Stayed at La Manufacture which is about 60 seconds from Place d'Italie metro station. It is further South than most people would stay but it only cost us about 12Euro each from CDG airport after catching the RER (B) into Gare De Nord and then catching Metro Number 5 straight into Place d'Italie. In all took about 60 mins from CDG to the Hotel with all the signs really easy to follow at the airport and stations so need for expensive taxis if you only have one wheeled suitcase each.
Once at the Hotel, Place d'Italie has great bus and metro links to all the main aspects of Paris so it is really easy to get around and see all the sites.
The Hotel Itself is ok – better than I had envisaged. We were greeted very warmly and found all the staff very accommodating and friendly. We asked for a top floor room as we had read that it can get noisy. We were in room 723 which is ok but has a sloping ceiling so feels a lot smaller. Friends were in room 722 which is a much better shape. Room 724 looked by far the best on the top floor but I guess you would have to pay more for this. Bed and pillows were really comfortable. Area a little noisy being so close to the centre of Place d’Italie and did get woken a couple of times with police sirens, but no problems with noise from adjacent rooms or noisy plumbing etc. Room had TV with BBC world news and tea and coffee making facilities. All in all an enjoyable stay – no hassle or problems!
We did not take breakfast in the hotel so cannot comment on the quality or whether it is worth 13Euros, but there are plenty of places within a short walk that offer a 6Euro breakfast.
