This is one of my very favourite hotels - how very different to standard chain hotels. The service is excellent and the front desk staff are very helpful. I particularly like the intimacy of the breakfast room, the patio and the sitting areas; the owners have made a great job of creating a really interesting space out of relatively small areas. I have stayed at the hotel three times; each time I arrive anew it is with great pleasure and almost like arriving home. The location in the 6th arrondissement makes it excellent for shops, restaurants and other attractions.
