Hotels in Paris are expensive. We decided to stay at this one in the suburb but only a 20-minute ride away on the Metro.
As others have mentioned, breakfast is not good value at 18 Euros. Disappointingly, even Marriott Platinum members are not provided free breakfast!
There is a supermarket (called Monoprix) just 2 mins walk to the right of the hotel and we bought juice, pastry, milk etc and stored stuff in the bar refrigerator in the room. Our room (room 401) had a nice patio with 2 tables and we had breakfasts and evening cocktails out there.
The location is very safe and the Metro stop just 10 mins walk away. I found a self-service laundry just 5 mins away. There are some small shops and lots of bars in the area too. There is an ATM just across the street and a pharmacy nearby. Remember that in Europe, the opening hours are not the same as in the US and places close around 7 or 8 pm at the latest.
Hint: If you buy a beer at the hotel's pantry, it'll cost you 4 Euros for a 12 oz can. At the store just outside the hotel, I paid 2 Euros for a large 16 oz can.
Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful with directions.
An added benefit was that it was very convenient to travel to Versaille. Just 2 stops on the metro and an RER train direct to Versaille. The travel tickets are valid for the metro, RER trains and buses.
I would not stay in Paris city as hotels are expensive. I'd rather stay a short metro ride away and this hotel is hard to beat.
