Reviewed 9 May 2014

The rooms as other have said are small, cozy, cramp, whatever term you want to use, but from what I've been told this is the norm and not the exception in Paris. The room was clean, beds small but comfortable and small but clean bathroom as well. The front staff is friendly enough. The locations is good. Subway is just around the corner along with several places to eat. Most the cities attractions are 15-90 mins walk. Notre Dame is a reasonable 15-20 min walk along with some other sites.

Breakfast was good. The wifi worked flawlessly. The neighborhood felt reasonably safe unlike some other parts of Paris.

Price... it was the highest by far I paid for anywhere in Europe (or China or USA), but again having looked at dozens of other hotels online in Paris, this is also the norm, not the exception. Relative to other hotels in Paris, it's a decent value, but this hotel is not first class, so if that's what you expect, look elsewhere and expect to pay a LOT more. However, if all you want is a basic place to sleep, wash, and rest your feet, this might be for you.

Room Tip: Our room was on the back side, not facing the street and while there was nothing to see but another...

Small, clean, comfortable rooms. Not a lot of closet space, but could be exactly what you need. I was looking for an apartment in Paris, and didnt have a place to stay. I stayed here for a week, and the management let me keep a lot of bags in the storage for a few days. No complaints. Simple, and a good location. Close to Montorgeuil, the Marais, Republique, Oberkampf and Grand boulevards. Lots of metros close by. Great place.

We stayed there on July 2011. The room is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast offers different types of cheese, jam and bread, we loved it. It's twenty minute walk from Notre Dame cathedral and walking distance from other attractions, like Louvre Museum. There's also a sybway station just around the corner, and many restaurants, shops and mini markets.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have the same quality.

Stayed here Dec 30th-Jan 2nd. The hotel was nice, staff was friendly and spoke English well enough. Very close to the metro line and dinning options. The only down fall is the hotel was very small, the rooms, and even the elevator.

Nothing fancy here - but is very good for the price in Paris. The hotel is small but in a very convenient location. We walked to Notre Dame and the river from the hotel. It is not a bad walk although with a Metro stop is a very short 1/2 block away from the hotel you can get around that way if you like. .

The hotel is located on a quieter side street which is nice, but still has close access to many place of interest - metro, restaurants, shops, grocery store, bar, etc.

The hotel room was Paris tiny as expected, but adequate for our needs. The room was clean. The shower and bathroom were fine for us. Coffee in the room is convenient. Breakfast was basic but fresh and kept well stocked.

The front desk staff was professional, friendly and very helpful. They also spoke excellent English.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The view on the backside rooms is just of other very close buildings. If you want to see something...

Stayed here 3 nights in October the rooms are not big but very comfortable and clean. Despite the proxmity of the metro it was very quiet. Breakfast was fresh nicely presented and was more than enough for me. Staff are helpful and friendly.
