Good location. Average room but clean and comfortable. Nice to have a nice double bed in a single. The staff are really rude. There will be noise for least 2 years from the works at Forum des Halles. Would go back if nothing better available.

We stayed here for one night earlier this month. The location of the hotel ( in Les Halles) is not great. The hotel is surrounded by suspicious looking leather stores. The hotel expects guests to carry their luggage up to the reception on a narrow staircase. It is not merely uncomfortable, it is outright dangerous. The staff at the reception are rude and show no concern for anything other than collecting payment. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms at this hotel!

Oh! On the one hand its amazing how small hotels can be! and worse, how they call them hotels in the first place. On the other, hats off to their business minds to make use of such small cubicles as hotel rooms and still charge 180 Euros a night!
Beware of this disaster of a hotel. You will find the tripadvisor sticker there, but there's not lift to the reception! You will find reviews on tripadvisor, but the rooms are smaller than the home page size of the website!! Its incredibly small. The floor, table, brief case and suit case are all, the bed. If you like it... Otherwise, here comes the advise from the front desk: "If you dont find enough space in the room, you are welcome to place your suit case at the reception!" So everytime you want something (including change clothes), sneak out in darkness to the reception. How ridiculously offensive!!
My advise is: Do not go there, even at the expense of not being able to go to Paris! There are much better ways of doing that...

Room Tip: Just do not go there!

Located on the doorstep of the Chatelet Les Halles Metro station that brings you from CDG (Roissy) airport, this hotel was well priced by Paris standards. The room was comfortable and clean but not fancy. Reception is one flight upstairs which is a bit of a challenge if you have large luggage but there is an elevator from that level upwards. The man at Reception helped me with my bigger bag when he saw me struggling. Staff spoke some English and were happy to store my luggage for half a day after I checked out. WiFi was free.

i stayed there last week for two night and left with a discomfort sensation. First the staff at the reception were very strange and at certain time even rude. The "comfort room" that we were supposed to have didn't look like the one we saw at the pictures shown on booking.com. The room was generally clean but the extremely old furniture (missing parts) made it look dirty. The blankets were old and with cigarette burning marks and didn't smell good. They didn't put any shampoo in the toilette( the smallest toilette i ever seen. you could get hurt by turning around). And the stairs were terrible: like dirty and not very stable. The lift was so small. And we payed 100 euros per night.

The only good thing was the location but you can find other better hotel around the zone with this price.

I will never stay there again.

This hotel is less than one minute from Lescot exit at Chatelet-Les Halles. The room had inadequate heating for freezing weather. We found all staff extremely helpful. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants - a superb location.

We booked a 3 night stay at Agora, a few weeks ago. The room was very small, but it had all we needed, since we only slept there at night, and we were out most of the time. No complaints about the daytime staff, they were very nice and helpful. The evening staff was a different story. We asked for clean towels, and help with dinner reservations, and I had to go down to the front desk for these. So, not only was it an inconvenience to me, the guy had an unfriendly disposition. If you are ok with an unhelpful night staff, then you will have no problems here. the location is good for Notre dame, subway and st germain.
