Good For Families
Good for a couple of nights.
I generally don't need hotels when I am in Paris, so I was wary about this. I didn't need to be at all as manager and staff were very friendly. Room was large enough for a couple of nights but was over-hot until I realised that it was the towe-dryer in the bathroom causing the heat. Slept better after turning that off. It is not the best area of Paris but you're only 200 metres from the Marais (across Blvd du Temple) and the same from Chemin Vert metro.
We paid 71.10 euros per night but b'fast was 7.50 on top each.
Unique Quality: There are no views to be had but I really like this working class area, with the Cirque d'Hiver not far, a short walk takes you to Republique and the Canal St. Martin or Bastille and a bit further on the Ile de la Cité and Notre Dame. If you enjoy walking, and Paris is made for that, then this hotel is not that far out at a reasonable price.
Directions: Just off the Blvd du Temple, halfway between Chemin Vert and Saint Sebastien-Froissart metro stations

Re: Food Budget in Paris July 2007
Don't know if your hotel includes breakfast or has coffee/tea making facilities but self catered juice/cereals/muesli/yoghurt/fresh fruit is an option. Take disposable bowls/ spoons/old tea towel etc with you. There are plenty of supermarkets in the area. Monoprix being one with several stores in 11th.
The take-away (pour emporter) is big in Paris and sandwich shops and creperies abound. Slightly more expensive hot pizza or quiches are available from boulangeries. Traiteurs and charcuteries both european and asian are to be found at Bastille with your choice of stuff from the very plain to the exotic packed in a plastic box with a spoon and a paper serviette. If looking for a sit-down meal - Restaurants have menus post outside so you can check prices before you enter. Take the kids for at least one self-catered picnic lunch in the gardens on the eastern side of the Arsenal Marina south of the Bastille roundabout. more tips -see http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/ae2c2/18308/4/
