We stayed for a week in this small hotel and it is perfect if you want to experience the charm of Paris away from the hustle and bustle.
1. very good location - metro line 1 and RER A are very close to the hotel (they take you directly to Paris center)
2. very clean and modern (cleaned every day, towels changed daily, furniture in perfect condition, LCD TV, air conditioned), nicely decorated
3. very good breakfast (they also have a terrace where you can enjoy breakfast)
4. a lot of supermarkets (Monoprix as well), restaurants and cafes nearby
5. free wi-fi in the room
6. friendly atmosphere
7. wonderful neighbourhood (Chateau de Vincennes and Bois de Vincennes are a short walk away).
1. there is no sink in the toilet room (the toilet is separate from the shower and sink), therefore you have to touch two doors in order to wash your dirty hands. It seems illogical to me to do that.
2. the manager, although a nice person and willing to help, did not know how the POS worked, therefore I had to talk to my bank 3 days in a row and argue with them because, long story short, when the hotel pre-authorised my card, the cash was blocked and my bank could not unblock it.
Luckily, on our last day there, we found a very knowledgeable lady at the reception, who was able to cash in the money by introducing the initial pre-authorisation code. I was on holiday, so I did not like the fact that I got so upset when I should have relaxed instead.
Note for the hotel: please teach everyone at the reception how to use the POS! Thank you! :)
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel for a visit to Paris!
