I went to Paris recently for a solo trip and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in the single superior bedrooms with a private bathroom. The location is great as it is a 10 minute walk from Le Marais and approx 20 minute walk from Rue Rivoli which are both very trendy places for shopping away from the mainstream Champs Elysees. Place des Vosges is only 5 minutes away from the hotel which is also another way to get to Le Marais. For those who prefer the Left Bank of Paris, this hotel situated on Rue St. Antoine, is a 20 minute walk to the Notre Dame which will then lead you to the Left Bank.
The M1 line goes straight to Bastille or St. Paul metro station which is convenient if you are travelling via Gare du Nord.
This hotel has no elevators (which was not a problem for me personally since I didn't have heavy luggage) and the wifi is not the greatest speed, but thankfully Parisian parks have free wifi access.
All in all, it is a hotel that is worth staying at if you are looking for a good location and are planning to spend most of your days discovering Paris and being outdoors.
