I was looking for a moderately priced hotel in a safe neighborhood and close to the metro; in that respect this hotel is fine. The staff has been uniformly friendly as well.
The disappointment comes mostly from the terrible internet service, which was worse that non existent. Every evening I wait for hours to share vacation photos and get news from home. The internet will be working for 1-2 minutes then shut down for 5 seconds, or 30 minutes. Files in transit will be lost and have to start over. Again and again we re-send, hoping the folks back home can share our nice vacation in Paris. As I write these lines, the internet has disconnected twice already.
In addition to that, I have never stayed I a hotel where they go a week without cleaning the room. They don't provide new towels when they get wet or dirty. They don't even empty the trash in your room...
Lastly, we expected to have a tub to relax in but only have a tiny shower.
Now I realize, there are worse hotels in Paris...I've stayed in some. At least we have a private bath room.
My takeaway message is that our experience would be much improved by having fresh towels easily available, a maid tidy up the room and empty the trash every couple days and by their getting a reliable, high speed internet service! Those would cost the hotel very little; the lack of these implies that the hotel management is either lazy or not particularly interested in providing a good experience for their guests.
Tips for guests - buy your food at local supermarkets and save your money for truly great dinners in the Latin quarter.
