We did a Eurostar train and hotel package and decided on this hotel as it was central to all the important tourist spots and not too expensive. We knew it was in a more bohemian part of the capital, slightly rundown and ragged around the edges and unfortunately the area the hotel is situated in is not the most salubrious. However the hotel was fab; breakfast was a good range buffet of hot and cold foods. Our room was good and very clean. The lift is a brilliant, one of those old wrought iron, double door affairs. The reception staff were excellent; all spoke very good English and were incredibly helpful with lots of tips/advice on what to see, when. Its easy to get to from the Gare de Nord, either walking (about 20-30 minutes when reading the map) or getting the metro to the St Denis stop and literally walking 3 minutes. The area the hotel is in is a melting pot of dozens of different nationalities. There are loads of bars and restaurants around the hotel for dinner in the evening; the Hippopotamus (I know its a chain) was 5 minutes walk away going towards the Bonne Nouvelle metro but did really good, freshly made dishes. We stayed for 4 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel for its location alone but as part of a competitive Eurostar package it was excellent. The one drawback and hence why its only 4 star is that either the walls are thin or some of the other guests have no idea on how to talk/behave in a hotel room as on one early evening in particular we could most definitely hear the conversation of our neighbours.
