We stayed here for a one-night stopover stay on our way by train to Germany. The reception staff are very friendly and smiley, and extremely welcoming. The place is also very easy to find, right next to the metro station on line 9 at Rue des Boulets (about 10 minutes from the Eurostar at Gare du Nord with one change at Oberkampf station) and also near a big transport interchange at the Place de la Nation. There is a good variety of restaurants in the area with fairly reasonable prices which is quite rare in Paris! Rooms small but very clean and comfortable, with an exceptionally sleek and clean bathroom. We stayed in room 1 which is on the ground floor and very quiet at night. Can't comment on breakfast as we didn't have it (had to catch an early train from Gare de l'Est). The area is very lively and felt pretty safe at all times generally.
Overall an excellent hotel for visiting Paris whether for business or pleasure and can recommend it to everyone.
