Stayed here for three nights in January for a concert at La Trianon. Hotel was easy to find, about a 10 minute walk from Gare Du Nord. Street / Area the hotel is in is slightly dingy but we walked about well after midnight most evenings and encountered no problems. Yes, there are a few Arab gentlemen who will try to sell you bottles of Chanel but they weren't intimidating, just keep walking.....
Couldn't fault the hotel staff - they were all polite and helpful. The room and bathroom were small but was expecting that. We were in a rear facing room which had a nice view of a courtyard, very little noise at night. Room was very clean but could have done with a little updating, on the plus side there was an (HD) TV. Bedding, again was clean, no complaints about the room at all.
There is a lift in the hotel, but typical of Paris, it's very small, it was a squeeze to get both of us and a suitcase in it.
Breakfast was fine for 8 euros, we also tried the bakery just down the street (to the left as you come out of the hotel, orange signage) which was excellent, had lovely baguettes and pastries. There were two supermarkets in the street as well, would recommend the one slighty up the hill and on the opposite side of the road. For the slightly less discerning eater, or if you're in a hurry there's also a McDonalds just over the road.
Location wise, it was about a 10 minute walk to Anvers Metro station, from which we had no problems getting into the centre of Paris (about a 15 minute ride) and round all the sights. Would advise buying a 'book' of 10 Metro tickets (about 13 euros) from the machine at the station, kept these in my jacket and it saved a lot of needless messing around as you only need one ticket per journey. Around a 2 minute walk from Anvers up a side street to the foot of Sacre Coeur.
We found the French / Parisians to be very polite and welcoming on the whole, if you make an effort to speak at least a few words of French (eg always say Bonjour before anything else) then I don't think you'll have any problems.
All in all, would definitely think about staying here again if we were in Paris and on a budget.
