Good basic hotel for exploring Paris
A good basic hotel - shown 4* but in reality a 2 or 3*. Clean and tidy and very friendly staff. Location is ideal being only a 15 minute walk from Montmartre. The area is not the best with lots of street sellers and some beggars, but did not feel unsafe. Metro only two minutes walk from the hotel.

A basic hotel close to the Sacre Coeur
A basic 2 / 3 star hotel about a 15 minute walk from the Sacre Coeur. TBH the area in which the hotel is situated is not the best and quite scruffy and dirty but I did not feel unsafe. The hotel is clean and tidy but places is showing signs of being in need of a a lick of paint or refurb. My room though small was clean and tidy and perfect for my needs and breakfast was sufficient. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended hotel in Paris.
We had a very pleasant staying at The Place Hotel. Convenient location, just 15 mins walk from EuroStar station. Easy access to all tourist attractions. A lot of family run French restaurant choices in the neighbourhood. Friendly atmosphere. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Room size is ok and cleaned. The breakfast is alright. We would stay again if we visit Paris next time.

Poor 2.0
Not as described at all
Room not as described. TV 80cm not 180cm & rooms not soundproofed - could hear even tiny conversations from next door very clearly. Made me wait 1.5 hours late until checkin. Not staffs fault just too busy and poor descriptions. Not a great area too. Interestingly they had no rooms with the above specs so no idea how that became the description.

place to stay for a couple nights
We loved the location. Very close to the gare nord. It’s a northern African neighbourhood and a bit poor but no concerns for safety at all. Hotel staff super lovely and helpful. The room a bit small but it’s central Paris after all so dis not expect more for that price. Btw. Free coffee always available which is great.

A Basic hotel close to Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre.
A basic hotel within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre Paris however it has to be said that imo it is not situated in one of the nicer areas of Paris. A metro station is just a two minute walk up the road. The room was small but sufficient for a single person and the bed was comfortable. The room was clean but I did notice that the were wall tiles in the bathroom particularly around the toilet that needed cleaning. Overall

Poor 2.0
The staff was not very good here and the place is a lot smaller than it looks like in the pictures. The incompetence of the manager on staff here was enough to make me stay away from this place in the future. He is rude to his staff and customers and has no place working in the hospitality industry.

Great stay near Sacrée Coeur
Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful! The coffee machine at the recep was a lifesaver from the cold. While the room is a bit small as with most other Paris hotel, it has most of the basics:)

Fun boutique hotel with friendly staff
Smooth check in process and front desk guys were excellent! Very friendly and informative. Breakfast had a good variety of options go on the earlier side as it tends to get crowded. It was great boutique hotel for us and we didn’t mind being a little further out from “downtown”. Paris is very big and during our stay the train out of downtown area shutdown at 11pm, so we were scrabbling to figure out a bus or walking plan to get back- once we figured it out no problem at all. Room was typical size for European room, plenty of bathroom space with spacious shower great A/C on the hot Paris days.
