This hotel is definitely in more of what I would call a "suburb" of Paris. It's mostly locals out here with a few hotels in the mix. A lot of the restaurants around will be filled with Persians and not tourists. At times you feel like a bit of an outsider here (maybe this is just France in general). It could have been cleaner and the staff (not all of them) could have been a little friendlier. Info book said they had a laundry service. Went down to ask the front desk and he just said "No", I said that the info book said that you guys did offer that and he just said "No" again. He said there was a place close by but did not offer any details.The bed was comfy and clean and I definitely didn't feel weird about sleeping or relaxing in the room.Walls could have used a scrub, bathroom door coating was chipping off on the door, shower didn't drain very well, large visible pipes in the bathrooms, etc. Just kind of felt sort of basic, unfinished, or in need of an update. No AC (which I know can be common in Europe) and the room got a bit hot. They do give you a fan and the window does open. It is on a busy street that is quite loud though. I'm not a light sleeper so it was fine. The room was small but not terribly so (Amsterdam room was smaller but nicer). It's a 5 minute walk to the Nation Metro station (multiple lines) and a 1 minute walk to the Avron metro station (line 2) which will take you towards Nation or the opposite way up North to montmartre. All this being said - it's a good value for Paris. Anything closer to the city is going to cost a lot.
