Old rooms with loud alley way the woke us up every night.

However, I lost my wedding ring down the drain and the hotel clerk retrieved it like it was not a big issue. I offered a tip and he refused, saying it was his job to help.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the alley way, there are people going in/out all night and playing music/talkin...

I stayed here for three nights as a solo traveller in June 2011. I had a room in the back on the third floor -- no lift, so getting my big back up the curvy staircase required some heft, but the room itself was perfectly fine: small, but clean, with good light and a comfortable bed. The Boileau is in the 16th -- close to a Metro stop, but about a 30-minute ride to central Paris, so if you're looking to be in the heart of the action, you might want to look elsewhere. But if you want (as I did) a safe, quiet, relatively inexpensive place to shower and sleep while you explore Paris, the Boileau is perfectly fine. It's well-located for a daytrip to Versailles -- the RER stop is only 15 minutes away by foot, and then Versailles is an easy 20-minute train ride. My experiences with the staff were mixed: the day staff seemed determined to converse as little as possible, but the overnight staff were friendly and helpful and reserved a taxi for me the morning of my departure. Free wifi worked well and was a nice bonus.

The Boileau is OK. Nothing outstanding or flash but simply a functional place to stay without breaking the bank. It is perfect no frills accommodation for a weekend in Paris. The shower is OK too.

I can recommend it if you need a cost effective place to stay and you are going to be out and about all the time.

We stayed at Hotel Boileau for a long weekend in November. The hotel is ideally situated in a quiet side road not far from Porte de St Cloud and a 20 minutes bus ride to the centre of town. Prices were Euro 120 for the room, but jumped to Euro 150 for the Saturday night. We thought this a bit pricey, especially for the time of year. We never tried breakfast, eating instead at the excellent Restaurant Cardinale on Porte de St Cloud, great food and atmosphere whatever time of day you eat. The hotel is essentially 'clean' and the service friendly - the desk staff are always willing to help and are welcoming at all times. So good marks for service and location. Given this is only a 2 star hotel, it's no surprise the room was small. However, this was not helped by dingy wallpaper, a truly dingy brown carpet, both walls and carpet being heavily marked and stained. When I say the room and bathroom were 'clean', they certainly smelled 'clean', the room being serviced every day, just reconcile yourself to a history of old marks left behind by previous customers. Bathroom was adequate, however the bath was tiny and the shower a complete joke - all contributing perhaps to the 2 star rating. Beds were commensurate with the room - small, and not particularly comfortable. Overall, a moderately ok stay, but not one we are going to repeat or recommend to friends.

Our room in this two star hotel for five days was on the second floor, at the rear of the hotel and a large window looked down onto a small space between buildings with small trees. Two singles pushed together to form a large bed (which we prefer anyway); room fitted with a large wardrobe with shelves, and hanging space, two bedside tables and a combination glass topped large desk and luggage rack. The room was quite airy with windows open and blissfully quiet, at times during the day the sun shone in. (Yes we slept at odd hours getting over jetlag!). The bathroom was fitted with a bidet (does anyone use these things?) a toilet, and handbasin and shower with shower curtain arrangement over a large deep bath. Breakfast was Euro9, and very enjoyable looking onto a pleasant plant filled atrium. Huge pots of coffee and jug of frothy hot milk, pastries, bread, jams, cereal, fruit, and cheeses, Presided over by a bubbly, very efficient Madame was a perfect start to a busy day sightseeing. The Hotel is located in a residential area, and we found it easy to access by using the RER to Boulevard Victor, walking over the Pont Garigliano to Rue Boileau. We travel light with only one piece of baggage each , so found no difficulty using this route. A small Supermarket is located nearby and many Restaurants in the area and more nearby near Porte De St Cloud. There was a computer for internet access in the lobby, however pathetically slow when it was working.

Had taken my partner for his 40th birthday and relied upon the tripadvisor reviews...was not dissappointed. We had a lovely 3 night stay and the room, although small, was very clean and comfortable. It was a 45 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, so we did a lot of walking but worth the experience of seeing much of the 'real' Paris. There is a fantasic market just a street away and many restaurants and shops too...the hotel was set in a quiet street and did not feel intimidating at all. Could not fault the helpfulness of the staff and found the hotel to be very charming, would recommend highly and would rate higher that the 2 star it is. Hope to visit again. Only one slight negative, I found the breakfast pricey for what you got - 9 euros for juice, cereal and a croissant. Bon Voyage!

Stayed for a weekend solo trip, very late check in, no problem!

Flat TV with cable, good heating, clean room, hot water!

Got the basics straight. About 5 minute walk to Metro Station at Exelmans

Highly recommended for a budget trip.
