“Very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a real pleasant stay. Unfortunately too short to enjoy the area.
It has all needed facilities : location, comfort, kindness, and value.
We had a wonderful breakfast in our room for a very cheap11 euro.
We'll be back for a longer stay.

We stayed here for four days on a short visit to Paris, having previously lived in the area. The hotel is small but pleasantly decorated in classic Parisian style. Our quiet room was reasonably spacious, given the normally constrained spaces in most Parisian hotels (the lift takes a maximum of two people!), and there is a desk and several chairs for working. The wifi was a small problem on arrival but was not the fault of the hotel, France Telecom having caused a breakdown of supply. The heating was more than adequate considering the chilly weather outside. Beds and bedding were comfortable and the room was clean. There is a small fridge and bottled water Is provided. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee bars and little grocery stores in the vicinity and the Metro Varenne is about 5 or 6 minutes walk.
Rue du Bac and the Bon Marche/Grande Epicerie are nearby and the Musee D'Orsay and the Seine are within walking distance. The 7th arrondissement is an elegant area, home to many government buildings and the chic boutiques of rue du Bac and the boulevard Saint-Germain.
*The only minor downside in this little hotel is the bathroom: our room had a very narrow bath with a central hanging shower but no shower curtain - a peculiarly French occurrence.... It was impossible not to soak the floor and the toilet while showering. The only other annoyance was the lack of a kettle - something that this visitor believes should always be provided, particularly in hotels with no room service. We would be happy to stay here again - preferably with a shower curtain and kettle!

We stayed here for 6 nights over the new year period 2012/2013. We stayed in the "Executive Twin" room which was on the top, 5th, floor. The hotel is small, as are the rooms, however we expected this in Paris and so close to the Eiffel Tower. Although the room was small, it had everything we needed including a bar fridge and separate bathroom. The hotel was located about a 10-15min walk to the Tower, the Champs Elysees and the Lourve. The street the hotel is on had at least 2 bakeries, a supermarket and a pharmacy. The supermarket was excellent as we just stored stuff in the bar fridge. All the staff were really friendly and spoke multiple languages, watch out for the tiny elevator and enjoy the free Wi-Fi!!!

Room Tip: Book a room on the upper floors as the street can be a bit noisy and make sure you ask for a Queen b...

If you're looking for a quiet neighborhood with a nice, comfortable hotel, this is a good choice. While I wouldn't classify the hotel as upscale, it's updated, nicely decorated and very clean. Plus, the staff was wonderful. There's a sweet fruit/vegetable market just steps away and a small convenience store across the street, both of which we used daily. Overall, a nice setting and experience.

Perfect for a short break in Paris. Small, clean hotel in a quiet street but not far from all the action. Really nice staff who wanted to help in whatever way they could. Gave us some great restaurant reccommendations and also booked our taxi for us. Our room was not a bad size for Paris and was bright and clean, and to be honest we've stayed in worse 4 star hotels in London. The price is very reasonable and we really enjoyed our stay here.

It was a good stay here, the room was a little small, but it is Paris, the lift was great for taking heavy bags up and down. The rooms were clean but did lack a little character. I good and reasonably priced palce to stay in Paris.
