We (me+wife) stayed at this hotel for 4 nights this autumn, and tried to choose the best value for money.
Our room, 41 (on the top floor) was ready for us, however the window curtain was hanging on a thread and at first i really thought it's gonna fall on my head if i try to open the window. Luckily that didnt happen :). By the way, there is no air-con in the hotel, which makes it a real pain in summer for those with allergies and other breathing problems.
Additionally, the room was REAL tight. It was barely twice the size of the WC, where i STRUGGLED to wash my hands without hitting the wall with my butt. Comparing with similar 3-star hotel rooms in spain, egypt and turkey, this one was the smallest. The shower and other room equipment was OK. Same can be said for the breakfast - for 7 eur/person u get tea/coffee/hot-choc/juice , croissans, different bakery goods, yogurts and some kellogg's. Pretty typical french breakfast as i understood. The hotel staff was real nice and friendly, helped with finding one's way in the city and giving valuable advice on sightseeing. Some of the workers had little to none english skill tho :)
Next, the location is excellent. It takes less than 5 minutes to get to the nearest metro station, Gaite, where u can access the vast network of trains to reach pretty much any destination in the city as well as the suburbs. Additionally, there are a lot of small shops, cafes and restaraunts nearby. The whole neigbourhood is quiet and peaceful, which is kinda predictable considering a CEMETERY just behind the hotel xD. But seriously, it only plays on the positive side for the matter.
All-in-all, i think this is a nice hotel for couples traveling on a bugdet, solo travellers and those seeking the best location for the smallest fee.
Hope this review will help you. Have a nice trip!
