“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Perfect location with nice people around! Rooms are enough for this price, clean and quiet. Toilets are in The lobbys on each floor, kitchen and luggage room included. Metro station very close by. Notre Dame and Pantheon is just round the corner!

I love this place for its charm and location. The rooms are very simple but very clean, comfortable and with funny colours. The price is great for what one gets. The Pantheon and Notre Dame are just a few minutes walk away, there is a market 2 minutes walking from the hotel and the metro station. It is also more of a guest house, there is a fridge downstairs that can be used by the guests. The stuff is very friendly and casual, one feels immediately at home.

Consider a few inconveniences: there is no lift and it can get a bit noisy during the night when people use toilets on the floor, doors being slammed and loud steps heard.

I would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: I prefer to take a room with the shower because walking downstairs to take your shower can be a bit...

This place far exceeded our expectations. The room was clean, comfortable and simple. A nice bed, desk, shelving, and our own sink. What more do you need when you're in a city like Paris? The staff was super friendly as well, able to answer any questions we had, and even set up a car to the airport for us!

Our only complaint was the shower situation in the mornings. Long waiting time, and they ran ot of hot water. If you're going to shower, best to do it in the afternoon, nobody waiting, and plenty of hot water!

As for location? PERFECT!! Close to the metro, the Notre Dame, and located near a TON of great restaurants, shops, cafés, bakeries, butchers, wine shops, you name it.

Will definitely keep this place in mind for next time!

Stayed for 2 nights. Amazing location, absolute bargain, spotlessly clean, fun decor, friendly staff. Toilets are separate and down the corridor which is a very slight annoyance but hardly a deal-breaker. We were on the top floor - the 86 stairs up to our room justified many a croissant! We loved this hotel and were sad to leave. If I ever come back to Paris I will definitely stay again.

This ho(s)tel is in a great area: super close to Notre Dame, close to the tube, in a fun district, good shopping and good food all over the place. Don't go here expecting a hotel, it's definitely a hostel. You pay extra for showers (some sites don't list that so be warned). The room was exactly as advertised (we had a room for three), small and slightly outdated but clean and comfortable. We had a room right at the front of the hotel with huge windows that viewed out onto a great street which I loved. It was VERY loud at night (across the street from a bar) but I had earplugs so slept like a baby. It's an old building so has no elevator and narrow stairs. I thought it was really cool and very unique (exactly what I was aiming for), but if you're expecting a five star hotel you should stay at a five star hotel. The front desk person was friendly. Showers were clean and had hot water. While we were there they had a "customer appreciation party" and gave us lots of free food (awesome!). They were also very nice in storing our stuff for free after we checked out and wanted to leave our luggage there while we explored the city. Wifi was a little spotty but it was free so I couldn't complain. I'd stay here again. The value for the location was exceptional.

Room Tip: Rooms at front will be loud due to street traffic but have great views. Bring earplugs and enjoy the...

My husband, six month old baby, and I stayed here, and it was a good deal for the price. It is really more of a hostel than a hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised with our experience. We live in Canada but have traveled in Europe before, so we knew not to expect a bathroom in the room. The staff were kind and helpful, and the location cannot be beat. We stayed on the first floor (one up from the ground) and had no problems with our wireless. Our room faced the street, but the noise was not a problem. Overall, we would go back and/or recommend to our friends.

I have stayed at this place twice. The first time I was very happy with it considering the good prices on the rooms and the great location. However, the second time did not go as well.
We were put in the Courtyard room which had no wifi and to get to the bathroom you had to walk outside. We asked the reception if another room was available and the man was rude but did give us another room. For budget accommodation i can deal with a bit of rudeness. However, there were mice in the new room. When I spoke to the man at reception about the issue he denied any knowledge of it, even though there were mice traps behind the heater.

If they have fixed the mice problem and you want cheap accomodation in a great location, I would recommend it

Room Tip: Not the Courtyard room
