I stayed at this hotel when I was in Paris over Christmas.
The staff were wonderful; every single one of them were friendly, helpful and forgiving about my poor French skills. A special shout-out goes to "Santa" who was particularly helpful even though he didn't understand my broken French/English request for a fork. The cleaning staff on Christmas day (which I suspect were different from the normal staff, who were fine) could have been more careful with my belongings in my room.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Right next to the Metro station so I didn't need to drag my suitcase far, and it was well positioned on the Metro map as well. The hotel claims to be a 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower but I didn't put this to the test.
The room was bigger than I had expected after hearing horror stories about small Paris hotel rooms. My room was 201 and was next to the elevator. I had a lot of noise from the elevator and so I suggest asking to switch if you get a room in the same location. The walls are very thin and I could hear everything that was happening in the next room on the days that I had neighbours.
The only downsides to the hotel would be that the rooms are a little dark - there was just one light on the wall so the middle and far side of the room was pretty dark. And there was a kettle and set of tea there but no mugs with which to drink the tea. My friend who also stayed at the hotel also mentioned this so I suspect that the tea is not intended to be drank. Luckily I'd been given a mup cup for Christmas - you can't stop a Brit from drinking tea!!
I didn't have the breakfasts - in my opinion why pay 9 euros a day when there are plenty of lovely bakeries and restaurants in the area?
As I left the hotel I said quite honestly to the man at the desk that I was sad to leave the place. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else next time I'm in Paris.
