Found this hotel, based on the good reviews, when going myself for a week end in Paris with our three daughters (9, 12, 16).
Did not expect too much, but was already during the booking pleasantly surprised about the clear email communication, focusing on our needs, that made us feel very welcome. The hotel also quickly arranged a a near by garage parking place (18 € / night).
Arriving by car using a navigation system was relatively smooth. The area is a bit of a maze with one way streets. It is possible to stop and unload the car directly in front of the hotel.
We had already received the access codes to the hotel (the reception seems to be closed at night time and during week ends) and could within 30 seconds pick up keys for the apartment and the garage. The garage is ca 400 meters from the hotel.
The property is very well maintained. It is clean with new paint and looks nice and welcoming.
Our apartment was on the 3rd floor facing the quiet backyard. A very small elevator for 2 not too big persons exists. The kids loved it. The stairs are equally fast though.
The apartment had 2 relatively spacious rooms, one small yet well-equipped kitchen including a dish washer, a stylish and modern bath, and a hallway connecting the bath and the rooms.
The first room was entered directly when opening the apartment door, and offers a sleeping sofa and a dining table. The 2nd room had 2 beds. The interiour seems to have been chosen to make the apartment look like a home rather than a hotel room. Oldest daughters commented "This is cute!" Nights were quiet and we slept very well. I did not like the beds, too hard and narrow for my taste.
We did not see any hotel staff during our stay, but had a guiding letter every day + an emergency number to call if needed. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a coffee and tea kit. A pleasant surprise was that we were encouraged to have a late check out and keep the room until Sunday afternoon.
The area has numerous small restaurants and shops. It pays off to take a walk to get an overview before deciding where to eat. It is not a touristic area. Everyone was very friendly and did their best to understand our attempts to speak French.
Metro is very close to the hotel giving quick access to downtime Paris.
In all a very pleasant stay. I wish more hotels will learn from Hotel Home Paris 16 focusing on the guests' needs.
