I've traveled to Paris for 20 years and stayed in 35 or 40 different hotels during that time. Hotel Virginia is one of the best values I've seen. The room and common areas were very clean. Hotel feels new throughout. The hotel is on a very quiet side street less than 5 minute walk from the Porte d'Orleans metro stop (line 4) and the Porte d'Orleans (tram 3a stop), making it very convenient. Room that I booked (lowest category) was small but made very efficient use of space. WiFi worked well and consistently on both my devices. If you're traveling during summer, be aware that the hotel not only has air conditioning, but a thermostat in each room--a rarity for Paris. Mattress was very comfortable; there are three grocery stores (Lidl, Leader Price, Franprix) less than 50 meters from the hotel. Also be aware that you will be asked to pay the local Paris city lodging tax (in French, la taxe de sejour) of 1,88 euros at check in, even if your room is prepaid through the booking website. This is not a scam; all hotels in Paris are required to collect this tax. This was the only problem that I had: the clerk asked me to pay it on checking in and I did because I was leaving two days later at 5.30 am. On check-out, a different clerk insisted that I pay the tax again. I protested but did not have a receipt to show, and ended up paying again after a brief argument. I sent the hotel an email in French to the hotel asking for a refund, but a week later still have had no response.
