Hotel staff's friendliness Location

Too small room, not enough space to move around the bed Room is way too warm. No way to lower temperature, except by opening the window but then becomes noisy. Breakfast: hot water for tea was almost cold

Good value, small, simple, good for a 1 or 2 night business trip. Felt safe in the area, metro near by

If you want to impress your partner look somewhere else

Very friendly person on the front desk. Very quite hotel given the central Paris location. Very convenient for Gare de Lyon station if you are catching an early morning train. 5 mins walk.

Room fairly basic, but fine if you are there to enjoy Paris rather than spend a lot of time in your hotel room.
