About 2 minutes walk from Gare du Est and the same distance to Place de la Republique we found the hotel to be a perfect 2-night stop. Staff are attentive and for those of us who find French a challenge they do not mind English. We always find it strange in France that a country which has a huge influx of English speaking tourists their hotels almost entirely restrict English language tv to the BBC world news. Okay, who wants tv in Paris? Having spent a couple of days seeing 'everything' one night would have been pleasant. Nevertheless, a good choice and if you are fit and active 'everything' is within walking distance. Even the Eiffel Tower was only an hour stroll away. Breakfast was basic but wholesome and good value, for Paris, at 9 Euro. We didn't find the rooms as small as some people appear to be suggesting - perhaps they are bigger on the 6th floor? One romantic observation was the realisation we could see the top of the Eiffel Tower from our room. Boulevard Magenta is a very busy road day and night so if you are sensitive to traffic noise look elsewhere or ask for a room on the top floors. Could have been exhaustion, trying to cram so much in to 2-nights, but we were not really troubled by it.
