Enjoyed a stay here, in 15th arr; helpful staff - they all speak English. Helped out with maps & directions, taxi bookings etc. Had one or two hitches which they solved ASAP: room with broken AC- we
got moved and even upgraded, locked myself out of the safe which they sorted pronto. Good crew, this.
Decent breakfast- good choice, usual cooked & other bits, different French breads, genuinely fresh orange juice. Not stellar but decent, certainly better than I've had at other HI properties here in the UK.
Good few restaurants & supermarkets around- there's a Franprix (seems like their Sainsburys equivalent) 2 streets away, even open all day Sunday. Note though- Eiffel Tower is certainly greater than "15 minutes walk"- be ready for a hike, or get some transport. And uber is half to a third the cost of the regular taxis, so get an uber rather than have reception call you a taxi.
Great stay overall, I'd gladly return. [Less]
