All the very good and excellent ratings say it all - great staff, perfect location, clean, quiet, outstanding value, have returned often - the only reason for withholding 5 stars is a concern that some travelers are so unaware of Paris hotels in general that they might expect large rooms, and this is a wonderful hotel, but not a chain, not large rooms. Walk out the door and you have the Louvre, Pont Neuf, Pont des Arts, Rue Rivoli, 2 metro stations within 3 - 5 minutes stroll, as well as cafes, and Fumoir, great spot for a drink and just watch the world go by. Musee d'Orsay 15 minute stroll. Left bank, Notre Dame, St Chapelle, winding streets of St Germaine 10 - 15 minute walks away. Wonderful!!
