We split up our stay in Paris, so we spent two nights in this wonderful hotel, left Paris and returned for three more nights. Our room for the first two nights was on the first floor and front corner of the building. The room was small but decorated to the nines. Luckily, the bathroom was huge (for Europe) with a separate area for the toilet. There was a nice window with a flower box outside full of geraniums. The bath was a combo tub/shower. There was a hair dryer with handy 110v outlets, a swing out mirror, and a towel warmer. The towels were huge. The bedroom was clean, neat, and tight but it worked. We booked a room on the fifth floor for our return because they are a bit nicer and have balconies, with only a small bump in price. And, it was well worth it. Basically, you are on the roof so one of the walls was slanted, with heavy beams showing. Just like the other room, the walls are covered with a padded fabric. Very decorated. There was a coffee/tea tray with every thing needed for both, plus the cups and saucers were real china. Nice touch. The bathroom was big, but had a sloped ceiling with a skylight that took some getting use to. The shower only was nice but tight. Lots of counter space, and they put a single red rose on the counter. There was a small refrigerator under the counter too, stocked with various items and drinks. Both rooms were clean, quiet and neat as a pin. The hotel has a charming lobby, with a small bar space where you can sit and enjoy drinks or coffee. The elevator is tiny. Breakfast is offered, but we ate out. A beautiful circular staircase runs through the building. The staff were very helpful and nice, and spoke varying degrees of English. The river is only two blocks away and Notre Dame is about a 10 minute walk. Restaurants and Metro stops are all around the hotel. The location was perfect. The building across the street is still under renovation but it did not bother us at all. No parking is provided. Delicious candies on the front desk. They will hold your bags if you get there before check-in. We had no complaints, only praises for this hotel. Would definitely stay there again!
