My daughter and I spend four nights here last month after I chanced upon it on hotels.com and read the good reviews on Tripadvisor. What a fantastic find! The hotel is in a great location - a few minute's walk to the Louvre, the Pompidou Center, Les Halles, and lots of other points of interest. In fact, we only used one day of our two-day Metro card, because it was so convenient to walk everywhere. The decor is funky and fun. The wallpaper in the halls is unlike any in any hotel I've been in, as is the lobby. Our room was small, and the bed did take up most of the room, but 1) hey, you're in Paris, you shouldn't be spending that much time in your hotel room anyway, and 2) it was the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a long, long time. Seriously recommended!
The men and women who staffed the front desk were extremely helpful whenever we had a question or needed anything. They all speak fluent English, which is nice as well.
We didn't eat the 12 euro breakfast, opting instead to go to the cute little boulangerie/patisserie around the corner for delicious pain au chocolat and a cup of tea for less than half the price.
All in all, a great find. If you like boutique hotels, I would strongly recommend Hotel Crayon!
