We stayed here for three days whilst we visited Paris. It is very close to the Peripherique so doesn't involve driving within Paris, which was part of the attraction. One thing to note, though, is that the sat nav got a bit confused and, in our driving around the local streets we spotted another Ibis Budget - the Porte d'Italie Est and mistakenly tried to check in there. Both hotels could do with signs on the outside saying which they are to avoid this! It is basic, but perfectly fine. The receptionist the night we arrived was wonderful - I think his name was Anwar - and I saw him dealing simultaneously with queries in Italian and French, and then he spoke impeccable English with us. I believe he also speaks Japanese and German! He was really helpful. The rooms were clean but the drain in our shower smelt when it hadn't been used for a few hours. Also, the bunk beds (which we were using as there were 6 of us sharing two rooms) were not made by the cleaning staff, who did remake the double beds each day. The breakfast was as expected for Ibis Budget - plentiful - but the coffee at this hotel was rather weak for some reason. The situation was good and we were not troubled by noise as I see other travellers have been - but we used the air conditioning rather than open the window and this was absolutely fine. The hotel could do with a repaint - beginning to look a little shabby - but, for the price, we had no complaints. The position was good - half a mile to the metro and straight in to the centre. A small supermarket nearby and we had a lovely meal at a bistro on the corner of the main road (Italian - but I don't recall the name). Not the prettiest corner of Paris, but cheap and convenient.
