When we arrived our room was not ready, but they let us store our bags. We returned after work and they showed us to what they said was their best room. By some measures it surely is, it is spacious, with a desk and a good sized bathroom with a bathtub. But something nagged at me, the room faces the street, which is noisy in the day. The hotel is extremely well located in the heart of the Bastille area, walking distance to Le Marias, the Latin Quarter, and the Gare de Lyon. But after a night in the room facing the street, with almost no sleep because of the noise (even with the window closed) we asked to be moved to a room not facing the street. At first I thought there was no chance, but later they came and showed us a much smaller room in the back, overlooking some roofs. The room was extremely small, but fine for sleeping. The bathroom is also small. But this Hotel was 30% less than one we had stayed in the previous week in Paris. I mean what do you expect, you are going to get the Ritz at these prices. I think the accomadation shown by the staff was great and the internet works, for the price you can not ask for more.
