Positive: Location to the train stations. Everything was clean even though very worn and dated.
Negative: It started off poorly. We were doubled billed for the hotel before we even left for our vacation - hadn't even slept there yet. Booking.com is trying to resolve it and the hotel said they would. We booked a room with an extra bed (a cot with an extra fee) and were told we were upgraded. That was good though I don't know what we were supposed to get?! There was someone smoking in one of the rooms close to ours which filled our room with the smell as well the smoking from the patrons downstairs (this hotel is over a bar/restaurant) so it was hard to leave the windows open. Most of the hotel staff didn't want much to do with us. While I feel enormously guilty that my French is limited, we did try. Their website advertises that they speak English but only one person would. The money we saved staying here would have been better spent somewhere else. Pay more and stay farther away from the station - close also means we were close to the metro station, which was the hang out for night crawlers - which isn't really much past midnight in France.
