My son and I just stayed at the Cosmotel in Rue Strasbourg. It is very close to 2 metro-stations. The room and the bathroom was fine and very clean, and nice big towels. It was quiet, away from street noise. Nice with the aircondition. Breakfast was OK for 8 euro. Lots of cafés and restaurants in the vicinity, and only 15 min. walk to Notre Dame.

A bit peculiar with a lobby upstairs and rooms located in several buildings linked together. It was very clean, good staff and recently updated. The neighborhood is very ethnic and some might think sketchy but quite typical for Paris and no real concern. Lots of food options in all budgets and excellent metro access to several lines. Rooms were on an internal courtyard an no street noise. Would stay here again without a second thought

Nothing special, worth the price.
Clean, well-located and friendly service.

Parking available across the street for 15 euros a day, great price.
but do NOT come with a big car unless you want it so be scratched/dented all over.
Parking is extremely narrow and it took us about 20 minutes to get 5 floors down and park because we had to be extremely slow and careful.

If you're driving a Smart, you shouldn't have a problem!

Look, if you are like me and are happy with a clean - well located hotel this is for you. Paris is often full of traps for tourists and hotels are not cheap to come by. I went around Xmas time and ud think it might be a decent time to go (its freezing so tourists are on the low) but hotel prices were not cheap. I usually stay at bigger hotels but this one surprised me.

Positives
- Excellent location. Stay here and you can walk around Paris. Metro is very close too as are some bakeries for breakfast. Oh which btw is not included.

- Clean room and bathroom. Modern furniture and cleanliness was on their priority. It looks like its been through a recent renovation (smell of polish all over the hotel). Noise levels were low.

Negatives
- Internet just did not work. I dont know if it was just me but i could not connect.
- Rooms are a bit small. If you dont mind that you will be fine. They are not tiny but just not huge.

Would I stay here again? absolutely. Would i come here and stay on a romantic weekend? no. but if you're on a budget or are in a relationship where looks dont matter anymore this place will be enough.

Some people are also talking about shady ... ladies. Yes they are noticeable but not a nuisance. There are some restaurants/turkish fast food places nearby that do good pizza/doner kebabs are open very late. Served me well when the fancy places were shut.

Room Tip: Views are not to die for - so any room will do.

We stayed here for 3 nights and wasn't sure about the hotel based on reviews/lack of photos but were pleasantly surprised at how pleasant our stay was.

Clean and tidy rooms and bathrooms
Close to the metro (short walk to St Denis metro station)
Friendly staff

The only negative (which wasn't huge) was the internet promised never worked.

Great hotel, very friendly service. Area was a bit shady with some prostitutes on the corner, but still very safe, so no worries there. Walked home at 4 AM from the bars quite a few nights and never had any problems. Very friendly concierge, helpful and the rooms were very clean and spacious.

We stayed for a weekend in Paris. We found it walking distance (1km) from Gare du Nord. The Strasbourg St Denis Metro station is just about 200metres from the hotel door also.

It's walking distance to the Marais - the cultural and gay district approx 20minutes.

The hotel is quite hidden and is up quite steep steps. This isn't a location to go if you have any issue with stairs and carrying bags. The staff were friendly. We didn't eat breakfast as it was extra but there are plenty of shops/ stores nearby and internet cafes. There isn't really anywhere nice to eat nearby and it was in an area where you need to be careful walking at night.

All that being said the room was lovely and basic Parisean. If you are looking for basic and cheerful this is certainly a good location and with the Metro Stop so close really it's very accessable.
