We came to Paris for the romantic four day stay. I found the place on line and booked it thinking it was worth the above average price judging from the photos. It was our first stay in Paris as a couple, it should be special, I thought to my self. First let down was looking for the place for an...

Dear guest We thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay in our hotel in october 2015. Your comments and remarks are very useful to us. Since October 2015, our receptionist team has changed. Our chambermaid manager takes more care to control the rooms. Our rooms are indeed quite small but are in the regular...

Very good overall, nice refurbished rooms, great location in terms of transport and area, not touristy, but yet a bit too small. We missed the complimentary refreshments, but I would still recommend for nice weekend.

Good for a stay away from the touristy parts of town. The hotel staff was very pleasant, helpful and warm - had a nice personal feel. Very close to local restaurants (French, Asian, bakeries) and a pleasant walk to Rue Mouffetard if you feel like something more touristy (there are some nice speciality food shops) and then an easy walk...

The only not so good is the size of the room. But this is Paris. It is very convenient with 3 lines of metro just 5 minutes away at Place d'Italie. I enjoyed this hotel and will be back. Fresh croissant for breakfast and very helpful employees.

The staff were extremely helpful. I have limited French and they were great. Situations changed between booking and arriving so when I arrived I was in a wheelchair. The staff gave us the choice of three rooms so I could pick what was easiest, the lift was too small (not uncommon for Paris) so I went for the ground floor...
