This is not a five-star hotel by U.S standards however I just spent five nights during a business trip and found it fulfilled most of my needs. The location is very good with plenty of shopping in the immediate vicinity, a large supermarket within a few steps, a taxi station across the street, and the Metro station (Line 1) one block away.
The hotel offers Wifi (free for upgraded rooms) and a Business Center. The breakfast buffet is excellent for Parisian hotels, they have a hot and cold selection, an omelette station and they serve expresso drinks on request. Overall, the service was very good, and the staff is helpful and friendly.
I upgraded to a larger room with king-size bed and it was bigger than most Parisian hotels where I have stayed, and I have stayed in 30 or so Parisian hotels. The decor was dated and more in line with a Holiday Inn. The bed was comfortable and my interior courtyard room was quiet. The bathroom featured a bathtub, which is a rare comfort in Paris, and a separate standing shower.
The hotel guests were an awkward mix of wealthy Arabs from various origins and older couples from middle-America. You will see many Muslim families with women fully covered in their burkas. This does not particulary bother me but it may bother people who do not appreciate religious garb in public places.
Overall, there are no negative points although the value for the money is somewhat low.
I recommend the hotel for business travelers, families and solo travelers. I do not recommend the hotel for young and hip travelers or for those on a romantic getaway.
