Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 29, 2012

The staff all spoke English, was friendly and helpful and of course the location of this hotel is simply spectacular. Located approx 50 meters from the Metro it is a great place to stay over if you want to explore Paris. They provide free Wi-Fi and although the rooms are not exactly what you would call huge, it is more than sufficient and even generously sized compared to some of their competitors.

The hotel breakfast is not extravagant but well worth it and the staff makes sure that there are plenty available should you want more. Arranging taxi's, day trips and any of the typical tourist activities was handled with great efficiency by the staff. You simply tell them what you want to do, sit down and wait for the taxi to take you to your destination. It really was great!

My only negative comment would be that there are no air-conditioners in the hotel so it can get a bit warm. The fan helps but can be noisy.

Room Tip: Top floors facing the garden in the back is less noisy and a bit more private if you want the window...

Excellent location, literally 30 seconds from the metro, which is so easy to use. Basic rooms but perfect for a base when visiting Paris. Staff are lovely and free wifi is good. Shower is amazing and big tv in our room, only European channels though! Would definitely stay here again.

The Hotel is centrally located and close to many shops and the Republique metro. The staff is courteous and speaks English. The downside to this hotel was that there is no air conditioning, and the fan provided was noisy. There is also no fridge in the room or bar in the hotel.

This was a marvellous hotel. My room was spacious and clean and very quiet because it was at the rear of the building and had a wonderful power shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location wise fantastic and right by the Charonne metro. Has wi fi connection. Breakfast was very good. It is in such a fun and lively part of Paris.

This hotel is small, but in a great location! Very close to the Metro to get around to all the attraction. The only bad side about the hotel is that you only get very few channels (No English stations, but CNBC Europe); and the beds are 2 twins put together, but very very soft and comfy. Another is NO AIR CONDITIONER!!!! But at night, it cools off and the fan feels very good. The staff is very friendly and will assist you, and speak good english and if you need help with some french terms, they will assist you on that. No doubt that I would stay again!! BTW, if you're coming from the USA, be sure to bring the universal electrical plug outlet. The european outlets is way different than the USA!!!

Room Tip: The rooms in the back that is facing the little garden is way much quiet and peaceful.

The breakfasts were good. One of the night managers--Alvaro--was particularly helpful in giving us advice and guidance with anything and everything.
Location, while near a Metro stop, was quite out of the way. Had to travel by Metro to get anywhere. Standard room was clean, but very small. Since there was no bureau in the room--just a small closet--we had to live out of our suitcases for all the time we were there. Bathroom was TINY. A normal sized person could barely fit in to the shower.

Room Tip: Book a larger than "standard" room. Rooms in the back are quiet.
