My flat in Paris being unavailable, I stayed here for business and had the benefit of a negotiated rate, but even so the cost was greater than the place I stayed in the previous night reviewed separately and much better. The hotel is situated on a main road - on no account take a room at the front. The rooms are big with a screened off sitting area which is the main plus side. They are cheaply furnished, though, and the carpets are particularly unpleasant. The room and bathroom badly needed redecorating, with mould in the corners of the bath and taps etc which did not work properly. It was poorly maintained with a light bulb needing replacing and noisy air conditioning. The bed (two singles had been pushed together, which I had not requested) had a gap in the middle and the mattress(es) was (were) not especially comfortable. Poor quality linen and towels. Noise from the family in the room upstairs kept me awake into the morning. The lobby is tiny and the little bar in the lobby is not a place you would want to sit, though admittedly it is a 5 min walk to any other place to eat or drink. The staff were reasonably pleasant, quite obliging and helpful, but were not French and not easy to communicate with. This part of the 8th arrondissement is not particularly close to any tourist sights apart from the river, and is a food-free wilderness swept by manic Parisian motorcyclists. I would not stay here again unless desperate.
