Recent guest reviews

We spent 5 nights in the hotel. Family of 2 adults and 3 kids. I asked for 2 rooms next to each other in advance but i didn't't get. In the end it wasn't't to bad. Very nice and not big hotel .located next to a metro station. Nice small and clean rooms.

We loved staying at this hotel. The staff were very friendly, kindly, warm and helpful. Our room was clean and spotless. The location was great, 5 minute walk to the Gobelins metro stop. We will definitely go there again when we visit Paris. The concierge, Jean Marc, was particularly friendly and very helpful with any questions we might have.

the hotel itself is simple, with good bed and functional bathroom, What make this hotel super nice its the people at the front desk. Always ready to help even with silly questions! I will come back for sure.

The hotel is easy to find, just some 300 m from Metro Les Gobelins. The check-in was quite swift. The room was tiny, but enough for sleeping. Decently furnished. The immediate surroundings were nice, but nothing special. Quite a lot of restaurants, cafeteria and boulangeries. We didn't try breakfast at the hotel, but went out. The staff was friendly, the rooms were well cleaned.

We have spent two nights there. Nothing to comment on cleanliness and staff's politeness but the room was amazingly small. The bed itself occupies 90% of the surface of the entire room. Very difficult to live in two people inside that room. Same situation for the bathroom. Not worth for the money they ask for.

I would recommend this hotel if you are not intending to spend all your days in your room. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. What made this hotel special was the front desk staff, they were all very helpful and friendly. Also for a non French speaker it was a relief that they spoke excellent English. The breakfast was good, not possibly worth 9€ but as I was lazy I had it every morning. Be aware the eggs are raw and you need to boil them in a egg boiling device. As a location it was perfect for what we were there for (ice hockey World Champs) as it was close to the arena. The metro stops are close by so it was easy to travel from the area. It was a clean and quiet area so I would most probably stay there again and if so would definitely stay in the same hotel. We took a taxi from Montmatre and it was cheap. If I remember right it was about 15€ which was very reasonable. All in all very good, did the job, was very reasonable price and loved the front desk staff. Not a family hotel though!

This hotel was recommended by a friend...and it was perfect for our stay in Paris. Rooms are very small but clean and adequate. Staff are very friendly and willing to help. Room faced road and was above a sidewalk café which was a bit noisy. No air conditioners...only a fan...and it was hot! Otherwise a great place to stay.Very close to Metro station and train station.

The hotel is situated very closely to the metro station and has an abundance of Restuarants in close proximity! We walked from the main centre of Paris home and it was a most enjoyable walk albeit long! Hotel room are clean and the serve a filling breakfast!

This is the first hotel we've stayed at in France and it was a great experience. The front desk staff were amazing, friendly, and gave us some advice on recommendations on where to go in the neighbourhood. The rooms are older and smaller than the Canadian hotels we are used to which is as to be expected here from what I've read. But they were nicely decorated, clean, and had air conditioning. We had a great view from our top (6th) floor room and could see the Eiffel Tower in the distance. We took the RER from the airport which was very convenient and cost 10€ and then a bus three stops from the RER station to the hotel for 1.80€ but in hindsight it would have been a short walk. From the hotel, it was just over an hour to walk to the Eiffel Tower and about 25 minutes to Notre Dame. But there are lots of transit options nearby including the Les Gobelins Metro station.

Nice place and room, despite the small space. Clean bathroom, nice personnel and good breakfast. Good location close enough to different metro and bus stations. I would suggest this hotel for single travellers and couples. Given the small rooms I would say it is a good stay for 1 to 3 nights.
