Reviewed 12 July 2008

This is a small neighborhood property with clean rooms, new bathrooms and a very French atmosphere. A bit far from most attractions but in a real neighborhood, with non-touristy restaurants, shops etc.
Highly recommended for budget travelers who are not new to France.

We chose this hotel over similarly-priced hotels recommended by a reliable guidebook due to how cozy the rooms looked in the pictures. Our mistake. In the future we'll stick with the guidebook.

The Good: close to the metro, low price, clean sheets, lots of hot water. The Bad: shabby room with "garage sale" furniture and dirty carpet (The magic they worked with the dim, warm lighting in their pictures hides much). The Ugly: dingy, slightly greasy-feeling towels (This, on top of the 'bad' mentioned above, was enough to make us try to find another hotel. When we were unable to on such short notice, we went out and bought towels to use during our stay at what my husband began calling 'Le Dump'.

My husband would rate it terrible, but I'm going with "okay, but with problems" due to the 'good' above and the fact you can work around the 'ugly'. I would not stay there again, but it'll work if you need something cheap (although I'm sure there are better hotels at a similar price) and plan to spend minimal time in the room (be sure to bring your own towels).

Lesson: Don't trust the pictures presented by hotels.

This reasonably priced, small hotel is conveniently located near a metro station in a quiet location near the eiffel tower. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfasts delightful. The owner, Peter, was very helpful in planning our daily activities. I will stay here next time.

I stayed in this hotel last weekend. Though the room is not spacious, it's clean and tidy which is fair enough. I enjoyed the stay as the hotel is convenient to a few METRO stations. There are various restaurants around including McDonalds. The owner is friendly and helpful. I did not pay a single penny until I checked out my room.

It's conveniently located but the charm is off the rose. This hotel will do if you are a bit stuck for a place to stay but it wouldn't be my first (or second) choice.

The hotel is listed as a Hotel des Charmes according to several websites - it is not at all charming, it is a dump! The room was incredibly tiny - even for Paris, the walls were a very faded beige "wallpaper", the bathroom dingy with a toilet that didn't flush well.
We lasted one night and were lucky to find someplace else. Even at this price, there are better places.
