I stayed here for 4 nights in August of 2013. I stayed in this area because it is one of my favorite areas in Paris, the 14th arrondissement. It's a very residential neighborhood that is full of Parisian charm. There are fabulous restaurants nearby (Le Moulin Vert is terrific) and it's not loaded with tourists. I stayed at this hotel because of the location. It is not far from the Alesia stop (the Pernety stop isn't that far either).
The welcome I received was extremely indifferent and it was the first time I have ever been asked to fill out an extensive paper asking details about my trip to France. I found that odd. I went up to my room and it wasn't even closely decorated like the rooms in the photos online. It's as if they didn't add the wall paper. The air conditioning is there but it does not work. It was cooler in the hallway than it was with the air conditioner on full blast. Thank God the window opened.
It is small, yes, but it is Paris and I got a good deal. The room was mostly clean, but there were areas that hadn't been dusted since Sarkozy left office.
Breakfast was the worst I have ever experienced at the Ibis chain. The tables were always dirty, the woman working there couldn't even utter "Bonjour", she just right up asked you for your room number. Food wasn't well stocked and everyone looked confused as to why they couldn't make breakfast function. The coffee machine spat out coffee that was hotter than the hubs of hades. One morning croissants weren't even stocked. Disappointing.
The hotel has such good potential, but it just falls flat. It needs a manager and employees that give even the slightest care, because they don't seem to right now.
