The only reason I booked this hotel was the location (we always stay in the 5th or 6th Arrondisment) and the fact that it has air conditioning. I was in Paris two years ago with my daughters and stayed in another hotel while the temperatures reached almost 40 C degrees. This was one of the few hotels that offered confort but was fully booked at the time so we suffered. This summer, same time of year (July 14th to 21st) the mornings greated us with temperatures in the teens on a few occassions. Summers in Paris are so unpredictable so you must pack for all occassions. Ok, back to the hotel....nice location, we had a great view of the Pantheon. Started out in room 21 with a horrible shower and were moved the next day to a higher floor (funny, I heard a yound lady complain about the same room shower that afternoon so it was not just we that were unhappy). The rooms are tiny, the balcony even more so but it did the trick. It is a short distance to the Luxemburg Gardens and to so many great restaurants and attractions. The staff was friendly (made sure we took an umbrella on days that forcasted rain - they had a number of them at the front desk that we could borrow) and always greated us with a smile.
I have visited Paris a number of times and this is a reasonably priced, well situated, friendly, clean hotel - nothing fancy but it fits the bill. My husband, who was in Paris for the first time, loved it. He sat on the steps of the Pantheon every evening taking in the view of the Eiffel Tower. According to him, why would we stay anywhere else on our next visit?
