“Great location, great hotel”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I stayed in this hotel during a city trip in Paris and I enjoyed my staying a lot. The location is very good, in a safe residential area but with restaurants and bars nearby; the metro is at few minutes walking. The hotel rooms are modern and clean, with all facilities inside. The breakfast is good and various. The staff is very kind and welcoming.

THe location of hotel is totally off form where actual paris is... One has to take a metro from a station first which is quite a walking distance. Most of the things in the night would shut down here. The good thing about the hotel is it's breakfast. It had variety of things ranging from breads, croissants, yogurts, coffee/tea, scrambled eggs.
In the same price range you can get many hotels in Paris. Paris is well connected with metro so one doesn't have to worry much about the location and can definitely lookout for a cheaper hotel as this hotel has nothing much to offer. Paris is so beautiful that nobody wants to return back to their hotels. So don't spend too much on your hotel.

The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast, which in my deal was included in the price. This was the best breakfast ever, with the most variety, of all the hotels in the lower price range that we have stayed at in Paris. And the location is ok, no neighbourhood that you need to be afraid of.
The rooms, on the other hand, are nothing special. The little that there is in the way of furniture is fairly basic. There are no great views to any side, not even from the highest floors as far as I could tell. The hotel advertises WiFi, but you only get a signal on the ground floor in the lobby (or in some corners of the breakfast room) - NOT in your room (at least that was the case during our visit). The people at the reception were nice and friendly.
Best to prepare your arrival well and locate the hotel on a map with help of the internet. Not many locals in that area know the hotel, because it is not situated along a major road, but in a smaller side street.

Room Tip: Depends on your preferences. Ask at the reception ! If internet access from within your room is ver...

Staff are nice and helpful. The room is comfortable. The bed sheet had some spots on it. The toilet sink was blocked and started to drip. For the rest, I have no major complains. Budget hotel for rest after long days/nights touring in Paris.

This is not a fancy hotel but a comfortable place for rest and sleep in beautiful Paris. When in Paris, there is really no need to look for a fantastic hotel, just a clean and comfortable place to wind down at the end of the day and this hotel serves that. I spent most of the day + night out in the city only back late and am just happy to have a place to go to at the end of the day at an affordable price. I got a single room - it came with a super single size mattress - decent as I am petite Asian. The size of the room was decent too with a small bathroom again appropriate by my standards.It is a cosy little hotel and serves pretty good breakfast I thought - a plus is breakfast is included into the room prices. Breakfast includes: cold cuts, cereals, juice, great coffee, scramble eggs, yougurt, fruits, bread...not too bad for a budget hotel! Subway is about 7 mintues walk away...remember a map when you first try to find the hotel. Having said that - I didn't have a map when I reached there early in the morning but still manage to find the hotel :)

Not far away from centre Paris. Walking distance from Montparnasse, Jardin du Luxembourg & Quartier Latin. Not in a main & noisy street. Can be hard to find without a map or GPS. Not new but modern & clean look. Not a large room but perfect for low-cost single traveller.
Reasonable breakfast that was included in the 80€ price for a single (Very good price in this expensive city)
Very nice staff.

I recently stayed in this hotel for a five night business stay. The hotel is conveniently placed for public transport so is a good base. Reception staff are helpful but the hotel is basic and in need of a refurb. Carpets are worn and in places look a bit mangy. The rooms are ok, small and fairly basic with little storage but as I spent little time in the hotel it was ok. Continental breakfast was served each morning but there were no other meal options available. There were plenty of restaurants close by. There is no bar or tea and coffee facilities in the hotel which is a real pity and would make all the difference.
In conclusion the hotel was ok for what I paid and was a good base for my trip.
