For our Paris hotel, we were looking for a beautiful hotel in a nice area, and not crazy expensive (under $400US per night). We found one that fit our needs very nicely in Hotel Ares.
We arrived and the desk/reception person opened the door to greet us as our car pulled up. (So, no doorman, but that was OK with us.) The check-in process was easy, and we took the elevator to our 2nd floor room. We found out that the current owner totally gutted and renovated the property six years ago, and he spared no expense doing this. Our ("standard") room was beautifully appointed, and probably average size for a Paris hotel. The closet and drawer space was a tad on the small size, but adequate for us. Not much space to put our suitcases, which then cramped our room a little. The fully tiled and marble bath was drop-dead gorgeous, and included Hermes soap and shower products. Unfortunately, there was really no place to put all our toiletries and dopp kit (small issue). The room had a French Terrace overlooking a courtyard and streetview which was nice. Nicer would have been a view of the Eiffle Tower, however, we were told that was available only from the rooms on the top floor or two (suites, I think).
The neighborhood was terrific, quiet side street, but a block or two from a nice thoroughfare, plenty of good restaurants and shops, and the Metro.
The staff was friendly and efficient and helpful, and the housekeeping staff was very good.
We highly recommend this hotel, and would likely stay there again if/when we revisit Paris.
