+ Great location - 2 subway stops minutes away, cafes literally next door in all directions, grocery store and pharmacy across the street
+ Low price
+ Reasonably spacious room by European/Paris standards
- Breakfast is a bit expensive
- By a train station - some homeless people at night etc, busy area and never felt unsafe though
- Some other guests said it was noisy - think it helps to be on a high floor
Conclusion: Overall one of our favourite hotels this trip. I know the reviews are mixed, but I'm not sure what you expect from a central hotel in Paris for this price. We did stay for breakfast twice and found the 11 euro charge a bit steep for a continental breakfast. Near the end of our stay we ate nearby for about half of the price. The grocery store across the street is also fantastic for cheap snacks, water, or whatever else you need.
Tips: If you arrive at a train station that is not St Lazare, you will probably need to take the RER to there first (it is then a 5 minute walk from the St Lazare RER to the hotel). If you are arriving within Paris the normal transit tickets will also work for the RER, you do not need a special ticket. Buy the books of 10 each ('carnets') to save money.
