The hotel is nice enough for Paris and the rooms are larger than other independent hotels in Paris. However the area is a crime hotspot. I had my mobile phone stolen in a nearby restaurant and when we reported it at the police station there were six to eight people reporting stolen items!
If you do go for this hotel please keep mobile phones in front trouser pockets and handbags on laps. If you put your mobile in your coat pocket or handbag on the back of the chair, don't expect it to be there 5 minutes later! (yes someone got their handbag stolen off the back of the chair!)
I would recommend eating in another area or at the hotel to be safe, if you do stay at the hotel.
The hotel was nice enough, very big and very busy with groups (probably why the thieves target the area!). Unfortunately the person before us had smoked in the room as the room smelt of smoke and the smoke alarm had been covered up with a bag. The fact that the cleaning staff didn't notice and remove the bag, probably a sign of how much attention the cleaning staff took of the room as it was still there when we left.
Its about a 5 minute walk to the metro station and connections are pretty good.
So nice enough room and OK location for visiting Paris but please do beware of your belongings as they are likely to be stolen if they are not on you!
