Well placed for the Metro and next to a large shopping centre. The single room was very small and sparse, almost like a prison cell, and the tiny bed was a little too small for me. But it was fairly clean and an OK place to spend a night or two, although I wouldn't want to stay there for an extended period. Right next to a busy flyover although the noise wasn't obtrusive. TV had no English-language channel. Breakfast was continental-style and quite adequate.
A visit to Paris is not about a hotel. But when a hotel is situated close to a fully functioning METRO, is clean, well lighted, with civilized staff--it facilitates enjoying everything the great city offers.
The Hotel is 50 yards from the De Gaulle exit of St Mande Metro which is 2 stops from the Eastern end of the Yellow Line 1 Metro which connects to Chatelet Les Halles. A Metro ticket to Paris is just Eu1.80 so it's very convenient.
Tip: In Paris top up at the water fountain at Hotel de Ville!
If you come from Disneyland Eurostar or TGV at Marne la Vallee station, the RER train takes you to Nation station. Change there to Metro 1. Two stops back & you're here (Eu7.80).
If you come by road the hotel is just off the Peripherique. Parking outside: Eu5.20 for 4 hours.
You'll see a boulangerie nearby and a small supermarket (Franprix) along the road, past the Metro exits, where you can buy stuff for your sandwiches. You don't want to buy too many meals out. The hotel's restaurant is however good value & busy. We had the Eu22 3-course menu and were well pleased.
The restaurant shuts at the weekend, but the Chinese on the same block is good value (and a beer there is just Eu2.5). We also saw a creperie along the main road opposite Franprix.
Make sure you book thro a site like Expedia because the normal hotel tariff is higher. Breakfast is Eu8 extra. You won't find a kettle in your room, and we did not ask for one. Shower was good & powerful with everything clean & tidy. You can ask for a UK power adaptor if you forgot to buy one to charge your mobile.
On Friday & Sunday there is a market right outside the hotel for all your fruit and salads & even hot snacks.
Book and enjoy!
Excellent location in front of Metro and with lots of shops/cafes nearby. Street noise not the problem feared. Furnishing minimal. Tiny elevator and a few stairs, but at least it HAS an elevator. Very helpful staff. Not cheap for what it is but no cheap hotels in Paris.

I had a good experience in this hotel, it is very close to tube station and the hotel staff are always ready to help you. It is one more or less half an hour of the main tourist points. The only problem is that they don`t have breakfast. it would be very good.
