of Paris. The room was compact (as are all Parisian hotel rooms) but very well designed to make the most of the... More

No AC in rooms though. One night we were disturbed by the night porter having his radio on incredibly loud and... More

I don't even know where to start.... It's truly a very horrible place to stay! Let's start from the arrival.. The receptionist guy, Eric I believe his name was was so rude to us just purely because we don't speak French.. He thought we were English and he was constantly speaking french to us and explaining to fill forms in... More

The rooms were very clean, a little on the small side but very comfortable. The staff on reception were very welcoming and helpful, especially Eric the night receptionist who was very helpful when we decided to have pizza delivered to the hotel, he kindly ordered it for us and went out of his way to make us comfortable in the...

I would never ever stay here again. We stayed for 7 nights. Housekeeping was downright awful. I'm not sure if they actually ever cleaned. After the 1st night, a crushed cheerio managed to stay on the floor after they had 'cleaned' for the day. We ran out of soap (in the soap dispenser in the shower) on the 2nd day... More

Do not stay here. Awful experience. Seemingly good service to your face and steal from your room safe when you are away. Our multiple night stay was overshadowed and tainted by the events of the last few hours of the trip. Several things occurred but to recap a few... Key points: - our in-room safe was tampered with, and would... More

The hotel is just few steps away from Charonne Metro station and surrounded by several food joints and bars. Staff members were friendly and helpful. The room was good sized and clean. Breakfast was just okay. Staff members were helpful.

Small place with very small rooms but clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast was great, especially the croissants. Staff was friendly. I would have preferred to be within walking distance to Notre Dame but the metro is only a hundred yards away.
