This fall we stayed at the Hotel Le Clos Medicis for our week in Paris and I am a bit perplexed in rating it either Average or Very Good - sort of halfway between the two, or a bit of both.
I liked the general location (very walk-able to virtually all Paris sights, but then most hotels are!) with the Seine not far downhill, the Luxembourg Gardens very nearby, good access to Metro and RER stations, and just off busy St-Germain. But the street itself (rue Monsieur Le Prince) is a bit shabby in general and in particular we had a large dumpster filled with trash right on the street outside the front door of the hotel. Good news/bad news - the street was filled with a sizable number of Asian, especially Japanese, restaurants and only two with traditional French fares. However, the room was very clean, small but that is to be expected in central Paris. The front desk staff was very helpful, courteous and efficient as a case in point during one night we heard noises in the hallway (only 4 rooms on our "floor") and it seemed to be husband whose wife locked him out of the room, periodically passing him a blanket etc. It was quite disturbing to us who were trying to sleep but upon calling the front desk they got him elsewhere quite quickly!
The breakfast was nice but a bit spendy. Lastly from a cost/amenities perspective the hotel seemed to be a bit on the low end in terms of value, again nice but for what we paid I would hope for more.
