Well, hikegodeep (I wish you'd go back to your name), since you asked, I wrote this on TA :
I have stayed often at Ibis and from the reviews, I naively expected this to be less than Ibis, but okay. There is barely enough room to walk around the bed. There was one chair - the only place to put a suitcase. There was no storage space at all. The shower stall is right in the room, so when you open the shower door, cold and naked to get a towel you are in the middle of the room. The lights in the sink area kept going off after only a few minutes and would not go on again. My room was next to the elevator and I could hear noises all the time.
The first room I was given was unacceptable - the shower door was warped and did not close. They did give me another room immediately. I was very cold all night - the temperature never went above 19 C degrees. There was one thin blanket on the double bed and another thin one for the bunk bed, which I also used.
The area seemed quiet (my room was in the back, not facing the street), the only noises are the ones you hear inside the hotel. There was no minimarket nearby - or much of anything else. On the plus side, it was only about a 10-15 minute walk to the Old Town and the Monoprix.
I guess if you are really counting pennies, it's okay. It was pretty clean though everything looks kind of worn out, and there was plenty of hot water. Never again an Etap for me, though.
