Situated very close to the Eiffel tower and to a metro station, this hotel offers the basics necessary for a short stay, i.e. long weekend - clean enough, reasonable price (even cheap for Paris and this location), great location. Don't expect anything posh. Small rooms, small bathrooms, but relatively clean. Book well in advance.

The hotel is very close to Eiffel, in very beautiful street. Excellent location to stay in the centre of Paris. The room was very tiny but cozy. The staff was very friendly. The price was not that expensive because it was booked in advance, so it the hotel is perfect choice for short stay in Paris!

Very clean, mostly friendly staff. Our room was more than adequate and the bathroom was quite large. The location is incredible with subway and bus stops nearby. But you can walk 15 minutes to all the great sights - the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and just two blocks to the lovely Rue Cler. So many wonderful restaurants just... More

This is a great little hotel, at a very convenient rate -approx 100 $- located at the very heart of Paris, near Eiffel Tower and Motte-Picquet metro station. Staff is great and helpful, rooms are tidy, wi-fi is free and fast... What else do you need? Oh yeah, the rooms are not very big... but the bathroom is fine. Didn't... More

Location is quite unbelieveble, near the Eiffel tower and also subway; you can find small food markets and many restaurants nearby. However, it is a quite old hotel, very small rooms, old decoration and very small elevator. But, if you are looking for location and not so much space and comfort, it will be a good selection.

We chose this Hotel as we were visiting friends who live in a tiny flat on the same street. The reception staff unkempt and rude, most unhelpful. We booked a twin but the 2 beds were together and we had to move the beds ourselves.. the blankets were worn the towels of very poor quality. The breakfast service was cramped... More

So, I was in Paris for 24 hrs, with plans of not sleeping. However, things died down Monday night, so I decided to get a hotel. While I passed several decent places, I settled on this place for 110 Euro/night. While it is a basic room, it's location is fantastic as it is minutes away from the Eiffel Tower. Also,... More

Warm welcome, but a basic hotel. Got a good price just walking in off the street and rooms were very clean and comfortable, ideal for the major touristy bits. Tried other hotels in the area and this was the best price by far, lovely restaurant / bar a few doors away. Would revisit
