“Very good value”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This hotel is a very good value for Paris. It is right by the Picpus Metro stop which is the next to last stop on the M6 line. This makes it very convenient to get around the city quickly, and you want have to walk far after a long day. There are some pretty good restaurants in the area, such as Le Picotin, nearby for when you don't feel like travelling far. The service was nothing extraordinary, but it was also not lacking. The breakfast was always great, and there were a good number of people down there each morning. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to friends or family looking for an economical place to stay.

Just returned from Paris, staying at this budget hotel for 2 nights. Chose this hotel after reading the previous reviews and I was certainly not disappointed. Daughter and I were given a very clean twin-bed room with bathroom attached on the 5th floor. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had a very pleasant stay. Will be back!

I've stayed in Lux Pic Pus Nation hotel already 4x starting from 2001 and and the last was in 2007 and will be staying again soon in coming March. The hotel is clean and the bath room already renovated in 2005. The area is very nice near Nation. The metro station is just few steps from the hotel. It's true that you can still hear the break of the train from your room in 1st floor where I always prefer to stay coz I love to hear the sound from distance. The breakfast all you can eat with good quality. I considered the hotel is almost perfect for the rate. It's worth it for budget hotel. It's not far from center but it's not problem if you prefer in safe area and quiet.
I mostly recommend traveller to stay but don't expect you would find good pillow. I love this hotel very much

Room Tip: During summer you better take 1st floor since the hotel without air condition but you will hear the...

I stayed one night just passing through Paris, so can't comment on convenience to the major attractions, but the area is nice enough and it's a short taxi ride from Gare de Lyon. Reception, lift, stairs and bathrooms are all small, but hey, it's Paris! Nice views over the Boulevard too. Just make sure you're not on the seventh floor if you have lots of luggage; the lift only goes to the 6th!

Overall, it's a good clean hotel with character at a great price.

Room Tip: The lift only goes to the sixth floor, so for the seventh (top) floor you have to drag luggage up a...

Paris is small so even though the hotel is not in the central arrondissements, it's easy to get everywhere. Free wifi is useful, and the hotel is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff are friendly. It was nice to be in a new area of town, too, having lived in the 8th before. Great for a couple of days.
