The hotel is very nice. Very clean, fair buffet for breakfast (for 8 EUR), friendly staff and extremely close to the metro station (Picpus).
It's true, it is away from the city centre and the touristic area (about 30 ~ 45 minutes away by metro). At the other hand, you can eat in restaurants and cafés with the locals, as it's not a tourists area (so, sometimes, the communication can be a little bit confuse). This neighborhood is quiet and safe at all.
The room as well as the bathroom are small, but don't expect anything much different in Paris. So, I would say that the size is good for Paris standards. The shower is OK. The sleep quality is average as depending on the hour you will be able to hear some noises from the metro or from the next room.
If you are looking for a nice and simple hotel and you find yourself in a budget and you don't care about the transit time of about half hour to the city main attractions, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
