After reading the reviews below I was a little wary of the hotel we had booked, but on arrival these trepidations were proven to be false. The location was in more of a residential neighbourhood but it was in no way unsafe. The Hotel itself was very welcoming, and the staff were very friendly.
On checking we were told our room was ready, but on entering we found it was not. The concierge was very apologetic about this and the problem was rectified within 20 minutes. Once we were able to get into our room we found it to be very nice. it was a very decent size with plenty of storage space and a large spacious, clean bathroom.
During our trip the closest metro stop was under maintenance, but there were two other metro options, both easily with a 10 minute walk. The other reviews claiming that a taxi was needed were truly unjust, the area was very safe. Unless you have never visited a mid-large size city in your life before you would understand this. There are also several Vélib (rentable bicycles) stations around the hotel which are very fun and useful.
Checkout was at 12 rather than the usual 10 and we were able to leave our bags in the hotel's locked baggage room for the day while we visited more of the city.
Overall this is a great hotel if you get it at a good price. We paid £180 for Eurostar and two nights, so a great deal. The reception desk has a sign with prices starting from €440 so book in advance!
