“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Stayed here for almost a week and i really enjoyed it. The room was big (compared to other Paris establishments) and clean, very nice furniture and extremely comfortable bed. The room was cleaned daily, toiletries were provided daily. The room also has free satellite TV and the hotel provides free WiFi. The breakfast was classic french breakfast (though not included in the price of the room, so expect to pay 12€ per person). They also have a really nice garden where you can have breakfast during warm sunny days. Also, the hotel is 2 minutes walk from the closest metro station (which is a big plus). Regarding the staff, they were very friendly and helpful, they answered all my demands and my inquiries with smile on their faces.
All in all... a very good experience, i would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a room with a view in the back of the hotel (over the garden) because some...

We loved it here,was in good location-easy to catch a bus or train from,just a hop,skip and jump to both.The bakeries were close too and French pasteries here were the best I have ever tasted.Very clean hotel,good sized rooms,private patio behind hotel which we loved.Most hotel staff were very helpful as I speak French badly.I dont anticipate returning to Paris but if we do return I would not hesitate to book a room here.I would also like to add that this room had the best supplied bathroom I've ever seen in a hotel.The shower was the best I ever been in.The soap and shampoo was of a superior quality and the hot water never thought about running out,Im sure I am not the only person who loves to take a long shower after walking around all day in a huge beautiful city such as Paris.

This hotel was located near the metro. The cafes in the area were not typical tourist traps because the hotel is tucked away from the major tourist areas. We really enjoyed the breakfast!

The downsides: The brunette at the desk (taller one) was very rude and not helpful on our first day when we were trying to buy metro tickets. Also, my husband, who is 6'5 did not fit in the shower!

I also came back one evening to find a cup with nuts and bolts in it that they apologized for and said maintenance must have accidentally left in our room. Very strange...

I wouldn't stay there again but it worked.

i was very pleased with this hotel. A little gem in Paris.

it was only a very short walk to the Charonne Metro station, from where we could launch out across Paris. The rooms were quiet and breakfast simple and nice.

the staff were also most helpful and friendly.

Small hotel but it was clean and very close to the metro. Front desk staff speak English and were super helpful, I forgot her name but she told us how to get everywhere and even arranged transport to the airport since we were flying out to Madrid. Bar located right next door and a couple of restaurants and a super cute bakery where I could get my pan o chocolat, were very close. Neighborhood appeared to be safe. If you're looking for a clean, budget hotel with easy access to transport, highly recommend it.

There is a world of difference between a 4 or 5 star hotel in the US and a 4 or 5 star hotel in Europe. This is a small, clean hotel with great food and a decent location. By US standards, this is NOT a 4 star hotel, but probably is by European standards. The rooms are small. The beds are singles and the shower was a trip. Inexpensively priced, though and if you are on a budget, this is a good choice.

We had a terrible experience at this hotel! I have never been in such a small room (we laughed when we first saw it) but the bathroom was the worst!! The shower was so small that everytime you tried to turn around you'd knock the faucet and turn off the shower!

The neighborhood was all right and very close to the Metro.

Other than the front desk staff greeting you as you came in, the staff was pretty silent. The breakfat lady never greeted us or said a word.

I would NEVER stay here again.
