I booked a single room in this 2 star hotel through the German Railway travel agency Ameropa for 4 nights in September 2011. I paid Euro 72.00 per night including breakfast.

I got a tiny smelly room in the front of the building facing the road. The traffic itself is not really noisy but if people are yelling around on the street at night times it can be noisy. Due to the smell I wasn't able to sleep with the window closed and therefore needed earplugs and then the mosquitos found their way in too.

I saw a friend's room in the back building which was definitely better. The photos on their website only show their spacious rooms.

Breakfast was continental and you are ordered to sit down and then they bring you a tray with either tea/coffee or hot chocolate (your choice) a croissant and a piece of Baguette, butter and jam. You can help yourself to orange juice and if there is any left, salami,joghurt and boiled eggs. If you don't come early you will never know about the salami and the joghurt. So if you are later, just ask for the joghurt.

All the staff was very friendly.

The hotel is situated very close to the Gare de l'Est and a few minutes walk further from the Gare du Nord which is excellent. But the area is full of homeless and other unhappy people. So if this is a problem for you, then choose another arrondisment.

The TV only had French speaking channels and was difficult to actually make working. Wifi costs 5 Euro for your stay but only works in the common room. Just a few doors from the hotel there is a cheap internet café.

My bathroom was only suitable for slim persons as it was tiny. Everything was clean enough. The only bother was the smell. It would probably help if there wasn't any carpet in the room.
I was quite shocked at the notice in the room that eating in the room was forbidden and that extra cleaning would be charged extra. This is the first hotel I saw in the entire world where eating is forbidden. I think that they should write this on their website so that one is informed about this beforehand especially since opposite the hotel there is a market hall.

Please note that in the front building there is a small elevator but it stops between the floors.
