First of all it's a great location for Chinatown and enjoying the Asian restaurants around. Lot's of metro stations.
We had a double room w/ shower and toilet, it was small but clean. Although the room is small, space is used efficiently, it has a small closet and table. The price wasn't exactly cheap but it was for Paris. It was quite noisy at night and early mornings but that may be because our room was opposite the shared showers.
The reception staff were very helpful and patient and let us use the kitchen fridge to store some of our stuff. After 9:00pm reception closes and the main door is locked, you're given a key for it. It's a little bit hard to open but nothing a wiggle and push won't solve!
Overall a reasonable/ideal place for a short stay, must warn you there is no elevators (as mentioned on the website) so heavy luggage may proved bit of a hassle especially for higher floors.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor if you have heavy luggage because there is no elevators and try to avoid the roo...

Very nice rooms for a budget hotel, toilets are kept clean. Shower wasn't the worst i've used but could have been cleaner, very small and only two for the entire hotel, however never had to wait to get in them even in the mornings.
Staff were all very friendly, some more than others, seemed happy to recommend places to eat around the hotel and all knew english to some level.
Sink in the room and a fan, which was great as it was very warm. There is some noise from the street in-front but it didn't disrupt our sleep, there are plenty or restaurants close by an small supermarkets.
Overall very happy with our stay for the price and location giving us easy access to the metro straight into the center of Paris, or walking distance if you've got the time. Would use this hotel again when visiting if the budget is tight.

This is as cheap as it gets for Paris. Close to public transport and a variety of asian restaurants within the neighbourhood. My room was small, but not cramped. It was clean, basic and had everything you needed for a short stay. Staff were very friendly.

The staircase is quite narrow so be prepared to carry your luggage up to your room!

Great location, near the Metro, with easy access pretty much everywhere. Nice and helpful staff. Located in Oriental part of Paris, which we liked (Oriental for Europe, not really oriental). Room was clean. Small, but adequate. No fridge. But the street noise!! The only time it went nearly quiet was at about 5:00 am. No lift, so if you want a lower floor, then you get more noise. There's not real escape from the high cost and the number of tourists. Paris is beautiful. And for that, you pay. Not good value on a world scale, but for Paris ...

Room Tip: Proble. No Lift. Old wooden stairs. Lower is more noise. Higher is more effort (with bags etc)

A pleasent place to stay, reasonably well located for 4 and 14 metro lines. The room I had was clean and larger than you normally get in Paris for the modest cost. Very good bed. Staff were professional and I appreciated the cat - nice friendly touch.
On the negative side there was quite a lot of street noise on the Saturday night, but that's to be expected in a city and ear plugs helped. Also a towel larger than a hand towel would be appreciated, but this would not prevent me from going back. So overall, I'm happy to recommend it as a good value, comfortable place to stay for work or pleasure in Paris.

We stayed at Hotel Tolbiac for 5 nights and will definitely be back if we come back to Paris. The rooms were basic but perfectly suited to travelers on a budget who will be out and about all day. The hotel staff were really helpful. Price was amazing. Metro Tolbiac is less than a five minute walk away. Definitely recommend.
