The hotel is locate in the heart of Paris. In the middle of everything we need in Paris - cafes, restaurants, bars, markets, and above all - nice people! Thanks for all!

Hotel is in bad shape
The room and bathroom smelled bad, the tv didn’t work, the WiFi was super slow, there was no elevator to the first floor and the room was cramped. It’s a cheap option in Saint Germain but it’s not worth it.

Value stay
Hotel is fine, no frills, clean place and friendly staff. Bed was not the most comfortable and shower pressure was weak, other than that, definitely a good value for the price and good location very close to the 10 line on metro and close to river.

Nothing great
The staff wasn’t the most helpful and the room was just ok, there was no air conditioner so it was quite hot but the location was great, near a train station and several monuments

This is our second stay here and it was better than the last. First, the location is wonderful. We stayed on the fifth floor and the view was amazing. The staff is friendly. If you're on a budget, this is a great place to stay.

Amazing Location
This hotel was pretty darn good. The location was central to almost everything and the staff was extremely friendly. Though we did not partake, breakfast was reasonable and we heard good things from other guests.
