The location was as central and handy as everyone says in their reviews. The price was a bit steep for a 2 star, I believe. The rooms were rather dingy, however I noticed that there has been some attempt at sprucing up the decor. We were glad to get out and about from about 8am to 8pm each day, with a nap in between when we could. From our perspective, it was well worth saving our money for transport and food costs. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke understandable English, except for the breakfast and cleaning staff. I did not encounter any rudeness- something one traveller reported. We were there for 4 nights. The free internet use was handy- it's only to quickly check your emails and respond within about 10 minutes. The breakfast was typical- we really enjoyed the coffee! The things that might bother you at this hotel is the smoking (typical everywhere in Europe!) and the noises outside if you need to have the windows open at night in summer. If I went to Paris again, I'd try to get a better deal at a 4-5 star hotel closer to the city. After spending a month in Europe, I think it is sometimes worth spending a little bit more, particularly when you get better facilities, such as pool, breakfast, airconditioning and nicer rooms. If you want to save every penny, don't mind the smell of smoke nor roughing it, then this is the place for you!

Nice clean hotel, close to public transport. None of the staff could speak english so that was a bit of a drawback as we could not ask them for help or directions. Also the rooms and bathrooms are tiny.

This facility had all of the amenitites....breakfast available, elevator,bakery around the block, internet cafe half block away,and a nice cultural climate with a superb staff.
The hotel was clean, neat and well placed in Republic. It had a Metro station very close by, and marvelous restaurants. We stayed for over two weeks there in July of 2005, and enjoyed ourself tremendously. The price was great, the service was excellent, the hotel was perfect to our needs.

This hotel is a veritable jewel in the crown and the lady owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room we had was clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for our needs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paris and would certainly stay there on future visits. The hotel is located 100m from the métro at Place de la République and is within easy reach of the city centre and all the attractions. Definintely worth a visit!

Top Local Tips for Paris

Chez Imogene Finding somewhere decent to eat is always a bit harder when you're a vegetarian who likes good food - this is a great creperie near Place de la Republique - lovely food, friendly service and cheap!

party wax nightclub by the Bastille was cool!

Eating out We discovered that some places offer a "Formula" or set menu, which worked out cheaper than having things separately. I guess you would have to check the menu to see what each one is offering but they are well worth keeping an eye out for
