This is a very charming, quaint, very French hotel in a decent, convenient location. It's got restaurants closeby and is good for exploring Montmartre, which is a great area. But, otherwise, you pretty much need a subway or two to get anywhere. The Saint-Lazare station is good and closeby but you have to go deep underground, walk quite a lot inside the station and change at least once to get places. It is not half as conveinient as staying in the Latin Quarter, which is close to the museums, Notre Dame, the main gardens etc.
As for the rooms, they were small (what do you expect in Paris) but had a good-sized armoire. The rooms were very charming as well. But, here's the downside. I was sleeping in my room and I woke up early in the morning to realize I couldn't turn the heat on because the hotel had not turned the heat on, claiming it was summer (it was September and in the 50's at night). In the morning, we woke up and begged the owner to turn the heat on, which he did after protesting that it was so warm outside. Who the hell are they to decide what's a comfortable temperature for me or for anyone else? They did not leave the heat on consistently and we had to ask for it repeatedly. Only the owner could turn the heat on and the guys at the front desk at night (typically when it got cold) had little clue about what we were asking for. Despite all the lovely charm of this quaint hotel, I did not have a good experience there.
