My husband and I just returned after one week at the Hotel de l'Abbaye. We arrived very early after an all-night flight. We were ushered out to the beautiful courtyard for a relaxing breakfast of breads, juice and coffee--a treat we enjoyed every morning. Our room was lovely, even though small. The bathroom was a good size, with good water pressure and lots of hot water. Everything was spotless. We never experienced any night time noise from other rooms or from the street. I loved our location, on a quiet street that was close to restaurants and the St. Sulpice metro station. The very best part of this hotel, though, was the staff. They were gracious, helpful, and truly seemed as though they were glad to have us stay with them. It was always such a treat to return to our quiet sanctuary at the end of a long day of sight-seeing. I would never consider staying anywhere else in Paris.
