I discovered this place on a previous trip to paris and my girlfriend and i agreed to stay for one night here (simply for the 'lols'). Well shortly after arriving it became less funny and more of an annoyance. The room for me was certainly adequate considering the price paid. We note however that there was no hair dryer, nor was there any information in the room. Even a simple laminated sheet of A4 would have sufficed. I went down to reception to ask about the Wifi and had to pay €2 for 2 hours. I didn't think the price was too expensive, better than having to pay 3G roaming charges. But here is the catch; the wifi can only be used by one device at a time. The system will not permit simultaneous logins. This was quite a big drawback for us, considering a lot of places provide wifi for free and/or are more flexible.
The room and ensuite certainly felt clean despite the initial annoyances and the bed was comfortable enough. The furnishing could do with a refresh, although at least the bathroom looked like it had recently been refurbished. A small flatscreen TV was included but , only out of curiosity, i found only receives french equivalent of Freeview (TNT?) so that meant to no english speaking channels.
The man at reception during the day seemed very nice and spoke good english. In the evening, a different man worked the reception desk and although seemed nice enough and spoke a decent amount of english, gave us a very vague answer after asking him if he could recommend any good restaurants (all of them? really?) We ended up visiting a very nice italian restaurant near Strasbourg- Saint-Denis Metro station (Caffé Bolleli)
Breakfast was typical french (orange juice, tea/coffee, croissant and quarter of baguette with selection of jam, butter and marmalade).
The location is good for the main stations and for travelling into the city centre, and the area is considered a bit rough but we didnt have any problems.
