Stayed here for four nights in July.
Pros: Located in 5th arrondissement, a 15-minute walk from Notre Dame, and one block from Rue Mouffetard. Price of room was decent for a good neighborhood close to the center of Paris.
Cons: Teeny room and bath (not unexpected). Accommodations a bit down at the heels. Bath towels could double as emery boards. Beds not horrible, but not comfortable. The rubber sheet under the bottom sheet was a gross touch, and made for a lot of "crackling" whenever one turned in bed.
We were on the first-floor (above the ground floor). When we walked up the stairs, we found plastic sheeting all over the hallway rugs, and the hallway reeked of paint. The painting continued until about 7 p.m., and continued again on subsequent days. Seriosly??
Summary: It's an affordable place in a great location. That's about all that can be said for it. However, we were willing to sacrifice a bit on the room in order to have more funds for meals. If you book with a similar expectation, this place might work for you.
