This hotel is so conveniently located! There are two metro stations for two different lines within a block from the hotel. It's in a comfortable neighborhood with plenty of dining options nearby as well. The front desk staff was really helpful from before we arrived until we left. They gave us advice about transportation from the train station and to the airport that was invaluable.
Good overnight hotel. We had a room with three single beds. Plenty of room for three adults. Located between two metro stations. Check in is at 2pm but we were able to store a luggage at the front desk at our 11am arrival and head out to explore Paris.
WE have stayed at this hotel on 3 Paris trips. The rooms are average Paris 3-star hotel size--small, but not as small as many. The management has gone to some effort to modernize the decor and it has improved nicely since the last time we were here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The main selling point for us is the location. It is not in the heart of the city but is rather close to the peripherique, but has a metro entrance quite literally out the front door. Tram across the street. Pastry shops, restaurants, pharmacies, food markets, etc., all within a few minutes walk. It's almost the end of the metro line so there is always a seat to be had when taking the metro to other parts of Paris. The convenience of the location is what sells us every time. When reserving a room though I would request a rear room, away from the streets.
I spent only oe night in this hotel, I have to say that the place is very nice, a little tight in spaces in general but vey pretty, clean and well located. In general everything OK. Except for the day that I was leaving, ehre I asked the girl in the front desk about timings and ways to get to Orly Arport at certain hour. She first told me that it could take up to 2 hours to get there! I didn´t believe this was right but I didn´t want to undermine Paris´s rush traffic, so I booked the taxi considering 1,5 hours. Then I asked her about the fare, adn if it was fixed, etc. He told me that it should be around 40-55 EUR (quite a wide range to me...). At the end it only took 25 minutes to get to the airport and it only costs 30 EUR (...). It is a shame that people in the hotel have such an uncertainty on important traveler information.
Have stayed here twice now most recently 2 weeks ago. Staff as always very pleasant and accommodating. Hotel is in a very French neighborhood and has everything you could want on the same street-restaurants, grocery store, patisserie etc. Because the street is very busy it can be a bit noisy at times but I would still recommend it highly. I hope to return again in April 2016.

Front desk staff friendly and very helpful. Special thanks to Valerie and Florian who had the patience to answer our so many tourists questions and directions. They were friendly & professional.
Safe area, police station a few blocks away. Convenient to metro: a few steps away. Plenty of bakeries and cafes within short walking distance.
stayed 6 nights. Would definitely stay again. Great location, steps to Metro and short walk to train station. Surrounded by good restaurants. Mini-mart and fruit stores steps away. Room small (expected this in Paris so no big deal) but clean and well equipped. Staff pleasant and very helpful. Street gets very lively at night but room was quiet.
South of the Latin Quarter, this residential and commercial district contains the evocative cafés and brasseries of the Lost Generation near Place Vavin and Montparnasse Cemetery. Attractions include the Catacombs, Parc Montsouris, the Cité Universitaire and a clutch of little art museums. The discount fashion stores of Rue d’Alésia and Vanves flea market attract bargain-hunters. There are good bus and train links to Orly Airport.
