We spent two nights in this hotel. It's definitely a two star hotel. In fairness everything was clean and tidy, and the breakfast was nice. The location and view of the Place are excellent. Our room was on the top floor. It was small, although not as small as many Paris hotels. The hotel has an amazing setting, and could be fantastic with some work. If you like the dated 70's look thid is the place for you! The owner himself seems to be around all the time, and expouses a certain 'business like' approach, which I found unsettling.
I was willing to give the place a chance as my wife wanted to stay there. I couldnt really have any major faults regarding the hotel itself. Everything was clean. And once you know you will be staying in a basic hotel you wont be disappointed, even if the prices charged are anything but 2 star rates. The one major fault I would have is noise. It's situated on the Place, which is unbearably noisey at night. The rooms are not air conditioned and since both nights were warm we had to open the windows. I must add that I knew it might be noisey, but I really hadnt thought it would be this bad. Two nights in Soho or Leicester Square would have allowed me to enjoy more sleep.
All in all I would'nt return. The hotel is fine, I could'nt fault its two star rating. Location is great on the one hand but an absolute nightmare for those of you attached to your sleep.
