“cheap but passable”
Reviewed October 31, 2004

Stayed here in October 2004. Don't think it deserves a 3 star rating but was o.k. The hotel was clean but had seen a lot better days. The breakfast was very enjoyable(croissants etc), staff were friendly.

The position is very good with a metro station just across the street and a bus outside the door. Not far to walk to the centre of Paris and department stores.

They say you get what you pay for and this is definately true about this hotel. But if you are just using it as a base at the end of a busy day then it is more than adequate

Stayed here early Sept. 2004. We had booked this hotel on hotelclub (false advertisement for this particular hotel), it is rated as 3 stars, not even 1 star. The room we saw on the internet site did not correspond at all to the actual room (all the hotel was supposedly renovated when infact it is the case for only the top floor rooms). Beds were saggy, room was run down, shower did not work, no one came to fix it even, poor service. We thought we got a good deat at 95 euros for 3 people, when in fact it was a rip off. So bewarned. It served us a good lesson about internet advertising.

This hotel was absolutely fine for the money we paid. It was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size although the decor was a bit ugly. It was very close to the metro station (cadet) and there was plenty bars and shops nearby. The breakfast was exactly what you would expect, croissants and juices etc. For approx 70 euros per night it was fine.

I quite enjoyed this little hotel. If you are looking for something cheep but clean, with nice management, and in a good area of Paris, this is it. Situated next to Les Galleries Lafayette (the largest department store in the world), there are a good patisserie, a meat and cheese store, a cheep little mom and pop store for food, and even a Chinese restaurant just arround the corner. The metro stop Cadet (on line seven) is a one minute walk away, and L'Opera is within walking distance as well. The hotel itself is nice, and I found it to be clean. A meager breakfast of a croissant, a roll, jam/butter/nuttella and coffee/tea/chocolat is included. The most the staff spoke English well enough (although they appreciated it that I spoke French to them). The one thing I would recomend is not to get a room on the first floor (ie floor above ground floor) because there is a restaurant below the rooms, especially 102-106, that plays LOUD music until about two a.m.. Also, the bathrooms vary in size by room, some are super tiny, some are good sized, so ask for a room with a larger bathroom if you want to take baths.

I stayed here for the first two weeks of June, 2004, so all this information is from that time-frame.

The room we stayed had stinking smell, especially the bath room. The sleeping beds are very old and uncomfortable. The hotel lobby was small and the outside street was so dirty. There is no air conditioner and the room was hot. I don't like the service too. This is definitely NOT a 3 stars hotel.
