You will either love or hate the Alma Mésnil. The hotel is in a great location (half way between the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe). The triple room I stayed in was very spacious and clean with a street view and large full length opening windows. However, I did feel that the place could be doing with an update. The staff are very pleasant and willing to help. I think I would stay again because of its location, and because there are only a small number of rooms it had quite a nice atmosphere. I would recommend going to the Alma Mésnil with an open mind, knowing that you won't be staying in the Ritz, however it is somewhere to sleep that is clean and that's all you really need on a budget in Paris.

A poorly maintained hotel in a good location. The beds are hard and cheap. Our double bed was two singles pushed together. the second bed was a 4" thick mat on a poorly contructed pedestal. The other furniture in the room was old and shabby. The carpet was worn and dirty. It was almost like camping. The breakfast was overpriced and just plain bad.

A good point is that all but one of hte staff spoke fluent english. The one that didn't spoke english with a heave accent making it almost impossible to understand her. She did, however, speak fluent Italian with a barely detectable accent.

Overall it was adequate for the price and the location was outstanding. The cheap rate and the location didn't make up for the shabbiness of the hotel.

OK, as others have said it is a little old and dated but in some ways that's a part of its charm. There is no lift, so if your luggage is heavy it can be a problem, and most of the staff are quite helpful, although we did have one lady give us the completely wrong directions to the nearest metro station.
If you go in summer you might want to take some bug spray for the mosquitoes, but other than that it was good value for the money and in a good location in terms of the metro and sights. (We walked to the Arc de Triomphe every morning with our children in tow.)

We were travelling with 3 kids. Hotel was one of the few which could accomodate all of us in one room. We stayed in a quadruple and had an extra bed - room was large enough with ensuite bathroom. Room on top floor (63 steps with no lift)

Kids loved the sweets in the reception area. Staff corteus and very helpful. There is a mini-market just a few metres down the road, a Mc Donalds down the same road, and an Italian Restaurant just in front. Close by on the mainroad is a shop selling great baguettes.

Decor is rather out of date but room and bathroom were cleaned daily. Situated within walking distance from Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe.

Breakfast buffet consisted of bread, cereals juice, milk, yoghurts, jams, cheese ham etc. tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Would definitely consider if were were to visit Paris again.

Although the location of this hotel was nice, the hotel was horrible, it must have not been upgraded for the past 100 years. DO NOT stay in this hotel.

We are a family with small children from NJ, USA.

Positives:

(1) The best thing about it is it is one of the affordable quad room hotels in Trocadero location (which is walking distance from Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe as well as the starting point for Red Bus service).

(2) The Staff were very pleasant , helpful, efficient and courteous.

(3) The Room and toilet were spacious and clean. Efficiently maintained every day.

(4) Shower was good with hot water, hand shower etc.

(5) Breakfast buffet at 9 euros is a steal compared to prices outside. They also did not charge for our children. They have good indoor seating as well as a nice garden seating.

(6) Nice Italian restaurant in the front of this hotel if you get bored with the zillion other french restaurants.

(7) Strawberries in the corner fruit shop were ultimate. My daughter consumed a pound a day and proclaimed herself to be a "Strawbery Girl".

Negatives:

(1) We were in third floor (fourth by USA standard) with no elevator.

(2) No A/C. We had to keep the window open at night and endure some road noise. Gave my kids the city living experience they lack :)

(3) Did not have alarm clock, iron stand etc. (the wake up call was prompt, though)

Overall,

If you are visiting Paris for sight seeing and it is not summer, We would recommend you give this a serious look.
