Well located in St Germain, just far enough away from the madding crowds while being close enough to anything of interest. Paris is one of the world's best walking cities and this is an ideal base to take in the sights and sample some great food. It has a sense of history and you feel the staff take pride in working there - we found the concierge service to be particularly helpful. The rooms are quite small but well appointed and decorated - our (superior) room came with a decent view that included the top third of the Eiffel Tower which felt like a bit of a bonus.
For a small 5* property you can get some good deals to stay here but, as others have noted, once you do arrive some things are eye-wateringly expensive. Not least the bar which is probably why it remained stubbornly quiet while we were there. We did sample some of their cocktails which were admittedly well made but at north of 20 Euros a go they should be. We also ate at the attached Joel Robuchon restaurant one night (advanced pre-booking required) and while the food was everything you would expect from a 2 Michelin Star establishment, the bill for 2 people can easily sail towards 500 Euros if you try a few dishes and take some recommended wine pairings...
Thankfully the locale means there are plenty of more wallet friendly options within a 10 minute stroll and I would happily recommend La Fregate for lunch (with a great view of the river and Louvre), and either 'Le Christine' or 'Alcazar' for great meal in the evening. The latter is quite a funky place with a great bar upstairs offering imaginative cocktails at much more reasonable prices.
We certainly enjoyed our stay and as fairly frequent visitors to Paris will probably return one day. We've tended to stay on the other side of the river and walked across to St Germain of an evening. The Hotel Lotti probably remains our first choice for value and luxury in Paris but the Pont Royal is certainly up there.
