Reviewed 25 August 2014

We had a great stay in this hotel and recommend it for a journey to Paris. The service is very friendly and tries to help you in each situation. The rooms are functional and the view is great. We 've got a room on the third floor. The district is nice and you can reach the subway (metro) within 2 minutes.

Very budget friendly and cozy place to stay, close to the center, easy access by metro to all the city attractions. There are supermarkets and affordable restaurants on Av.D' Italie two blocks up the street. Staff is very friendly, helpful. all you need to enjoy the trip and not break the bank!

We chose Hotel Tolbiac based on the location, which we know to be pleasant from previous travels, and the fact that children under 16 are allowed to sleep on an extra bed in the larger, en suite, double rooms. The hotel website clearly informs it is a “hotel without a[n] elevator” so we were prepared to climb stairs and after reading some reviews we also brought own towels (which we were prepared to leave behind as our suitcases have a tendency to shrink in Paris…)

Our room was on the second floor, in the corner of the building, so the traffic was quite noisy. Next time I’ll ask for a room on a higher floor. We had a small hallway between our room and the corridor so we heard absolutely nothing from the other guests. The room was clean and equipped with both a fan and a heater, the beds were comfortable and the en suite bathroom was really good, except for the lack of large towels.

Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was OK and there was a hotel cat that spent most of his time sleeping on the coffee machine. Metro and bus stops are close and the large shopping center Italie2 is within walking distance. We visited the food market near place d’Italie (Marché Auguste-Blanqui) and can also recommend the one at Avenue d’Italie (Marché Maison-Blanche). On the last morning we were allowed to leave our suitcases in the lobby, and after a day in town we took a taxi to Orly. The taxi turned out to be cheaper than three metro tickets and of course a lot more comfortable.

Room Tip: Use the window shutters, les volets, to keep out the sun and the traffic noise.

This place was ideal for sightseeing and the budget price. We pre-booked a room with toilet and shower before arriving. Yes it is a little noisy at night time, but nothing that a good set of ear plugs couldn't sort out. Staff were super friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. Very close to Metro and surrounding area seems to be quite safe and busy. Would recommend to people who are visiting Paris on a budget.

Room Tip: Pre-book room with toilet and shower.

A hotel enjoying a great location in China Town. Many Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese restaurants on the doorstep. The patisserie across the road must have magnets because we went in twice a day. I don't know why people moan about this place, those people should go elsewhere and pay 3 or 4 times the price if they want to be molly-coddled. Yes the stairs are a pain, gets you fit though. We had a room with en suite, no problems at all. The only downside is the traffic noise, just bear that in mind. The staff are efficient and helpful and have a gsoh.
Another plus as others have mentioned is the proximity to metro stations therefore access to all the sights within a short tube ride.
Go and see Sumon, barman in the L'Age D'Or bar, located to the right and behind the hotel. My wife recommends the Mojito cocktail; I recommend the local bier. It stays open late and atmosphere is great.

Room Tip: Free wifi is very iffy at best unless near the ground floor.

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.
