The signs were there the moment we stepped out of the metro. The area was filled with homeless and intoxicated people. The hotel receptionist was not very welcoming and I even got told that there were no reservations booked under my name but clearly I was not going to waste my time going there to check in to my hotel room. Then we get our room. Everything was old, dilapidated, wallpapers from the 80's that were peeling off, pillows that are so old and used up that your head literally hits the bed upon laying your head on it, tiles in the bathroom were broken and hanging off. Worst of all they had no air conditioning unit with the heat temperature peaking at 34 deg. So we could not even close the windows otherwise we would have suffocated and burned out from the heat. Meaning we did not sleep for two nights that we were in this hotel. As you can also hear gangs outside the hotel and in the area in general fighting, screaming, shouting, chasing and throwing glass bottles at each other.
Staff is is very good and co-operative.Location is also very good. But hotel is old and needs renovation.
Good hotel with unpleasant neighbourhood”
Generally the staff are polite and helpful. It was a simple room with no much facilities in the room, like lack of dustbin, no boiler, etc. The hotel is located in a red light district area. Therefore, a night out may not be a good option due to safety reason. They were drunken immigrant loitering in the neighbourhood when comes to night time.
Functional convenient hotel with lovely staff”
We stayed here to attend a gig on the Bvd de Clichy. The location was excellent for us and the price good for Paris. Our room was on the first floor and was clean and tidy and comfortable. We did not experience noise with the windows shut (we also put our fan on to create a bit of white noise). You do hear the rumble of the metro and this is not a quiet location, but for what we needed it was great and the staff could not have been more polite and helpful both before and during our stay.

Room has weird smell”
Location, staff and breakfast
The location and the staffs are friendly. However, the room is small and has a weird smell that smells so does the towels.
Holiday in Paris”
Best location, nice food, near to everything
Will go there again if I am in Paris
Staff and Location
I was disappointed with my stay at hotel. Although the room was small which is typical of France the furnishings were seriously outdated.
It would make a big difference if the bedding, bedroom furnishing, and the small antiquated TV was updated, the lack thereof made the Hotel stay painful. Although they provided free breakfast it was a continental breakfast consisting of coffee, juice, bread’s and cereal. The location was great to get places as it was close to the metro. If you get a room street side it is very noisy. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
good stay but little scary”
good and relaxing”
very friendly staff. made you feel like home.
very very attentive staff. esp the one a guy at night. very thoughtful and explained everything in detail.
Great staff, great price considering cost of Paris”
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was reasonable.
Lifts, even though small, but considering the size of buildings in Paris, it is great, as I've read many hotels don't have lifts.
Would definitely stay here again when I come back to Paris. Highly recommended
Friendly, clean hotel near metro station”
Staff, Breakfast, Clean
The area might look a bit rougwe came back quite last a few nights and the people on the streets look harmless. The hotel staff is friendly and the breakfast was nice and adequate. Wifi connection is good, and the rooms are tidy, though a bit old. They do have an old style elevator, those u see on movies, and i think its a cool novelty. The nearest metro station is just less than 5mins walk. Lafayette and Printemps (shopping malls) are still walkable around 20-25mins. They will help you store your luggage if you need more time after you check out. I will stay here again if I come back to Paris.
