We enjoyed our stay, the location is not pretty but it is only one road from the main Rue de la Republique with all the nice places to eat and shop. It's walkable from the station if you don't mind dragging your bags. The room was small but had everything we needed (apart from a toaster). It was clean although there were a lot of long hairs around on the carpet from a previous occupant, which was a little off-putting. Great to have a heated towel rail so we didn't end up with damp towels. Nice to have a big balcony (floor 5 studio for 2). Shower was over the bath and perfectly adequate. Bed was comfortable. Good to have a 'rubbish room' down the corridor, but only found by accident. As silver Accor members we got a late checkout very handy.
