First the positives -
Location, Location, Location! You exit the Porte d'Orleans metro station and the Hotel is right in front of you. The station is on Line 4 and it's really convenient because many major tourist attractions are on this line as well as the Gare du Nord station.
The hotel staff were very helpful and the manager was kind enough to check us in at 10am eventhough the check-in time was noon. I know a lot of hotels who take great pleasure in making you wait till checkin time eventhough a room is available.
The rooms were clean and the WC and Shower were split, which is really useful if two of you want to get ready in a hurry.
And finally, in a city where it's hard to find affordable accommodation even though there are close to a million hotels, this one is reassuringly light on the pocket!
The negatives aren't a deal breaker but here they are nonetheless -
Air conditioners are installed but don't work yet. I really hope they get them working before the summer.
Because the hotel is right on a busy road, opening your windows is not an option. It's very noisy outside even late in the night.
You have to walk up the stairs to the first floor to take the elevator. So if you are bringing heavy suitcases, be prepared to lug them on for 15-20 steps.
As I mentioned earlier, the positives far outweigh the negatives. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are on a budget. Much better than a budget chain like Ibis.
