We booked this hotel as a stopover as we couldn't get into our chosen hotel until the following night (after having changed our travel plans).
As we were arriving later in the evening (2100) I looked for a reasonably safe area, somewhere with lots of cafes around, that was also on one Metro line from Gare Du Nord (no changes) and was a short walk from the Metro station.
Also wanted somewhere not too pricey - and this fitted the bill fairly well..!!
The hotel was tucked away down a side street but very easy to find in less than 5 minutes from coming out of the Metro.
It's more a guest house than a hotel and be warned - there is no lift and very steep stairs!
It was quaint though and the rooms though small were clean and comfortable. It was also very quiet so we had no trouble sleeping even though we had the window wide open as there was no aircon.
There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room nor anywhere else in the hotel (outside breakfast time) as far as I could see which was a shame.
We had breakfast but probably wouldn't have bothered if we hadn't needed to eat something before setting off for our next hotel as it was pretty basic and pricey, but that seems to be the norm in Paris! The cheapest we found on our trip was E7,50 at a cafe for coffee, juice, croissant and half a baguette with jam so that should give you some idea on whether to have it at the hotel or not.
The breakfast 'room' was tiny as well so I wouldn't want to be in there if there was more than 6 or so people!
Overall fine for a one nighter and served it's purpose for me.
