My daughter and I took the Eurostar from London for a two day jaunt in Paris and needed cheap accomodations in a good location. We have stayed in this area before and liked it so when I found Hotel Eugenie online, I made our reservation.
As others have stated, it's not a fancy place, but I wasn't expecting the Ritz. Check in was easy and it helped that the woman spoke English. She was not what I would call friendly, but she was courteous, which was just fine.
Our room was quiet, overlooking the courtyard and was clean and cozy. Our bed was a king sized bed and very comfortable. The bathroom was small but adequate. Aren't all bathrooms small in Paris? ;)
The only problem we ran into was figuring how to turn on the lights. You have to insert the room key in a slot on the wall for the lights to turn on. Their way of conserving energy, I suppose.
The other issue was with the internet. My daughter logged on first and once one person is using the internet, no one else can log on! So, SHE got to check her e-mail, facebook, twitter, etc. while I twiddled my thumbs... Who paid for the room, anyway?! The moral of the story here is, you snooze, you lose. I think they would have been willing to give me another access code if I had made a stink about it but since we were only staying for one night, I figured I didn't have to have internet access (gasp!).
We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on the food.
Overall, I was satisfied with our room. It was quiet, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was functioning. I feel like we got what we paid for: a two star accomodation in a great location.
