I haven't actually stayed here but it's right across the street from where I live and I can see it from my window. I'm posting this tip because I've read some negative reviews about the neighborhood (on tripadvisor) which I think you can safely ignore. The area is transitioning; canal Saint Martin is getting ever trendier, there is a big new cinema complex etc. so I've posted some photos of it and the bassin de la Villette for you to check out if you are worried. Of course you must be a young "party" type person to enjoy your stay here but all the same the neighborhood is not that bad. Even if you don't want to stay here I suggest you check out the website. It's excellent!

Unique Qualities: Convenient to metro. The Juares station right across the street on line 5 is direct to Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est. There is a little café downstairs. I stopped by and they seem friendly enough and said that yes I could visit a room (but only in the morning and I haven't yet had the time to go).
