“Nice little boutique hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Right next to metro!
Only 15- 20 mins on metro to the centre.
Quiet, clean, comfortable and good value.
Great bakery next door, nice little neighborhood with nice little restuarants and good people.
We enjoyed our stay as it was great value for money and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 days whilst visting paris from England by car for new years with my wife.
Just going to bullet point to what to expect.
.Easy to find by car with satnav
.Carpark was full so we had to go elsewhere, 29euro for 24hrs
.Hotel is really small and needs a new lick of paint.
.Baggage room make sure you have padlocks on your suitcase
.Staff are friendly and are ok at speaking english
.Spiraled stairs are quite narrow, the lift will get 2 people and case each in at a squeeze.
.Gym has a broken rower and multigym in a tiny room.
.Rooms are small but clean. bathroom had a shower your towels and bins are changed everyday with your beds made.
.NO KETTLE or TEA/COFFEE in the rooms but does have a minibar.
.The Walls are paper thin i could hear the next room
.FREE WIFI is good and is a decent speed
.Metro is on the doorstep, buy a day pass for 7 euros unlimited from 0530-0530hrs between zones 1-2 only. Which covers most of the paris tourist sites ask at the ticket office they helped us . The metro system is amazing theres no more waiting than 4 minutes for a train.
The hotel is a little out the way and basic but its somewhere to sleep after a busy day site seeing.

It's in the last stop of 4 train, so, you will always get sit because it's also the first stop when you are going to Odeon, or the right bank, only takes about 15 mins to Odeon and around 15 mins to Notre Dame. There is a great patisserie on the corner, their croissant is the best in the world( But I forgot the name) The room itself is clean and big, it's the biggest one I had ever stayed in Paris. The staff is ok, considering about the price, I would definitely recommend people to stay there

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend as a group of 4 girls. Firstly it's really easy to get to, a metro station is just outside the front door. We thought the decor was really funky. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfy. The only thing, that could be a disadvantage for some people, is that it is on a busy road so if you have a room onto this road it can be quite noisy. I would recommend taking ear plugs if you are light sleeper. Personally I was able to sleep through it but one of my friends couldn't.
It was a very good value hotel as well. Although it's not right in the centre, the metro is so good that it doesn't take long to get anywhere.
We decided not to get breakfast- at 12 euros we just went to a bakery across the road for a croissant. There was a fridge in our room as well.
The wifi wasn't very good either, often we couldn't connect or not for very long but it wasn't a big deal. We were there to see Paris!

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the road if you're a light sleeper.

This hotel is a nice place for a couple of days. Reasonably priced and excellent location if you want to catch the metro to see the sights as a station is immediately outside the entrance. Surprisingly no street noise in the room we stayed in. Breakfast, however, was not good. The room was cafeteria style with cold scrambled eggs tucked away in one corner with some suspicious looking sausages, also cold. No other "hot" food on offer. The selection overall was not good and certainly not worth the money. You should go for a walk and grab something much nicer around the corner, up or down the road. We booked via a website and got a very good rate so overall not too bad.

We traveled here in July of 2011. This hotel is very conveniently located--literally right on a metro stop-- so it's easy to find and a good base for exploring Paris. The receptionist was welcoming and very helpful when we needed assistance getting around the city. The place is quirky and has a funky decor (black and pink in the lobby). Every room we saw was a bit different, so it makes for an interesting stay. Breakfast was great. Be sure to visit the bakery next door!

This super hotel is based in the 14me arrondisement but easily accessible to central Paris and its attractions. I stayed at the front of the hotel which was pretty quiet considering the major roads outside. Exceptionally clean and spacious room. Friendly staff and fabulous value. Wished I could have stayed far longer.
