I booked the Hotel Novex a few weeks ahead, scrambling to find a Paris hotel before leaving for Europe. I chose the Novex based on availibility, location (parents were staying nearby in a different hotel), and price (my brother and I stay in hostels and budget hotels). With very few recent reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect.
Novex is in a nice, clean neighbourhood just a few minutes on foot from Maison Blanche metro. The Chinese couple running the hotel were friendly, especially the lady who spoke with me cheerfully in both English and French... clearly doing her best to help me with my French. The hotel is clean and simply decorated. There's a small lift that fits two (or one with luggage) and a nice wooden stairway. The room was very simple and clean enough for two guys in their 20s, not immaculate that's for sure, but pretty decent for a budget hotel in Paris! The rate for a room with two beds (double and twin) was 66 euro. I orginally had booked one double bed for 60 euro (all that was available online at the time), but upgraded upon arrival. Decent value for Paris.
The only negative are the bites I had on my shoulders, which I discovered late in the day after the final night staying there. I don't believe they were bedbugs, as all the bites were only on my shoulders (the part of my body that was exposed above the covers) and nowhere else on my body. My brother found only one bug the first day, but we didn't believe it was a bedbug, and still think it was a random bug that flew in the window. So it's most likely the bites were from a spider, or perhaps a mosquito.
