We chose this hotel because it was really convenient for the Gare du Nord - it is really only a few yards from Oberkampf metro station - and also for Nation RER for direct train to Disneyland. It is also an easy walk to Place de la République with lots of restaurants to suit all tastes and wallets. The green Paris bus tour (great vfm) also stops at République. We walked through the Marais to Beaubourg Centre Pompidou easily enough.
The hotel has been recently decorated and although a little cramped, the rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. A good shower is very welcome in a Paris hotel. There was a safe and a hair dryer, but regrettably no fridge or kettle. The air conditioning worked well.
The reception was warm and friendly. It was a bit odd to have to use the stairs so much because the single lift is very small and seemingly in constant use by the staff.
Breakfast was OK, a good variety of things to eat but lacking quality (soggy out of a packet homemade croissants, for example), and certainly not up to the €13 per head.
Spend a nice hour or two in the café as you come out of Oberkampf metro and you'll have a nice comfortable quiet night's sleep and forget about the cost until you get home !
