The two major features of the hotel are definetely the location and the staff. It´s really close to many tourist attractions, and if you´re a person who likes to walk, you can do almost everything by walking. Maybe the only three places you would have to take the subway (wich is really close, by the way) are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Montmartre. All other major attractions (Louvre, Notre Dame, Centre Pompidou, Jardin des Tulleries, Jardin du Luxembourg, Saint German des Prés....) are walking distances (remember, just if you, like me, like to take walks). Around the hotel there is a lot of great bistrôs, cafés and small supermarkets.
The service is great, and all the gentleman of the front staff are really nice (specially Francois, who stays at night, and can teach you some French words, if you like!), polite, and have great tips for you, in English, if you need. Since we had a 7 night stay, we received a complimentary bottle of champagne as we arrived, wich was a very nice touch. Also during our stay was the 1st birthday of the hotel, and to celebrate they were offering complimentary glasses of champagne, again a nice touch.
Like all other reviews say, the room is, in fact, really small. But, come on, who wants to stay in a hotel room when in Paris? We stayed in a room facing the street, but still weren´t bored by any noise. Oh, the bathroom is really cool, the shower are full of little LED lights.
The only downside of the hotel is the breakfast. Since it´s not included, you can have a self service breakfast at the lobby, but we thought the charge was expensive for not a very extense selection of pastry and other things. It´s much better to go to one of the many cafés nearby.
In general, an excellent choice for Paris.
