Lovely stay here, it was roughly a 10min walk away from surrounding stations. The hotel has a nice view of the river, if you are lucky to get a room with that view. Stayed here for a few nights with a friend and it was a comfy nights stay. Breakfast was nice, the usual bits and pieces that can keep you full for a while. Staff seemed friendly and were always pleasant when you spoke to them. I would probably find a hotel a little closer to the centre when returning to Paris.

Clean and modern hotel in a nice area - a lot of hip restaurants/bars on the marina and nice large park on the other side of canal. Easy ride to the city center (subway lines 5 and 7 in short walking distance). A number of supermarkets around as well. Antoine at front desk was very friendly and helpful. Got upgraded to the top floor balcony room as a Platinum member which was a nice gesture. Breakfast is included (with optional a la carte orders for extra charge). The only concern is that they don't have coffee machines - only brewed coffee is available on breakfast.

We stayed for 3 nights as a family of 3. Check in was quick and the staff were polite and helpful. The room was clean and was had the usual facilities, the website mentions a safe, but there was none in our room. We opted out of housekeeping in order to boost our points, but as we only used the room to shower and sleep it never needed it. Room was on floor 5 facing out onto the canal so apart from the odd police siren we heard no noise at all. Breakfast was as we thought, croissants, bread, pain au chocolate, cheeses, meats and fruit. A great way to start the day. No evening meal option, but we ate in the city Centre. The centre of Paris was only 15mins away by Metro, we found it easier to use Stallingrad Station which was a short walk away along the canal. At night there were groups of people at bars, playing boules etc but not once did we feel scared or intimidated, as they kept themselves to themselves. All in all a nice place to stay and at very reasonable prices. Would stay here again.
