We stayed here for 7 nights at the beginning of April 2012. The hotel is comfortable, clean and a good base for visiting the city. Staff are very friendly and most can speak English, Breakfast is a buffet comprising cereal, fruit, toast, pastries, ham and cheese. The coffee is fabulous. There is no bar or restaurant. Ok, rooms are small, but not as tiny as I had been led to believe by the other reviews. Our room was big enough, clean, everything worked and we slept really well in a comfortable bed. The district isn't central, but it's a nice "real Paris" area, and there's a Metro almost next to the hotel. Once we understood the way the Metro works, it was easy to get to everywhere from Daumesnil, and not expensive if you get a 5-day ticket for central Paris. It takes about 20 minutes to get from here to all the central big tourist spots. This is definitely not a rough area, and anyone who thinks it is should visit Montmartre or some of the more western districts. We came across homeless people and beggars and con-artists everywhere in Paris, most noticeably around the major tourist sites. For the cost, this hotel is absolutely exceptional value.
