My wife and I spent a week in February 2014 at Hotel Residence des Arts and highly recommend it. We had two junior suites for ourselves and our daughter, granddaughter, and son-in-law. The furnishings and accomodations were beautiful, comfortable and clean, everything we could ask for. You will enjoy the smallest elevator you have ever seen, though it worked just fine, and added to the charm of the place.
The hotel and its sister hotel, Villa d'Estrees, are located in what I would call an alley by US standards, but that was a good thing - easy walking and no traffic noise. The area is packed with places to eat, from crepes, pizza by the slice, fancy French, and a nearby grocer for wine and snacks for the room. Chocolate, ice cream, and Starbucks nearby too!
Best of all was the location for seeing Paris: Absolutely perfect! Around the corner is Place Saint-Michel, which has several entrances for the Metro for travel within Paris, and also the RER railroad, which one can take to Airport Charles de Gaulle, or Versaille. The Seine, Notre Dame, the Lourve, and Berthillon (best ice cream in Paris?) on Île Saint-Louis, are all within walking distance, even for tired senior citizens.
We highly recommend the Hotel Residence des Arts and hope to return soon!
