This hotel really was just perfect for me. I was travelling around Paris alone and needed somewhere to stay for 3 nights that wouldn't cost me a fortune but was still close enough to the city centre. The hotel is literally around the corner from the Metro Line No 1 stop at Porte de Vincennes (La Defense to Chateau de Vincennes), which was only about 15 minutes on the Metro from the Louvre and Tuileries stops. This was fantastic as it meant every morning I could get into the centre of Paris with no hassle at all or worrying about getting lost!
All of the staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke several languages so there was no issue with communication for any of the guests that I witnessed come in. My room was perfectly suited for my needs, clean and cosy with a comfy double bed, a wardrobe and a safe, and the bathroom was just as good with perhaps more importantly a shower that had good water pressure!
As a few reviews have said before me, the walls are very thin so you do hear everything going on around you, especially at night. Luckily for me I was doing a lot of sight seeing and walking around all day so I had no problems falling asleep from exhaustion, however I can understand why some people may have found it difficult to get a peaceful nights sleep (except from the man in one of the rooms whose snoring was a definite tell-tale sign he had no problems sleeping either!).
The hotel offered me a breakfast each morning of my stay for around 7 euros I think, however I'm not sure what this was like as I was out the door each morning at 7am so never had breakfast. There are several little pizza restaurants and bars close to the hotel so finding somewhere to eat for lunch or dinner was no problem at all, and if you don't speak french most of the waiters were fluent in several different languages. I would recommend a little pizza restaurant called "Le Patio" where I actually ate for 2 nights; the food was delicious and the staff were hilarious!
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this hotel, and would definitely book here again on returning to the beautiful city of Paris!
