you can reach the hotel musset using the parisian transport system - despite it actually being located just outside the city, in the little town of Malakoff.
After trying various routes to Malakoff ¨- I found that the easiest way to get to the hotel was by taking the metro to Porte d Orleans at the end of the number 4 metro line and catching the number 126 from the bus station just along from the metro station. A T+ metro carnet ticket should cover the journey home from central Paris.
The hotel has been partially renovated since my last visit and the breakfast area has been moved and is much bigger. some of the bedrooms have also been overhauled.
The hotel now has a higher star rating from the local tourist board. You can browse online using the wifi service provided by the hotel from your phone or ipad etc. and there is a coin operated internet machine in the hotel lobby - which isn´t too expensive to log on from. If you need a snack or a drink there is also a machine in the hotel reception area from which you can grab a coffee, tea, cold drink or snack.
The staff are just as friendly as before and the same receptionist was present as last time. She speaks in several languages and has a good knowledge of the local area and the transport system and is always happy to help out with any queries that you have.
In the local area there are French bakeries, a supermarket a pharmacy and other stores. There is also a market 5 mins walk away which runs several times a week. You can buy lots of local produce and foods at the market as well as clothes and toys and other goodies.
I would be happy to stay at this hotel again as it is do-able on a budget and yet offers all the Frenchness that you would expect from a visit to Paris. It is also as accessible and takes about the same amount of time to get to as other more expensive hotels with a Parisian post/ zip code.
breakfast costs extra - but this is quite typical in France.
