Ok so this is a pretty cool hotel, the decor is very out there. The rooms are small but attractive which is fine if you are on your own but might be a tad annoying with two of you. What I didn't like was the wifi was awful which given I was there on business was really annoying. There is... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week - very clean and modern and a little bit quirky. The location was perfect with a 6 minute walk to the nearest metro and surrounded by lovely restaurants and bars. The room was perfect size for the two of us, and the bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning was a huge plus..... More

Everything was amazing about this hotel, from location, staff, cleanliness to wifi speed. Only concern is if you're a big person, won't be able to use the bathroom. OK for small or average people though.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. Before arriving in Paris, I had heard how small the rooms were in all the hotels due to the nature of the buildings. However, I was more than pleased with this hotel room. Yes the room was small, but it was perfect for our stay. We had a queen sized double bed, excellent shower, and... More

What it has...is a great location within 15 minute walk you can be in the Pompidou and the Louvre museums. Restaurants nearby within walking distance.

Hotel is close to Louve and some excellent restaurants. The room was small but was very clean, quite, comfy bed with an excellent shower (bit confronting see-through shower next to bed). Internet is free and reliable; breakfast is a bit pricey for just a continental type breakfast, staff spoke English and were very helpful.
