Stayed for 3 nights at the Charma - nearest Metro to the hotel is Porte De Vincennes which is literally 2 minutes away - although worth knowing Hotel is 10 minutes walk from Place De La Nation where you can buy RER train ticket to Eurodisney (Chessey) for E14 return.
The hotel is one of two hotels situated at the bottom of Rue des Maraichers - on a quiet road across from the ugliest office/government building in Paris - don't expect any views no matter what level or side of the building your room is on.
Be aware - if you stay here you will need to use the metro to get about - we walked into Paris via the Bastille and then criss/crossed the river - it was a full day sightseeing and we needed to get the metro back (our poor, blistered feet insisted).
Pros: Hotel reception is small, clean and welcoming - I found all the reception staff friendly and helpful. The hotel has a creaky old lift which is an adventure in itself but it adds to the charm - the room had clean sheets and towels...and breakfast although very basic was fresh (a roll/a croissant - jam - cereals or yoghurt if you ask and tea/coffee). Two supermarkets at end of road selling water, fruit juice etc till late at night - limited places to eat out - a few restaurants at the Nation, but a reasonably priced little pizzeria directly across the road. Also if you turn right out of the hotel and walk up Rue des Maraichers - Rue Davron has a number of coffee shops and pubs - plus if you want something cheap to eat - Ali Baba2 offers a range of kebab style food.
Cons: Rooms are very small and the walls are thin - no secrets if you want a romantic couple break. Not a lot of selection for restaurants nearby.
OVerall view - a reasonable hotel to use as a base to see Paris without breaking the bank.
