My family stayed here in late June. The family room we had was up under the eaves, and we were pleasantly surprised to find it was actually two small spaces, one with two twins and one with a double bed, separated by curtains. It was good value for the price. I will say that the neighborhood was...urban...lots of tourists, traffic, a bar on the street below open til late. The street the hotel is on is also a little sketchy looking, but was safe enough. We're city people so that wasn't too bothersome but I can see it being a problem for people not used to a bustley city. There are two Metro stops within a short walk. It's right near the Place de la Republic, which is undergoing a huge renovation right now and should be very nice when they're done. Although we didn't use them, the hotel supplies bicycles for borrowing. It was a decent base for exploring Paris. My one issue was that breakfast was very French, bread, butter, jam, coffee and juice, and kind of expensive (7.5 euros per). We ended up eating at a little cafe on the corner which had English breakfast (more friendly for those of us on a Paleo diet) or getting yogurt from the Marche Franprix .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hotel is a small one with 23 rooms that are warm, cozy and attractively decorated. When our guests arrive, we give them a key to the entrance door to the hotel as well as a room key. Right away everyone feels at home or rather, in a guesthouse. Our rooms are all different, each one has its own style: Oriental, pop, empire, Pompei, and so on.... We take particular care with the breakfast, served in the basement with its old-fashioned stone ceiling. Our breakfast consists in croissants, the traditional baguette and whole-grain bread, made not by an industrial bakery but by our local baker. The jams are homemade, prepared by us using quality fruits. All the products we use are chosen and furnished by local shops. Our guesthouse is located in a central district animated by its residents. It is a popular district for Parisians that is famous for its picnics along the Canal Saint-Martin, its bars, its restaurants and small local shops. All around you will find many Parisian brands, boutiques, bookstores, and food stores. We have selected them and tested them before recommending them. For getting around in Paris we have bicycles that are freely available during your stay. This is also part of our approach. Whatever the reason for your visit to Paris, we hope you will appreciate the atmosphere of our guesthouse. ... more less
