This was my first trip to Paris and I travelled solo, I had no knowledge of the area and chose Hotel Darcet based on prior Trip Advisor reviews. It definitely lived up to those reviews. The room was simple, extremely clean and had all the basics you need. The staff was very friendly and willing to help despite the fact I spoke no French. Zion at the front desk was happy to make a number of recommendations for me! I walked to most of the sites from the hotel, some of them could be a decent walk, but if you prefer, a cheap taxi ride. And there are lots of bakeries and restaurants around the area. Overall, I would definitley recommend this hotel!
