We would stay here again in a heartbeat. 1/2 block from the Metro, 1/2 block from a pastry shop, 1 block from the Seine, 3 blocks from Notre Dame and a short walk to the Louvre. Incredible!
Only two problems (but not enough to knock it down a star): We booked a year in advance and wanted two rooms with balconies. Apparently they only have five rooms with balconies and they put one couple on the 2nd floor and the other on the 5th (even though we booked early enough that they could have put us on the same floor). One couple got a much better view even though the rate was the same. It did cause a little friction.
Also, they quoted us a price for Museum passes and it was the same as the retail price (i.e., no service charge). However, when we got our bill, they charged us 12 euros more for each pass. Resolution: both couples decided not to contest because the same guy who quoted the wrong price saved us a ton of money by telling us to buy individual metro passes rather than the Visite Pass. It was more than a wash.
Neither of these issues are as much a complaint as a short memo to management to consider these issues in the future.
We stayed 3 weeks in France and Italy and every hotel we chose (a total of 13) had a high recommendation on Trip Advisor. We batted 1.000 (well, except for the farm house with bed bugs in the other couple's room. Ha!)
