We really liked this hotel. It's in the Port D'Oleans area, which is a little far from the typical tourist sites. however, there is a Metro station 1.5 blocks away, so it was easy to get around Paris...we never used a taxi. IWe also found a mini market and laundromat around the corner, which helped save money. There was a nice little cafe on the corner.
The guy who works the desk during the day was great. He spoke good English and Spanish, and helped us fully understand how to use the Metro and the bus system. The night didn't really speak English, so we left our questions for the morning.
We were served a typical continental breakfast in our room, which cost 7 euros. At first we thought it was expensive, the cafe on the corner charged 5.50, so for a couple of bucks the convenience was worth it. They also threw our daughter's meal in for free, so it turned out to be cheaper than eating in the street.
We had a triple room, which was large enough for two adults and a child. The shower was small, but good pressure and plenty of hot water. There was also free wi-fi, which was a bonus. We could call home using VOIP for 2 cents/minute. If you're planning on spending a lot of time in your room, this wouldn't be a good hotel. But who comes to Paris to stay in the room.
We would definitely stay again.

The Beaunier's rooms are quite small and there aren't a lot of amenities, but it was clean and everything worked. The best point was that it was inexpensive; well, by Paris standards anyway. So if you're just looking for a place to crash and plan to spend your days out seeing the sights, this is not a bad choice.
The front desk staff were helpful and spoke adequate English. We didn't try the hotel breakfast (not included in the room price, and least in the deal we got), but the bakery a couple of doors down was yummy. The neighborhood is not particularly fashionable or close to the sights, but not a ""bad"" neighborhood, and the side street the hotel is on was pretty quiet at night. We (couple with child) felt safe walking around after dark.
It's a short walk to a Metro station, Porte d'Orleans, the southern terminus of Line #4, which runs into the city center near the Louvre, Notre Dame, Pompidou, etc. Plenty of cafes and restaurants around the station, as well as grocery and convenience stores.
Even considering the Metro fares we paid, we saved the price of a good meal every day by staying here rather than any place we could find downtown.
