As per the title, this hotel is very basic. Therefore, you won't find much in the amenities department. What you will find, however, is a satisfactory, functional hotel in an excellent location.
Upon arrival at the hotel, the English speaking staff greeted me and my family with smiling faces.They also offered us a map of Paris with popular tourist attractions marked on it as well as activity brochures. We were also directed to a market called the Franprix for cheap goods. The market is literally around the corner and across the street from the hotel (maybe 75 meters/yards). Inside you'll find a wide variety of goods. Most important to me, though, was their wide selection of water. I found a brand of non sparkling mineral water called Black Forest for only .65 euros per bottle that I really liked.
The room itself was fairly clean, just don't go licking the walls or taking naps on the floor (treat it like any other hotel). There isn't much to say about the beds other than that they're beds. They weren't the best, but they certainly weren't uncomfortable. Other than one connection hiccup, the free wireless internet service (WIFI) was fast. There was a nifty towel warmer in the bathroom as well.
The complimentary breakfast included a french baguette with a selection butter, jam, cheese and a nutella-esque toppings on the side. Options for drink include hot chocolate or coffee. While lacking in variety, one should find the breakfast filling and unique.
The hotel is walking distance from the Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, and Sorbonne University to name a few. My sisters enjoyed a clothing shop just a couple hundred meters/yards to the west called Pim Kie.
Overall, 155 euros for a 4 bed hotel room in a prime location was well worth it for us. We enjoyed our stay and I can imagine you will too!
