My daughter and I first stayed in this hotel during the summer of 2002, and while usually I rent an apartment when I am in Paris, over the intervening years I have stayed here every few years when I only needed a night or two. My latest stay since summer 2010 was June 2013. For location, value, cleanliness and basic amenities, this hotel is a very good, basic 2-star hotel. The staff is friendly in a brisk, professional way~ they are not going to treat you as an individual, but will meet your needs as a guest of the hotel. I do not think that the breakfast is a good value~ given the location, you have many much more tasty and less expensive options within a few minutes walk. The free wireless internet is too weak, painfully slow and fluctuating to be good for anything save the simplest internet chores like checking opening times or addresses on basic websites. You can't listen to internet radio or watch video or play games~ but you're in Paris! There was a familiar mild smell of mold in the bathroom that was especially pronounced after showering, but I was impressed this time as I always am with how scrupulously clean the bathroom~ indeed, the entire room~ was. Unless you are paying more than 600 euros a night, Parisian hotel rooms are miniscule~ this is a fact that first-time visitors to the city should know before they come and expect. My room had a decent-sized armoire, but suitcases need to be piled in a corner and will be in the way no matter what. Elevators in older buildings will be small and doubtful about carrying up Americans and their luggage. The beds are very comfortable, and when I was there on a Friday night, an extremely noisy club got silent promptly at midnight. Dozens of transportation options~ metro and bus~ are steps away. The Comédie Française, Palais Royale Gardens, the Louvre and the Opéra Garnier are less than 20 minutes walk away, and food options at all price points abound in the neighborhood. I recommend this hotel to all of my friends and family who need an affordable, dependable, comfortable place to stay in Paris for a few days.
