Highly Recommended

- Excellent and convenient location. - Walking distance to central sights. - Easy to collect room key even though other reviews may state otherwise. Prior arrangement with the hotel is necessary. - Very close to Mouffetard district which has fantastic and extremely reasonable restaurants (c. €13 pp for trad. French 3 course meal.) - Cutlery, kettle etc, even corkscrew provided. - No air con but a very adequate fan provided.

great location

The hotel was perfect for travelers that aren't planning on spending a lot of time at their hotel. It is right next to a Metro, RER, train stop, park and food. There is a private bathroom and fridge.

The hotel is perfect for travelers arriving to Paris via train. The Metro stop is the same line for 3 train stops and is extremely close. The hotel is also right on the river for travelers that like to walk.

an okay place to stay

This hotel is kinda blah. Really feels like a 2 star hotel, but it's Paris, so I guess I can't ask for much for the price I paid. But it is about 15 mins to the Eifel Tower, so that's a plus. There is a Carefour about 2-3 blocks away, so definitely go there to pick up snack and beverages. The prices there are very good.

Walking is really a much better option than driving around Paris. The hotel is about 15 mins from the Tower and 30 mins from the Louvre.

Great Hotel for the price

Like all other post have said the room is small and beds do creek [...]. Very clean and it was so great to have the kitchen in paris. It helped to save a lot of money. Kitchen includes only enough dishes for two people. I would recomend this hotel.

Not bad at all

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. This place is not really a hotel. It is an apartment building. The room was cozy, with a pull-out bed, full kitchen, and a bathroom. And yes, the bed is squeaky, but only if you..."make it squeak." ;) Pros: - It felt very homey. We completely unloaded our suitcases in the bathroom and closet. -It is literally right around the corner from a main metro stop and walking distance to the riverfront and Notre Dame. There is also a bike rental station just in front of the entrance. - The front desk lady was very helpful and uses perfect English. Cons: - The area dies down at night. I thought the building was in the Latin Quarter, but it is actually just outside. Also, the train stops running just before 1am. So if you want to party late at night, you will have to walk back or take a taxi. Walking did feel pretty safe. - The rooms were spotless, but there was a strange, but faint odor in the room. It may have been an old cleaning product or a bad mop. We had to open a window.

Good location, but you won't sleep well

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to Gare d'Austerlitz, which was very convenient for us. But the beds were very uncomfortable.

Awesome!

Great desk service and location. Across from train and metro station. Loved having a kitchen. There is no cleaning unless you stay longer than a week. Internet is extra and by the hour. Awesome security. Felt very safe here.

Clean, Quiet- great location

This was a perfect room for a hot shower and some sleep. Close to Gard D' Austerlitz train station/metro. The room overlooked a quiet street across from the Jardin De Plantes and the Museum of Natural History. It had a kitchenette which we didn't use but it was an ideal place for reenergizing and reviving our tired touring bodies after touring the city of Paris. I would stay there again for sure.
