This is a small two star hotel in the 13th Arrondisment in Paris. As a two star hotel, you won't find the usual comfort zones of larger hotels. There is no lobby to speak of only a small seating area next to a very smallish breakfast room. There is no elevator and if you have some luggage, you will have to carry it to your room a couple of floors up. The rooms are small, which is normal for Paris, the furniture has seen better days quite a while ago, but the bathroom is actually quite large and my room was spotlessly clean. The price (advertised on their website) is very reasonable for Paris - you usually pay double for not much higher standard. People at the reception are very nice. Just be aware that they don't really speak English, but French and Italian. The hotel is located next to a little beautiful square "Place Verlaine" and you're also next to that little village within Paris called "Butte aux Cailles". There are more restaurants, bistros, cafes, and little shops in the vicinity than you'll ever need and most places are reasonably priced for Paris since rather few tourists hang out at this spot of Paris. The Parisian Chinatown is also around the corner where you can find wonderful small Vietnamese, Laotian and other eateries. Metro station (Place d'Italie) is 3 - 5 minutes away, direct bus to Gare de Austerlitz next door. Maybe not recommended for first time visitors in Paris who rather prefer to be in the middle of the all the sites, but if you are a return visitor to the city and don't mind to stay a bit away from the major sites and enjoy a kind of everyday Paris, this is the truly a great place to stay.
You can have breakfast for 6.50 Euros, which you may prefer to spend outside in one of the cafes.
