I picked this hotel primarily because of its proximity to the world famous Père Lachaise Cemetery. Although I had been in Paris before, I had never visited this place where famous people like Oscar Wilde, Chopin and Jim Morrison are interred among many. Moreover, I had only a day in Paris as I was heading elsewhere.
The hotel is a three star place. Although nothing spectacular, I found the place extraordinarily clean and comfortable. If you are a light sleeper, I would ask for a room away from the street. Personally, I enjoyed hearing the noises of Paris streets as they lulled me into a slumber, while I imagined that I was in a Peter Seller movie with its police cars blaring their typical Parisienne sirens. The bathrooms were clean and basic. The queen/king sized bed was very comfortable with clean sheets and a very thick daown or faux-down comforter. Although the hotel has a restaurant, I would recommend an early evening stroll along the Rue des Pyrénées. You will come across a number of small shops selling fruits, groceries and find a lot of eateries and bars, where you will find people of the 20th arrondissement where this place is located. The crowds are jovial, friendly, full of life with families included. You can even practice your French with your neighbors as you dig into typical daily French cuisine.More
