The location of this hotel is excellent, mid-way between two metro stops that will get most tourists to the places they will want to go: Place Monge (line 7) and Cardinal Lemoine (line 10). You can easily walk to Notre Dame Cathedral from here (conveniently passing by Eric Kayser on the way). I stayed here for three nights in mid-June at a rate of 165 euros per night.
The rooms are as small as one would expect for Paris. The double bed was quite comfortable. There is not much room to move around. There is a built-in desk and cupboard for clothing. There's a mini-fridge but you are not supposed to use it to store your things, there's a notice that it is for the hotel's minibar items only.
Although this isn't the smallest bathroom I've ever been in, it's certainly one of the smallest. Two people could not share it at the same time, but the layout is such that it will work fine for one person. The shower wasn't large but I think the real problem was the shower curtain and the water faucet and handles protrude about six inches out of the wall, which really cut into the space you have to maneuver. But the bathroom was clean and functional. My towels were replaced daily. The bathroom amenities include shampoo and conditioner, soap, shower cap, vanity kit (Q-tips, cotton balls, emery board), and plastic cups. There is a corkscrew (probably located on top of the mini fridge) and extra pillows in the cupboard.
The rooms are small but that's to be expected. If you are on the Rue Monge side, you will get street noise but the point of staying at this hotel is the fantastic location, and fantastic locations tend to those with a lot of vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The front desk people are friendly and helpful. Don't bother with breakfast, there are great bakeries close by in any direction you wander and cafes (for your cafe au lait or cappuccino) at both ends of the block. Finally, Pharmacie Monge in Place Monge carries an extensive selection of French skincare and cosmetic lines will do on-the-spot tax-free sales (175 euro purchase required) but you will need your passport.
