The price, and the door was open all night.
We booked two single beds, but received a double. The hotel staff tried to claim I booked a double though.
The owner was very friendly. The building is pretty cool. The ascensor was working well. The room was warm and beautiful. And the bathroom was big enough. The hotel is sited in a very good place, next to everything. Nice neighbourghood. Very handy.
The room wasnt very clean, mainly the bathroom. There isn't telephone in the room to talk to the reception. Toilet paper ran off and they didnt replaced it imediatelly.
The room was reasonably decorated - nice hardwood floors and the bathroom was in good shape. Not the nicest neighborhood, but good location for tourists - easy walking distance from lively Bastille area with loads of restaurants, shops + nightlife. Reasonable hotel for budget conscious travellers who just want to rest somewhere at night and don't need anything fancy. Good access to Metro.
The building elevator was not working (for 4 days) and we were on the 5th floor - very strenuous to move the luggage up - staff did not help - and constantly go up and down the stairs! The stairwell and corridors were filthy!! The carpets hadn't been vacuumed in ages, and the lighting was very poor! The eating area was a little too cold and uninviting, and the breakfast was awful!! The coffee in particular - had to leave it standing.
The location was almost perfect, the cleanliness of the hotel, the staff were very helpfull :)
There´s no lift -but it´s only a (small) problem when you´r carrying your luggage.
It was a great value for the price, great location next to metro, friendly staff and very clean and comfortable rooms
