Our entire group stayed at the Fimotel for several nights in Paris. For a home base in such a large city, I really couldn't have complained. We were't located right in the heart of all the attractions, but close enough that we were a short ride away on the Metro. It was nice having the Metro nearby, and if we wanted, there were also restaurants within walking distance. Unfortunately for us, being really young at the time, our teachers did not let us venture without their supervision.
The Fimotel was located in a triangular building, built up on 5 floors. There were no elevators, so you had to walk up and around triangular staircases to get to your room. Since we were sharing rooms amongst our classmates, it was often 4 boys to a room and 4 girls to a room, sharing 2 beds. The rooms were big enough and each had a view looking outside and a bathroom with a large bath tub. There were shower nozels attached to the faucet, but there were no shower curtains, so taking a shower in the morning was definitely our first challenge that we faced each day!
Note that I'm unsure if this hotel exists anymore. I haven't been able to find much information on the web, and Fimotel, though apparently a chain in Europe, doesn't have a website!
Unique Quality: A complimentary breakfast was included with our stay. I don't remember it in detail other than it was served in a common room. I remember drinking coffee or hot chocolate, and eating a lot of baguettes and croissants. I'm sure there was more choice than that, but not much. It wasn't a hot breakfast.
Directions: Located just a block away from the Gare De L'est Metro station in the 10ème Arrondissement of Paris.
