A very nice hotel, near the subway station. Good neighbourhood, nice staff and very well decorated rooms. A lot of shops and restaurants near it. Also there is a police station across the road if it makes you feel more safer :)

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-October. As mentioned in some other reviews don't go by the official pictures - the rooms may have looked like that once but they certainly don't any more. Other than this and the same leaking shower issue I have no complaints with what is overall a very comfortable, friendly and well-located little hotel in...

We stayed 5 nights in late Sept. Pictures on the web are very deceiving! Our room was nothing like this! It was clean though and the bathroom quite large. Wi -fi was great and we found the staff helpful. The location is quite good and close to the Metro...only 3 stops and your in the Latin Quarter. The hotel could...

There's nothing fancy about the hotel, but it's a decent place to stay. It's very close to the metro (Place d'Italie stop) and within walking distance to many cafes and restaurants. Free wifi. No english speaking channels on TV. Tiny elevator which stops in between floors so you still have to carry your suitcase up or down a few stairs....

Hotel is situated in a good area of the city with easy access to metro. For a 2 star hotel there are quite good conditions. Rooms are clean and tidy although quite small (not surprising for Paris). Personal is friendly and helpful. Did not take breakfast there so I don't know what to say about it. On the bad side...

My husband and I stayed in 4 different hotels as we toured through England and France. This was the most disappointing of the lot. Our room did not match any of the pictures - it was shabby, the carpet was stained (we did not take our shoes off - not trusting what was on the carpet), the shower ceiling was...

It's clean and the staff is friendly - that's more than you'll get in many hotels in Paris. The rooms and bathrooms are a little small, the elevator tiny and slow and the stairs wonky, but this is Paris so get used to it unless you want to pay top dollar. We were pleasantly surprised by what we got for...
