The location in the interesting Marais district is perfect. Many cafés and small shops in the neighbourhood and an easy walk to many sights and the metro. There was also a laundromat nearby. Both the bedroom and bathroom were a good size and very clean and it was nice to be able to open the windows. Very quiet with windows... More

I stayed in three different districts in paris this time, Marais and this hotel is by far the best located. The republique metro station is 5 to 10 minutes away with infinite connection options. Rooms are nicely decorated, small but comfortable and cozy. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Message to management- some minor maintenance required to keep this place top.... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for Valentine's weekend and the hotel was everything we wanted. It is great value for money, very central and the staff are very friendly. However, true to many of the reviews on Tripadvisor it is rather shabby. The wallpaper is coming off and the sink in our room had many cracks in it and... More

We stayed there for three nights. Staff are friendly enough and helpful when needed. Good value for money in a very central location with a small park across the road and lots of places to eat very close by. The room was clean and comfortable, but very small. Breakfast was simple but good - if staying there for more than... More

If you want to live close to Marais, but not willing to pay too much, this is the place! We were 3 people staying in a family room. It was clean and had AC. The standard was ordinary, so nothing fancy, but at half the price of many similar hotels.
