When we decided to return to Paris this year, I did a bit of research on other properties and decided to stay here again. We booked directly on the internet and requested the same room we had two years ago. On returning, we found the hotel and the management to be as charming as ever. The managers, Christian and Daniele, and the assistant manager, Nouri, greeted us like old friends (but without being gushy, this is not California, thank you). The hotel is still spic and span and despite some minor work going on in the lobby, everything ran smoothly. The staff were more than helpful with making reservations for a concert and for dinner, and were always happy to chat when they were not busy with other guests. The other guests, by the way, were rarely in evidence, although the hotel was full. That's an advantage of a ten-room hotel. After staying for six nights, we went to Normandy for a few days and returned for one night before going home. On our last day, we were pleasantly surprised to be placed in the penthouse for the night at no extra charge. That is a truly gorgeous, very large attic room with an unobstructed views up and down the Seine, and it would be a fantastic love nest for honeymooners. My only quibble with the hotel is that the breakfast is overpriced and not spectacular. For 14 euros, I would expect more variety and fresher fruit. However, a just a croissant and a cup of coffee anywhere around would probably set you back half that (Starbucks nearby charges about 2.60 for a small coffee), so the convenience is worth it to us. Plus, you get all you want, and nobody interrogates you whether all those madeleines that disappeared from the basket were eaten on the premises or for snacks later in the day. If you can afford a four-star and like the bustle of the neighborhood, you can't go wrong here.
