This hotel is an excellent budget stay in a fantastic Paris neighbourhood, close to Metro lines, parks, and restaurants. I stayed at the end of September, 2022, and all three staff with whom I interacted were helpful and friendly. Despite what I read in other reviews, there was no smell of cigarette or cannabis smoke. My room on the fourth floor facing the courtyard was clean and quiet.
This is a very old building, and if you're expecting the New York Hilton, you're in for a disappointment. Some reviewers complained that the TV was small. If you came to Paris to sit in your hotel room and watch TV, I have a hot travel tip for you: Stay home. I'm sure your TV there is the perfect size for you. Yes, there was only one power point in the room, inconveniently located on the wall near the bathroom door, and unless your charging cable is a lot longer than mine, you can't charge your phone bedside. That wasn't a deal breaker for me. The wifi worked well. The blankets are old, the towels are small and rough like mine are when I hang them outside to dry, but they were clean and there was plenty of hot water. If I want huge bath towels, I'll pony up the cash for a different sort of hotel. This one was perfect for my needs.
I would stay here again any time I'm in Paris.
