This hotel has nice photos online about the rooms, but that is not what was I found. I agreed to pay more for this hotel, and looked like it would be a better quality hotel for a nice stay in Paris. Ok, it is Paris, and it was across the street from a train station and Metro stop, but it is still not worth the cost. The room was remarkably small, barely larger than the double bed. The room seemed unfinished, lacking paint in places on walls, no moldings, rough edges to the carpeting. In the hallway there were bare bulbs hanging from the walls and ceilings. There are many better places to stay for less money in Paris, give this place a skip.
I'm an American girl that stayed at this hotel recently with limited knowledge of French. I greatly appreciated the friendly and patient staff. They made me feel comfortable and at home during my stay. My room was much bigger than I expected for a small hotel in the city. It had a large bed with a warm comforter, a decent sized closet, a desk, and a nice bathroom. The shower was a little tight but since it was just me, I didn't mind it. Water pressure was strong, water was always nice and hot, and the room had a heater/air conditioner. The location of the hotel is what really sold me. It's on a street with many restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, and a subway station just a short walk away. I always felt safe, even at night walking home by myself. Personally I enjoy walking while exploring a new city, so for me all the big sights were walking distance away. If I didn't feel like walking, I'd just take that short walk to the station and take a train. However, a small negative is that the walls of this hotel were very thin, and you can hear the slightest noise from the rooms down the hall. The only thing that concerned me was that coming to my room one night after housekeeping, my door was left slightly ajar. Luckily nothing was stolen and there was no one waiting for me inside, but I didn't feel comfortable having housekeeping come in after that. Overall, I had a very lovely stay and I would recommend this to anyone traveling alone, whether on business or vacation.
We only stayed one night, but the woman who checked us in was incredibly nice and helpful. She set up our shuttle for our morning departure to the airport and recommended restaurants for our dinner. The room was comfortable and very clean. They even had cozy bathrobes and comfy slippers! There was an ottoman that folded out onto a perfect sized cot for our son... I had expected to have the three of us squeezed into the double bed for the night, so it was a nice surprise. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the street noise since the hotel is on a major thoroughfare and is across from a train station and near a hospital. But, with the windows closed (you have the option to open them which is nice) the sound is tolerable. I slept quite soundly!
It is a very small room, but everything is very modern, and it is in such a good location, its subway station when you walk out the hotel, so you have a lot of opportunities to visit different part of Paris. Also, the staff are very nice and friendly! I told them my room is smelly, they instantly changed it for me. I appreciate that!
