I have had two extended stays at this property during 2012 while I was in Paris---2 1/2 weeks in July and 2 weeks in October and can recommend a stay without hesitation.
Convenience---a few steps from St. Michael's Fountain, the hotel gives you quick access to the Metro, St. Germain Blvd, St. Michael Blvd, Saint Chapelle and Notre Dame. I had to criss cross the city for meetings and could easily do so by taking Line 4 to Line 1 that will take you to La Defense across to Bastille. There is a little shop next door that has a good selection of fruit, water, etc-closed on Mondays. A pharmacy close by on on Rue St Andres De Arts that is open 7 days a week. Several restaurants nearby if you are too tired to venture far away and a limited room service menu.
Charm---you couldn't ask for a more charming staff. They really make you feel welcomed, always smiling and cheerful. Were always willing to help me with my plans and were quick to respond if I was in need of something. They are a huge asset for this hotel and are the reason my stay was so pleasant. I didn't feel like I was staying at a hotel, more like a cozy home. There is a wonderful roof top bar with an impressive, open air view of Paris.
Comfort---rooms can vary in size and convenience but my two rooms always had a little balcony overlooking the street which was nice to sit out on (for more $ you can have one with a view of the Eiffel Tower), a desk and a reasonably sized bathroom. Most importantly the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were always kept very clean. In July there was a little problem with restocking the room supplies...frequently something seemed to be missing and I had to ask for it...but that was not the case in October. Even in July this was just a minor annoyance and remedied as soon as I asked for it.
