“Small rooms not our biggest issue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We've just stayed here for two nights. Rooms small but ok for the price. Bathroom small with daft bath shower combo. Too small to use as a bath and no curtain or shower panel means that if you use it as a shower the entire bathroom gets soaked. Bed linens were good quality. Breakfast was simple but plentiful and the staff friendly. Reception staff seemed bored and unhelpful unless trying to sell tours.

The two worst aspects were the access to the hotel through an archway which at night attracted a large group of youths who were menacing and for us the location of our room about 1 metre from the lift entrance which meant we were woken constantly during the night and early morning by anyone returning to or leaving their rooms. Add to that a maintenance man with a hammer drill who clocked on at about 7.30 and you don't get much peace and quiet.

My mum and I have come from Australia to paris for a holiday. We do not feel safe
because the phone in our room is not working and the door to our room cannot be locked securely. Recently we discovered some money had disappeared. We strongly believe that someone entered our room at night and stole it as our door cannot be securely locked. We have discussed this issue with the manager and staff of the hotel but they did not take any action. As a result our stay in Paris has been stressful.

After booking the hotel, as a very cheap get away, I read some trip advisor comments. I shouldn't have. Some people just like to moan for the sake of it. It is a cheap hotel in a brilliant location. Our room was on the third floor and just around the corner from the lift which made life easier. The room was small but perfectly formed with space for a bag or two plus hanging space for clothes which I didn't expect. A small table and bed side shelves were also available. The bathroom was good, toilet, sink and a large shower (that was excellent) and enough space for one person standing (don't know why people think you need more space...). Hotel staff were friendly when we needed them, breakfast ladies were very chirpy indeed. Breakfast in Paris is always bread and croissants so don't know what the problem is with some reviews. 1 min walk from metro, great restaurants and bars around. Would visit again happily, especially considering the price.

Room Tip: We were not on the courtyard side and had very good nights sleep, no noise, but whenever we came bac...

The rooms are small . Washroom is tiny . Some of the staff serving breakfast lack finesse .The continental breakfast is good but exactly the same every morning . Croissants are fresh as is the bread but do not expect fruits , eggs etc . This is more typically French . I noticed that most locals seem to only have a cafe au lait and a croissant for breakfast . The front desk staff are very helpful . An older short gentleman at the front desk was very kind,affable and went out of his way to make you feel welcome . Although they have wi-fi , they do not have computers available for guests . This particular gentleman was very nice and let us use his own computer behind the desk for a short duration . The hotel is well located . The room was clean as was the washroom but they strictly ration the soap and the toilet tissue .Close to running out a few days . Bring your own shampoo and hairdryer as they are not provided . If you want a romantic place to stay in a hotel this is not for you . If you want a place to sleep that is descent and not unreasonably priced , it would probably serve you well .

Stayed here for two nights as part of Topdeck Tour. Room was clean enough. Bathroom clean and modern but very small. Hotel looks like it has been renovated around 5 years ago as some paint chips are starting to show previous colours. Room was okay for a couple of nights, nothing special though.

Room Tip: Try getting a room that does not face the laneway due to noise.

Don't know much about other alternatives, though this one is considerally one of the worst hotels i have stayed at. However, the location is quite central and there are good communications from the crossing of montmarte/lafayette boulevards.
Our room was not a pleasant suprise - the opposite.
it smelled a lot like - and you could definetely see - moissy areas.
Additionally, if you find better options - i may argue they would be more preferable!

Room Tip: Do not choose roomes facing the courtyard.

Most of what is relevant has already been articulated - yes, the elevator is small.
I got in at the last minute for €110.00/night, and had it not been at the last minute I certainly wouldn't pay this for a 2* which quite removed from the downtown. It is also situated across the street from a city bus depot: and although I was on the third floor, the noise is definately an issue. Unless of course you close the balcony doors, which you won't do in the summer as there is no airco. It's located 1km from the RER which is acceptable, the area doesn't seem that bad and as mentioned, there are several markets available. The two gentlemen who worked the front desk while I was there seemed courteous enough and since I am a frequent Paris visitor, didn't have to call upon them for guidance.
However, when I initially entered my room - which seemed clean enough - I just threw my bags in and headed to the street. Upon my return later that night I opened the bathroom door and was met with a smell that was akin to a French truckstop urinal. And it stayed. The next moring, I awoke to discover NO toilet tissue and a previously used towel in the shower.
I have no idea if this was simply bad luck on my part, but am mentioning this for if there are others writing the same problem, we have a pattern.
