The hotel was within walking distance of the metro, a convenience store, and at least 8 different restaurants, each with its own ethnic focus. Also within walking distance of one of the not-often-visited tourist sites, Père Lachaise cemetery.
Everyone was extremely friendly. We were actually bumped up to the Honeymoon Suite when we arrived at no additional charge simply because "they had an opening." They give you your own little slippers with the hotel logo, which is adorable. The shower was amazing with jets that sprayed from multiple angles. While the room was small, even for the honeymoon suite, it was nice to come home to someplace as beautiful as the rest of the city.
We actually preferred not staying so close to the other tourist sites because it forced us to see other areas of Paris, and to be around actual French people instead of tourists constantly. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the city.
There's something to be said about the fact that it is ranked 14th out of over 1,000 Parisian hotels.
