Stayed here 2 nights on a fall weekend. The hotel was exactly what I needed it to be -- a convenient base for exploring the city on foot and Metro. Short walks to Notre Dame and Luxembourg gardens, among other things. The immediate neighborhood near the Sorbonne has a few restaurants that are quieter than the very crowded and touristy neighborhood just a few minutes walk north by the Seine. There's a cinema next door and another nearby, in case that interests you! Metro connections are good here, with Cluny-La Sorbonne just a block away and connected via tunnel to the couple-blocks further Saint-Michiel. When it's rainy those tunnels can be handy!
The room was small but comfortable and clean, with a smallish queen bed, two sitting chairs, desk, bathroom, wifi, and three skinny windows overlooking the street. Lots of velvety pillows and soft wallcoverings. The hotel staff was fine, friendly, neither too passive nor too chatty (I'm not sure what staff problems other reviewers are talking about!). The breakfast buffet was not worth the cost IMO, so I bought pain chocolat down the street the second morning!
We drove here, and I must say parking is inconvenient and expensive (always true in Paris I think). The hotel has nowhere to park momentarily to check in and unload; it's on a one-way one-lane road with no extra space. When we checked out, however, I simply parked the car in the middle of the road for 5 minutes while we grabbed the bags and loaded it up, and it was no problem. I parked underground several blocks away at "Parking Maubert Collège des Bernardins" which was 26 Euro per day - cheaper than a couple of closer lots.
