My partner and I spent four nights here in February, staying in a double room on the fifth floor.
The hotel's location is great. It is inbetween Sacre Coeur and the sights of the Seine with the opera district a mere 10 minute walk away. The street itself is quiet, avoiding hustle, bustle and traffic noise. Gare St Lazare, a large train station, is a short walk away.
The room was more than adequate with a comfortable bed, AC, wall-mounted modern television, desk and a small balcony with table and chairs. The ensuite had both bath and shower. Hot water was plentiful and the heating kept the room nice and warm. My only real gripes were the lack of a kettle and noise from other rooms. The latter did wake us more than once as the walls are seemingly thin. This is an old Parisienne building, however, so I'm not sure what could feasibly be done to combat this.
The building's decor is pleasant and modern, top floors can be reached by lift or stairs. Reception has a small bar off it and outside is a small courtyard with seating, whilst we didn't use either both looked charming.
Breakfast is served in the basement. You help yourself to cereals, cheeses, breads, pastries and hot drinks. No hot food is served. Whilst slightly repetitive, we found the breakfast more than ample and have certainly had far worse elsewhere on the continent!
A final note on the staff who really do let the place down. It is a lovely hotel, well placed, small, cosy and comfortable. Whilst the staff are not outwardly rude, they are dismissive and disinterested, aiming to fulfil only the basics of their job description.
