Great location near metro station but far enough away from tourist attractions. Staff was very kind!

Very nice quaint hotel, I enjoyed my stay and the staff were very helpful as well.

The room was a bit small but it was pretty clean and comfortable. They ran out of creamer but the receptionist gave me some milk instead which was nice. It was very close to a convenient store (Franprix) which made it easy to go out and get water (since there is no room service or mini bar) and other items. Also there was a boulangerie where we could get croissants and other pastries a few doors down which mad it convenient for an easy, quick breakfast.

The staff was the best.and most accommodating on anything we needed assistance.

Pros: Very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was clean and modern. There was a small safe in the room closet. Hotel was within quick walking distance to two Metro stations. It's in a relatively safe neighborhood, away from tourist areas. We never felt unsafe walking back from the Metro stations at night. Cons: The room was on the small side. We were in a room with two twin beds pushed together, leaving not a lot of room for other things. But that was ok, because the beds were comfortable. We were there to tour Paris. Just needed a comfortable bed and clean showers. Conclusion: Good value for the money. Even though it's not in the tourist area, two Metro stations were nearby with easy rides or connections to all attractions. The hotel offered breakfast options (not free). We never ate there so cannot rate the food. We got our breakfast from a patisserie nearby on our way to the Metro station. Overall, a good experience.

A perfect hotel for a short stay. Very comfortable bed, modern bathroom, helpful staff, and good walking location. We were very pleased. Room was tiny but manageable and did have a king bed. Lots of old world charm and a pretty view, too. They even provided a thick terry robe and slippers. Great value.

It was fantastic and exactly what I needed for my four days in Paris, traveling alone.

I have to admit that I am a lousy tourist, and that anywhere I stay is nicer than my own dwelling. That being said, Boulevard Voltaire is a relatively quiet street, and a bakery called "Le Puits d'Amour" is right next door. I live on pain au chocolat when in France, and theirs was wonderful. The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer, and even left me a joyeux anniversaire balloon in my room, I having mentioned that I came to France to turn sixty (malheureusement). If you stay here, the nearest subway stop is Rue du Boulets and not Boulevard Voltaire, by the way. My room, and I assume all the rooms, had an easy to operate safe, a nice feature, and probably the reason I never lost my passport. If you're an opera buff, Opera Bastille is nearby: take the street behind the flower shop and keep walking. There is also an Irish pub, Corcoran's, where you can find Guinness and people who speak English, not that I have a problem with French people speaking their native language in their native country. There is also a nice butcher/cheese shop next to the hotel, all of whose employees seem to be picked from male modelling agencies or rugby teams. I had a good time and brought back the kitschy presents people who have never been anywhere seem to need. Refrigerator magnets of art masterpieces are my preference.

The hotel was great except for the issue we had with the ac for the first three days we were there. However, the issue was resolved. It is very close to the metro and plenty of cafes around. Extremely safe area with beautiful buildings lining the streets. The metro close by has multiple lines that can get you anywhere.

Very good experience in France, the place was clean and the bed was great.

Would stay again. Staff was always helpful. Room was very clean. Cozy but bathroom was a good size. Had a double twin room- 506. Overlooked a courtyard and the back of hotel. Burned off the baked goods taking the stairs! Great neighborhood for shops and restaurants. Metros in either direction. Wonderful bakery next door. Really no complaints, aside from wifi wasn't the strongest in room but I had a travel plan with my carrier.

Staffs were very helpful & provided recommendations. They also made reservations for us to number of great restaurants. They made our first European vacation very memorable.

The hotel is decorated very lovely. It is clean and located next to a metro station. The rooms are gorgeous and very clean. The staff was great very helpful even opening a nottle of wine for us and knowledgeable about the city. In English. Would stay there again

We stayed here over Thanksgiving week and had no complaints. Our room (001) was larger than the average and on the first floor. Metro is just a few blocks away. Would recommend.

The hotel is conveniently located near public transportation (underground train). It is located in a Jewish neighborhood (good Jewish cafe nearby) in Paris, where most people speak French only (very little English). I chose this hotel for that reason. I did not want to be a "catered to" tourist. I don't speak French so I had to visit a few restaurants before I found one where someone spoke enough English for me to be able to order food (menus in French only). Fortunately, the hotel staff speaks English. Very clean rooms. I had a single, which was chic and very small. It is truly made for one person. I enjoyed the room. Comfortable bed. The front desk staff was very friendly, with the exception of one person. Maybe it was the language barrier or maybe she's just not as friendly as the rest of the staff. She also wanted to charge me 10 euros cash to borrow a charger, stating that the money would be returned when I finished using the charger. I declined because I did not have cash. The other staff did not charge me 10 euros. I was dubious about her request for 10 euros and now I am even more dubious about her intentions.

Assuming you have been forewarned about how small the hotels are in France, this may be considered a nice hotel just a 3 minute walk away from access to train and subway. Cleanest carpets in all of France. Great deli and bakery right next door. But it did have some bad points: Very thin walls and room not much larger than the queen bed inside of it. Had to close the bathroom door to get to the sink and the shower stall was a bit tight. I'm about 215 lbs and didn't have any critical issues but I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone over 250 lbs. The bed was comfy, but the pillows were some sort of synthetic fill that made them feel a bit like balloons. The hotel seemed very concerned with electricity conservation: the common area lights were on motion sensors, which made getting up and down the stairs a bit tricky since their sensors sucked. You also had to insert your keycard into the wall to turn on the power to the room - not a unique concept in a European hotel, but an annoying one never-the-less, especially if you forget to pull the card before leaving, also made the use of the small peltier fridge a bit, well, risky. You also had to tell them your room number before leaving the hotel...I have no idea what that was about.

Very nice hotel close to the Nation metro stop. The staff was excellent and always helpful. We would stay there again. There was confusion on the room (superior room is very tiny), but we moved to a larger room and were very comfortable. The staff also pointed us to some nice restaurants right around the hotel that we would have never visited without their recommendation.
