The room was good sized, the design was cool with a modern vibe, especially the bathroom, and the shower was hot with decent pressure. The staff was pleasant, I didn't have the breakfast so I can't comment on that. The only downside was I couldn't find any sort of thermostat/radiator, and to stay cool we had to sleep with the screenless window wide open. This was in may, so maybe they had'nt turned it on yet, but it made things very noisy.

I prefer generally to stay over by Pere Lachaise when in Paris but my favorite hotel there wasn't available so I branched out. Hotel was fine, staff was fine. Breakfast - nothing outstanding but decent. The best part was how close to the metro this hotel was situated. I wouldn't not recommend this for a stay in Paris it's just my own personal preference is not to be in this area.

I cannot give this Hotel any rating because it was SO BAD, stayed with my husband and another couple, we asked for an extra pillow and were told there were none, then the waiter pulled a round cushion from the lounge in the bar and gave it to me - it was filthy !!

The breakfast was the usual, crusty bread and jam, I asked could we have a croissant for my husband who has eating problems, the next day we got one and that was the final day so he had to go without anything to eat each day.

The rooms were filthy, dirt all over the dark blue carpet and the bathroom was a whole new experience, it was so small even for Paris, that we had to go right inside before we could shut the door and even then it was hard to shut.

I felt like sleeping with my clothes on it was so bad. There were also many undesirables leaning against the front door of the Hotel which made it a really sleazy area and quite scarey especially for women.

Never ever again !!!!!!!!!! Please be warned.

Room Tip: Don't book a room here !!!!

Friendly and helpful staff. Room was fresh and clean when we came, bed was really comfortable. Well-designed small bathroom. Free WiFi! Subway (Barbès) is near by, it's just 5 min of walking. Metro line 2 direction Porte Douphine goes directly to Triumphal Arch.
Good price for one star hotel in Paris!
