Someone here mentioned that a woman travelling alone shouldn't even consider this hotel, but I think the hotel is ok if you just don't mind the rooms. The staff was very helpful and nice and they spoke all spoke proper English (which was important to me since I can't speak French). The lounge was nice and cozy, but when I got to the room... It really was like a prison. The room was tiny, the bathroon even smaller and there was mold and water damage in the walls above the shower and it smelled really bad. The bed was uncomfortable and the lack of a nightstand bothered me. The walls were paper thin and I could clearly hear what the German family staying at the room above me were talking about. The only nice things about the room were the tv (big and new, but of the about 35 channels one was in German and other, Eurosport in English. I'm not really into sports so I watched the German channel if I opened the tv at all) and the view. I quite liked the garden so it was nice to have a window on that wall and not facing the street.
I didn't eat any breakfast there because I thought ten euros a day for a croissant and tea was more than I was ready to pay. So I usually had breakfast just before noon because the subway ride was so long and I didn't want to be in the way of commuters (so I didn't leave the room at 8 or 9 in the morning) But really, if you want to be at the sights just after they open and before the ques, you really do have to get up early because no matter where you go, the subway takes at least 20 minutes. And if you plan to go to Disneyland, choose another hotel. This one's too far.
The services near the hotel: the subway stop isn't too far and there's a drug store and a small grocery store just along the road. If you don't care for French food, there's a Chinese restaurant, McDonald's and a Subway a small walk away (but you don't have anywhere to store the food in the hotel room, though)
The hotel was ok, but I'm not going to stay there again. The prison-like rooms and the location weren't for me.
