This place is ideal for a cheap(ish) short stay. The location is excellent with convenient restaurants, boulangeries, small supermarkets etc. The 7.50 breakfast is the same price as the local bars and a lot better - big choice of breads and croissants, 3 types of jam, and butter., also very good coffee. You don't come to Paris to sit in your room so the smallish space and darkness wasn't a problem. We were on first floor and the only noise was the boiler roaring away everytime someone truned on a hot tap, however with the window closed you couldn't hear it. We had no problems getting wi-fi in the room. We found the staff perfectly friendly, and a daily paper was available in the lobby, useful for checking the weather forecast. My only gripe is one I encounter almost everywhere I stay: no hooks on the backs of the doors! There was a very small hanging space, just about adequate for a short trip, and a tiny chest of drawers, but what is one supposed to do with a wet coat or bath robe? A few plastic stick-on hooks wouldn't break the bank!
- 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
