“Ex Holiday Inn Express - no points”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The hotel has changed its ownership all of a sudden without prior notice of IHG. I booked the room at IHG website but was surprised to find another name.
I stayed several times at this hotel in the past, the location is perfect for meetings in South Paris, like Velizy or Versailles, the breakfast is reasonable, and the parking is the same horrible garage with the narrow elevator

We recently stayed at this hotel near metro station Place d'Italie February 12-14, 2014 and it was a great experience. Staying at this hotel added to our positive first visit to Paris. The room and hotel had a homey feeling, which we looked forward to coming back to after a long tried day exploring the city. I chose this hotel after researching many hotels in Paris. My search criteria included complimentary breakfast, wifi, non-smoking, close to a metro station and a certain budget.
• Close to metro station-Steps away from the metro station Place d'Italie, which services lines 5, 6, 7 directly, linking you to Eifel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and The Louvre etc.
• Nice & Clean rooms-We stayed in a room with 3 single beds. Contrary to what I had read about Paris hotel, this was a spacious room. We were able to easily accommodate 4 large suitcases and 3 small suitcases in the room. The front desk helped us to store the remaining luggage in the store room.
• Complimentary Breakfast-Excellent breakfast including cereal, croissants, baguette, bread, cheese, meat slices, varieties of jams, fresh fruit, juice, hot chocolate, milk and many choices in coffee and tea. My teenage daughter and niece especially loved the breakfast.
• Friendly bilingual staff– We arrived in the morning and staff happily assisted in storing our luggage while we went out exploring the city and came back to a nice cozy room. The front desk personnel also happily helped to arrange a larger taxi back to the airport to accommodate our luggage.

This was a hard review to score because the hotel is (IMHO) more than a 3 star but not quite a 4 (again, IMHO).

It is vey conveniently located right across the street from the Metro (Line 5). I have stayed here a couple of times and the staff have always been very friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and functional and the ones I've stayed in have always been quiet. Some aspects are a bit 'tired' though - e.g. peeling paint in the bathroom and narrow, old-fashioned corridors, but it's certainly nothing too bad. There is free Wifi.

Continental breakfast is usually included in the room rate and was pretty good: fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, bread/toast, ham, cheese etc. Some of the toast bread was a bit stale but apart from that it was pretty good and there is a nice selection of teas.

There is no restaurant on-site (except for breakfast) but there are plenty of places to eat in Place d'Italie - staff are happy to advise. There is a small bar at the front of the hotel in the reception area for a quick pre-dinner drink or a night-cap.

Note that there is no safe in the room. Not really a problem if you are staying for one night but might be if you were staying for longer.

But all in all, a pleasant place to stay in a good location.
