“Stayed there twice and always glad I did”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

They have a website. If you want to reserve....do it via their website. Once I made a mistake ...I ended up with agoda.com....they charge more! So please go to their official website directly!

The first time I stayed there was winter of 2010 ...it was late in the night and I hadn't made any hotel reservations. It was the only hotel in the block which is not more than 100euros! I as really relieved to find it. The staff usually can speak English and the rooms are quite small though but will-do if you are travelling Paris for sight seeing. It was clean and near a metro station (argentine) if you take time to walk around, there are many cages nearby to choose from. You will really like it there if you want an easy morning-after breakfast because it has a pastry shop outside. On my second visit, I stayed there again. Good value for money and really practical plus you are near trocadero( walking distance-where you can sit and stare at Eiffel tower just right across). Incase it is check out time but you still have a bit of time to roam around before your flight or train ride, they are cool with you leaving your luggage near the reception.

We've been there for a couple of nights. Receptionists were nice and friendly, rooms were clear, quiet and capable of guesting also the baby bed we brought with us. Position is excellent with the Metro 10 meters away from the hotel. The hotel has no elevator.

Definitely a very good option!

We stayed at this hotel just for one night - at the end of our trip through Loire valley. We were looking for not too expensive place close to Porte-Maillot. The hotel's location is actually great - in front of the metro station, at 10 minutes walk to Porte-Maillot, really close to Champs-Élysées as well. If you have to take the shuttle from Porte-Maillot to Beauvais airport, that is the best place to stay.
The room was small, clean towels and bedsheets. The carpet was a little bit smelly but however, at that price and just for one night, it was not such a big deal for us :)
I think it is good value for money, especially at that location in Paris.
Finally, I would like to mention that the man at the reception was very kind. We had to check out at 4:30 at the morning. In order to unlock the hotel's door that early for us, the receptionist was sleeping on the couch at the reception. We did appreciate this!

Cheapest hotel we could find in the area. Argentine metro stop was in front of the hotel. We landed at Paris Beauvais-Tille airport from Madrid (Ryanair) and a 45min shuttle bus took us to Porte Maillot, Paris. It was only a 10min walk to the hotel from there. The rooms were small and had no air conditioning or ventilation. Our room was #114 facing the street. If you opened the windows, you would not be able to sleep at night due to traffic noise and the cigarette smell from the restaurant in front. The bed was comfortable and the toilets were clean though cramped. TV was small and no english channels. The room had a small fridge. If you don't mind the accommodations which we really didn't because it was just a place to rest up for the next day adventure, then this hotel is ok. We're not picky. Don't eat breakfast in the hotel for E9.00. Not worth it. The front desk spoke english and helped us out with directions. Wifi was not free. One thing I really liked is that they kept our bags for us after checkout since we had time to walk around Paris before our flight back to Madrid.

Around the area, there were a lot of good restaurants, a self-service wash, internet cafe and within walking distance to Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees. We even walked from the Eiffel back to the hotel.

Romantic Paris - this hotel was not.

I do not understand the reviews on this site. I did not find the location wonderful, or the hotel, wonderful. I suppose you could say the hotel was saved by its proximity to a metro station, but that is about it.

We were here for four nights in August and I really wish we would have stayed elsewhere. Our room was very small, and travelling in Europe you become used to this so it wasn't our biggest complaint. The room itself, although tidy, smelled like it hadn't been properly cleaned in a long time. It was very musty and not a welcome place to return to.

The shower was teeny and there were no toiletries provided.

The wifi was the most expensive we experienced on our trip. 9 euros a day.

Although the location was directly above the Argentine station, staying here you really miss out on the quaintness and romance of Paris.The street the hotel is located on is extremely wide (6 lanes, or 4 large lanes) and busy. It is like staying at a roadside hotel.

Stay elsewhere.
Stay elsewhere.

The rooms are small and a bit dated, the bathrooms tiny, but the location is just perfect. We were in Paris for 3 days only and we walked everywhere, the location was so central. Breakfast was excellent, too, with the croissants coming from the yummy bakery next door, I guess. I would stay there again anytime.

I was trapped in Paris during the volcano so my short trip was extended. All 15 nights at this hotel. The rooms were clean, typical smaller European rooms, no air conditioning, the staff was helpful and the location was fantastic. The Argentine stop, Line 1, is only feet from the front door. Line 1 takes passengers from La Defense, to Arc de Triomphe, Louvre, etc... Breakfast was typical, 8 euros for a continental breakfast: coffee, bread, butter, croissant.

Best Features: location, good price for Paris
Negatives: somewhat small rooms, the walls are a bit thin, no air conditioning

Overall, if you are looking for a np frills, European hotel in a great location, and budget friendly for Paris, this is a good choice. In hot weather, I think the rooms may be uncomfortable without air conditioning.
