Trying to avoid the 200 Euro/night hotels of the 5th and 6th arrondissement, I looked in the 11th, near the Gare de Lyon. This little hotel offered me an impeccably clean room in a quiet hotel in a nice residential neighborhood. I will return! It is a nice walk to Place Bastille, Place Republique, and Place Voltaire where I found nice small restaurants and shops. I would recommend it if you have more than a day or two and can afford the time to walk or metro over to the central tourist areas. There is a major metro line that comes to nearby Place Voltaire.
The staff was unusually helpful and friendly. The front desk arranged a last minute car to the airport; it was an excellent provider, by the way (Rased Shuttle, I believe).
My room was exceptionally clean and well maintained. I was offered a twin room because it was farther from the noise of the street and elevator. Perfect for me! Bathroom was "compact" but immaculate! In fact, everything about this hotel is compact but immaculate.
An interesting tip: right in front of the hotel is a location for renting electric cars that could be nice for a day-trip outside of Paris, Versailles, Mont St Michel, Parc Disneyland, etc.More
