For people who travel often to Paris and want a simple, clean and friendly place to stay this is perfect. It is a short walk from Gare du Nord. It is good value for the money. It's been redone in the style of Ikea... in a good way. And it checks all the boxes.
The rooms are small and the hotel doesn't have frills -- the elevator is big by Paris standards -- but still bound to give Australians and North Americans claustrophobia.
