I did not expect much before arriving, but this was the worst hotel I have ever seen. Very dirty, stinky, smelly, with bad bugs as an "extra". I had some terrible bites during the last night. TV did not work at all and the tower-rail was broken. Noisy, but if you stay in an area with very lively night life, this is normal. Try to avoid this hotel, but not the area - that was nice with very good public transportation. Several museums, interest of tourists, nice bars, restaurants in a stone throw.

The location is great, very close to Bastille Metro. The staff was friendly despite their English being very limited. The room was fine, very sparsome, but that's what you can expect for 70EUR for an ensuite double room. Unfortunately I would not go back to this hotel again, since the mattress was infected with bedbugs. The first two nights we thought it was just mosquito bites, but it definitely wasnt. I've read this complaint in previously reviews, but they have not fixed it - what a shame !
