“A fair location but was hoping for a little more.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Everything within walking distance but room was small and hot drinks was not replenished for our four night stay. Apparently tea had run out (?). Bathroom fine and balcony would be great on a hot day.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed here for a long weekend during Easter. Chose the Hotel due to the good reviews and the location close to Gare du Nord and Marais. Staff is nice and helpful. Hotel rooms aren't anything special. The rooms are decent sized for Parisian standards, bed was comfortable but linen wasn't perfectly clean. Bathroom a little outdated but clean. We didn't stay much in the room so didn't bother. It's Paris and what you get for under €100. We appreciated the location as we just walked anywhere and took the metro when we were tired. We chose not to have breakfast in the hotel. We thought the basement breakfast room looked very sad and breakfast wasn't very appealing and very expensive. There is a lovely place just around the corner called Cafe Petite on 52 rue Rene Boulanger with a nice and cheap breakfast. We would not necessarily return but are still on the lookout for the perfect spot in Paris.

The staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The location was a bit north in Paris, but very near a large Métro nexus, so very very accessible. Nice facilities--bars, restaurants, bakery--very nearby.

Hotel is near metro and main train stations, as well as bus stop for hop on hop off bus. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Walls are paper thin - we could hear the person in the next room using the tollet! Breakfast very basic - cereal, toast, boiled eggs and tuna.

Room Tip: Probably ground or first floor if possible

This is a perfectly adequate hotel where my wife and I enjoyed staying for a couple of nights in Paris recently.

The staff and service are great, very helpful and all apparently English-speaking. The room was small, with a small shower room en suite - the shower was a supposedly luxury one with nozzles spraying jets horizontally as well as a standard shower head but most of the nozzles didn't work and the handle for the shower fell off repeatedly which was surprisingly annoying. The walls are thin too - we could hear one neighbour snoring which was, again, surprisingly annoying. We're not normally easily annoyed, I promise!

But in spite of all this we enjoyed our stay for the most part and paid EUR140 for two nights which was very reasonable. They were also more than happy for us to leave our bags both before we could check in and after we had checked out which was very helpful. All told, we would probably stay here again, given the good location, value and service.

I stayed 3 days in Paris in this beautiful hotel. The location is perfect for those who want to visit all the museums along the Seine. Also just outside the hotel there are excellent bakeries. However, to avoid the bars, restaurants: very high costs.

My room is definitely small and far from the beauty I saw on the website.
Luckily it's close to the metro station (line 5 - Jacques Bonsergent) and less than 10min walking from Place de la Republique.
Although the room is warm and the staff is very kind and english speaking.
I'd been here only because I have a SmartBox.

Room Tip: I have the feeling they have serie A rooms and serie B ones.. watch out.
