In 1991, we stayed in a small hotel on the Left Bank on a small alley-type street. The hotel was historic...built in the 16th century for the King's mistress. Owned currently by an American woman involved in the world of jazz. We found it through Frommer. Lovely rooms with original beams. Breakfast served in a wonderful basement cave-like room with...

Stayed here for 3 nights with a friend in October. Great, quiet street in a bustling part of the city. Yes, lots of stairs, but we read that review and were prepared. We brought breakfast up to our room in the morning and enjoyed coffee on the little balcony. Friendly staff. Clean room. Walk to all transit including RER direct... More

This little hotel was cute as a button! Perfect representation of classical Paris style and old charm. Wood beams in rooms, lobby and stairs were beautiful! The location was PERFECT! Close to everything a tourist wants to see on a short stay. The room décor and bedding was very outdated but clean and fresh. The bathroom was a nice surprise.... More

We've just spent a night in this lovely quaint hotel. Our bedroom was small and the shower-room is a feat of ingenuity to make everything fit. And it does! The bed was excellent. The decor is very nice. Breakfast is exactly what we wanted and quickly served. Everyone who looked after us was friendly. We were happy with our stay... More

Well, except for all those stairs! I know that many of the rooms are small and can be dark, but mine (room 22) was of a reasonable size, had a bright new bathroom with pretty tile work, and large french doors opening onto a small balcony with a table and chairs. I've been coming here for 30 years and this... More

Close to restaurants and shops. Well located in a side road so it is very quiet at night. A good Parisian breakfast is served in the morning. Lots of stairs so not for the elderly or if you have big bags. Clean comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again

Main location but privet little street. The place is so charming that you might accept the 100 curved stairs you should climb to your room every day... at least once... i visited with my mother (78 years old) - it wasn't easy. The area is exiting, many cafes and restaurants, near by the "CITE" and other attractions. Close to METRO.

Very close to the main features of paris, very close to cafes and resturants, historic building but the room was small. It was neat no air conditioner, we were given a fan, which was okay. good location, no lift all stairs okay if you do not have much luggage.

I stayed here in February of 2014 while travelling with my cousin. It took us quite a while to find the hotel after we came from the Metro, as it is along a very small and private street. When we got there, the man working at the desk seemed fairly polite, maybe a little snappy, but he talked to us... More
