Nice stay in this sweet hotel. It is located near the metro. The avenue is very nice with many little shops, grocery store, restaurants etc. On sundays it turned into a market place and I found the area very comfortable and safe.

Staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. They all were ready to help in English. We ate breakfast in the hotel and it was nice but simple with croissant, fresh fruits, tea, yoghurt etc. Our room was very comfortable with renovated bathroom. Everything was clean and it was cleaned every day. Sleeping was very nice because this hotel was really quiet and you can't hear any traffic noise from the avenue. It took awhile to travel to the center or to Opera (about 20 min) but it was a quick ride to latin quarters. I would definitely go back.

This hotel is on a fairly quiet boulevarde in the 12th arrondissement, near the gate of the Parc de Vincennes. There are three metro stations within 600 metres and it is less than 100 metres (or yards) from the Michel Bizot metro station. The No 46 bus passes the hotel every few minutes for destinations in the central city. The owner and his wife are quiet, unassuming and very helpful. He was immediately sympathetic to our "volcano ash" travel predicament and promised to hold rooms for several days (fortunately this was not needed). The rooms are smallish but adequate, and nicely equipped and decorated. WiFi is free. The elevator is small but convenient. The breakfast at 8 Euros was a good continental selection with lots of fruit, juice and yogurt available. There is a Marchefranprix immediately behind the hotel with a good selection of cheap sundries, food and wine. There is a larger Monoprix just past the metro. We ate every night at the 'Restaurant Tramway' near the metro and found the food good and reasonably priced. Remarkably (for Paris) the restaurant staff and customers wanted to know about us and insisted on speaking English to ask about the "volcano ash crisis" and our plans. On this relatively quiet residential boulevarde one has the ability to live and meet with Parisiens on their home ground, rather than in the artificial atmosphere of the major tourist areas. Being in the SE quarter of Paris it is convenient for arrivals and departures from Gard du Nord, Gare de Lyon, and Roissy/Charles de Gaulle (a taxi took 30 minutes and cost 44 Euros with 4 people and 4 cases to CDG) There are superb patisseries just a few doors away. A cheaper street side room was still quiet.

I have stayed in a number of budget hotels in Paris over the past few years. This hotel was the nicest of the places I have stayed. It was clean and warm. The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was 8 Euros and you get coffee, fruit, yogurt, some french bread, a croissant and preserves. You can get cheaper breakfasts at some of the nearby restaurants and there are some lovely boulangeries nearby. We had breakfast 1 day for convenience and it was fine but it depends if you want to spend 8 euros for it. Its really close to the Metro so getting into Paris is fairly straightforward. Its in a nice area which has a Parisian feel to it and is away from tourists. There is a lovely (but pricey) brasserie across the road. I will stay here again on my next tripi to Paris

Planned a hectic trip to Paris and Sport Hotel was recommended by friend of a friend. From initial reviews on the internet, seemed okay. So I stayed in there along with my wife. Close to metro station & Gare de Lyon, very nice, civil and accomodating staff, clean, properly maintained and worth the money. They let us check-in much earlier than standard check-in time, offered to keep our luggage and made sure we are comfortable at the end of a long day.

My husband and I have been to Paris separately many times before but had never made the trip together. So, when it came to picking a destination for our honeymoon we chose Paris as it is one of our favourite places. We picked the Sport Hotel after doing some availability searches on the net and reading generally good reviews on Trip Advisor.

We booked a street-facing room (the cheapest) but when we got there were put in a quiet courtyard-facing room (should have been more expensive option but we were charged the cheaper rate). Room was very clean, had all the essentials for a 3 night stay and was very quiet. The staff were very polite and helpful, even when their English was not fluent.

Hotel is located very close to Michel Bizot Metro Station but also within few minutes walk of alternative Metro Stations (Porte Doree & Daumesnil). Takes about 20 minutes to get into central Paris by Metro, and CDG Airport took us just over 1 hour by Metro/RER (easy journey, not very expensive).

In the immediate area of the hotel there is everything you could need - banks/ATM, Monoprix supermarket across street near Metro, several boulangeries/patisseries, McDonalds, loads of cafes/restaurants, pharmacy, and some really lovely shops. This area is where real Parisians live so there is no over-priced tourist tat. Eating out in the local area is recommended as there is lots of choice within a few minutes walk and it is not as expensive as the central Paris tourist areas. We loved the Japanese restaurant Sakura (Turn left out of hotel, cross one street and it is next to fruit/veg shop). We sat outside and ate some gorgeous Sushi, very attentive and polite service. We felt very safe walking in this neighbourhood at night.

To summarize, if you want a base to explore Paris and don't need fancy views or luxury rooms then this is a great choice. Paris hotels are always pricey and the rooms small but if you stay here you definitely get more for your money, as long as you don't mind a little Metro travel to get to the sights. You get to experience the real Paris and get away from the crowds of tourists, which is a real bonus. A very pleasant stay and we will definitely go back there next time we want a place to stay in Paris.

We just came back from Paris (sep. '08).
The hotel was great!
We took the superiour room, which was located at the 5th floor, and its window wasn't directed toward daumesnil street, so the room was very quiet.
It cost 90 uero per day not including breakfast.
The room was very clean and every day it was cleaned and new towels were placed (they dont have a curtain in the shower so they also needed to sweep all the water from the floor, wich they did).
The room was good size, we didn't have any 'motion problems' inside it like i heard other hotels have.
My only problem is that the hotel is located a bit far from most of the tourist attractions, so we needed in the morning and in the evening to stay a little bit more on the Metro, but its not a big deal to me.

It was an ok stay, the rooms didn't look quite like the ones on the hotel's website.

The things that bothered me:

1.The bed was short! If you're over 1.80m tall your feet will hang in the air.

2.a lot of dust on the carpet floor and everywhere in the room (maybe because of the boulevard in front) although the cleaning lady came everyday and wiped all clean. The carpet still looked kinda dirty, bring your slippers.

The nice things:

1.WiFi for free
2.Room cleaning every day, nicely done bed & very clean bathroom
3.24h reception
4.Very nice, picturesque neighborhood, a perfect 'boulangerie' or pastry shop 100m to the right as you exit the hotel, with amazing products, highly recommended instead of the 7 euro continental breakfast offered at the hotel which isn't worth it. There was also a convenience store with all kinds of stuff, a huge flower shop that just looked nice, a grill place just downstairs that watered out mouths in the morning, as we opened the window. There is also a very nice park nearby worth a walk if you have time.
5.Good transportation to the city center (about 20min by metro)
6.Hotel's building was nice, old and a bit narrow, claustrophobic, but in a nice way. The weirdest lift i've seen so far.
7.Flyers with info at the lobby, might prove useful.

As a side note, some of the staff didn't speak very good english so if you know french, it helps. They were friendly and nice though.

Overall, it's an enjoyable part of the city and a decent place for the price.
