Stayed at the hotel from March 17-24 and overall it was a positive experience. The train ride from CDG airport was literally about 30 minutes, and from the Gare du Nord station it's a 5 minute walk to the hotel (p.s. you may opt for the airport shuttle service, which I believe is 18 Euros each way, per person).
I do agree with the previous reviews that the doors were a problem (I believe as my "studio" was located right next to the elevator and I had the privilege to listen to the elevators going up and down with the doors opening and shutting on a daily basis); however, I was fortunate in that my room was situated in a corner away from the streets.
The bed was very comfortable and despite its small size, I did not find that to be too much of a problem (it is Europe afterall). My room also comes with a small kitchenette which gave me another option to cook in the hotel.
In terms of transport, the hotel is very conveniently located in the 10th arrondisement. There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel for Bus 30, which runs from Trocadero to Gare de l'est. From the front of Gare du Nord Train station, you could also hop on the Bus 48 to Louvre, as supposed to transferring from one metro line to another.
The area also has lots of food options: a Mcdonalds and Subway across the Gare du Nord station, and a Monop' grocery store around the corner for daily grocery needs.
All in all, it was a good hotel based on the amount I paid for it. and best of all, it has free WIFI. :)
