My brother, his girlfriend, and I took a weekend trip to Paris for my birthday weekend (3/22-3/24) and booked and paid for this hotel online. Having never stayed in an European hotel, I was unsure of what to expect. We had originally booked the 3 of us in one room, because Priceline wouldn't let us change the number of people...
It was surprisingly difficult to find the hotel, nestled as it was on a small side street. After about 20 minutes of driving around (on all one way streets) we finally got comfortable enough with the area to find a place to leave the car. It Should be noted that this hotel offers NO parking, either paid or free and the garages nearby are typical city parking garages- expensive. We finally got checked in, in 2 separate rooms as one room would have in no way accommodated the three of us.
The rooms were small, as most European hotels are, and there was no real view to speak of (I was in room 26 on the end of the hall), but if I opened the window all the way and leaned ALL the way out the window, I could see the very top of the tower!!!
I didn't notice any a/c, but it was March, and as I learned from a life long Parisienne while I was waiting for my party to return with the car, the Paris in March is often unpredictable, and more often than not very chilly!
Staff was very friendly and helpful, hotel was near the metro, it offered WiFi and clean sheets/ towels and each room had a private bathroom. There was a dining room/lounge downstairs, but we never went. It may not have been a flashy new hotel, but it had a very nice, old Paris charm to it that made my birthday weekend (and first trip to Paris) special.
