                      It's easy, inexpensive, unpretentious, straightforward. Although a little out of the way, it is still convenient and in a neighborhood that is quickly becoming gentrified.

                      The beds are very narrow. But that is not unusual!

                      The hotel was really clean and modern. The hotel staff all spoke English and went out of their way to help you. The free breakfast was also awesome. For Europe, this is a very comfortable hotel.

                      The location is kind of weird as the hotel is located on this back alley that is really hard to find without GPS. When we were there (November 2012), the street was being ripped out and there was heavy construction. If you're looking for a hotel where you can spend most of your time within a few blocks of the hotel, this is not the place. However, the hotel is located right next to the Bonne Nouvelle Metro Station, so if your goal is just to spend the entire trip site seeing in Paris, the location is pretty convenient because you have easy access to the Metro.

                      The hotel is just 5 minutes walk from the train station. It was ideal for us as we were taking the Eurostar train from London to Paris. The outside of the hotel doesn't look very promising but the room was perfect - clean, modern and new facilities. There was no traffic to hear and we felt very comfortable. The metro is just 2 mins away and it takes no time to hit the shopping area & the opera house. We had a perfect weekend.

                      Calm quiet and roomy. Covenient for Gares de l'Est and du Nord. Very well upgraded. A well designed and equipped room and an excellent bathroom. Good breakfast buffet. Helpful efficient staff

                      Although this is certainly better than many overnight stops I have had in Paris, it is quite a lot more expensive and I'm not sure that the difference in standard is sufficient to justify the very large difference in price. Towels in the bathroom could have been more generously sized. Many hotels that aim to attract business travelers now provide wireless internet as part of the service and the charges levied here seem high and unnecessary. The management can't do much about this last point, but the streets around the hotel seem to attract a lot of over-enthusiastic partying - certainly on a Friday evening - which can make the experience of reaching it, or going out to eat, a little alarming.

                      Hi. A very pleasant Hotel. A nice welcome and our two rooms (5 persons) were ready when we arrived at midday for our one night stay. Facilities were excellent. Bedrooms clean and well appointed. Quite area with good air conditioning in rooms. Thank you.

                      Good and clean bathroom. Decoration was fine, and overall it was comfortable.

                      In Paris everything is a bit more expensive than normal- so was this Hotel. Stayed in a 4 people room in a roof that didn't smell that well but was okay and had enough space for all. Main problems were at the reception: they charged the credit card without our permission! When we got there to pay... It was "already paid"!!

                      Very good stay. Good size rooms and in a very quiet location, both of which are unusual for Paris. Only slight down side is that the area itself is okay rather than great. Overall I saw this as a fair trade off versus size, price and noise levels. Definitely recommended and I would stay there again.

                      The cleanliness of the room, modern room fixtures.

                      Location wasn't great, the streets are small and it's quite hidden. We did choose something close to Gare de Nord, but it was still a bit of a trek walking there. Construction work on the way too. The breakfast area is right opposite (litterally) of the hotel reception desk.

                      The hotel is in a good location, near a number of restaurants and Metro lines, yet very quiet. Our room was fairly large for Paris standards, and well-furnished. The beds were good.

                      The consierge who checked me in was wonderful. The one who checked us out was pleasant, but a bit grumpy. Overall, I would stay there again except it was a bit on the expensive side!

                      The hotel and room was clean and quiet.
