    • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The location was great. The area was nice; plenty of shops and cafes. The staff seemed okay, but my room was full of mosquitoes and ants. In the morning I had been bitten by the mosquitoes and had big red lumps of my nody for the rest of my holiday. I accept you can not stop a mosquito flying into your bedroom, but I killed about six of them on the day I arrived, and another 3 the next morning. Why were there so many at the end of October in Paris? Why was there an ants nest in the wall?

      A great budget hotel situated right next to Gare du Lyon which was perfectly situated for our onward trian journey to Marseille. The room was clean and well appointed for the price and we were entirely satisfied. The staff were friendly and helpful, and there were plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants nearby to enjoy.
