“Good to stay overnight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

I stayed there just for a couple of days, so I didn't require much. The hotel itself was very tidy and clean, and the staff was helpful, but the main and, I suppose, the only disadvantage was its location. Nevertheless, it was not so far from the underground and bus stations, so, all in all, it was not a big problem to get anywhere.

This hotel is located so far away from the metro station that it was a cumbersome & difficult process to carry bags for such a long distance. Not many buses come here either and travelling at night is a strict NO-NO. Considering it is located opposite a freeway, the noise continues throughout the night. The room is clean and has an attached big bathroom (compared to other hotels in Paris). Although cheap by price, will think about other hotels in the city rather than coming so far away.

Our first visit to Paris and realise that a hotel room is really only somewhere to sleep but this hotel was terrible. The hotel is on a major expressway next to a petrol station approximately 25 minutes on the Metro Line 5 in an area that does not make you feel comfortable to be out late in.

We were early for check in but the lady receptionist was very friendly and helpful. But on our return we were met by a different receptionist that was totally indifferent. The hotel is supposedly non-smoking but you could smell smoke in our room, most likely coming from another room on our floor. The bedding and towels had black marks, they had been washed but the stains appeared permanent.

So if visiting Paris on a budget I would recommend to spend a little more and avoid this hotel.

Stayed here on a tour hotel very clean and modern rooms nice and comfortable and its really easy to get into Paris as the metro is nearby.
Breakfast was good, staff very helpful and always there if you needed some information.
Wanted to stay longer as we love Paris but will come back to this hotel again!
