Once you are in the hotel, it’s not bad for a budget hotel. It’s a typical hotel aimed at group travel. The rooms are adequate but nothing special. The hotel was a little noisy and felt like it was cheaply constructed. The view is of a construction site. You get one towel and no washcloth. But in general, I didn’t have a horrible experience with the hotel. The bathtub was the deepest bathtub I've ever seen. I'm a tall man and I had trouble stepping out of the bathtub after my shower. I almost slipped every time I got out of the shower.
The breakfast area was super crowded and had a very hectic feel. It wasn’t somewhere that you could enjoy a nice leisurely breakfast. The quality of the breakfast items was nice.
The location of the hotel was not good at all. First, it’s located in the 17th arrondissement so it’s quite a ways from the center of town. The closest metro/RER station is at least a 10 minute walk, and only has one metro and one RER line at the station. If you take the metro, you have to change at least once, usually twice, to get to the main parts of Paris. Walking with a group from the station to the hotel after dark wasn’t a problem, but walking solo or in a very small group gave me a very uneasy feel.
The hotel is difficult to locate and the main entrance is well off the main street. You have to go down a side alley and then up a walkway to an elevator before you reach the hotel entrance. (See photos) Maybe I was just paranoid, but I felt very uncomfortable walking to and from the hotel after dark.
