Very small but conveniently located.

The Comfort Hotel Lamarck is located in Paris's 18th District. The closest metro station is Lamarck / Caulaincourt which is a just few minutes walk away.
We were checked into room number 1 which is outside the main building. The room itself was small, not very clean and had, what I can only describe as, the smallest bathroom I've ever encountered.
The room is parallel with Rue Duhesme and as it is slightly lower than street level, you are constantly disturbed by passing pedestrians and cars.
There was also a constant 'scratching' noise which seemed to be coming from the wall, almost as if a rat or mouse was trying to gnaw it's way through. The bathroom sink was leaking from the waste pipe and the shower pipe was split causing loss of pressure and water to spray out. We reported all issues to reception who said they would make a note of the issues and report them to maintenance. Make of that what you will.
We had the chance to book a 4 star hotel, which was slightly further from where we wanted, for only £8 more. We won't make the same mistake twice; next time we'll book a better hotel and forsake convenience.
