We booked for 3 people. When we arrived we were told we will be getting two rooms instead of one for a triple due to the bed being broken. Ok fine -no problem. Service was friendly, I did my best at speaking French and all went well. We had two rooms close to each other, one had windows on the street and the room had windows on the courtyard. Courtyard faces another building. One room was just big enough for the bed, desk and a table. Completely suitable for two adults. The other room was much bigger, way bigger than we expected and a huge bathroom. We liked the hotel because it has an interesting style, friendly staff and clean. You can easily hear neighbors coming and going, doors squeaking open as well. In the room I was in, the courtyard view, I did not hear any street noise. My wife and daughter were in the larger room facing the street and they heard a lot of street noise (including those singing in the night).
The downstairs cafe was fine, simple and plenty of room to handle the rush. There was small petit-pain au chocolat, cereal, croissant, cheese, ham, sausage, eggs, coffee, tea juice for breakfast. We liked it - it was simple and easy and good. The ham was really good.
I would stay again if the hotel was in a different area. It is very close to the Jacques Borsergent metro stop and a further walk from gare du l'est. Anyone who I told about this area (Parisians) said this isn't that great of an area.
