We stayed here summer of 2011 during a jaunt to Paris during one of my annual trips to visit my wife, who lives in Bulgaria.
I'll be honest, I was nervous when I booked this hotel. We were on a budget, and I couldn't find a lot of info on this hotel (didn't know about TA back then). Plus, almost all the other hotels on our budget in the entire Paris area was pretty much booked, so I was forced to go through a travel agent. Well, you know, I was mistaken. While it wasn't the best place I've ever stayed, it was still pretty pleasant. The room was nice for what we paid for it, and actually pretty rustic; the exposed wooden beams were a nice touch (that's not sarcasm, it was very tasteful). The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom had a nice big tub (I like big bathtubs haha) and was very clean. The carpet was showing its age, but that was the only thing about the room that wasn't too appealing.
Now, the one thing I wasn't a big fan of in this hotel was that it's right across the street from a nightclub, and neither the windows nor the walls were very good barriers for the sound or lights. It was bumping until at least 2:00 AM which, after a full day of walking around the city, can be very frustrating. We had to check out the morning before our flight was to leave (in the afternoon), and they offered to store our luggage for us until we had to go to the airport, so I liked that (we never book rooms unless they have the option for luggage storage).
All in all, it served the purpose we needed it for more than adequately. Good area, good atmosphere, friendly staff, and comfortable, clean rooms. Satisfied customer here, I'd have no problems staying there again.
