I discovered this hotel on tripadvisor - needed something cheap and cheerful in central Paris while travelling with my two teenage daughters. The hotel was easy to find - especially if you use Google - two blocks from Partmentier metro station. Triple room was, of course, small but had everything we required - comfortable beds, hot shower, wall safe, TV to see the Olympics! The cat was an added bonus.
The street (one-way) is very narrow and noise reverberates up to the rooms. It was hot in August and we needed to keep the window open at night. The noise was absolutely unbearable - especially on Saturday night. The pizza joint across the street was serviced by scooters which tore up the street endlessly. Also, groups of young men hanging out at the pizza place - shouting and laughing until daylight! The only night we got some sleep was the Sunday!
I felt safe in this neighbourhood and there were plenty of shops, restaurants, bakeries, etc. I'd stay here again but only with ear-plugs!
