“Not bad depending on your expectations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

This hotel has many pros and cons it just depends on what kind of traveler you are and what you think you are getting vs what you get. First off I believe it is not worth the money you pay for it especially during the high season. The room is small small small. The bath room is even smaller. So small that to use the toilet you have to sit sideways on it. That is something I think should be fixed immediately and a palls me that France would let you sell a hotel in that condition. The mold in the bathroom was quite disturbing as well as it was a large amount on the wall and around the bottom of the shower.

The worst part was the noise level in the rooms facing the street. There is no fan so when is hot you must sleep with the window open and sleep like you are on the freeway all night. All of this after you have toured paris all day and come back to your hotel that has no elevator and only some very very steep steps.

That being said there are some pros to this hotel. The staff was very very friendly and nice.there is a grocer and pharmacies all around along with restaurants and a big grocery store. There are two metro stops one across the street and another within a short walking distance. The street seems shady but actually I believe was quite safe. Even with all the negatives eventually the hotel began to seem like home.

I will not be staying here again if I visit paris.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one not facing the street when you book.

I was here for a business and visit trip. Paris is busy and beside very high price and low price nothing was left. I selected this hotel because it was free to book. The room was kind of camper with no way to close the micro bathroom. Need to jump over the vase to reach the shower. The bedspread was disgusting. The bed was protected by a plastic sheet under the sheet, in this way you just sweat and cannot sleep. Bed need to be changed. The TV is useless does not pickup signal and is mounted in a way that you have to to watch it stand up. To reach the room you have to climb a very very straight stair. Good luck in case of fire... The room was quite but if you are on the street no way to sleep. Overall the full hotel is old and dirty and too expensive for what you get. Personal is nice.

I chose this hotel based on location with the intention of walking everywhere in Paris, and this was achieved. However this was far outweighed by the negatives which I feel I have to mention.

Firstly on arrival we were allocated room number 8 on the first floor, which turned out not to have a door on the ensuite bathroom which would cause obvious problems. I asked to change room and we were moved up to the 5th floor (room 14), where there was a sliding door on the bathroom which was hanging off, but better than nothing.

The overall cleanliness of the rooms was poor; the hotel is in need or serious refurbishment and replacement of beds, bedding and furniture. I would advise to spend an extra 20 Euros or so and you'll be able to find a much better hotel without compromising on location.

Room Tip: Please don't choose this hotel - there are a multitude of other hotels nearby!
