This past spring I stayed in this hotel ( as recommended by Rick Steves) a total of 3 times .. the first for 2 days (one room), one week later for a total of 6 days (renting 2 rooms for my sister and her family and myself and my daughter) and then 1 month later for one nite (one room) . so I have quite a bit of experience with them. They are a budget hotel that is fine .. I am a very well traveled person (as are my kids!) and am fine with basic. The good - great location, cheap rates and OK breakfast. The not great - be careful as many of their rooms are very dirty, carpet stained, the bedding was very old and stained and the mattress all caved in in the middle but the worse is their customer service. When I booked the place I talked with the Madame but then never saw her again.. the people there are very gruff even when we spoke perfect french to them ( they refused to speak any english to any of us- I am OK with that as in France!). However, the worse was that on my last hotel visit I had booked and then confirmed 2 nites in June for my daughter and her friend on their 2 days of their European month long trip - even received an email confirmation. When my daughter arrived that nite the manager said there was no such reservation. This is 9:30 at nite in Paris in June .. there is no where else to go. He was so rude to them.. even when they showed him the paper copy of the email and the actual online email from their phones. I called him from Canada while they were still there to ask him to at least help them find a place since the Hotel had lost the confirmed reservation. He refused. He basically kicked them out of the lobby .. 2 young girls in Paris at the highest of tourist time. So I know he had no obligation but really they were desperate and it was the hotel's fault .. he could have made some calls or at least told them to call from the lobby area. No kicked them out. and all that after I had stayed rented 2 rooms for a total of 10 days.. terrible from a customer and person point of view!!
So even though it is a great location and I could live with the very run down rooms for the price I will never stay there and recommend you do not either.
