1.01km from l'Est ParisienMy husband and I stayed 7 nights here. The first night was in an standard room (#304). It was nice and clean but very small (yes, I know many hotel rooms are small in Paris). Window to the quite dull backyard. The big downside was that about 60-70cm from the bed's foot end, was the shower and toilet. Only separated with a shower curtain. No door! They had taken away all previous glass doors due to risk of accidents. Me and my husband of course know each other very well, but without any privacy in the toilet - and all "sounds" from there right by the bed, it's far from ideal. At least for us. (We had actually ordered a superior room from the booking site, but there had been an unrepairable mistake. That's why we got the standard room ... Anyway, the supernice staff made it possible to upgrade to a superior room the next day. That made all the difference in the world! Thank you for making this possible! Room 202, was just lovely. A big larger, a solid door to the bathroom (bathtub and toilet) and streetview. There's a waterkettle and mugs in each room but no tea nor coffee. Windows are well sound isolated if you keep them shut, of course. We chose to have our window open during all night. After a night or two we were not at all disturbed by the metro (not beeing underground at the Jaurés station nereby) nor the traffic and typical citynoice. Inner walls ar not as sound isolated though. There is a very small elevator in the building. It starts at the second floor to which there are 20 steps. That's where the reception is too. The staff was very kind and carried our suitcases up the stairs from/to the street. Avenue Sécretan is a lively street with "everything" you need very close and a fresh baguette is just across the hotel entrance. Location is perfect with different metro lines, the nice canal, shops, cafés and restaurants close by. Sunday is market day on the hotel street, starting quite early. This is a hotel we definitely will return to, making sure to book a superior room!
