The hotel was OK, the room was clean when I walked in, everything seemed fine. Then I started getting bites all over my arms and legs, although when checking the mattress it didn't look particularly worrisome... turns out they were hiding behind the headboard, which is the only unmovable furniture in the room (it is stuck to the wall, but...

no frills but clean, well positioned for transit travellers due to being so close to city centre, station, and bus station (including airport transfer) but maybe not so ideal for tourists staying longer because the 2nd arrondisement can be a bit dead especially at nights.

This hotel is not so far from railway station and we walked that only few minutes. This way was little bit troublesome. The road was dirty and full of rubbish, and the local inhabitants were looked dangerously. But with the hotel we were satisfied. It is only 2* hotel, but was clean with good services - tasty breakfast, pleasant receptionist.

This 2-star hotel was much nicer than two of the 3 star hotels we stayed at during this trip. Although small and the bed was small and hard, everything else met our needs.

But the personal was very nice and helped us with another room. But still hard to sleep after 08:00 because you can hear every door opening. I...

My friend and I stayed here as part of our travels around Europe and found it to be an adequate hotel for the price we paid for it and for the 2* rating it had. The location isn't perfect as you come to expect with 2* hotels in major cities - we were around a 20 minute walk from the...
