This hotel has no elevator but six floors. Depending on what room you choose, you will have to carry your belongings up several flights of stairs. Most rooms have no en suite shower or toilet. This means that you'll have to walk down the hall.

I chose one of the few (pricey) rooms with toilet/shower. It was miniscule. The wifi works when no one else is using it.

I stayed at this hotel for several days and found the reception staff's sense of humour delightfully "dry" - so be forewarned. They will explain how to open the door when they are not there. Breakfast is simple coffee/croissant but you can take it to the small open courtyard. The hotel is close to a Metro Station.

Most clients seemed to be French from outside Paris.

Room Tip: Remember, no elevator.

Here is the list of why you don't want to stay in this place

1. Incredibly loud street noise , forget about sleeping
2. No toilet in room
3. Shared shower in hallway was dirty
4. Just a sink in the room , thats it, and you would think they would include a towel....NO towel
5. At night you have to use a special exterior lock to get in , that was broken
6. Stairway that is extremely hard to get luggage up to room
7. Rooms are dirty , small and bed is hard as a rock

Hello,
When Paris is found choked per too many events the same day, it happens that the hotels accommodate customers seeking hopelessly or to place itself.
When the variation is too large between the practices of the traveller and the category of the place, that always poses a problem.
At the time of your arrival we knew that there was an error.
The room had been booked by one of your friends. You did not know that you arrive in a Hotel 1 star without elevator and that the booked room was individual economic: equipped with a wash-hand basin, a bed of one person.
This long list of negative points, irritable, which you write is exactly the reflection of the example explained to the top.
Your previous travel shows your practices of 5 stars.
We are sorry that you spent a bad night and we hope that you will choose your Parisian Hotel according to your tastes at the time of your next stay.

No smoke detectors in the room, no alternative fire escape. No fire sprinklers! The only stairs are wooden, very steep and in the middle of the building. A perfect fire trap. Next to a very noisy intersection, but reasonably quiet during the night. Clean. No elevator. Very helpful and friendly staff. My room had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke.

Room Tip: Bring your own wash towel and power splitter if you have more than one charger to use at the same time.

Hello,
We make a point of specifying that our hotel was declared in conformity with the French legislation. There is, only the hotels having received the authorization which have the right to put on their frontage the square panel bordeau. Ours corresponds to hotels 1 star.
All the security system exist, carries cut fire, smoke detector, alarm sets fire.
The typically Parisian buildings of the end of the 19th century have the boards out of wooden and it is what makes their charm.
There is no elevator, and we let us not make mystery of it on our website.
We did not find a solution nice to prohibit to smoke in the rooms. the French legislation on this subject is not restrictive.
Thank you in all the cases to have taken your time to write to us. We hope that Paris knew to keep its mysteries and that you will return soon.
