We stayed at the hotel for three nights in mid-February 2013 and had a nice time. First things first, our initial reaction on arrival was that the room and bathroom were small (roughly Travelodge size but with better facilities). We appreciate that this may be to be expected in central Paris, given the reasonable price, however were had expected slightly more room. The room and its bathroom could do with a lick of paint, however we spent so little time in the hotel that such minor details weren't really an issue for us. Our room featured large French windows which overlooked a courtyard area, which was pleasant enough.
In terms of location we were impressed. The hotel is less than a minute's walk from Miromesnil (pronounced Miyo-menni) station, which is four stops one way from Trocadero (Eiffel Tower etc) and a few stops the other way from various other attractions. The metro in France is just a breeze and London could learn a thing or two! Tickets are cheap, and are not based on distance of journey. From memory I think it was around E1.50 (single) and you could ride it to any destination along that line. If you fancied going out closer to the hotel however, there were many restaurants within a stone's throw, mostly Italian and Chinese, as well as numerous convenience stores.
The reception staff were very helpful and happy to talk us through what to do, and where/when to do it. Breakfast was basic but fine, as you'd expect there were plenty of cheeses, breads, spreads and a decent selection of cereals etc all included in the room rate.
Overall the hotel was pretty much what we were after. Our room was ok, but the location and service were very good and considering the mid-range price bracket, it's well worth considering if you're staying in Paris for a few days.
