This was a hard review to score because the hotel is (IMHO) more than a 3 star but not quite a 4 (again, IMHO).
It is vey conveniently located right across the street from the Metro (Line 5). I have stayed here a couple of times and the staff have always been very friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and functional and the ones I've stayed in have always been quiet. Some aspects are a bit 'tired' though - e.g. peeling paint in the bathroom and narrow, old-fashioned corridors, but it's certainly nothing too bad. There is free Wifi.
Continental breakfast is usually included in the room rate and was pretty good: fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, bread/toast, ham, cheese etc. Some of the toast bread was a bit stale but apart from that it was pretty good and there is a nice selection of teas.
There is no restaurant on-site (except for breakfast) but there are plenty of places to eat in Place d'Italie - staff are happy to advise. There is a small bar at the front of the hotel in the reception area for a quick pre-dinner drink or a night-cap.
Note that there is no safe in the room. Not really a problem if you are staying for one night but might be if you were staying for longer.
But all in all, a pleasant place to stay in a good location.
