My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Pont Royal for 5 nights in September. The room was on the fourth floor, facing Rue Montalembert/Rue du Bac. It was a "normal" size for a Paris hotel room. Not overly large, but comfortable, modern, clean and bright. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the concierge team were great at providing recommendations on places to eat or booking trips like our Parisien Bateux experience. We did get a bit annoyed at the housekeeping staff who continually ignored the "Do not disturb" sign on our door.
After the first couple of noisy evenings/mornings due to street traffic, I asked to be moved to the back of the building but was told the hotel was fully booked. I then found out that the large, double glazed windows in our room had not been properly closed which had been letting in excessive street noise. Once I had sorted this out is was still a bit noisy, but much better than it had been.
The location of the hotel is great for exploring the left bank and is close enough to be a good base for the right bank as well as it's only a few minutes walk to the Pont Royal bridge then onto the Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre. There were sufficient cafes nearby for breakfast and the Monoprix store across the road was super convenient for buying the day to day essentials. We both found the Rive Gauche (Left Bank) to be a more pleasant experience to stay and walk around than the busier right bank as there are fewer grand boulevards with all the associated traffic and people. If/when we visit Paris again, we'll definitely be looking for a hotel on the left bank.
If this hotel is in your price bracket then I'd highly recommend it.
P.S. The bottle of chilled white wine on arrival was an nice touch.
