Such a great experience to be here. Easy to get to from the train station. Actually all subways in Paris are easy to navigate. The hotel is really close to everything, Eiffel, Champs Elysees, Arc de Triumph. And lots of Brasseries. Markets, bakeries and coffee shops. A safe neighbourhood. The room was great. Very comfortable beds. A breakfast is only $10EU each daily, far more cost effective than buying outside the hotel. Save your money for lunch or dinner. Lovely staff, so very friendly and helpful. This is a family owned and managed hotel. We'll go back here for sure.

This hotel is located at a very good location (several metro stations within a few minutes walk), the street is quiet and there are shops, restaurants and a bakery nearby. Eiffel Tower is just a 15 minute walk. Bikes (velib) can be found in the next street. The staff was great, very friendly and they all spoke English. The hotel as well as the rooms is really small but you are in Paris and the room is the last place you want to be and the least time you should spend in. The room was small but clean and neat. Some mold on the ceiling in the bathroom, but nothing alarming. The door to the room did not close well and in the night one could see light from the corridor coming through the gap. There is a small courtyard behind the hotel with 4-5 tables to enjoy a cup of coffee or other drink.

We stayed at this hotel in our recent trip to Paris, it’s a very small hotel but maintained well and all the staff we encountered are very friendly. The rooms are small but ok for a couple who is spending most of the time out of the hotel, the walls are thin so you do have to be careful about how much noise you are making. There’s a lovely cat that lives in the hotel as well. Breakfast was basic but fine if your just running out of the door. The location is close to the Eiffel Tower and a street of local shops and places to eat. Wouldn’t recommend this hotel if you don’t like to leave your room key at reception everytime you leave the premises. The shower in our room was fantastic and now we would love one at home! This hotel is perfect for sleeping and exploring the city with no real outside noise from the street below. It’s budget friendly perfect for a short stay in Paris. We would go back again as it was exactly what we wanted in a hotel.

I stayed at this hotel just for one night and liked it. Stepping into the hotel I was a bit weary of what to expect, but my room turned out to be really nice, clean and modern, and with a kettle to make some tea. Exactly what I needed!

This little hotel has been renovated. It is very friendly. Clean and very well located. 15 mns walk to the Tour Eiffel. Quite suburb as well. Breakfast is nice and convenient. Staff is very friendly and can't do enough to help.

We booked this hotel based on the pictures on Booking.com and the picture of the beautiful little courtyard sucked us in, but the dim lighting in those pictures sure hid a lot. Pros: good location and within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower - staff were always very pleasant and helpful - they did a bathroom remodel which was a nice touch but one of the most important areas was the stairs which really need a remodel - the price was right and if you had nowhere else to stay would be an option, unless you have pet allergies beware as they have a hotel cat that is free to roam around the hotel, even the small continental breakfast area. Cons: - no restaurant or bar on site which was shown on one of my searches on Booking.com and I have a screenshot of it, ended up calling booking.com once we saw where we had been placed but they said that didn't mean it was "on site" no help there..... - rickety worn stairs that you have to walk to get to your room unless you want to be brave and take the rickety lift which can only handle two people or one person with luggage, archaic!!! - lighting was so dim going upstairs to our rooms and in the narrow hallway on our floor, it was a tripping hazard since they used motion lights!!! Lights should always be on in the hallway and stairwell, this is a danger and I feel they are cutting corners and sacrificing safety. - The courtyard was a welcome escape from our dreary surroundings but it was marred by the strange "guest" who lived in the cottage with no room number in the courtyard and he would sit and smoke while scratching his head and stare at us, it made us all very uncomfortable. - I put a "do not disturb" sign on our room while we went out for the day and when we came back the room had been made up and someone had touched my personal belongings, not impressed. DO not disturb means stay out of my room!!!!! - we weren't happy with having to give our keys back to the front desk staff every time we wanted to leave the hotel, then when we came back we were given our key but sometimes I was worried they could've given it to anyone, plus our keys were on display at all times to anyone walking in. Also they would lock the hotel door so we would have to ring to get back in day or night, kind of worried this was a bad area?? - rooms not very soundproof, could hear lots of doors banging and people in the next room. - our top sheet had a horrible stain on it and the towels never smelled clean.

Overall, this wasn't the best hotel where we have stayed. Pricing was right, and the quality of the room was average. We didn't like at all to be requested to leave the keys in reception every time we went outside. The best of all was its location.

Pros: - excellent location with boulangeries and metros - the bed was comfortable - bathroom was new and modern - staff spoke english and we're very nice and helpful - wifi worked well and you get instructions on how to use it from the staff cons: - the bathroom being modern didn't really fit in with the rest of the decor which was quite old - the hallway was old, dusty and shabby, the stairs even so and you had to use them because the elevator was small and in the mornings full of cleaner lady's stuff - ac didn't really work, it was 33C all the time! - didn't really like leaving my room key hanging on the wall in the reception for everyone to see overall: - if you're not willing to spend too much money on accommodation and still get a decent place to stay, this would be a nice choice nevertheless!

This hotel is outstanding except for that elevator. The hotel is very strategically located in a very nice english speaking area of Paris. You have everything you need within a few walks from the hotel. Cafe's, Boulangeries, the Metro, Laundry, McDonalds, Starbuck, Grocery and the Eiffel tower, which is why you are here, is almost 10mins walk from the hotel. The room is very cozy and modern in design, however there is a strong smell of Marijuana/Weed in that tight little hallway as you enter your room. The furnishings are new and also the bed is comfortable, very nice to sleep into after a long day of travel and you will not get high from the smell. The staff are just amazing, Chris is very superb and the pretty madameoiselle, forgot her name, all very helpful and kind. I saw a grumpy looking american fretting over the check-in talking english looking frustrated as if they want to impress this young lad with his excellent American english. It's not a good reason to give them a 1 star if you can't understand them, try learning french for a change. Internet is very slow so don't bother since you will be out and about most days anyway. The only thing I could say about this hotel is that stupid elevator. One can get really claustrophobic with that elevator, maybe they used to use it to transport victims to a torture level of some sort. It fits literally just 2 people, I am not sure why this type of elevator is even allowed in Paris. As with all hotels, they charge you an arm and a leg for breakfast which is convenient, or you can soak up the culture by going outside as this hotel is literally surrounded by local bakeries, you are in Boulange area after all. Overall, it serves it's purpose plus more, great value, will definitely recommend.

This is a bare-bones hotel - literally. Through the walls and ceilings you can hear any noise anybody might be making on the other side. On my first afternoon there was noisy construction work until at least 7 p.m. During my second night I was woken at 5.45 a.m. by the guests in the room above mine making a lot of noise. Also, my bathroom was very cold and the bedroom was also rather cool. The whole inside of the building had a shabby feel. On the plus side, the mattress was comfortable and the staff was polite and helpful. There are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. I did not try the breakfast.
