I have been to Paris a few times, so I know this city and I know that, coming from Spain, the sense of "quality" for some Parisian hotels is not nearly the same as in Spain.
But this has got to be one of the worse hotels in Paris in which I have stayed.
I used the Agoda portal to book this hotel and little did I know I should have checked Trip Advisor first.
The price is not at all cheap, more than 100 euros per double room. For that kind of money you get real quality in Spain, even in cities like Barcelona or Madrid, where prices tend to be high.
The bathrooms were awful, full of black dirt because the tiles were never really finished with the corresponding plaster joints. The accessories were either broken or worn out.
The space of the rooms is insulting, with the beds almost next to the room door and almost no space at all to move.
The supposed "buffet" breakfast is a joke, everything is artificial, starting with the orange juice and the fruit (tuti fruti can).
On top of that, this street is close to a red-light area, which means you may stumble into prostitution dealings just by walking around, and who knows if prostitutes may even get a room in this hotel.
The only positive points of this hotel: good wi-fi connection, mostly helpful staff.
