The location was excellent. Just a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower, several cafés and bars right outside the door of the hotel. Neighborhood had lots of foot traffic and I felt safe walking alone, even at night. This hotel was a pretty good value based on those factors.
The downsides? This is a very old hotel. I read the negative reviews before booking here, and they are not wrong...there was some water damage on the ceiling of my room, carpeting was old, bathroom was old and the elevator was only large enough for one rider at a time. In my room, the dead bolt wouldn't work, but the door and chain locked properly. There wasn't another room available to switch to, and it was after hours when I noticed the lock wouldn't close so they couldn't call anyone in to do the repair.
The hotel room was very, VERY clean. In fact, I had to open the window because you could smell the bleach and pine-sol they had cleaned the room with. The bed was comfy and had new bedding.
Overall, this is a good value and a great location. If you want luxury, this is not for you. If you are in Paris to see Paris and just want an inexpensive clean place to sleep for a few hours check it out.
