PRO: The location of the hotel is one of the best you can find in Paris, close to the Centre Pompidou and the Marais district. Also the metro (Hotel de Ville) and the RER (Chatelet-Les Halles) are very near, just 5 minutes walk. Notre Dame and l'Ile Saint-Louis are very near too, as well as the latin district.
We stayed in room number 9, the one with the flying buttresses, that is exactly as you can see in the pictures: great! The gothic atmosphere is fantastic (I love medieval style and architecture), the wood carved forniture is really fine and the room is big enough as the bathroom. Sleep quality is ok due to the confortable king size bed, although from the street comes some noise during the night and early in the morning.
People at the reception are very kind and supportive.
CONS: many ruined details, such as the bath tub tap, the lamp-shades and the stairs floor carpeting, give an overall impression of a decadent and a bit moldy place. In one word, this hotel to be perfect would need a restoration, because in the actual conditions it is not worth the price.
Note that the hotel does not have a lift and the stairs are very narrow; there is no AC in room number 9 and no TV (even if we did not miss it at all !!!) and there is no bar, all the common spaces are very narrow. Breakfast is not bad but nothing special, a little bit expensive.
Anyway, if you don't mind these details and you want to have a true gothic experience in a great location, this is the place for you!
