We stayed here for three nights and the staff was welcoming, knowledgable, and friendly. The room was spotless, and well appointed. The street noise was noticeable, but hey, it's Paris after all...you're going to have big city noise. The location is fantastic, with tons of great shopping; chains, mega-stores, boutiques and everything in between. Great accessibility to Metro and buses. A good place to stay if you've never been to Paris before and want to be in the middle of the shopping universe.
