I think that Cactus Hotel in Paris is a real value money Hotel in Paris. The price per night is very cheap and the hotel is located near the station of Metro "The Volonataires". We had the oppurtunity to reach any place in Paris in a very quick and comfortable way. The rooms are tiny and quiet. I only find some problem in a very poor breakfast, but the croissants were excellent. I will stay there again next time.

Room Tip: Real value of money

The hotel was pretty "basic" , the smell was awful. The breakfast was only Croissants and hot drinks. I would give 2 of 10 for this hotel. I stayed here for 2 days of my 5 day trip. I only remember those 3 days.

We had 2 adjoining rooms that were small but relatively clean - except the bathroom, which had mold in the shower. The breakfast was ok, but get there early or they run out of croissants. A better bet is the Boulanger on the corner - awesome rolls and baguettes. Close to Metro, but not close to any Paris attractions. The best part of the hotel is the very nice man at the front desk, who does not speak English very well, but works hard to communicate, is knowledgeable and very polite. I wouldn't stay here again, but it is decent lodging if all you want is a place to sleep at a relatively low price for Paris.

Before I go into details about my bad experience, I'll just say that:
-the consierges are very nice :)
-the rooms are tiny
-going up the narrow stairs is very hard if you have a lot of luggage
-breakfast is good :) fresh croissants served with a hot drink such as hot chocolate, tea..etc.
-you can see the Eiffel tower from the front of the hotel. Also, if you want to save money there is a supermarket around the corner were you can buy food.
OKAY NOW THE BAD PART:
My ipod touch served as my alarm clock, and on my last day i left it on the bedside table. When i came back at 21:00 I discovered that it was no longer there. The cleaning lady obviously took it, since she has access to the room. They called her at home but she denied it, since there is no way to prove her guilty. I now realize that i shouldnt have left it on the table... but either way, the cleaning ladies should not take what doesnt belong to them :S remember to hide all of your valuables...

I stayed in Hotel Cactus but could not check in until 3 p.m. Petit dejuner was supposed to be included but I had to leave early in the morning. They would not give me coffee for the next morning. There is no elevator so if your bags are heavy, the stairway is treacherous. The locks on the doors do not work and neither do the hallway lights. The place is not clean. there is no reception area open where one can wait for a friend. They advertised for internet but there was none.

This hotel is good situated with Metro station just around the corner. Also Institut Pasteur is only a few meters away. But this are definitly the only good things! It is definitly not cheap enough for these dirty rooms! Everything is used up, it smells strangely and you wouldn't want to touch your blanket with skin. I do NOT recomend this hotel! There are a lot of other hotels in this area - no need to go to the cactus! The breakfast is not good and exept from one lady in the morning the staff is not friendly!

Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, but certainly not a modern or fancy hotel- exactly what one should expect for less than 100 Euros per night in Paris. I would stay again.
