This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Immediately upon check in I was having second thoughts. The staff are rude and demanding. The room was the size of a closet with the furniture and fittings very very old. I should mention that I paid extra to have a larger room. The shower did not drain and made... More

The hotel was conveniently located near the Eiffel Tower and lots of cafés. A 5 min walk to the metro. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the women who worked daytime weekdays. My only complaint is that there was only one electrical outlet and it was not in the bathroom. The bathroom did have a hair dryer. If you... More

I'd recommend if you absolutely have to book this hotel and there's no other choice, call them after making your reservation to ask if you can get the "bigger" room. We booked online and when we got there, we got a room that is so tiny, I literally could not fit in the shower. I am 5'9" tall and 155... More

My room is at the 6th floor but they have a small lift so no big deal and it gives me a view of the eiffel. The room is small but clean. The hotel's location is convenient as it is situated near coffee shops, supermarkets, and is near the eiffel. The ecole militaire is the nearest station but i prefer... More

I stayed here in Sept 2013 for three nights. Typical room size for Paris-small. But I don't spend a lot of time in my hotel room, i want to see the sights! Bathroom was clean, i did smell bleach coming from the bathroom, not sure why the smell was so strong. I would stay here again. I'd rather spend my... More

this is my second stay at this hotel and it is ok. the advantage it has is that its in a great neighborhood. the manager did not honor my rick steves discount so I wasn't happy about that situation. But its like any budget hotel in Europe, super little rooms with really hard beds!!

The hotel is located close to Champ de Mars and close to metro stations. It is OK for a room price of EUR 99,-. The rooms are small but ok, but the bathroom and particularly the shower is very small. It is more or less impossible to bend over in the shower. However, you do not spend much time in... More

The main reason I like this hotel is not only for the location but a few years back, they remodeled a double room on each floor to include a full-size "American" bath including a full-size tub and plenty of space to move around in. These rooms run about E100/night. Be sure to ask for one of these. The single rooms... More

This hotel is clean, affordable, and located very conveniently to the Eiffel Tower, cafes, and other attractions. Rooms are small, but clean. Nice breakfast included. I could see the tower from my room window.

Ok a little dated and a bit of a squash but it was clean and the shower was hot, there was a hairdryer in the room and a window which opened. Some had a eiffel tower view which added to the charm. Location was convenient for metro/restaurants and eiffel tower. Staff were polite and helpful. Good value for a couple... More
