“A gem in Paris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We stayed at 6 hotels over 11 days in France. This was the first of our stay and we felt at home.

We stayed a total of 3 nights at this property. We took the Opera bus from the Airport (10.50E per person). From the bus stop, it was a 15 minute walk to the hotel. It was a bit tricky to get to with luggage, narrow roads, and the traffic.

Pros:
*Great location. Just north of the central Opera area. If you love to walk, you can be at the Louvre in 30 minutes. It took us 45 minutes one day to walk to the Eiffel Tower.
*A couple blocks away from Gare Lazare (Metro Station)
*Close to shops and restaurants (Subway was next door if desperate)
*We booked the L'Open Bus tour and one of the stops is down the street from the hotel (used this as transportation for 2 days)
*friendly staff. One of the front desk staff was so helpful in suggesting restaurants and transportation options (a gentleman who worked the night of June 14 and 15).
*Rooms were smaller than we are use to in North America but very clean and comfortable
*TV
*Daily maid service

Cons:
*No A/C so at times could be uncomfortable. They offer a fan and windows open
*No irons (no hotel in France offers irons so pack neatly)
*Sometimes satellite not available when watching tv (If English speaking, you are out of luck; only French channels)
*Had to leave our key at the front desk every time we left the hotel (staff were trustworthy but I lock my suitcases no matter where I stay)
*bring your own wash cloth. All France hotels only provide bath towels and hand towels.

We really liked this hotel and would definitely stay again if visiting Paris in the future.

Hello YTOGIRL,
Thanks for your review about our hotel.
It was nice to meet you during during your stay.
We are happy to notice that you took advantage of your stay and you had a great stay in Paris while amongst us.
Yes our hotel is situated in a very lively place in Paris around Opera-Bastille where you can easily find restaurants, cafés, cinémas etc
You can as well explore easily the whole city.
The summer is the perfect season to discover Paris although hot temperature.
See you soon in France !.

~100 euro per night (without Breakfast) in June in downtown Paris (near Grands Magasins). Rather clean, staff was nice, wifi worked. 1 minus: no air-conditioned in the room. Good that I don't really bother the heat.
Like most of Paris middle price hotel: rooms are small, elevator is tiny, streets are busy.

Little rooms but clean with everything that you could need! We found the reception staff lovely and helpful!

Good location & walking distance to most attractions! Close by train station was perfect for our trip to Disney!

Would happily stay again for the price we paid!

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Found this place very welcoming and the staff helpful. It was very small and compact but all you needed as a base while exploring. Practically next to the station but also not too far to walk to all the main attractions. As it was a called a budget hotel, there was of course no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and, more importantly for us, no air conditioning.

Room Tip: The lift was tiny (it said it could hold 3 persons but 2 was plenty!) so unless you don't mind s...
