Don't compare my four stars with a four star hotel you would find outside a large, expensive city. I give it four stars because we were shocked that we could get something this affordable, yet comfortable, in the center of Paris. There were three of us, and we had three twin beds, as requested. I think our room was the anomaly with TWO FULL BATHS, because doubt all rooms had two. The room was small, but one would expect that from an inexpensive hotel in the center of Paris. The room and baths were exceptionally clean, and the beds were standard; nothing to brag about, but comfortable. The front desk service was quick, friendly, and efficient. One of the best things about this hotel is location. Bastille is a nice area, and this hotel is about three blocks from great restaurants and bars, as well as two blocks from the Bastille Metro station. It's about a 30 minute walk to Notre Dame, and also within walking distance of the Louvre, Place de Concorde, the Arch de Triomphe. We also walked to the Eiffel Tower, but it was quite a trek. We didn't eat the breakfast in the lobby (it was not included in our room rate), and there is an excellent bakery directly across the street where we had breakfast all three mornings. All in all, this is a great hotel for the price and if we were going back to Paris, we'd absolutely stay here again.
