The room was small, but I understand this is more or less expected for hotels in Paris so was not expecting a lot of space. It was perfectly good for our stay, and besides, with so much to see in Paris we didn't spend an awful lot of time in our room. The airconditioning was a godsend in the summer heat. The bed was not too hard nor too soft, there were extra pillows in the wardrobe. Although our room faced the main road on the third floor, we weren't disturbed by noise from the outside. The bathroom was bigger than I was expecting, with plenty towels, equipped with hairdryer and soap/ shower gel; it was clean and sleek with a shower but no bath.
We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the breakfast facilities, but there are a number of boulangeries, grocers and cafes close by. There is a little lift, and a safe room where you can leave your luggage after you check out if you have a while before your journey. The staff were really friendly and polite.
Location-wise I was initially worried that it was quite far out from the centre, but the proximity to Nation station is actually brilliant. 4 metro lines and 1 RER line run from the station, so it's probably better connected than many central hotels to get directly to your destination, and no doubt quieter; a metro pass is a good investment.
My only complaint is that the people staying in the next room were not quiet, and I resorted to earplugs on 3 of 4 nights after the volume of their TV woke me up. However, I would say that was more a flaw of inconsiderate guests and not the fault of the hotel.
All in all we were extremely happy with our choice of hotel, and would certainly stay there again should we return to Paris
