Reviewing this on the basis that they market themselves as a 2-star hotel, it's perfect!
Great service: We arrived a bit early (and hadn't given notice) and our room wasn't ready. We were told we could leave our luggage at the hotel, no problem. Had coffe and a croissant at the next door bakery, took a walk past a nice park down to Arc de Triomphe, subway back again, and by the time we got back to the hotel, our room was ready and they had even put our suitcases in the room!
We had a nice room with a french balcony toward the street. The street may have some traffic during daytime, but at night it was pretty silent (and the doors are pretty soundproof). Two bakeries close by, a small one next door, and a slightly larger one at Rue Larribe (between the hotel and Villiers metro station). Small grocery store across the hotel, (mind the hotel room has no fridge).
Nice, clean bathrooms, which seemed fairly new (we had a room with a shower - nice pressure).
Small steep stairway in the hotel, floor space could fit two small suitcases, but I would probably think twice if I was going there with heavy loads of luggage. They do have a tiny elevator though.
They were doing maintenance in the hallway when we were there, but there was no noise that bothered us, and maintenance has to bee done, so I'm not going to complain about that! Better to do it now than during high season I assume.
All in all, a wonderful and charming non-chain 2-star hotel, with excellent service and great value for money! Free wifi is always a bonus too.
By the way, I stumbled upon a street market in Rue Levis next to Villiers metro station, very nice and charming.
