This hotel is perfect for those looking for a relatively inexpensive base to explore Paris. Others have described it quite well: small rooms and bath, but very clean and functional. All the staff are all fantastically helpful, speak English, and are very friendly. The tiny elevator has that sort of charm that small Paris hotels are so well known for. Best to ride it with only one person at a time if you have luggage. My wife and I always used the stairs to get to our third floor room after we ad settled in.
The hotel includes free wifi, which we usually require to keep in touch for our jobs. It worked okay but not great in our room, though the signal was very strong in the lobby and breakfast room. One day, it failed completely, but the woman at the desk was determined to get it working for us, which she did about a half-hour after we told her of the problem.
We had chosen a superior room with a courtyard "view", meaning no view, really. But, it was amazingly quiet on that side of the hotel, except for the occasional loud argument that some French-speaking person would have occasionally. While small, the room was fine for the night and for the occasional check-in during the day. If you like to lounge at a fancy hotel, then go elsewhere. This hotel is for experiencing Paris.
As others noted, the location is spectacular, with many nearby art galleries, the 6th century abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, dozens of cafes and brasseries within 5 minutes walk. We especially enjoyed the nearby restaurant Le Petite Cour, about a block away.
For our outings, we often used the St. Michel RER station for its convenience, providing access to visit Versailles, or go to the airport, for example. It is just 7-8 minutes walk away. We also took the RER C line to visit the lesser known, but excellent, impressionist museum, Marmotten-Monet. The Mabillon and Saint-Germain stations are closer (2-4 minutes), but didn't usually provide access to our destinations. We also walked quite a bit ... The Lourve, Tuileries, Jardin de Luxembourg are within 15-20 minutes away; the Seine is about 5 minutes walk.
There is also a "mini-mall" across the street from the hotel for those needing to visit the Gap store, or grab some food at one of the restaurants.
Hotel Le Clement is nothing fancy, but it works, is comfortable, and everyone is pleasant. I would never have chosen it myself, but fortunately, it was recommended by a coworker, and it was an excellent recommendation.
Courtyard view rooms are quiet, but have no real view.
