My wife and I arrived at the hotel early as we had an overnight flight. We explained this to the Crayon staff and our room was ready and waiting at our check in. All the staff we encountered we're cheerful and helpful and available 24/7. The location is a short walk from the Louvre and the Jardin de Tuilleries as well as a major Metro stop (Chatalet les Halles) which makes getting around convenient. There are also several restaurants close by, I highly recommend Num for food and cocktails (particularly the lychee mojitos), including one which is open 24/7 for the night owls (which saved us 1 night).
The hotel has a funky, unique style, an honour bar in the lobby and is immaculately maintained. The rooms, as are common in Europe, are much smaller than in the U.S. but are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable! I had trouble finding our room at first because I didn't realize that the numbers were written in glowing crayon on the carpet.
All in all a great find that we will return to if ever we are in Paris again!!
