I and a number of my friends just spent a long week-end at the Hotel Mazarin. The staff was very friendly and helpful...the whole vibe of the place is laid back and local. We loved the complimentary (and excellent) breakfast buffet and the courtyard where we ate it. Also liked the bar (especially the outside tables) and the complimentary beverages we were offered. Rooms were faultless (nice fancy bathrooms) and reasonably priced , though my friends tell me that (due to street noise), one should request a quiet inward-facing room. I would definitely stay there again.
