Hotel Le Crayon is in the 1st Arrondisement, a short walk from Paris's three major art museums - Louvre, Musee d'Orsay (Impressionism) and Georges Pompidou (modern art). Very close by is Rue Montorgueil, a popular pedestrian street filled with reasonably priced (for Paris) restaurants and food markets. Chatelet Les Halles Metro is the stop for several subway and train lines . . . Very convenient.
So much for the superb location. The rooms are jewel like. Yes, my single chamber was small, enough space for the comfy double bed and walkway around it, but the brightly painted walls and sexy, yet delicately rendered art cheered me! When I returned to my apartment in the US, I thought, What's with this space? It is not necessary when one has such a pleasing, happy decor.
The floor to ceiling tiled and colorfully lit shower is unbelievable. Two shower heads, one on the ceiling and one on a moveable hose, are perfect. My sink, however, was too tiny and it was hard to wash my face without splashing water everywhere.
The staff is so nice and always helpful. When I needed to rest during the day in a blackened room, the maid came by and prepared my room for me. They arranged for cabs, printed my boarding pass, and helped me with my luggage.
If you get hungry in the middle of night, just go downstairs to the cafe next door. It is open 24-7.
