I stayed here two weeks ago and loved the quaintness of the hotel, and the location. the cost was not bad either. the rooms are tiny but expected. my worst complaint about the actual room is that I PAID for two single beds and ended up having to share a dollhouse sized bed with a friend. that was not comfortable....

I stayed at this hotel 22 years ago so when a friend suggested for a recent one night stay in Paris, I jumped on it. In this instance, we could go back. The location continues to be my favorite in Paris, within easy walking distance to many of the city's greatest attractions. In my opinion, every street in the area... More

This little hotel is situated in a great location, has a certain quirky charm and the staff are lovely. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel. Yes, the rooms are small and, in the summer, ask for a room with air con, but it's very comfortable and clean. Helpful, friendly lady on reception and charming Jean in the breakfast room.... More

Nothing was too much trouble, from booking resturants, taxis, and random pieces of advice. For travellers like us with 4 days to see as much as possible in Paris this is a great location, quiet and well appointed. Terrific location for contemporary galleries as well as access to all the great museums. Good for food and shopping.

In Paris you can always expect small rooms. This is not an exception. But the decoration is charming, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast buffé is small but quite enough for an European stomach. The interior in the breakfastroom is wonderful. The cleaning is good and the only thing I can complain about is that our room wasn't cleaned until... More

My wife and I started our 2 week vacation with a 4 day stay in Paris. We chose this hotel based on recommendations from a friend who has stayed here in the past. We were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Small by American standards, but not so in France. The staff was helpful and friendly. And... More

Stayed for a week end of April. Location was amazing. Walking distance to many sites and metro stop a block away. Rooms were small as previously mentioned but clean. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Our room faced the street so it was a bit noisy.

I wrote a review of this hotel in December 2013 only to find it mysteriously deleted. I got bed bugs here - only to be told by reception that I had brought them with me. (Very funny - this was my first stop from home). Whilst the hotel shifted my rooms, the biggest issue I had was the lack of... More

We were here for the weekend and wanted "cheap". That we got. Very cozy little room (actually, tiny would be a better description, but warm). Very helpful staff and friendly to boot. Problem was we a) had absolutely no view other than an array of pies outside the window, and b) I am convinced our room was directly over the... More
