We stayed four nights at Hotel Muguet in a room at the end of the hallway (#49). Despite this, the noise of other doors opening and closing was enough to wake us up many times. I was surprised how well these sounds echoed into our room. And even with the do-not-disturb sign displayed on our door, we were woken up just after 8 am one morning by housekeeping staff who were chatting just outside our room. After several minutes, I did get up to ask them to be quiet. Unfortunately, we couldn't fall back to sleep afterwards.
The room was exactly as pictured on the website – simple, small, and nicely decorated. The corner of the armoire to hang clothes was not handy, but the shelving on the other side was easy to access. There was an alarm clock and small TV, but no in-room coffee or tea. A sign on the desk indicates that soda and coffee are available downstairs – either will cost you 2 EUR – and that eating in the room is forbidden.
It was a tight fit in the bathroom which was equipped with a shower (no bath). The door for the shower did not close properly, and there was a gap inside the stall (or outside, depending how far you tried to close the doors). The floor did get wet, but not too badly. Also, the sink stop leaked.
Although I understand it is common at hotels in Paris, I didn't care for the practice of leaving our room key with the front desk when heading out for the day. When we would return and were greeted by staff we had not met yet, they never asked for ID or our names when giving us our key. The hotel quotes safety and security as reasons for the practice, but I ended up feeling less safe and secure, and did worry a little about our belongings that couldn't fit in the room's safe.
The location was great. You can find the hotel on a quiet street, just once block from Avenue de la Motte-Picquet and a short walk to the Ecole Militaire Metro station.
