Great location from which to explore Paris. The rooms were small although ony used for sleeping so not too much of an issue. They were clean and maid service was provided daily. We ate breakfast at local cafe's so unable to comment on the hotel breakfast.
We had booked interconnecting rooms but found they were located next to one another and did not actually connect to one another. We would recommend the hotel and stay again.

Great location, helpful staff! The continental breakfast is a little steep, but the "superior room" lived up to its name and was very nice to find such a hotel in Paris.

Room Tip: Try to get the superior room, it's a little bit more expensive but it's is worth!

The Hotel Villathena was a pleasant little hotel with comfortable conditions and breakfast provided. I was in a classic room for this stay.

PROS

- comfortable bed
- continental breakfast provided from 7:00am to 10:00am. If asked they will provide cooked sausages and scrambled egg as well
- hot, strong shower
- adequate storage space for one person with in-room safe
- room service meals available
- close to Gare St Lazare with Metro, RER and rail lines
- nearby eateries, cafes, pubs, restaurants, pharmacy, grocery store, bank (ATM) and laundromats
- widescreen TV with some English channels
- friendly staff
- Close to Galeries Lafayette (for the shoppers)
- very quiet due to double-glazed windows
- fast free wifi. I recorded an average download speed of 6.9MB/s and upload speed of 0.4MB/s

CONS

- Gare St Lazare has many connections. You will often find that you have to walk a long way to get to your platforms
- There are beggars at the station who will try to sell you used Metro tickets. Be careful of pick-pockets. They are everywhere in Paris (not just here) and very skilful.
- room was quite small. Shower recess was less than 1 square metrer in area
- you might feel a little self-conscious on the ground floor as you are at street level with people walking past your window. There are blinds of course. I found it difficult to see in when I tried looking in to my room from the street however.

I would certainly consider staying here again.

TIP If you go to the Metro level of Gare St Lazare you will find a Carrefours grocery store which will have meals and all grocery items, such as sandwiches, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, chips, chocolates, milk etc.

Room Tip: Would ask for something not on the ground floor due to passing pedestrian traffic.
