While this hotel is not in the center of things, the metro stop, as others noted, is literally a few feet from the entrance. We never waited more than 5 minutes for a train at that stop. However, since the metro only gets moderate traffic there, it’s not a congested area. It was nice to enjoy the slower pace of a neighborhood after returning from a day of sightseeing. It’s on a main thoroughfare, so there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We found the beds very comfortable and enjoyed the little amenities provided -- like a basket of magazines next to the bed. The front desk is staffed 24/7 and staff members were unfailingly helpful. Room sizes were fine for Paris. This is an older hotel which I think most will find charming (we did), but some may find difficult to manage because the tiny elevator is so difficult to use and the stairs slope a little.
My only con: Internet access is free, but spotty, and there is no printer for guests. If you want something printed you have to email it to the front desk and ask them to print it.
Big plus: The boulangerie across the street is exceptional. Best pain au chocolat ever!More
