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.

We enjoyed stay in this hotel which was clean and quiet. Metro station was in a walking distance and some nice restaurants too. Bus station is directly next to the hotel too. What we liked the most in this hotel was a breakfast menu with great croissants.

This hotel was fantastic for the price. Me & my husband stayed here for 5 nights. The metro station is very close by & so the hotel is easy to get to & we used the hotel as a base for lots of sightseeing. The hotel room was spacious, clean & comfortable. We both slept well & were impressed with... More

After booking for a 4 day stay in Paris I was a little worried the hotel (after getting a really good price) would sour our city break experience. How wrong I was. The hotel was clean, modern, and very close to some fantastic bakerys and excellent travel links. My only gripe with the hotel was our room was a little... More

We stayed for 3 nights, hotel was lovely and clean, rooms cleaned daily and clean towels. Beds were Comfortable. Spent very little time here really as out and about lots. Good location and staff were pleasant and helpful. We didn't have the hotel breakfast which I think 12€ a day is expensive... There's a supermarket just a couple of doors... More

We stayed here four nights and found it to be a good area. Convenient with a metro stop a 30 second walk away. Room was small but there was a full size shower. Front desk workers were helpful and polite. Our only complaint is that the wifi didn't work two of the nights we stayed.
