The first thing you notice about this hotel upon arrival is that it looks quite the same as the many lovely apartment buildings and townhouses on this quiet street just two short blocks from the Seine. And when you walk into the hotel, it is as if you've stepped into the parlor of a comfortably appointed French home. No check-in desk or bellhops-- just a library-like office where one of the managers is always sitting down at a table, ready to assist you in making your stay at the hotel or in Paris just to your liking. The staff are what really sets this hotel apart: they are warm and welcoming, ready to make suggestions or offer useful tips, or otherwise offer a kind word. The rooms are small to be sure, but the room rates reflect this small drawback so it is a fair trade-off. This hotel is centrally located in St. Germain and serves as a cozy retreat as you come and go throughout the day.
