The Hotel Allegro is in a quiet location in the 12th arrondesment, which is not a tourist area more residential. However it is only a three minute walk to the nearest metro (Pirus) on line 6 and only a ten minute walk to Pl. de Nation which has many metro lines passing through including line 1 which takes you to the centre of Paris. ( There are aslo many good restaurants near Pl. de Nation).
The Hotel is clean and comfortable unfortunately, when I arrived my door had a notice on it saying 'wet paint'. Although the painting was in the corridor not the room the fumes off the red paint which they had used on the door frames was horrendous! It affected my asthma, my eyes and my sinuses. I felt really ill because of the fumes. The only way I could cope was to sleep with the large windows open even though it was freezing outside. I'd rather be cold than die of paint fumes! So I survived my two night stay at he Hotel Allegro Paris, but my lasting memory will be the paint fumes. In my opinion this whole corridor should have been closed whilst the paint fumes had gone. This was on floor 3, (etage tois).
It is a shame as apart from this, the hotel is a very good choice; safe location, very friendly staff and a good breakfast if you get there early enough; as towards the last hour they run out of things and don't replace them! So it is first come first served. I didn't mind too much as I had a very good deal which included breakfast but if I had paid the full rate for breakfast which was I believe 13 euros, I think I'd be very upset if half of the choices were missing because I had arrived during the last hour rather than the first hour!
Breakfast is served 7am until 10.30 am ..so as long as you are downstairs by 9am you should be fine. I would stay there again but first I would make sure there had been no fresh paint in the last month on the floor my room was situated on. Oh yes, apparently the first floor is the smoking allowed floor,; which as an ex -smoker I found a little bizarre, not just from the fire hazard point of view; flames andt smoke rises, so if they were to have a smoking floor shouldn't it be on the top floor not the first? I could smell smoke on the third floor but not in the bedroom. I thought smoking had been banned in all public buildings in France; but it seems in French Hotels they are alloled to still allocate smoking rooms and floors! ( So if you don't like smoke avoid floor one and if you don't like paint fumes avoid floor three; at least for the next month!).
