6/10 Good

It’s okay to stay here. Nice staffs. Nice room.
Not much to say. The workers are friendly and the facilities are functioning in the room. But the review and photos on their website are totally different than in reality. Except that toilet and room are spacious, not small as other hotels in Paris.
