I booked this hotel based purely on cost and location - we needed to be close to Bastille and this was a great deal. On arrival it looks a bit basic, tiny lift and dark corridors but we were greeted by lovely front desk staff and shown to our room - be aware there is work going on next door so rooms closer to the lift are a little quieter (we were still awoken at 730am by the workmen but we had an early start and the noise is manageable).
The rooms are small but light and well equipped (tv/safe/mini fridge). Super comfortable beds and clean, fresh linens. We had a newly refurbed bathroom with a great shower. There's shower gel/shampoo but you do need to bring your own toiletries. Proper hairdryer (hurrah!).
The staff (esp Benjamin) are exceptionally helpful - we arrived early but were checked in no problem and on our last day they were happy to let us stay in our room till 2pm without issue - always a sign of a cooperative, customer focused hotel for me. Special mention also to Isabel who gave us a bottle of water each for our journey back to the Airport.
Excellent location - just a short walk to two Metro stations and very close to cafe's, bars, banks and shops.
Would happily stay again at this great little hotel. We really enjoyed our stay.
