The location is great; next to a Metro station at the Place de Clichy, with lots of good restaurants. (Try seafood at Wepler.) Montmartre is in walking distance, and I even rolled my luggage to the hotel from the Gare du Nord (1 1/2 miles away), past the Moulin Rouge. Just across the street from the JG is a supermarket, "Simply City," with daily fresh fruits, tarts, and even fresh pastries (packaged), plus Le Bonne Maman jams and packaged Roquefort for you to buy to take home on your last day. ATMs abound. The staff is supremely nice and accommodating. I arrived during a July 2012 heat wave of daily temperatures in the 90s. Most cheaper Parisian hotels have no air conditioning and here even electric fans were scarce. But after a couple of days, good floor fans suddenly appeared in my and others' rooms, and at the front desk. I suspect management took pity on us all and got us new fans. Good for them. When I needed a computer print-out of a voucher for a tour to Mont Saint Michel I arranged online the night before the trip, the front desk had me just email them and they printed it out. They also let me into my room a couple of hours early when I first arrived (they will of course also take your luggage). I didn't try the 11 euro breakfast; it looked pretty good, though not really a bargain. The main drawback: the rooms are small, and so are the bathrooms (but they are private bathrooms). Bigger than Hong Kong rooms. Excellent value. Will change its name next year. Merci, chere Martine et Alexandra, pour votre service!
