This small friendly hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of many of Paris's 'must see' attractions - the Georges Pompidou Centre, the Louvre and Notre Dame to name a few. There are also plenty of traditional brasseries and international restaurants nearby and some interesting shops.
The hotel reception staff, who seem to change each time you walk past, are without exception charming and helpful.
The room was quirky with rather austere furniture and rather dark wallpaper and curtains. However it had an old fashioned charm and the high ceilings and tall Parisian windows gave it character and grandeur. It has huge windows opening out onto the street below - fascinating for people watching and there are plenty walking past on what is mainly a pedestrianised street. Soundproofing was amazing. Once the window was shut you couldn't hear a thing from outside. The beds are upstairs on a mezzanine which gives a very spacious feel to the accommodation. A few minor grumbles - the bathroom was very clean but the hot water pressure was incredibly low which meant showering or filling the bath was a long process. Towels were thin and rather abrasive in quality! Beds not overly comfortable and only one very thin pillow - good for the neck but not the sleep quality.
Breakfast (an extra) is definitely worth the 9 euros. Mainly self service but the cheery waitress appears on cue to make your freshly squeezed orange juice to order on the remarkable machine. Good coffee, croissants and remarkable selection of pastries, preserves, cold meats, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts etc for such a small dining room. We really enjoyed this hotel and felt it enhanced our experience of Paris as it felt quintessentially French and was situated exactly where we wanted to be. Merci beaucoup!
