    « Small rooms »

    I stayed 2 nights in the hotel. My room was very small. Breakfast was ok, but not very luxury. The hotel was tidy and service friendly. The best thing in the hotel is the location in the side street. It makes the rooms very quiet.

    « Modern and Nice »

    Overall good impression. I stayed alone, so for me standard double room was fine ,but i think for couple it would be a small room. Otherwise, room is equipped well and modern. Location was good enough. Mainly, the price 100 eur for 4* hotel was really good. Receptionist - Christian, was very helpful ! Thank you :)

    « Out of the way, but a good place to stay »

    Right around the corner from the metro, tram, and bus stops, the location may seem a little far out from the attractions, but it's a pretty decent area, and excellent value. The evening receptionist was fantastic throughout the stay. The room we got was without a view, which makes no real difference when you have the whole city to see in the day, plus as much by night. Rooms are kept very well, with fresh towels daily if you wish. The air conditioning was blissful on one very hot week in Paris too. The shower comes with a small and a large head, and ranges from ice cold to scorchingly hot, suitable for everyone. One member of day staff let things down by being a little rude, but overall the experience had been one that was rather better than expected.

    « Nice!!! »

    I love the way the room was designed. It's small but very cute. Wash room located underground and service superb. Loved it! Located very close to train station and it's very convenient for traveling around Paris. Reception staff are very helpful and friendly.

    « Far Afield but Great AC for a Summer Visit »

    I stayed here for 5 or 6 days with my 17-year-old son in late June. I knew it would be hot in Paris and we were looking during the recent soccer competition so rooms were challenging to find. When a reservation elsewhere got fouled up, I booked this hoping that we'd at least have decent AC if we were going to be so far away from the main sites. We were not disappointed. The AC was the best I've ever encountered in Paris and it was hot and humid every day. The hotel is a short walk from a metro and a tram station which made getting to go where we wanted easy. The breakfast was very good, except the pain au chocolat were dry mini ones not worth trying. The fresh bread, still warm from the oven on days we ate early, made up for it. The room was small even by French standards but the beds were great and there was no noise so we both slept well. The area nearby has nothing of interest save for one striking cat sculpture. I dined by myself in the local area the last day after my son left for an exchange in the south of France. My choices were limited and unappealing. I would consider it again for a summer location since finding decent AC at an affordable hotel in Paris is impossible. I wouldn't recommend it to a first time visitor however since you would miss so much of the Parisian atmosphere so far away from the action. One way to save money here is to migrate away from their Web site after looking at it for a bit. When I did that it offered me a 5% discount and free breakfast. That is what tipped the cards in favor of this place.

    « Check the reservation carefully »

    I would rate at least an 8. Although the hotel is quite small, it is only 2 minutes away from the tram and metro. It is also very comfortable with a modern bathroom. I was also able to print out important documents 24/7 in the hotel. However there's one thing I didn't like. I booked my stay from for a one person room but on the day I arrived I upgraded my room due to my sister coming along last minute. On the third day of my stay, my sister fell asleep and didn't open the door for me so I went to the reception to get help. I told the receptionist that I couldn't get into my room and he asked about my room number, checked my reservation papers, and said that he couldn't open the door because it's a room for one person and that my sister had already taken the card with her. I explained to him about the upgrade but he wouldn't believe me so he checked my papers again and apologized that he didn't read it carefully. I hope next time the receptionist would check my updated reservation carefully and correctly. Also, I'd like to point out that some parts of the carpet are obviously dirty so it would be nice to have it cleaned for the next guest.

    « Small Hotel Outside Paris »

    The hotel is comfortable. Area is quiet. Service at the front desk is very good. Room AC in the room is cold enough for summer weather. The Hotel is open 24 hours, it is convenient when one comes back late hours. The Hotel is safe. The bathroom is a bit small. The room is cleaned every day. The only thing is coffee/tea/sugar/creamer are not always filled everyday, which the room cleaners supposed to do. Otherwise, every thing is fine.

    « Very satisfied customer »

    We had no idea what the Hotel or location would be like. It turned out to be in a very convenient, quiet location close to the Metro and therefore central Paris. The room was comfortable' clean and was serviced daily during our 4-day stay. We had a TV problem which was fixed immediately and the staff were very polite. The atmosphere in Paris was tense at the time due to the recent terrorist attacks so we felt safer here. We would definitely stay here next time we visit.

    « Quiet nice hotel in Paris »

    Every time we spent a weekend in Paris we stay here. Easy to access with the subway as well as the rest of the capital. Friendly staff, clean, modern with AC. Rooms are small but well designed. I particulary like all the pictures coming from old french movies with Belmondo and co.

    « Strictly B&B »

    The hotel is placed and a very friendly neighbor hood which is within a walking proximity to all public transportation, a trip to the city center is about 20 mins and the line that connects is very frequented with regular underground metros. There is a nice market just outside with ATM's, restaurants and pharmacies. Check in's: It was quite a cumbersome,since the person at the desk was finding it difficult to handle the 3 rooms check-in's. The process almost took us good 30 mins. The Hotel is very very small, and the elevator is an example which cannot take more than 2 adults and if you are a tourist with bags, then you need more than 2-3 trips to get your luggage to the room. The corridor to the rooms is also very narrow and so narrow that two adults will not be able to pass without bumping on to each other. Room: The room is a nest, practically you get all the boxes ticked for being present, however there its is so very small that you cannot move without hitting each other. the bathrooms were no different story. Good place if you are small stature individual, the housekeeping was good and the linen and towels were good. Did not spend too much time in the room to switch on the TV so would not know if there were any English channels. The Breakfast was ok nothing great to speak about, not what you expect in other chains. Just basic and yes they do take a signature once you arrive at the petite dining place. This place is ideal if you are travelling light are only bothered with a neat place to sleep over. Since i was travelling single however on a long business tour had more luggage and which was not ideal choice however there is no other complaints.

    « Worst Best Western Premier »

    The rooms were very small. I mean small. You cannot move without touching or hitting each other. The bathrooms were dirty. House Keeping did replenish the coffee. We were here for 5 nights and we had to go to the front desk to get coffee for the next day. There was no hot water one day and we had to go out without taking a shower. There was no service at all. During check out I was loading up the taxi before going to the FD to settle the bill which was $19 Euro for city tax . But the FD Clerk came out to the taxi and asked for the money. I said that I will be there then she went back. Very bad service.

    « Your own concierge service »

    As frequent travellers who select Best Western as our first choice, we were not disappointed with this selection. The room was very small, but clean and neat. We were a block from the Metro and Cours de Vincennes, which featured all kinds of eating places along its length. The best part of the visit was the front desk staff, who went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and who provided unlimited advice, from a good place to eat our first night there to how to use the Metro. Their command of English was wonderful.

    « Nice little hotel »

    Clean hotel with small rooms in a nice neighbourhood. Near the perifirique, with nice market on the Montreuil/Vincennes side. Hotel staff was friendly and gave restaurant suggestion. Breakfast was limited, but good enough for the business traveller.

    « Very compact, but also very friendly and comfortable »

    I have stayed here at least four times recently and it is a good and comfortable place, very clean indeed and also well maintained. The beds are good, the layout is efficient, the water is hot and the soap provided smells very nice indeed! Friendly multilingual staff at the desk. It is true that the rooms are very small, but I have stayed in other similar hotels in Paris and if they are in the older buildings then they will all be of a simlar size unless you wish to pay some astronomical rates. I could get more space, but beyond walking distance to work, and not such good quality. Breakfast is nice, with a good variety squeezed into a small space, everything nice and fresh. It would be good to get a bigger coffee machine that doesn't get filled up with grounds (vidange) quite so quickly but the breakfast lady will sort it out no problem. The price tends to be a bit variable. I have had good deals here but sometimes we have paid too much, so check.

    « Only descent »

    The hotel is renovated. Has extreemly small size corridors and rooms. Breakfast is 14 eur and not worth it at all. The staff is annoying and insisted that i should return the room key (electronic card) at the reception everytime i had to leave the hotel. These guys r still living in the last century!

    « America »

    Specialty Hotel and a private breakfast very delicious thank you and thank the staff this quiet hotel and I love to come from America to try this hotel because my friends advised me to go to him so much I love you all mandate beautiful family

    « A good hotel for business travelers »

    This hotel is about 5.5 Kms from Paris East station. Check in was super efficient, the guy at the reception in the evening was very nice and helpful. This is a neat and refurbished property near a metro station (2-3 minutes walk) but since the hotel is not directly on the main road, it saves you from the noise. Rooms are well appointed though a bit cramped. Toilet very clean with some toiletries, soap dispensers and two types of good quality showers. Eiffel tower is about 35 minutes by Metro (one change at Nation stop), super markets, mini markets, restaurants, laundry, fruit and vegetable shops are at a walking distance. Overall hotel is decent and importantly clean and does not stink like many other hotels in Paris. Internet speed with Wifi connection was very good. You have two options at the breakfast - full breakfast (sausages, eggs, ham, cheese, bread, baguette, tea, coffee, juice, yoghurt, muesli, etc) and express breakfast (croissant, juice, tea/coffee). The breakfast room and tables are bit cramped for the space. I had a full breakfast and it was reasonable. However, I felt that the breakfast is on expensive side (14 Euros for full breakfast and 6 Euros for Express breakfast) when you consider value for money factor. Nonetheless, everything went well and I was happy about the choice I made for a night.

    « A GEM!!! »

    My fiancee and I stayed at this hotel for one week in June 2015, and we were so happy to be there! The hotel is very charming, and the decor is vintage 60's with a modern twist. The service is also excellent, and the staff were very friendly and helpful! We also had breakfast there, and the variety of food, cheese, baked goods, etc, was great and authentically French. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel, and when you book it, do get it with the breakfast. The neighbourhood is also lovely, as it is very residential, and the Sorbonne is close by too.

    « A Convenient, Quiet Hotel »

    We came to this hotel almost by accident. it is just around the corner from the Porte de Vincennes metro station and convenient to everything. It is in a sort of lower middle class area with lots of ethnic minorities and not a lot of acceptable restaurants. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, recently renovated and well-equipped. Breakfast was quite good, if a little on the expensive side. The daytime staff has very limited English, but you're in France after all. The night guy was English. Nice TV, good functional bathroom. Room a bit small but Ok for two.

    « Best affordable hotel »

    Everywhere there is Best western my first hotel choice will be so friends and family just find the closet to you and wet for me and my family at the checking you went miss me. Most of the time they are placed not far from freeway and air port which is easy to get in and out to your commute.

    « narrow comfortable hotel near city center »

    The crew on the reception are super friendly but the room cleaning stab was not reliable >>>they forgot to close the door after cleaning the room.<<<<<< the bath room equipment is excellent, the carpet in the room need to be cleaned extensively. location of the hotel is next to the metro station , neverhteless one can sleep quietly in the room.

    « Excellent value for money »

    We arrived at the hotel at 8am and was given a room with no extra charges which was brilliant, The staff were helpful and the room were not that big however perfect for a nights sleep. The hotel was clean and the location was good.

    « Family break »

    Went to check in traveled 8hours with family very bad attitude problem wanted me to pay and refused to show room first to anyone big no very bad customer service spoil start of my break went round looking for other hotel finally after 3 hours found Hyatt in Paris who had availability for family

    « Could be better... »

    We stayed here for four nights for our anniversary. Our room was really small but we didn't mind, it was clean, the aircon worked well, the bathroom was ok and clean for the most part and the bed was comfortable until my boyfriend woke up one morning full of bed bug bites all over his body. We informed the man at the front desk and he was very apologetic about it, we didn't expect it to happen at a four star hotel... All the men at the front desk were very nice and friendly, but the young lady gave us wrong directions and information on the airport shuttle. It was no big deal but we could have avoided spending 50 euro on a taxi. The location was fairly good, it did take a lot to get there though from the airport. A little distant from the city center too but metro is just around the corner so it's ok. All in all, I think we liked the hotel minus the bed bugs.

    « Very good value »

    Breakfast should be included with booking fee. This will really help guest and attract more people especially from North America. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and very good value for advance booking fee.

    « disappointed »

    not at all what i expected based on information on info on website. this is not a four star hotel. small breakfast room, no other meals, no bar, small room, smaller bathroom. not a very good neighbourhood.

    « Great location »

    The hotel has a great location. Really close to everything. The room was really small for us but I guess that's what you get in Paris. We were in the fifth floor and it was really noisy with the people on the sides and upstairs. Even though we asked not to have room service at all and left the sign on the door, we found out that the cleaner went inside and made our bed. We complained about it but nobody said or did anything about it. We would recommend this hotel if you want to be in Paris close the main amenities.

    « Access to City centre »

    The hotel is very close to a train station Port Vicence. There is also tram station at this location. Thus access to cheap transport means is easy. Generally, the hotel was nice. Though the room was very small, but functional.

    « Birthday gift »

    The hotel is easy to get to with the metro just minutes away. The yellow #1 metro gets you to most of the major areas of Paris. The Hotel is quiet and well maintained. The elevator is a little small. Overall great experience.

    « Best Western Premier 61 Paris Nation »

    It is a very good hotel with modern rooms and above all a very good bedding. Bathroom very small but clean and well equipped. Breakfast is just ok and not very sophisticated for a 4* hotel ; waiter has a lack of standing
