I do hate it when you come to check in after 3pm and a room is not available...not the best start...then you are given a room which does not have a key feature from the amenities list that you were looking for ( washer/dryer ) but to take a brief walk around nearby streets you come back and they have sorted the issues with a smile and you are in a fabulous mini suite with Paris style and a hint of luxury, with views over Paris rooftops....great! This boutique hotel (which you can spot from inside the Louvre Napoleon wing) is central to everything, but they have a late check out of 12 and a high occupancy rate...this means you may only have late afternoon access to your room...but what a room...luxury bedding, good towels with heated rack, L'Occitane toiletries, robes, slippers, lit magnifying mirror,scale and a mini kitchen with all the features including coffee pod machine and washer/dryer. Mineral Water provided. If you are in the middle of a long trip, it gives you a chance to avoid eating every meal out and do laundry too! Small fitness room downstairs, good hotel security. Supermarket, restaurants and local public bicycle hires ( which were great ) all around. Easy walk though to many attractions including Les Halles and Marais district and easy bicycle if you are reasonably fit to all the sites. Housekeepers are excellent and even cleaned pigeon droppings from our windows daily! In fact the pigeons were the only negative cooing and scratching on the roof early in the morning, loathe to open the windows fully in case they flew in! Only other minor negatives...could do with few more hangers in wardrobe and a pity you could not adjust the air temp below 18 which I would have liked to do at night.
Overall though a fantastic experience despite the shaky start...hope to visit again!
