We chose this hotel purely for its location - 5 minutes from Breguet Sabin metro station, and 5 minutes from Place de Bastille with its many shops bars and restaurants. The hotel didn't disappoint! It's modern, clean and reasonably equipped for a budget hotel. The reception staff were all friendly and helpful and most spoke english. The rooms I would say are a fair size for this type of hotel. We have stayed in other budget hotels and this is the nicest one we've stayed at. We would definately return.
