The hotel is in need of moderation - indeed work has started, which caused a little disturbance. For a superior double room, it was very small and bathroom was cramped; when you opened the bathroom door, it hit the toilet, and there were signs of damage. Breakfast was disappointing - no baguettes! Hot drinks were from machines, so rarely hot, and there was little fresh fruit. TV in the bedroom was not easy to operate, and limited channels.
No frills, comfortable beds and right by the Jaures metro station . The rooms are small, the bathrooms are even smaller, and the breakfast buffet is not great for 12 euros but this is a good place if you are not big built and want a safe and comfortable nights rest.
Nice budget hotel. The area is still considered "up and coming," which is probably why it's so inexpensive. But the hotel is literally right around the corner from the metro, so it shouldn't matter. This is a good place to use as a base to see Paris for a few days without taking out a second mortgage.
