Stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend a 3 nights in july 2013. The rooms aren't that big, but since we were in Paris to enjoy the city, it didn't matter - we only were at the hotel for sleeping.
The staff on Hotel des Ecrivains were very nice to us, and English speaking.
The room was cleaned everyday and we came home to a made bed and clean towels.
The free WiFi were a 100% functional - not as fast as I'm used to, but the connection was good.
The bathroom was nice and clean and had a nice shower cabinet - the water temperature was easy to adjust. Only negative thing about the bathroom was the bad airing/ventilation. The only way to prevent the bathroom from becoming damp/moist was opening the windows and the door to the bathroom for about 15-20 minutes.
The bed was very nice to sleep in.
The windows were nicely soundproof, so no noises slipped through to us during the night.
The breakfast were a 100 % okay, but a bit expensive, I think. In Paris you have many possibilities, and there are cafés on every corner, if not more. In many small cafés you can get a petit dejeuner (breakfast) almost similar to the one on the hotel for 5 - 6 euros per person instead of the 9 euros per person we had to give out on the hotel.
As a plus there were to metro stations just near the hotel - Place d'Italie and Les Gobelins - and with few shifts, we go everywhere in Paris from these two.
In conclusion a nice hotel in a nice area - most certainly worth the money spent. And if you are looking for at budget place to stay in Paris while enjoying the city, I would recommend Hôtel des Ecrivains.
