We booked this hotel as part of an anniversary trip to Paris after reading a small blurb about it in a popular travel magazine. We'd been to Paris several times but had never stayed in the 1st arrondissement before. The location was ideal for a 4-day visit because you are close to everything - Louvre, Marais, Opera, etc. We almost never took even took the Metro because we could just walk. The staff of the hotel are particularly nice and helpful - even advising via email about local yoga studios before we arrived. We had a junior suite and found it quite large by European standards. It was light-filled and we loved the funky mix of old/new and the unique color scheme. Breakfast was not included in our rate, but we did eat there twice and found it to be standard fare (which, in Paris, means very nice). We may be going back to Paris soon for other reasons and we'll definitely try to book here again.
