We spent three nights in this hotel over the July holiday weekend and so it was very busy. Arriving at Beauvais airport, we took the shuttle bus to Porte Maillot and then got métro line 1 (that goes right across Paris, covering many of the important sights) directly to the stop Saint Mandé. From here it took just five minutes to walk to the hotel. On the way we passed restaurants, shops, a chemist and a good supermarket. The hotel was what I expected - a chain hotel, simple, modern and with easy access to local transport. Other reviews have already described the rooms, which I think are all similar, and the only real problem was the room temperature. We had two rooms - one was almost cold, with air-conditioning working non-stop and the other was far too hot with no air-conditioning working at all! We did mention this at reception but nothing happened. From what I've read there seems to be a regular problem with room temperatures but we were there to visit Paris and so only slept in the rooms.
We paid extra to have breakfast in the hotel and, although a simple breakfast, it was filling and good value for Paris as drinks and breakfast out in cafés are very expensive.
I often review hotels and believe in judging them for what they are and for their particular category. We paid just under 50 Euros a night for a twin room with breakfast and I think it was very good value for what it was - somewhere clean/modern to sleep, breakfast to start the day, easy access to transport and on a very good line. If you want more than that, then you pay for it and stay elsewhere.
The only really negative comment I have to make is that the entrance hall wasn't always kept as clean and tidy as it should have been (in particular the bathrooms there) and I did point this out to the staff.
