Stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in Paris and was very pleased. The location is perfect and I could walk easily to many attractions (Louvre is only about a 10 min walk) which is great. It is located on a quiet street but only 1 minute from Boulevarde Haussman
The rooms are on the small side, and as I have not stayed anywhere else in Paris I cannot compare, but based on a lot of research this seemed to be pretty standard for the city. As a single traveller though, this was fine but a standard room might be cramped for 2 so I would look at getting a bigger room. Bed was comfortable and the room has air conditioning so slept well.
Everything was new and clean and this was really important. Compared to some of the prices I encountered while searching for a hotel, I feel lucky to have found this hotel as it is great value compared with some of the astronomical prices of paris hotels.
There are also a couple of small niceties that I didn't expect from a 3 star hotel such as room service options (from 5pm to 1:30am) and options for massages and beauty treatments in your room. Staff were also quite friendly
Some of the complaints from other reviews are true, however they are annoying for about 1 second. For example the first time you enter, the hallways are narrow, however this is just for the couple of metres you have to walk to your room and you only have luggage when you first check in. The light also turns on within a few steps of walking out of your room so that wasn't really a problem.
Would definitely recommend to others - great find for me
