If you're familiar with 3 star hotels in France then this is a perfect example. The place is not large, the rooms are comfortable, the bathroom is clean, everything works and you get a pretty good nights sleep at a reasonable price for a major city.
The hotel is on a quiet street just off the Rue Lafeyette and an easy walk from the Gare du Nord (and Eurostar). Rooms are not available on the day you check in until 15:00 but they will store your luggage for you. The lift is serviceable, it held the four of us and our luggage with room to spare. There is a nice staircase for when you don't have luggage, it's only dark if you don't switch the light on! We were on the 3rd floor at the front of the building; there was a bit of street noise but this was eliminated by shutting the window properly.
Breakfast is in a basement room, accessible from the lift. The food is standard; rolls, croissant, scrambled egg; pastries, fruit, tea/coffee/chocolate, cereal and crêpe - although they are not cooked fresh. For us this was inclusive in the room price.
We were here for 3 nights with friends and we all felt it was ideally suited to visiting many of the sites of Paris over a long weekend - we walked everywhere, from Sacre Coeur to the Musee D'Orsay. The room was big enough for us all to meet up and share a bottle of bubbly in comfort, although there is no fridge the hotel will let you use theirs. There is a safe in the room but this requires an additional - charged for - key; we didn't bother and didn't have any security issues.
OK so they don't have free WiFi! Many much bigger and more expensive hotels don't either. Personally we can do with out it; there are enough locations with free access for the price of a coffee nearby.
We'd use this hotel again.
