The room was quite small but it was not the problem as it was very cozy, clean and comfortable. Also has very good location. Just 2 minutes walk from metro and near from the most important places to visit. The breakfast was excellent!! I would definitely stay there again.

The room on the 6th floor (the elevator reaches only 5th) was comfortable, not too small and clean enough. The water temperature in the shower was inconsistent. Moreover, the shower was leaking so the room was full of water after taking the shower. The continental breakfast served in the place is good. There are numerous restaurants and grocery stores located...

The rooms are small. I wouldnt say clean. When you take a shower the all room become a pool. The brakfast room is not bad. But in genera i do not recommend it. Yes the price is low being in the centre of paris but this does not justify such low level.

We stayed in this hotel for seven nights. The room was small but we expected this in Paris. The big let down with this hotel was the room service. The bathroom floor needed a good scrub. One day the only way we could tell the maid had been into our room was that the bin had been emptied. Our towels...

While there is no free breakfast, the ambiance is is pleasant and the location very good. We stayed in a larger room on the top floor, which was spacious but noisy. However, everything else was fine so we would return, if the price was right.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour we were on. The bathroom was mouldy, the room felt dusty and grubby and the outdoor light blocking shutters were broken. There is a lift which was great because we stayed on the top floor and the communal area was nice. We were really looking forward to this note because...

We stayed here for one night...one night too long. The rooms are noisy from traffic and other guests. The bathroom had mould in the shower and in the cupboard under the sink. 2 towels and a bath mat. No hand towels,no tissues. Bedside table...if you could call it that...was falling apart. Not one English speaking tv channel. Most hotels would...

We had stayed here for one night in May. The hotel is ok, even good , for the price payed. Location is excellent , with lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. The Charonne metro station is also very close by. The only problem we found was that the person at the front desk was a bit gruffy, not willing to...

Stayed for 4 nights in a superior room. Positives: Good shower , comfy bed, great location, and helpful reception staff. Negatives: lack of hangers and space to hang clothes. No kettle to make tea. Room was a bit on the small side. One pillow each but asked for more. If you a need a basic hotel in a great location...
