“Dark, kitschy but fine.”
Reviewed 29 June 2009

We just needed a hotel for one night and I chose this one for its rates and the fact is loans bikes to its occupants! (only to be used in daylight of course). I particularly liked its reception center (front entry room) as kitschy but is could use better lighting (see photos). It is relatively near the Canal St. Martin and not too far from Parc Mont Chaumont. The hotel is not particularly in the best area especially in the evening but is fine. The bedrooms themselves are dark, stark and worn but servicable. The bathrooms, in contrast, are bright and sparkly clean. I assume the bedrooms were likewise as clean but the darker lighting was not helpful. They have a v. small elevator (with funny door) and winding stairs (one needs to turn on lights if dark when going up or down the stairs). The staff was helpful in all we asked if not particularly cheery. However, when we waited for the taxi in the early morning, we were served kindly coffee in the reception room which I quite enjoyed. This hotel will work for some but not all...wish the bedrooms were as fun as the reception room.

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
