“Nice location well connected”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

I stayed there with my friends in the triple room, it was a very good bargain nothing fancy though. However, the location is very good we were able to move all around Paris using the subway in relatively good time. Also the staff were friendly and helpful.
I think it's good place for short stay.

This hotel is perfect if you want to visit Paris on a budget. It is directly across the road from the main metro station at Gare de l'est so finding the hotel was no problem, this also meant that we literally had to cross the road to get anywhere we wanted in the city using the metro.

Our triple room was spacious, bright, modern and immaculate with a flat screen TV and a large bathroom - we even had a mini bar!!

What made our stay at this hotel however, was how absolutely lovely the staff were. They were extremely helpful and accommodating and had a great sense of humor which was extremely refreshing seeing as in my opinion, the majority of Parisians were cold and distant!

I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Paris.

Pros :

Next to train station - Metro and the main - Gare D'lest.
Cafe next door.
Food around the hotel.
Large rooms. (we got a double room with bath)
Better than average TV channels.
With fridge, heatre works fine.
Generally clean and everything is in working order.
Free consistent wifi
The manager and two of his staff bald chap and the one with glasses)
were extremely helpful. 5 stars for the service.

Cons :
Surrounding can get a little rough at night.
Room was facing front so its a little noisy if you open the windows.
But all is ok if you close it - double pane glass windows.
No kettle.
Walls a little thin ... you know what I mean. :)

Theres four people who tend the recept.
The last one out of the three mentioned earlier was a real pain,
totally not helpful at all. Asked if he could help us call a restaurant to confirm our resevartion as we don't speak french and he told us to call from the room as he was
not going to call for us because he was not going make any money if he made the call.


Advise :
Get the rooms facing the back. (Brother took the single room facing back)
Its a lot quieter although you sacrifice the bath.
The toilets are also recently renovated there.

The hotel is almost inside the metro station, but the neighborhood is dirty and far from the main attractions. The staff is not so helpful as we wished.

+ The best thing about this hotel was that the metro station is just near the house. The room was small but clean.
- One of the staff is really impolite and very arrogant. Terrible attitude.
The walls were so thin that you could clearly hear other people talking.

Reviewed 19 September 2009

We stayed for five nights at this hotel, which is perfectly located right in front of a subway station, 7 minutes away from Paris downtown. We took a bus from the Charles de Gaulle airport for a few euros, and the Gare d'Est bus station is 25 meters from the hotel entrance.
The service was great, there was always someone at the reception desk. The surroundings are not the greatest, but we never felt unsafe in the area. There are a lot of restaurants within 5 minutes of walking, some with pretty decent prices (for Paris).
The breakfast is pretty basic, but it's 7 euros.
The room we stayed in was small, but not as small as I thought after reading some reviews in here. It's a pretty basic hotel, the washroom was refurbished long time ago, but was functional.
The bed sheets were never changed for the duration of our stay, which was a minus. Other than that, the hotel was OK. We would go there again.

Reviewed 10 December 2008

We were 4 of our family booked 2 rooms for 3 nights and 4 days during may 2008. Front desk was able to provide 2 adjacent rooms. One room was very small, bath was further small.

The rooms were neat and kept clean throughout our stay.
Lift was small but okay, was working well. front desk was helpful.

Advantage is the proximity to the metro which is right in front.
The disadvantage if i can say is the frequency of L'open tour buses to this area is poor. But the bus stop is near to this hotel.

Soundproofing of the walls are inadequate. We have to bear the the noises of the honeymoon couple next room

If one can discount the both it would be a perfect stay.

  • Liked — Price and proximity to metro
  • Disliked — sound proof
