I reviewed this hotel whilst it was still using the Etap brand 18 months before my recent stay, finding it excellent value with good transport links.
That is still the case now it is an "Ibis budget" - with easy access to the Metro station, or the option to take a tram to the Cité Uninversité stop and pick up the RER direct to the centre of Paris or the Gare Du Nord. Although the hotel was full, there was never any noise issue.
My only concern was the new security mechanism - where you are give a piece of paper with both your room number and a PIN number for access - which has several issue. If you mislay that piece of paper you are giving the finder access to your room. If you pop down to reception or the restaurant you have to remember to take the code with you - and your reading glasses to read it! There was no need requirement to check out - so you might still have a concern someone could get access to your room whilst it was still allocated to you.. I'd much prefer some physical sign of security.
There is also no sign of security in reception - the reception desk is well away from the front door, so it's easy to access the lifts without being checked - and the lifts operate without any code.
