Our experience at Hotel Donjon was wonderful! The front desk was like having a personal English speaking tr avel agent with infinite friendliness and patience. The rooms were perfectly clean. The neighborhood is great -- not in the hectic tourist areas, but friendly and quiet where the locals are walking their children from school and where there are plenty of food stores, cafe's and restaurants. It's a short walk (3 min) to the Metro, or a magnificent castle (4 min), or a quaint, pretty and large shopping area (5 min) that my daughter and I far preferred to the Champs Elysees, or a nice park (8 min) with some forest trails. I won't forget listening to two sax players in that park who were just standing under a tree and playing great jazz for no one but themselves (and me.) My 11-year old daughter and I liked it so much we added another (4th) night to our stay. From the hotel you can walk for an hour to the center of Paris or be there in 15 min by Metro. Touristing in Paris is exhausting -- this hotel provides rest, refuge, and nice alternatives!
One should know that for such a reasonable price you have to accept the fact that the rooms are fairly small, esp the bathrooms. The showers are pretty cramped (though the water pressure for hot and cold was just fine.)
