“Heart of the city”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

Reasonable price for the location but nothing extra ordinary. An old building (under renovation), We checked - in late night and we got a room facing the main street La-Fayette. only after a while to know the springs of the bed were broken and dangerously popping up. Other rooms were booked for the following day but staff managed to provide another room for the night. But had to move out to a different room the next morning. After a day long journey, to sleep less and to move things several times was annoying.

Rooms are small but bathrooms are clean and fresh. Excellent staff. Breakfast was ok.

Pros - Heart of the city, Close to SriLankan stores and Indian restaurants, Main metro station right next door.

Cons - poor infrastructure, noisy, not value for money though its reasonable as compared to other hotels in the region.

The room for 3 provided to us had just one power slot! Nothing to be found even in the bathroom. Oh and yeah- the bathroom has something that looks like a door.

Too expensive for such a poor quality accommodation - seat of toilet did not even match up to the toilet size. I only stayed for the night, close to Gare du Nord, for convenience to catch the train in the morning.

It was a very bad hotel. Very cold rooms with too small heating. I booked a non smoker room and got a smoker room.
The douches were cold! When you have chosen the warm water the douches stopped to run!
The elevator stocked and the employees bahavior was ignorant.
Very complicated process of paying and partwise very unfriendly, apathetically and stressed employees.
Concluding I must say, that this hotel is not advisable!!!
The only positive point was the good RER-connection to the city.

Reviewed 29 September 2011

We stayed in this hotel in late September, 2011. The location was reasonably close to city attractions. The area was filthy with paper and cigarette butts all over the streets and a strong stench of urine in the area, in fact the urine was all over Paris (disgusting). It smells as if people pee on every wall over night, spoils the feel of Paris for us. Our room was very basic, the sheets clean but blankets and bed spread not so sure. Blanket very old and tatty with stains. No proper pillows, just a roll put under your bottom sheet - was ok for sleeping though. Bathroom clean but so small you could hardly sit on the toilet. Shower curtain would not stay in the base so water went all over the floor. No tea and coffee facilities in room. We were allowed to fill a thermos for our coffee needs. Room is fairly dated, stale smelling as if the carpets are dirty. Bed was comfortable and not old. Window opened onto extremely noisy street until early hours you could not leave it open. No fan or air conditioning so got quite hot in the night. We paid around 105 Euros per night for a twin room and would definitely not pay any more than this, you would be better putting a bit extra in and getting a little more comfort. You really did not feel as if you could come home from a busy day and relax as there was nothing but the bed to relax on and without pillows to put behind you it was impossible - also the bed would just roll out from the wall. Internet was quite good wifi so that was a positive for us using our computer for booking onward journeys and keeping in touch with family. If you can't afford anything else it will do the job but I would prefer a little more than this for my Paris stay.

Room Tip: Try to get away from busy street
