“Cheap, last minute booking that served it's purpose for our trip”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Two friends and I booked a triple room in this hotel at the last minute to carry us through 2 nights of our Inter-railing trip. It was a cheap place to stay in comparison to other hotels and hostels in Central Paris available at the time we booked.

The hotel's location is good, close to the nearest Metro station and within walking distance of landmarks including the Bastille.

The hotel staff seemed somewhat unfriendly and I didn't like how you had to give your key in every time you left the building which was returned without any ID check.

The room was basic but it was clean and had everything we needed for our no frills stay. If you end up booking last minute to Paris I'd recommend this hotel, but I wouldn't leave valuables in the room.

Stayed July 2014

Staff not nice, kind of hard to comunicate with them in english. Near the metro station and good price for what you get in Paris. Near the Bastille on foot and if you rent a bicycle is not far from everything. Room cleaned everyday, beds not in good shape but clean bathroom. They could include the breakfast in the price and would have one more point.

In English for travelers' convenience. There is only one saving grave at this hotel and it is that there is one helpful man who works the front desk. My boyfriend and I stayed for a few nights in this dirty establishment and man at the front desk wouldn't even print out our boarding passes, knowing full well that it was a holiday and printing shops would be closed. Wifi is only in the lobby, so we overheard his rudeness towards other guests.

Room Tip: Do yourself a favor and book elsewhere in Le Marais or Montmartre.

After reading a few reviews on here we were quite sceptical but actually the hotel was great for us (a group of 10 girls). We got moved from their sister hotel down the road to here and were given a free breakfast which was delicious crossoints and pastries with coffee or tea.
The location was fantastic, lots of bars on the street and walking distance to the bustling Bastille area. The room was basic but clean, the shower worked fine and the room was cleaned daily.
Nobody got bed bugs and we didn't have any problems with the room at all. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever we needed them.

i was perfectly satisfied by the hotel, not the best not the worst place i ever stayed, found it via a deal website so got a really good price even cheaper than a bed in a hostel, perfect location to visit paris, will i go again yes if needed to go to paris center, would i pay full price maybe not, I needed a car park so this was one of the main reason for the choice. they have only 2 space for car park make sure you contact them before
the staff were nice and intrusive

In my top 5 worst hotels i've stayed in, it wasn't clean and it was absolutely infested with bedbugs, i woke up half through the first night covered in bites.I informed the staff who were not at all helpful.
The location is ok, fairly close to the centre.
Not good value for money
