This hotel is located on a quiet street a few blocks away from the Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower in one direction and the Arc de Triomphe in the other. Metro stations within easy walking distance.
This is a tiny hotel. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are very small. A shower, toilet and sink are crammed into an impressively small space. The bathroom door couldn't open all the way because it hit the foot of the bed. If you have a lot of suitcases, you'll probably feel cramped. This isn't the place to stay if you plan to spend a lot of time in the room.
However, as a base of operations to see the city, it's perfect. There aren't many other places of this quality that will cost less. The rooms and the hotel in general were clean, the elevator was slow and creaky but it got the job done. Narrow corridors, but what more do you need. A nice spacious, brightly lit lobby with a helpful staff that tolerated my ancient French and spoke English when we needed it. A small sitting area in the lobby where we sat in the evening to play cards before dinner.
Several brasseries and restaurants within a few blocks (although many of them were closed on the weekends). Our favorite was Brasserie Boissiere, just one block away. We became friendly with the owner and went back there several times during our five-day stay. Our room faced the courtyard, so it was mostly quiet except for one night when a neighbor had a TV or radio playing all night long. The bed was a good solid double with duvet. There was a small garment cabinet, a flat-screen TV with plenty of channels suspended above it. Free and reliable Wi-Fi.
This is a hotel we would definitely return to on future trips to Paris. It's a great find.
