“Nice affordable hotel”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I think this hotel was nice, clean and nicely kept. I have read reviews about rooms being dirty but ours was cleaned daily. They even changed towels and bed sheets every single day. The location wasn't bad at all, even at nights. It is only a few minutes walk from the metro. There are brasseries and restaurants that are much cheaper than in the center. People are also nicer and helpful. I will stay here again if I ever go back to Paris.

Room Tip: No elevator and stairs are quite narrow so ask for a room in the first floor if you travel with lot...

The room prices were super cheap, but it was for good reason. The rooms and bathrooms were incredibly small, which shouldn't be much of a problem if you only intend to be in the room to sleep and shower. What bothered me the most was that the room was very dirty, especially the bed. The bed had a dingy comforter on it, which was so questionable that I didn't even want to touch it to move it. The rest of the room wasn't as bad, although the floor was pretty gross also. Another problem I ran into was that the neighborhood was very noisy at night but I still had to sleep with the windows open because it was hot and there was no A/C. The good thing about the location is that it was only a five minute walk to a metro station, so if you can figure out the metros you can be anywhere in the city relatively quickly. Also worth noting is that the staff was fairly friendly, although they didn't speak much English, so they weren't able to answer any of my questions about the city. You get what you pay for, but the deciding factor for me was the dirty bed, which tips me to say that I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: No elevator so try to get a room on a lower floor if you have a lot of luggage

Clean and secure, reception allowed us to keep our luggage in their staff room. We came back with our luggage safe and sound. Morning marche near the hotel provide a good replacement for breakfast with local fruits and breads in the nearby patisserie is good.

Rooms are small, even for me (Asian). the shower and toilet is even smaller. But ultimately it's a safe place to lie your head down at night. Be warned, no lifts in this hotel. Pack light or ask for a lower floor and you will do fine.

Room Tip: lower floors, definitely

The hotel is compact but has all you need in the room for a base. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom was tiny but perfectly adequate. Hotel was very quiet and reception staff helpful.
Only a few minutes’ walk from the Metro which will take 10 mins approx to get you into central Paris. A 10 minute walk will get you to Pere Lachaise Cemetery, which you can easily spend several hours walking around.
Plenty of cafes and bars and supermarkets within minutes’ walk.
If you like alternative music there is a punk venue called La Miroiterie about a 3-5 minute walk 2 streets along.
Would definitely use this hotel as a base again.

Reviewed 19 April 2013

Was as mentioned by reviewers in TripAdvisor - small room, even smaller bathroom, face towels only and a piece of soap (no shampoo), but that is what you will get for that price. The heating was on in mid-April and on a nice spring day had to be turned off. Yes, the staircase or spiral and the difficult to climb and so try to get a room on the second or third floor. The Internet connection was quite good and there were three networks that were offered and all of them worked.

The neighbourhood was a typical working-class neighbourhood and despite what are the reviewers had said, there was no danger or security concerns. There were nice cafes immediately outside the hotel and the whole lot of restaurants. Quite a variety (Chinese, Indian, Turkish and of course a French one), bookshops and other little shops as a part of suburbia. Very educational to observe the environment.

Trip Advisor had only one of the two days that I'd required. However when I phoned the hotel (because the reviews in trip advisor were good!) directly they were able to give me a booking for both days (!).

Yes the reception did not speak much English but you could get along.

The rooms behind faced a courtyard and even with the windows open to us quiet. No problems about the water pressure or the hot water.

Room Tip: Get the rooms from the first to the third floor, simply to prevent you climbing. Otherwise all rooms...
