Good but inconvenient area
Posted Aug 25, 2015 on Hotels
This is a nice little hotel. It has pluses and minuses. On the plus side, 24 hour reception, elevator, high end linens, coffee machine in room, remodeled bathroom, and a breakfast that serves eggs and sausage (for 9.80 eu extra per person).
On the minus side, the neighbor is sort of the middle of nowhere for Paris. There is no restaurant or boulangerie (bakery) or coffee shop within short walking distance. There is sort of "nothing" there at all. (We could have got a room in Montmartre for 2/3 the price close to all kinds of things.) It turns out that if you walk a few blocks one way, and then turn and walk two blocks another way, there is a Starbucks. You will need a map and/or GPS to find the place on the backside of Paris. Although they offered parking, it was all taken (as usual), and we had to park about 3 blocks down on the street. The room itself is tiny (two people can not walk around the bed at the same time) which is not unusual for France. Also the staff, both the check in guy, and the check out guy, were not rude, but neither one very friendly.
Nothing bad about this place, but nothing really wonderful that distinguished it from other hotels in Paris. We were able to get a special last minute price that brought the price down to be more competitive, and so we are ok with it. But at full price (which is about double Montmatre), it would not be a good deal at all.
