We only stopped in Paris for a few days and had all the sites to visit. So naturally we needed something close enough where everything was accessible but far away enough to keep the cost at a reasonable rate.
The Location- This hotel was a good choice, about 15 minutes by train from central Paris and about 10 minute walk from Jordan Metro station. The area looks slightly sketchy, I mean compared to the rest of Paris,but if you have stayed in any major city it won’t faze you. This being said it was very safe, we walked around at 12am and were not bothered. There are some really good restaurants around the area and the prices are unbeatable compared to the rest of the city (3 courses large portions and good food 16 Euro) for those who don’t fancy the French food there is a McDonalds down the street and if you walk 10 minutes further you will find a little China town (this walk also gives you view of the Eiffel tower in the distance, very beautiful at night)
The Hotel- From the outside it does not look like much. When you walk in the small entrance there are 2 doors the one to your right is reception and to left the stairs leading to the rooms. If you don’t like a good stair climb or if you enjoy a few drinks before you stumble home, you might rethink staying here. The stairs are steep, winding and the steps are very narrow in places. The hotel decor is minimal but clean from what I observed.
The Room- It was small but there was enough room for a desk, 2 night stands and a wardrobe so I can’t complain. The bed was also a good size and comfortable. I will say the bathroom is a bit of a squeeze, about airplane size but everything was spotless so I was happy.
The Staff- Did not say much, communication was a little difficult since they spoke little English and we spoke no French. The service was basic; they did not even offer an apology after we had to wait for our room 2 hours after check in. To sum it up, if you’re in the city to see the sights and need somewhere to crash that is clean, basic and within a reasonable proximity to the city centre and are not bothered about service I would recommend this hotel.
