Just completed a five night stay and really enjoyed our visit. The service level of the kind and English-fluent staff was very high. The room sizes are what one should expect for a quaint, boutique hotel but we found ours very relaxing and enjoyable. We like to walk as much as possible when visiting another city and the hotel is conveniently located nearby Notre Dame and the Louvre. My wife the nearby stores, too.
This was our first stay here and chose this hotel over several other that had been recommended to us. The room prices are in line with other nearby hotels so I'm really glad we ended up staying here. Only tips for future first timers would be to think twice before indulging in the breakfast buffet everyday. We made the mistake of thinking the buffet comes with the room. It does not. The buffet is definitely enjoyable but at €25 (€30 if you get the eggs) come hungry. If you are only seeking a croissant or two or perhaps some cereal or yogurt, then i'd recommend going elsewhere. Also, a bit of a bummer was that if you want a bottled water, expect to pay €6 (or at least that was what the water cost in the fitness room, I assume the room as well). There are a couple nearby market where you can stock up on water or other snacks if so desired.
Speaking of fitness room, most boutique hotels at which I have stayed do not have one or direct you to a nearby fitness center whe the hotel may have a relationship. I was pleasantly surprised by the fitness area and was able to get in a good workout.
All in all, we would stay here again as the high quality service, friendly staff and nice location make this a nice home away from home.
