This hotel was the cheapest central hotel I could find on a June weekend in Paris, with 3 or more stars.
Let me get my little gripe out the way first. I contacted the hotel before I made the booking to check there was at least an English news channel to watch the DDay commemorations on, I was advised by email that thete was BBC World and CNN in the room. Great I thought so I proceeded with the booking.
On arrival at the hotel I found there to be no english channels. I immediately rang reception who advised they only had those channels downstairs in the lobby and not rooms. I advised this was not what was stated in my email. The receptionist advised she would get someone to turn the channel on. 3 nights later this was still not done. Luckily the Canal + channel had a few english language films on and the wifi was very strong and stable, so I could watch the news on my ipad.
The room itself was very small but did the job and was furnished nicely. Our room502 looked out over the rooftops, which was very nice. Due to the small size of the hallway, it was quite noisy when the maid was cleaning in the morning, but I never heard noise from any other rooms.
The bathroom was spotless and well equipped. The location very close to Brochant station. There was lots of brasseries, patisseries and shops locally, so it was ideally located. The area on first look might look a bit ethnic, however it is certainly quite a middle class neighbourhood and very safe. We walked home from Sacre Couer area on two nights in about 15 mins and couldnt have felt safer.
The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. Would happily stay at hotel again and reccommend to anyone.
