Having read some of the reviews written about this hotel, we set off with a certain amount of trepidation about our stay here. We shouldn't have worried. The place was very clean and was kept that way on a daily basis.
As a base for exploring Paris it couldn't have been better. A leisurely stroll to Montmartre in 30 mins (could easily have been quicker), close to le Gare du Nord and the Metro. Just round the corner from the Gare de l'Est and the open bus tour. Do not buy your tickets from the shop adjacent to the stop. He'll sell you a ticket for 41€ which is only valid for the BatoParisienne. Luckily we were able to blag it on the buses!
There are some brilliant eating houses towards the Arch at St.Denis and the restaurant next to the hotel (looks kind of seedy from the outside) is well worth a visit.
Breakfast at the hotel is very basic. The patrons/owners are extremely pleasant and informative and the staff are always helpful and pleasant.
The only downfall is the noise from the African bar down the street and the constant traffic noise. Our room was facing the market and we had many sleepless nights but our friends room was at the back and they didn't hear any noise. Insist on a back room! The views might not be good but, at the end of the day, it's purely a base.
Finally, I should add that some of the reviews are quite old and the pictures of the hotel seem dated because both ours and our friends' rooms have been completely redecorated.
