Quaint hotel in a non-touristy area of Paris. I would recommend only if you are coming for a weekend or if you are travellng solo. We booked a classic room and it is very small. I understand this is Paris and you should expect small rooms but this was really small. We have stayed in some really small rooms in New York and this was by far the smallest room we have stayed in. That being said it is very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable and the rain shower was nice (although you could only move in it enough to shampoo).
The location was ok, but needed a bit of time and at least 1 change of trains to get into the main area of Paris. The neighborhood seemed safe and had some good restaurants in the vicinity. Service was ok, everyone seemed friendly.
Again, I would only recommend if you are traveling solo, only spending a day or two, you pack light or you really love the person you are traveling with.
