We saw a cheap deal in the paper and booked a trip for a pre-Christmas treat, this was the hotel in the offer, we saw the reviews and thought we'd go for it; we weren't disappointed.
OK, so the standard rooms are tiny, if you're traveling with two big bags you'll struggle to get them both into the room comfortably, seriously, that's how small they are!
That really is the only negative, our room was immaculately clean, the shower was great and the service was friendly and helpful. The area was quiet at night, so quiet we could sleep with the window open. Breakfast was pretty much as expected, coffee, croissants and cold cuts, enough to see you through to lunch.
Like everyone has said the hotel is right near the metro. Get off at Daumesnil (on line 8), head to the 'face au 199' exit, turn around and it's right there, easy. From the hotel on the metro you'll be in the city in around 20 minutes, if you want to ride all the way to the Arc de Triomphe, that'll be about 30 minutes.
All in all a good base to explore the city; recommended.
