Hôtel Tourisme Avenue, Has anyone stayed here?

I will be traveling with two adults and two teenage children in March. The Hôtel Tourisme Avenue seems to fit our needs for a centrally located, moderately priced hotel that can accommodate our family of 4. I would appreciate any input from someone who knows of or has stayed at this hotel in Paris.

Thanks in Advance!

I have not stayed there.. but it is a "sister " hotel to one I have stayed in( Hotel St Pierre).. if it is anything alike rooms will be clean.. but small. Understand when I say small ... I mean small.. as that is the norm for that price range in that area. Clean, basic.. everything one would need,. I would stay there myself ..
The location is fine.. its convenient to many sites and three metro lines. Safe and fun area.

The reviews on both and reviews are very reliable as only people who have booked through them and completed a stay are allowed to post unlikely any plant reviews) are very good.

I would note that children may share a sofa bed.. are they small enough to be ok with that ?

I would not hesitate to book it if you are happy with price ( which for a quad room in that area is a good price).

Yes! We just stayed there in Sept. as part of the My Way Europe Tour. It was great! The Eiffel Tower is close, Metro is right outside and the staff was very helpful!! There was a market on Sunday ,very nice location. Unless something has happened between then and now, I would recommend it

This is all SO helpful and has put my mind at ease. Being 4 people was making finding suitable was a little more challenging. I did email the hotel asking for split bed for teen-age children and they responded right away and assured me they could accommodate our request. thanks for all the timely input!

Post travel update.....The Hotel Tourisme Avenue is the bee's knees! The room they gave us, right at the top of the first flight of stairs was bright and roomy. There was a second room with separate twin beds for the kids, and a large, king size bed for us in the main room (which included a desk, flat screen television and small refrigerator.) Separate water closet (with a 'smart toilet'), and very modern and spacious bathroom area. There was even a small safe in the wardrobe. Maid service came in daily and made the room spotless so that we ended each day coming back to a spic and span room with crisp, freshly made beds. Heaven!

Staff was friendly, very helpful, and English fluent. Metro stop is literally right outside the door. Even though were merely a few blocks from the the Eiffel Tower, the hotel area was really more of a residents neighborhood. There were many bistros, boulangerie, swarma places, pharmacy, market and a McDonald's (I know, I know---but when your kids are hungry at 11pm it's a Godsend), not to mention the Starbucks right next door. We even made use of the laundromat just around the corner. There was a market under the raised train on Wednesday.

The only commentary I have is that the hotel is actively going through a renovation. At various time's there were new mattresses or cartons of 'things' stacked inconspicuously in the hallways and we could smell fresh paint when we first arrived, but it was not a bother at all. For all intents and purposes, it looked like a brand new hotel yet had the feel and ambiance of a lovely little boutique hotel. Loved, loved, LOVED this place and if I am ever blessed to find myself in Paris again---I'm headed straight back to Hotel tourisme Avenue.
