Myself and a friend stayed here recently for the Paris marathon. As such we were not looking for a hotel for 'typical' tourist reasons but more so one based on cost and proximity to the marathon start and finish. However, I would have no hesitation in either recommending it to friends or returning myself when visiting Paris.
The location is excellent. The hotel door is right in front of the Cambronne metro station on line 6, which goes directly to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. You can also walk to the Champs élysées via Champ de Mars, Eiffel Tower and the Seine in 30 or so minutes. There are a number of restaurants and bakeries surrounding the hotel.
The hotel itself is small, clean with modern decor albeit quiet basic. However, it has everything you need and the rooms are spacious by Paris standards... we asked for twin beds and there was actually a good inch between the beds! Most rooms also have a view of the Eiffel Tower with room on the top floors having a small balcony. The passing overground metro line and road traffic did not bother us in terms of noise.
The only negative aspect I can comment on was that our room was not cleaned when we returned on the Sunday at 5:30pm, only a minor inconvenience though. Given that it is a relatively small hotel I suspect that there is only one cleaner who starts on first and finishes on top floor; we were on the 5th floor.
Overall a reasonably priced hotel in a great location.
