We had called before and asked if the room was available att 11 AM and they said yes. When we arrived they said we could not have the room until at least an hour later and if we still wanted it we would have to pay for an extra day! Would have totally accepted if it was not ready and they had told us so, but to try to charge one extra day when it was ready anyway? Very rude and unfriendly.
In the evening we wanted to use the WIFI which they charged 2€ per 15 minutes (!) for but got the answer that they didn't have any passwords until the morning! Was really rude about this as well. Could not work in the evening as planned.
Rooms like an 80's throwback, brown and dark. Would never stay at again.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights during Easter of 2006. The inlaws room was smaller than ours, and slightly darker, and noisier as it faced the roam, but still very nice and quite quiet too.
Our room was very spacious, which isn't really something you can bank on in Paris so we were very pleasantly surprised. The bathroom was perhaps in need of a slight renovation, but it was pretty big (wth a bathtub) and clean. It had a big window facing a small yard so it was light and nice in there too. (Yes, there were curtains, of course.)

The room was clean and comfortable, with a nice bed, a safe, a desk and a chair - plus great curtains (two layers) that really shut out all the light and a lot of the sounds that managed to pry its way into the small yard to which the room faced (which wasn't a lot to begin with).
For a Paris hotel - these rooms are absolutely amazing, at the price you get them!

The breakfast was rich and nice, with lots to choose from.
The staff were very accomodating throughout the entire hotel.

There are a few small shops and diners just around the corner from the hotel, and it's not very far to the city centre either. (But we recommend taking a cab - if not only for the fun experience of it, because it's really worth the money to see the driver maneuver the car into the smallest openings. Paris traffic is really something else. :))

We'd love to stay at this hotel again, when we go back to Paris.
