The location was ideal for our purpose, however the hotel needs general renovation. The room was very small and the fridge in the room was filthy and had a gross smell. I did not work and the management did not change it when approached. I will pay a few more Euros and get a better hotel on my next visit to Paris.

Tight and dark lift/stairs. Very small room. Old and humidity smell. Though it was cheap, had own bathroom and nice buildings view. They can also keep your luggage if you leave later than check out.

The local area has a number of restaurants and cafes, not touristy and cheaper than central Paris. There is a metro line running under the hotel so there is a rumble every so often, this is loudest on the 1st floor. Overall, I was pleased with the location, price and breakfast.

One of the worst hotels I stayed at in Paris... You can find much better price-quality hotels in this big city.

Too expensive for the quality, no hot water in the bedroom, my place was noisy (neighbours were noisy, it was not the hotel's fault, i guess) and the staff on the phone for booking, almost displeasant

This was a small room with thin walls, at best I'd call it 'adequate'. But at worst, I'd also say it was adequate, and throw in a nice location, an excellent price, and a really great staff. . .I certainly wouldn't NOT recommend it.

A warning about not getting off at the Emile Zola Metro would have been helpful especially if you have a large suitcase and a recalcitrant child. The welcome was indiferrent at best, I was handed the keys and pointed to the lift. The lift was tiny. The room when I got to it was small. Having said this it was very clean. The bed was the worse I've ever slept in and despite asking could not get the mattress changed. The bathroom was compact but adequate and clean,however, the shower head kept moving during my showers and I had to hold it to get water on myself otherwise it would have meant running around the bathroom after the water! There was a TV in the room but only 1 English channel with the same focus each day. So glad that there was only 1 rainy day Reception did give me ideas on where to eat and I found a nearby Italian restaurant which was quite good. I bought some services via the hotel; metro pass (was overcharged for this and not refunded) We regularly used the internet and at 6 euros for our entire stay very economical. The hotel was well situated for the metro and Eiffel Tower. The breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful about facilites for children. However, I wouldn't stay there again despite the competive price (69 euros pernight) and cleaness I love my back too much.

This was our first time in Paris and our first stay at Idéal. We were not greeted warmly upon arrival and were made to wait at reception desk while the male receptionist went about his business on the computer. The room was VERY small and awkward to move around in. Bathroom was also VERY cramped. Hotel is too small and dark.

Although I had a short stay at the hotel, it was a pleasant surprise. The hotel has a good location and has good restaurants nearby. The room was small but clean and the bed was comfortable. Even the bathroom amenities was good with complimentary soap, shampoo and even lotion. The hallway and the elevator was too small, though, so it might be a problem if you have a big luggage. The breakfast was reasonable for 5euros. Overall, it was good value for my money.
