After a month-long trip that found us back in Paris for a night before we left, we stayed here. The hotel was easy to find/get to via the metro. Our room was clean and comfortable, and after walking around in 90 degree heat for a few hours, the air-conditioning was a treat (as most places we have stayed were not air-conditioned - though that's to be expected in most of Paris). The hotel served our purpose - comfortable bed and bathroom. They offer breakfast in your room in the morning for 12 euro pp, but there are plenty of cafes in the area where one can have a cafe (espresso) and a croissant for 3-5 euro tops - in that regard, the espresso was the cheapest we found at 1.10 euro just up the street at La Vanche, as opposed to the 2.50/3 euro you'd pay down in the Latin Quarter.
The highlight of our stay here was the deskman, Michel. Incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English when we tried our clumsy French. He gave us some restaurant recommendations, and after we found that the nice one we wanted to go to was closed (as August is usually vacation month for Parisians), he called and made a reservation for us at "Au Fil Des Saisons." Just a great person to have working as a the face of the company when entering the hotel. (Also, Au Fil Des Saisons was the best food experience we had all trip. Check out their listing and decide for yourself - it's a 15 minute walk tops from here.)
