After having another thread go violently off the rails, I figure I'll be much more specific :)
Is it worth considering? I'll be in Paris July 5 to 10 with my wife and 6 yr old son. It is our first visit and we want to see all the regular touristy stuff. I *appreciate* good value, and really we only want the hotel for sleeping, showering and storage of our luggage... so I'm fine with basic.
Despite its low price of only C$75/nt (under €50), I think this place looks adorable, and clean and modern and very functional... and I think my kid would find it fun sleeping in a bed above his parents! It has a/c for the July heat. Of course it is small, and it is a bit further from the tourist sites. But it has a train directly adjacent to it so is the location so bad?
I'm hoping for advice on the location and whether this low-priced hotel/brand is something to avoid or not. Of course I realize that there are better hotels out there, so am I being blinded by the low price? Or should it be fine? I like to get the best "bang for the buck", as they say.
Put another way, is it so important to be located directly beside the Louvre (or whatever) and pay 5x to 10x as much vs 20 extra minutes on the metro? (am I underestimating the inconvenience of Paris public transit?)
