This was our first trip to Paris and this hotel was the perfect choice. It is really quite wonderful, situated across from a little park at the end of a short dead-end street. Quiet, comfortable and superb value. It only has 13 rooms but has all the amenities. The staff were very friendly and courteous, and graciously provided us with suggestions and directions for restaurants and sight-seeing. They stored our luggage when we arrived, and the day we left, as we were not catching our train until the evening, they stored our luggage all day, leaving us free to wander the sights of Paris. Our room had 2 small balconies on the top floor facing the little park. It was a very comfortable room, nice size, little kitchenette, good sized bathroom and very quiet. There was a table and 2 chairs on the balcony and it was a perfect place to unwind with some great food and wine before or after touring the city. We had the hotel breakfast the first morning and it was adequate. From then on though, we chose to walk 5 minutes down to Blvd St Germaine, turn left, and buy fresh food, wine, cheese, bread and anything else we needed for a superb feast on our own balcony at the hotel. The little kitchenette provides the facilities to cook a meal, as we did the next morning for breakfast. This made our hotel experience an amazing memory. The hotel is an easy 10 minute stroll to Notre Dame Cathedral and the Seine. It is in a little quieter area of the city but is easily accessible to all the rest of the amazing sights of Paris. We look forward to returning to Paris and staying at Residence Henry IV.
