The staff were very helpful and friendly, all knew some English which was typical of all the hotels we stayed at in Spain and France. The neighborhood is fine, away from all the hustle and bustle of main tourist areas. Maybe a little too far... There are a few good restaurants close by and one exceptional bistro next to Plaisance metro station. Nice little wine store just down the street and metro stations are fairly close. Its located somewhat south of the major sites so metro rides are a must. It's far from CDG airport, so expect a 70 Euro ride.
We slept three in our room and though it was tight quarters, we managed. Rooms are modern and well kept. The beds were comfy. Bathroom was big enough with bath and shower. Lobby is very nice and they offer a breakfast at an additional cost.
Would we stay here again, probably not but mostly because of the many choices and alternative locations. I think for the cost, comparable or nicer hotels can be found.
