It was awful and dirty. The lady in the mornings was clean and efficient. The man afternoons and evenings was dirty and totally unhelpful. Indescriptible. Nasty meal in supposedly Italian restaurant with Egyptian owner and cook from Bangladesh! (I speak French, but no help here)

Fantastic location for an overnight stay...location to shops, Metro and other train services are very convenient. Hotel room less desirable, noise from corridors can be heard from room when other guests return late to their rooms. Hosts are friendly but do not extend their hospitality to make suggestions or make your stay more comfortable. In the end, great location was a trade off for room size and value.

Small and not expensive hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Quiet location, close to the metro. We had problems with payment by credit card (this was the only place for one week tour over Europe).

Even I have been stayed in many Hotels with 5* all over the world, I hardly believe that this hotel is a real value of money for a Paris traveller that wants only a quiet place to sleep and to rest. The breakfast was very poor for my standards, but I enjoyed the croissants. It is near to Metro station, so you can easily reach any place in Paris. Moreover, there are some restaurants and pizzerias around and the "boulangerie" 30 m from there provides excellent and cheap solutions of quick snacks. The staff of hotel was very kind and helpful to us in every question. I will stay again there!!

Hotel mediocre, stanze piccole, buona posizione a 300 mt la metro di Volontaires (linea 12), adatto per trascorrere pochi giorni. Allo stesso prezzo esistono molti altri hotel migliori secondo me. Rasenta la sufficienza.

It's only a room to rest and sleep. It's quiet at nights. The bathroom was OK. The breakfast was to sweet. I like very much the neighbourhood. The hotel is good for small budget travellers. I can recomended a restaurant in the neighbourhood Le Roi du Café. Bye for now Ferran

I've been to Paris several times for work. But this time I've been there for leisure with my family (wife + two children). The hotel offered two communicating rooms. Quite clean and large enough (with respect to the standard in Paris). The bathroom was small for both rooms. Only one problem: non lift. We had to carry our luggage up to the third floor !! Breakfast was included. Very simple (croissant, milk, coffee and ... Nutella for my kids). The cutlery were not very clean. If you speak French it's better. Really close to a Metro station. The area aroun the hotel looked quite.

This is a nice hotel not in the best location for sightseeing, but the quality for price was good. The desk staff is very helpful and we took advantage of a van to the airport that they offered at a discounted rate. Breakfast was included but only offered coffee and croissants, but is was free. I might stay here again if the price is right, but it is really to far away from most of the main attractions except for the Eiffel Tower. They also do not have A/C in the rooms.

Four of us stayed in two rooms that had an outer door to close. One room had toilet, sink and shower the other had just sink and bidet. The shower really needs a new shower head as most of the water ran down the hose instead of out the head. The bedspreads were pretty dirty, but the sheets were clean. Just enough space to set suitcases on the floor by beds. No lift, but only two floors. Near to metro stops. We didn't explore the area near the hotel very much, only there for two nights so we were busy out seeing sights all day long. Basic breakfast of croissant and small baguette, with juice and coffee or chocolate. If you need a room for four together it was a good place. My son speaks French, but I think Marie does fairly well with English if she is at the reception.

If you need a cheap hotel, no lujury, Cactus it´s OK, about 30 min walking from Eiffel Tower and one block from a subway station. Quit location, but don´t expect a great breakfast.

While the employee was very helpful, as our reservation did not show up on his computer, the room itself was pretty sad, very small, very thin walls, and not very tidy. Fairly convenient to Montparnass, and very close to a Metro stop

Zentral gelegenes Hotel - sehr gut für Besichtigungen. Da in einer Seitenstraße gelegen, war das Zimmer überraschend ruhig. Nähe Metro-Station!Einziges Manko war die reine Selbstbedienung in einer Miniküche für ein sparsames, aber ausreichendes Frühstück (typisch französisch eben) wo sich die Gäste gegenseitig auf die Füße treten. Wir werden das Hotel bei unserem nächsten Paris-Trip sicherlich wieder buchen.
