This hotel is an acquired taste. I loved my stay because I felt like I was a part of the bustling, vibrant, welcoming neighborhood. I didn't feel like a tourist. I was hardly in my room because even when I was tired from walking to the Louvre or Marais and back, the neighborhood revived me. I had to go out and just enjoy the sights and sounds.
The hotel is small and old, but I find it charming more than rundown. My single room was a perfect size. I did have a shower, but personally I prefer that. I was on a high floor, but after walking up and down stairs all day throughout Paris, 3 more floors isn't a big deal. The strapping young man who checked me in quickly and efficiently would probably have carried my bags up if I asked him. I didn't use the breakfast option because I like to try a new cafe every morning, but you barely have to leave the short Rue du Dragon to find 2-3 patisseries and cafés.
The wifi worked great which turned out to be a lifesaver as I wasn't supposed to be travelling for business, but the office fell into chaos (not because of me). But I spent a few hours on Skype calls and Google chat. So I even found that I could do business from the unbusinesslike hotel.
You'll probably either love it or hate it, but I've never stayed in Paris and felt more at home.
