Great value accommodation just around the corner from a metro stop (Jacques Bonsergeant). Our room was small, but quiet and clean with a comfy bed. We had quite a climb up a very narrow staircase to room 25...not so bad as we were travelling light but would have been a mission with significant luggage. all the staff were unfailingly polite and professional. I don't know what people expect when they book a room at a hostel or why this should matter but this is an older building with a cool shabby chic thing happening - it's well maintained but don't expect anything ultra modern or upgraded. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Big climb up a narrow staircase to room 25.

I stayed here for 2 nights during the week. When I arrived the lift was out of service but the technician was already on-site to repair it. As my room was on the 4th floor and I didn't want to carry my suitcase, I left my bags and went out for a while. When I came back, the lift still was not fixed but a very kind man from reception carried my suitcase up the stairs - thank you Alfredo :-) The lift was fixed quickly after that. The young lady at reception was most helpful for questions about the area, shops, etc.

The room was clean and just big enough, the bathroom was very small but very well designed and functional. The walls are not terribly thick so there was some noise from the neighbouring rooms, but not too much from the street. I found the bed a bit hard. The hotel offers free wi-fi which was great.

This hotel is very well placed, close to the Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est and Place de la République. There are plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops nearby. Breakfast is not great however, I recommend popping just along the road towards Place de la République where there's a really nice café.

I moved to this hotel after a bad experience at another hotel nearby and I could not have been happier with my decision. The Front Desk staff was very helpful and even changed my room to accommodate me not wanting to take the stairs. The room was well appointed, clean, and spacious for Paris standards. The Wi-Fi was free and worked very well on both of my devices (iPhone and computer). The hotel is situated in the middle of various Metro stops so it was very easy to get around. Also, the hotel is located on a quiet street in Paris so the noise levels were not bad at all. I recommend this hotel to others traveling to Paris and I will stay here again on my next visit.

Good internet wifi - free on more than 1 device with the codes provided by reception.
VERY friendly staff and they all speak English with no "attitude."
Good location close to two Metro stops and close to Republique.
Clean rooms.
Spacious bathroom with large tub.
Non-hotel visitors are allowed to visit without being "questioned or harrassed" by hotel staff.
The a/c doesn't work as well in the winter so this could be an issue on warm days. You can open the windows but the room still gets quite stuffy.

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We arrived in Paris on the Eurostar at the Gare du Nord, we walked about 15 minutes to the Hotel .Aida. The staff spoke good english and were very helpful and knowledgable about the local area.
The rooms are small as this is quite normal for Paris.The bed was comfotable and the room clean.The first night was really hot, we couldnt get the air con to work. The second night this had been resolved.We didnt eat breakfast here, as we thought it was rather expensive. But there are lots of local cafes to choose from.
The hotel is very close to the metro, so getting around Paris is very easy.We left our bags at the hotel during the day we left, at no extra charge. We would definately stay again .

We stayed here on our first proper trip to Paris and found this hotel to be a comfortable stay. The room was small, but to be expected. We thought the decor was cute and it was warm in the room.

We found the location difficult to find at first, as there was huge roadworks around the Republique metro and had to ask a few locals for directions.

Once there we were greeted by a friendly desk clerk who was very pleasant our entire stay.

We skipped the breakfast, preferring to go next door to the patisserie. It has tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however our tea bags were never replenished and we had to ask at the desk for new ones.

The location was a huge benefit of this hotel, good walking distance, a few good restaurants around and a metro close by. It's not luxury, it's a three star hotel that ensures you are comfortable during your stay when you are not out and about in the city.
