“Family friendly hotal in Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We had a lovely time in this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean however the bathroom got very cold in the evening and condensation accumulated on the floor. Even though our window faced the main road the noise was not too disturbing, even when traveling with a small child. The location was perfect for doing indoor activities with young children as the aquarium was only a walk away. The breakfast was a bit overpriced for the small assortment of food on offer. Nonetheless we would return to this hotel in the future.

Perfect for a stay in Paris. Clean, warm and charming with a perfect Christmas atmosphere. In front of the Metro station! Breakfast is good even if a little expensive.
Very good for a stay with babies.

We staid one night at this hotel. We get reduction on the room, so we cannot really complain about the quality of the hotel/welcoming/etc. ^^
Rmk 1: there are books/DVD that can be borrowed.
Rmk 2: we have been adviced to go to an excellent restaurant, 100m from the hotel!
I really advice this restaurant as most of restaurant in Paris are really bad :S (or very expensive).

We regularly go to Paris for the weekend and we will surely re-book for another stay.
Staff is kind and helpfull. The breakfast buffet is more than satisfying.
Wi-fi is free but exceptionally slow.
Hotel to be recommended !

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room as the hotel is located on a busy avenue.

I stayed two nights for a bussiness trip and had the luck to be upgraded to a superior room, which was wonderful. Very comfy bed, nice bathroom and good coffee/tea facilities. Although it was very cold outside and I found the room cold the first night and the heating a bit noisy.
The staff was friendly and helpful. I found the breakfast too expensive, 12 euro and you had to serve it yourself and there were not too many options.
It is located nearby the Aquarium and the metro is just nearby. Ther are plenty of places to eat something and several shops. It is not far form Orly airport.
This hotel is so charming that even a film was being shoot at the place!

Room Tip: The superior room was very good, I can't talk about the others.

Green Features: I was happy to see that they had environmental friendly practices.

I stayed in the hotel in the beining of December. The rooms are clean and the coffe option is excelent. The staff are friendly and helped a lot. The metro is nearby and the Aquarium is an excelent place for a family to visit.

Green Features: They have selective bins and keep watching the water use, so they do a lot to save energy.

We stayed in this hotel in November. The room was small but quirky, (not bland) and had everything you would require. There are tea and coffee making facilities, a small flat screen tv, heating / AC, wardrobe and a safe. The double bed was clean and comfortable. We asked for a quiet room and were given room 42 an end room on the top floor facing onto the street. We opened the window at night so there was noise from traffic. However, if you kept the window closed and used the AC, it probably would have been quieter. We booked the hotel (via easyjet) as the reviews and prices were good. The staff are friendly and speak perfect English. We didn't order breakfast but instead brought in the best pastries in Paris from the Boulangerie opposite (Vandermeesch - I think). One of the greatest things about the hotel is the Metro station outside. Yes there was a little bit of rumbling from the metro but as we were out and about all day and only came back at night full of food and wine it didn't bother us too much. I would use this hotel again as the area was safe, there are lots of restaurants and shops nearby and the metro station is conveniently out front. There are a few French restaurants within 5 -10 mins walk, also a McDonalds, Quick Burger and a Subway are close by. There is a small Supermarket a couple of doors up. We visited a local restaurant called 'Chez Ma Belle Mere' which do fabulous Irish Coffees. Beyond the Metro station there is a tram stop which we didn't use and access to a large park. By the way, the lift is hilarious. You can get two adults with 2 hand luggage cases in, just. Not for the obese, I think the staff took large suitcases upstairs.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room.

Green Features: The hotel is very keen on saving water and reusing towels.
