Grerat place to stay in Paris

The hotel is very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful, and the location is great (a five-minute walk to Pompideau and right next to the metro). The breakfast is outstanding. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone planning a visit to Paris.

Excellent location, comfortable simple hotel

The hotel is small, but comfortable, not cramped. It was clean, the staff friendly, and while a modest place, it was all I needed. The location is great and EXTREMELY easy to reach from the drop off by RoissyBus at Opera, then a single subway train to the Arts et Metiers stop, up from the subway and it's across the street from one of the two exits at that stop. The wonderful Industrial Arts museum is about 100 feet away. It's a 20-minute walk to Notre Dame, or a quick subway ride to the incomparable Museum of Comparative Anatomy. :). There's a Carrefour market a 2-minute walk away and the pub across the street is good. I'd absolutely stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Roissy Bus is the best way to go to/from the airport into Paris. The bus stops near subway stations or city bus stops and is far less expensive than a taxi.

A Great Value in a Great Location

This is clean, comfortable, friendly hotel in a good central location. Nothing luxurious here, but the room was spacious (by European standards) and bright with ample storage and a decent bed. The bathroom had a lovely large shower. The staff was attentive and accommodating of my poor French. A complementary petit dejeuner is served in the basement, but I never tried it. The elevator is minuscule (4 passengers max), so if you're traveling in a larger group that might be an annoyance.

Great price in a central location

Simple room but larger than most I've stayed in in Paris. Breakfast fare ranges from breads and pastries to yogurts and fruits. For the price (10 euros on 10/2014), it is a good, convenient deal to get ready for a day of walking and touring. Coffee and juice are also included. 24-hour reception is friendly and helpful for any local questions. An easy walk to the Marais and the Chatelet/Les Halles areas where your dining and entertainment options range from touristy to trendy.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are looking for amazingly fresh fish ceviches and small plates, seek out the not-too-far Fish Club on Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau. After living on the coast of California, I've been spoiled for fish options. Finding reasonably priced options (especially sushi, ceviche, and "fresh enough to be eaten raw") has been a challenge. However, Fish Club gets it. Not inexpensive, but you certainly taste the quality of the fish and the preparations.

Great location

Rooms are clean & come with blow dryer and minimal hygiene kit. Free Wi-Fi & friendly staff. Free steps from metro station and great Boulangerie. Non - touristy neighborhood gives you the real feel of Paris.

Good hotel in great area!

I would suggest this hotel for sure. Price vs value is certainly great. Excellent location. One can actually walk to all sightseeings in downtown. The room was actually in decent size, although bathroom was small. Again, this is very Parisian - nothing large as US there at all. If you over 250 lbs then there might be a problem to get into shower room. Internet connection was great. Breakfast was so so, but for 10 euros there was nothing better in the neighborhood, so I would certainly recommend.

Great Bargain

This is a great deal. Clean rooms, great shower, very conveniently located. I would avoid the breakfast as you can eat more cheaply elsewhere.

Great for what it is

This is a small, well-kept at the Arts et Metiers metro stop in Paris. The surrounding area is nice with several cafes, stores, etc. (not to mention Musee des Arts et Metiers) and a short walk or metro ride from major tourist attractions. The room was quite small, but clean and comfortable. There's free and functional wireless internet. Staff members can speak English well. My only complaint is that they asked you to leave your key at the desk when leaving the building. This did not turn out to be a problem as the desk is staffed 24/7, but I prefer to hold the key myself. If you're just looking for a relatively cheap place that you won't spend a whole lot of time in, this is a great choice. But, if you're looking to spend a lot of time in a fancy hotel with a lot of amenities, this is not place for you.

Very nasty staff, can be a killer of your vacation

I ordered a room for 1 (double bed) at Austins Arts et Metiers for about 120$/day for 5 days (conference). My wife and me managed to organize that she will join me for the last 3 days. I didn’t change the order, thinking it will not be a deal if she join at the room (no breakfast), or they will ask for some minor edition (10-20$/day). At the night my wife came the man at the desk said no problem. A day after they asked for an edition of not less than 56$/day (there are no edition expenses at their end). We were shocked and asked for rethinking the price because it was a ridiculously high in compare to the price diffrences for 1 and 32 persons in a room at Cheap Tickets. They became nasty and let us feel we are thieves or people with no honor. The staff were not willing to compromise the price nor to let us speak with the manager. At last we paid the 56$/day * 3days and promised ourselves we will at least lower their rate at Cheap Tickets. The staff were so hostile it really ruined one of our 3 precious days in Paris. DONT TAKE THIS HOTEL and keep up your smile.

the free (except tip) walking tours guided by young student that grew up and study in Paris are good. Google it for details.
