“Can't ask for more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This hotel is located off the beaten path, away from the touristy areas but accessible to all parts of Paris via the Metro. Rooms are sizeable, private bath, comfy bed, quiet, wifi. All at a very reasonable price. There are lots of good restaurants at Nation nearby. Pere Lachaise is a 10 minute walk if you wish to pay a visit to Jim Morrison or Oscar Wilde.

For the cost, this hotel is a very good option when in Paris. It is basic but clean. When we arrived before the official check-in time, we were told we could look at the room to OK it before we officially checked in - something we appreciated - and we were able to check in, which is always nice after a long flight in coach.

The bathroom is TINY with a TINY shower so keep that in mind if you think that would be a problem. The bathrooms were built into the existing rooms - a great way to add a private bath - but this means that the rooms are small. This didn't bother us at all when you compare the price of this hotel to others in Paris, and the location is very handy to the Metro.

The staff were friendly, and although seemed to have limited English, were very helpful. We loved the neighborhood with its excellent bakery and restaurants and enjoyed not being in the middle of the tourist area. We felt safe walking around the neighborhood at night and very early morning.

We would definitely return to this hotel and really hope that we will be able to.

A budget travelers dream, affordable, quiet, clean and spacious room with a firm comfortable bed! We stayed May 15-18 and will be back May 30-June 5. It is a short walk to plaza Nation, take 351 to and from CDG airport and there are many bus and metro options at Nation, the bus is a little slower but better because you get to see the city.

Close proximity to subway / metro and bus station, very sparse. No tv, phone or safe, but had a private water closet, electricity and wi fi. Staff was extremely helpful, in spite of the language barrier.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights while in Paris. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hotel is just a five minute walk to the nation metro stop which was so convenient for seeing all of the sights. The rooms are small and very clean, but you have everything you need. Would absolutely stay here again!

The service was really good and it was clean. The location it was ok since the nation metro station was very close and it felt safe. The rooms are small and old fashioned but for the price we paid it was really good!
