All of the staff were friendly and helpful during our short stay in Paris. The room was very quiet, the air conditioning was fantastic and the bed was really comfortable - so much so that I actually forgot I was not sleeping in my own bed at home! The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was good too. The location seems safe and is really handy for the Eiffel Tower. The metro station, just across the road, provides links to other parts of Paris for just €1,50! Would definitely stay again.

Wanted a reasonably priced hotel in an accessible area and got just that! Perfect for a short break in Paris without having to pay the cost of a centrally located hotel. Metro station is just across the road and so easy to get around to the sights. Although it was a bit of a hassle to travel so far every day into the center, for a short amount of time the hotel was perfect. Loved being so close to the Eiffel Tower and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels and linen and more tea and coffee. Couldn't have asked for more.

We arrived in Paris by train (Paris Est) and were relieved to find that the hotel is just across the street from the Metro station. First thing they did was give us a city map and marked the spot where we were. We were early, so they just kept our bags and asked us to be back in an hour or so. It gave us enough time to have lunch nearby. The Eiffel Tower is about 15 minutes away by walk.

There are a few restaurants, bars, and grocery shops within walking distance. There's a Subway across the road, and Mc Donalds a few blocks away (that's open till 1130pm at least for when everything else is closed). There's a bar next door which is open till late hours of the night. We didn't feel unsafe walking back at night, even at 1am after the Metros were shut for the day.

Our room didn't face the main road so it was very quiet. We got the 1st floor room (there's an elevator) and the view was of other buildings and homes, but we were barely in our rooms so it wasn't an issue. The curtains kept the light away so we could sleep in late. The rooms are smaller than when we're used to in other cities, but by Paris standards it was good. We emptied our luggage into the wardrobe and kept the suitcase in so it didn't feel cluttered.

The rooms were cleaned everyday. There's a water kettle with an assortment of teas and coffee which was very convenient. The bathroom has basic toiletries and a hair dryer, and was quite clean.

The front desk is manned 24 hours, and the receptionists spoke good English and were able to help us with directions.

Would surely recommend.

Room Tip: I would guess the rooms facing the road would be noisy because of the pubs that remain open till lat...

Booked a stay here for our 35th wedding anniversary & sent an e-mail in early April requesting a view of the Eiffel Tower if possible - this was acknowledged immediately with a comment to say they had made a note of our request so we felt quite optimistic. However, when we arrived, the very officious and unfriendly receptionist on duty said they not only had no such room available but they had no note at all of our request. When we showed her a copy of the correspondence we'd received, this just seemed to make her even more irritated and unwelcoming. While we didn't expect their e-mail meant we were absolutely guaranteed a room with a view, we did think she could have been considerably less unpleasant and perhaps apologised that unfortunately they couldn't accommodate our request. Instead she just said very brusquely and as if we were really causing her a major problem, 'Well, leave your cases if you want and maybe you'll get a room with a view when you come back but then maybe you won't.' She seemed so annoyed by us even asking and so completely uninterested and curt that we had no confidence at all she would try to help us even if she could so we decided to take the room we were offered - without a view. All in all a very disappointing welcome to Paris.
Other than that, the room was nice, clean and quiet and the hotel in a good location. Other staff we saw on Reception were actually very nice but I'm afraid our 'welcome' really marred our opinion of the hotel.

This was a small hotel located on a busy street, and across the street from the subway.
Our room was nice and what we expected it to be. The window was facing the busy street so it was VERY noisy. Especially in the morning.
The lady at the front desk was nice and helpful, but there was a tall male whom we did not take favor to when speaking with him.
I don't remember if the breakfast was included or not, but we never ate there. It is a very small buffet.
Subway across the street is convenient, and if you walk two blocks down to the right, there is alot of shopping.
We also woke up one morning to a market set up under the subway. That was a fun experience.
It was a 15 min walk to the tower,but I still didn't feel like it was the prime area to be in. If we went back, I would not stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: If noise bothers your sleep, don't stay in room off the main street.

We had planned a 2 week trip following the Tour De France to finish in Paris. We stayed in 6 different Hotels in the South of France with amazing service. We arrived in Paris to be told by the Hotel Manager that they could not accommodate us. This Hotel was the 1st booking I made when planning the trip and even had emails to confirm parking and that we could book out at 1pm so was a long standing booking. The re-directed us to another Hotel which was rated 42% compared to their 87%. Luckily we had a car and had not made our way by Metro.
Not a good welcome to Paris and with no explanation.

Room Tip: Suggest you double check that you still have a valid Booking!!!

The hotel is conveniently located in nice neighborhoods. Lots of great restaurants and local shops nearby. Excellent with Dupleix metro station just outside the door. The staff is friendly and service oriented. Offers advice and tips for the tourist. The room was a superior room with a large bathroom.
