We stayed here for a few nights. Location was excellent - bus stops and train station right outside. A supermarket and cafes/ restaurants were also close by. Room was basic but clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Ideal hotel for a Paris city break.

The hotel is very well located, next to the RER B station (the train that goes to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport) and a metro station. In addition, a line of the Open Tour touristic bus line stops nearby.
By Parisian standards, the hotel is good enough, with a decent price. Staff is polite and rooms are clean and well isolated. Do not expect big rooms, it is still Paris, but the area is sufficient.
The breakfast (not included) costs 10 EUR. It does not include anything heavy (like eggs or jam), only croissants, milk, coffee, yogurts and orange juice. Anyway, there are plenty of places around, including "Indiana" and McDonalds.

Room Tip: I got a room on the 7th floor with two balconies overlooking Denfert-Rocherau Square. I think these rooms are called "Parisian"

Great location, close to Metro, convenient to get to and from the airport and around the city. We booked an AC room which was a life saver in the hot summer in Paris. Room was tiny but nice, quiet and clean. (i saw reviews saying it's noisy in the room but it has not been the case for us) Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice neighbourhood with restaurants, cafes and market. GOod walk to the Jardin du Luxemburg for a picnic. Got a view of the Eiffel tower from our room where we enjoyed the national day fireworks! High recommend this hotel especially if you are on a budget!

Room Tip: book the AC room on the higher floor

Very easy to access all the sights and airports from this hotel as the metro station (Denfert-Rochereau) is very near by (train service is very frequent!). It is easily accessible from CGD airport using the RER B and from Orly using the Orlybus. Also easy to get from Versailles from here (definitely worth a day trip). The Catacombs are also right next door and it is a 10/15 minute walk to the Luxembourg Gardens.

Rooms were simple but tidy and the beds were comfortable. Once the window is closed the sound from the road is minimal. The staff were friendly and made a good effort (in English) to try and inform you of the public transport available and the best sites to visit. Wifi worked well. Staff were happy to lock up your bags if you needed before check in/after check out.No need to purchase breakfast with the hotel as there are 2 delicious bakeries just down stairs. There are also a lot of places to dine near by. The downside would be the stairs that you need to carry your bags up to get to the reception but this is not a big deal.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the Eiffle Tower ask for a room on the top level (although the rooms are smaller than those at the bottom). We stayed on level 2 and 8 and both rooms were good (level 8 had the bonus of a lovely view!)
