Reviewed 29 April 2013

We chose this hotel because it has a kitchenette and it was newly renovated. Functional kitchenette is definitely is a big plus but the lack of coffee maker/kettle for coffee/tea drinkers and the lack of chairs in the kitchen area made it slightly uncomfortable. The room is cozy, the bathroom with a rain shower is perfect. We were pleasantly surprised with the amazing, filling, and free breakfast. The personnel is friendly and some of them speak enough English. Location is not perfect for tourists, but metro station is just a block away and the metro line 7 leads you directly to the center. The wonderful charming French boulangerie, which is one building away, makes up for any inconveniences.
All of this makes this hotel is attractive for future stay.

The rooms are small but very clean, new and functional. Mattress and bedding good quality. They have a small kitchen equipped with everything you need to prepare something quick. The bathroom is new and spacious, all finishes were new and clean.

Noisy, drafty, and tiny rooms. The receptionists were nice enough, though not very professional, not well-trained it seems. No way to make the room dark, either. Baby was unhappy there, spent three nights in the hotel.

This hotel is clearly newly renovated which is definitely a benefit. The rooms are cozy but not cramped (as many hotels in paris can be), and all the appliances and facilities are in working order.

We were very surprised to find a two burner range in our double deluxe room! As well a microwave, a dorm-room sized fridge (as opposed to the "mini-bar" fridges standard in many hotels), and plates, cutlery, and cookware in the cabinets!

The metro is merely blocks away giving you great access to the entire city, and there is a marche as well as small eateries near the metro stop as well.

We paid only 118 Euro for the double deluxe room which is a steal in paris for a saturday night! The only complaint I have is that the hotel's website advertised (in multiple places) a special that includes free breakfast with an online reservation. For this reason we made the reservation on the website and not through a booking site (kayak). The next morning as we were eating breakfast we were informed that breakfast was not included, and for a moment we thought we were going to have to pay for it (I think 20 Euro). In the end they did the right thing and gave it to us but beware! If you are expecting a similar deal be sure to ask at checkin (or better yet, call before you book).

Room Tip: Double Deluxe has a two burner range with cookware! I imagine the suites would as well.

My wife and I arrived late in the evening to check in, and learned that our room had been given away to someone else moments before we got there. Without much of an explanation, we were shoved into a taxi and taken to a much cheaper, dirtier, and genuinely unpleasant "hotel" - which also happened to be in an inconvenient location.

Avoid this place at all costs.

Went here for a business trip. The hotel is in the south of Paris close to Gentilly and Arcueil. It is a bit noisy due to the main street close by. The house is pretty new/modern, the rooms are quite big compared to other locations ins Paris.Rooms were clean.
Some of the service guys were pretty unfriendly which was actually the only, but a major pain point :(

Room Tip: Do not expect too much service and/or much friendliness.

Spectacular find in Paris. I did extensive research and I was pleased to find this hotel after searching for a clean safe place. This hotel is very close to bus and train stops so you can access tourist locations fairly easy. WE bought a full day pass for about 11 euros per person that you can use to travel on all the trains and buses.

traveled with my husband and 9 month old daughter. It was very important to have somewhere safe and clean. We are beyond pleased with this hotel. We felt very safe returning late at night. Its not to far away from the train station and there is a bus stop a few steps away. We loved the fact that the hotel is brand new. It also has hardwood floors. (Love this better than carpet because it carries less germs.) The room was spotless. WE also got a free upgrade to a suite. The room was the size of an apartment equipped with two flat screens, a kitchen, minibar with stools ample closet space and a bathroom that is probably bigger than many European rooms. It was nice to have somewhere that felt like home and was spacious so the baby could move around.

The hotel offers free breakfast and wi fi. The staff were very helpful with calling cabs, telling us how to take public transportation and help us find our way around the city to do tourist things. We do not speak French and they were very helpful.

If you want stay in a hotel that is new, has a great breakfast and is near tourist attractions this is the place to be. The rooms are exactly as pictured. We will definitely stay here again on a visit to Paris
