“Perfect location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Perfect location for tourists (500m away from Gare de l'est), though the neighborhood was not so clean and nice. the rooms were very neat and clean, perfectly fitted everything u need. Only one thing that bothered me that the staircase was too steep, if u have bigger luggage u'll face a problem to reach to ur room. The breakfast was too less and starts only at 7. Overall its a good choice for a staying cheap but comfortable in Paris.

I've stayed here about 6 or 7 times over the past 5 years and it is great value for money. It is simple and small, but clean and it's a good price for the location. The place is dated, but the staff are friendly and you step out of the front door and you are in the heart of the latin quarter. Rue Mouffetard and it's wonderful markets and cafes is just around the corner, and it's a lovely 15 minute stroll to Notre Dame. I keep coming back because it is clean, safe, friendly and in the right place.

Like almost all tourist hotels in Paris this one is also very "petite" but located in a very nice neighborhood (Quatier Latin).
Our room on the first floor was clean and had two single beds. We could store the luggage until we needed to go to the airport the next day.

I've stayed in total 3 times in this hotel (in 5 different rooms).
Every (twin/double) room I stayed was slightly different. Some have big bathroom, some small, some extremely small but thankfully all had good beds. All of them was very clean, although there could be some better maintenance in secondary places (ex. on top of closet). Breakfast is typical, elevator is typical, staff is very kind and helpful although at breakfast our limited French were the only way to initiate a small-talk with staff (apart from sign language :D ). Owner/manager is extremely attentive as well. Great job.
If you like the location (we did), it has a very good value for money.

We stayed for 3 nights. €85 a night was well priced compared to other accommodation. The guy at the desk was really nice and helpful. The room was clean and neat. I think for the price we paid we did well. Would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel 14th-17th December 2013 and were impressed with the cleanliness and location of the hotel. We arrived early in the morning, before our room was ready and were able to leave our luggage while we went out for the day. We were also given access to the staff bathroom to freshen up. Staff also provided us with ideas on sites to see and methods of transportation.

We stayed in a superior double room and while fairly small, the room was very clean, with a comfortable bed and small but good shower. We didn't require much more from the room as there is so many beautiful sites to see in Paris, we were out most of the day! The complimentary wi-fi worked well and was handy to have.

The location of the hotel is fantastic, with the metro station less than 5 minutes up the road so the major sites are easily accessible. It is also possible to walk to the Pantheon and Notre Dam from the hotel.

I would definitely recommend staying at the hotel if you are looking for a clean, comfortable stay in a good location and are not fussed by a lack of style and bells and whistles!

A clean basic room for a good price. Staff were friendly, luggage storage provided. I was able to check in early which was appreciated after an early Eurostar. It's basically right at the top of rue mouffetard, which is full of lovely food shops, restaurants and bars.
