We stayed for one night with our 12 month old son in May 2013. We chose the hotel because of it's excellent location in walking distance near Gare du Nord for the Eurostar. We could walk there but it was a little bit of a struggle with the push chair and all the luggage (those travelling with young kids and babies you know what I mean!) and it started raining :( but if you have a manageable amount of luggage this would be fine. It was also conveniently located near Republique metro station, but we walked everywhere and it was an easy walk to champs de Elysee and center du pompidou and many other attractions. We had twin beds which was not our preference and the room could have used a makeover, but it was reasonable and hey, you're in Paris and who wants to spend time in their hotel?!
- 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
