“Good value for Paris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The location is excellent, walking distance from the main rail stations and into town, and a metro station is one minute around the corner as well. The staff were friendly and polite. Breakfast was good; fresh orange juice, cereal, croissants and fresh bread.

We were upgraded to a top floor room with a small balcony and did not experience any problems with noise. The room was clean and modern. The bathroom was a bit cramped and the shower was quite difficult for my 6'3" boyfriend to get under but that's probably to be expected given the price and location. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. The hotel cat was a nice (sleepy) bonus!

This hotel was recommended by a family member who had used it on a number of business trips and we were not disappointed! Not only are the rooms spacious and clean, the staff very welcoming and helpful, but it was also excellent value for 2 adults and 2 children (7 and 5yrs) in a family room.
It has a family atmosphere and old-fashioned French charm, (if a little careworn). The reception staff we happy to indulge our boys attempts at practising their French and stroking the hotel cat provides a good pastime whilst waiting in the lobby.
It is in a quiet, side street location in the 2me Arrondissement which means many key sights in 1re Arrondissement are within walking distance and also has easy access to 3 metro lines,(3,8&9) restaurants, cafés (check out Le Pain de la Bourse, which despite some negative reviews, provided us with an excellent breakfast) and shops.
We will be sure to book this hotel again for our next trip to Paris.

The hotel staff were very pleasant, they particularly helped me out when they printed museum tickets for me and when I needed an iron. Both aren't included as such in their list of facilities but they provided me with them all the same. The hotel room was very clean, small but not cramped, with furniture that wasn't outdated. Having free wi-fi is a big plus. Overall, good location, good price and good service.

We booked this hotel on our check-in date as we missed out flight and we desperately needed a place to stay. We got the last room available which was on the top floor (where the lift in fact just goes to the floor below and we had to (with help of the staff) carry our luggage up the narrow stairs to our room.

The room was decent, although without air-conditioning. In fact if you open the window you would feel that the weather was in fact very nice at night. Yet we felt opening the window was unsafe given we stayed on the top floor and people could literally climb into out room from the roof. Ended up just opened the ventilation window in the toilet (as it's small and definitely noone could climb through it) and were able to have a good night of sleep without the air-con. The room itself is clean but the furniture (desk and chair in particular) needs to be replaced as they just looked old!

Location-wise it's located in a very convenient location. Surrounded by lots of eateries and is fairly close to the metro station. We did have very local and delicious food around the hotel (we just chose the one with most locals and went in) and it was cheap too!

We can't complain the price as we booked on the same-day booking (EUR 98 for a night without breakfast). Not sure if it would be cheaper if we book in advance tho. (as we previously stayed at another hotel in the area and it was just cheaper with air-con!)

Overall a happy experience! (but not so happy missing the flight!)

Room Tip: People with huge luggage should not choose the room on the top floor as you have to carry your stuff...

Our Kiwi family of four (9 and 11yo) stayed for three days in Room 14. Everything we needed. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were a hassle-free start to the day and gave the kids the energy required for hitting the streets. Superb location. 10 mins walk to Louvre. 2 mins to metro. And lots of food options from take out meals on the run to brasseries and bistros. Great value. Book and enjoy
