This hotel is right by Arts et Metier metro station and opposite the Arts et Metiers museum in the 3rd arondissament. We stayed for 4 nights and it is a good base from which to explore Paris. We could easily get to Hotel de Ville metro in less than 15 minutes or walk it in 20 minutes.
Our room was on the first floor on the front and was actually quiet, even on a Saturday night. The room was very small (typical for Paris) but clean and adequate. The air conditioning and free Wi-Fi were definite plus factors, as was the safe in the room (useful for documents and spare cash) and coffee/tea making facilities. There was also a lift to all floors, the alternative was a spiral staircase - common in older buildings!
The main downside is that breakfast is not normally included and was Euro10 per person - however, if you don't want to pay it there is a baker's on the next corner and also a Carrefour City within 2 minutes walk.
The hotel staff are pleasant and helpful and speak good English, but be aware that as a non- touristy part of Paris many of the local restaurants are closed on Sundays & Mondays, so eating out can be a bit of a challenge.
