This hotel is just a few blocks away from the cathedral, but (mostly!) away from the tourist traffic. The room was comfortable, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast good but not as much of a selection as in some hotels.
A few minor glitches: (1) the hotel's free WiFi is very fast when it works, but it was offline (for the whole hotel, apparently) one entire day. (2) As with many European hotel baths, the shower head is great but the concept of a "shower door" seems to have escaped someone. There's just a short glass panel to keep shower spray from ending up on the floor. Worse, it's rendered entirely useless because it creates a channel between the side of the tub and the panel, so all of the water that collects there lands directly on the floor. (3) My room overlooked the side street (Rue du Miroir). I opened the window a bit at night (otherwise the room was kind of warm) and on one night all was quiet -- but the second night, the club across the street must have closed at around 5am, and a large, noisy crowd gathered outside for a while. So maybe you should avoid this side of the hotel if you like to sleep with the window open.
