I booked a couple of nights in this hotel and pretty much got what I expected (and paid for) ... a small, clean and very conveniently-located hotel (for me, working nearby) without many frills and a style that might charitably be called minimalist ('stylish' is perhaps a bit of a stretch!).
My room was cosy, maybe OK for a honeymooning couple but a little more comfortable if there's only one suitcase. But it was spotless, everything worked and the staff were exceptionally and unusually helpful and friendly.
My room overlooked the Boulevard Of Midnight Babble at the end of Rue St Denis (which you should wander along during the day) ... I don't really mind, it's all a part of the Parisian atmosphere and I can nurture my cosmopolitan pretensions ... but you might want a rear room if you're a patchy sleeper.
Here's a wrinkle ... my shirts missed an iron!
And I'd be wary of channel-surfing - I got a hard-core surprise right next to BBC World News. Not a problem for me but you may want to track down the channel lock process if travelling with kids. Thinking this through, maybe porn lockout should be the default in hotels?
I think the price is probably appropriate, there's a huge Citadines just up the rue and it's certainly comparable ... and probably a little less generic.
I don't mean to damn with faint praise, it's certainly an OK hotel.
in summary therefore ...
I'm reluctant to recommend for a romantic rendezvous, it's bland rather than beautiful and a better booking for a brief business billet.
