This was a clean hotel, with friendly staff, but the area was not the best in Paris. Our taxi driver warned us when dropping us off about pickpockets. We never had any issues, but there were constant police sirens all night. Situated in a central location very close to the Gare du Nord, bus and metro lines. Our bedroom was very clean and tidy, with two single beds and a sofa bed, so plenty of room for a family. I had a very good nights sleep. The bathroom had a deep bath and a lovely shower, hairdryer and shaver socket. There are late night supermarkets and reasonably priced restaurants in the locality. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget who wants to see Paris with easy access to public transport.
