Prior to booking our 3 day break to Paris via the Easyjet website I checked on some of the Tripadvisor reviews and was initially horrified by what I read.
This quaint 3 star (well deserved) Hotel exceeded my expectations and I'm more than glad that I took the gamble and booked. On our arrival very late at night after negotiating the train + metro from the airport (CDG) to Montmartre we found the hotel to be less than 200 yards from the Metro.
We were checked in straight away despite the late hour. I signed one form & was given the key, directions to the room & breakfast start & finish time in the morning. I had requested a high floor + overlooking the courtyard & both these requests were granted.
The room on inspection was clean albeit small with a flat screen tv, extra pillows, blankets + a fan + a radiator. Small storage space but perfectly adequate for a short stay. The bathroom was also clean & apart from a small crack in the shower which we fixed with a bit of cellotape was well maintained. We didn't bother to notify reception as we had no issue with it.
We heard very little noise despite being close to the lift so I'm not sure what earlier reviews were referencing.
Breakfast - Continental in a lovely room, well equipped, clean & the staff were very friendly. The selection was mainly Cereals, Croissants (Raison & Plain) & Baguette with the option to toast. Tea/Coffee/Water/Juice all on tap & more than adequate.
On our return each day the beds had been made, bathroom replenished with towels/soaps etc.
There was a safe in our room but we locked our things away in our case and had no problems with this whatsoever.
On check out - this took less than 5 minutes and again staff were friendly on departure.
Points to note - Trips can be booked at reception such as tour on the River Seine.
Good selection of places to eat close to the hotel but quite expensive.
Excellent Supermarket selling fresh Baguette's for 2 Euro's less than 100 yards from the hotel.
It should be pointed out that this area is in the 'red light district' however regardless of the hour we always felt very safe.
If you are staying for 4 days make sure you pick up a 'Nation' Pass from the Train stattion & ensure you have your passport with you. 39 Euro's for unlimited travel throughout all 5 districts including Airports & Disneyland!.
We would definately recommend this for the price that we paid, expect a basic 3 star hotel & you won't be dissapointed - would stay here again!
