we stayed here from 29/03 to 03/04, in room number 5 (top floor), family of 4.
you know those old buildings that have been refurbished on the interior, all new and modern hotel amenities? this isnt one of those. but i don't mean that in a bad way, though some might take it that way. this is the kind of building that has not been renovated, where wiring runs along the surface of the walls, where paint and plaster cover a mess of stuff, and the towels have some other hotel name on them. some might see run-down, some might see character or shabby-chic. it was perfect for us.
we stayed on the top (attic) floor, no elevator. nice big room (especially for paris), trundle beds were pulled out, slept 4 comfortably (hit my head a couple times on the beams, but thats ok). paris had their coldest spring in 30 years, so the extra large soaker tub in the bathroom was a welcome addition for the wife and kids to thoroughly warm up after a long cold day. a few worn area rugs thrown across the floor, a small table, desk, fake wood stove. very clean. technically, you can see a tower of notre dame from the corner of one window.
breakfast was expensive, so we just picked up some stuff at the patisserie a block away on our way out for the day (wow, wish we had those at home...). a note on the desk asked guests not to eat in the room.
now the location. i would challenge you to find a better location for someone staying in paris. 1 block from notre dame and ile-st-louis, very near the bustling bar-filled as well as classier parts of the left bank but on a quiet street, 1 block from st-michel RER stop (direct for both airports and versailles). there is nothing you could want access to that is not nearby and in walking distance (except thankfully, a train station).
we were here over easter weekend; the staff left a couple of chocolate easter eggs from a local patisserie with a happy easter note for the kids, very nice touch and much appreciated.
