I've been coming to Paris for 40 years (I started at 14 years of age) and I've always prized location over comfort when it came to accommodations. I'd rather be in a very good location in a smaller room than a sizeable room in the Montparnasse area on the outskirts of town.
After a transportation strike last visit which limited us to closer touristy destinations, we would return to our postage sized room where the door would literally hit the bed and it all became very claustrophobic. We vowed to only book hotels with sizeable rooms thereafter.
After much research we came across the Hotel Villa d'Estrees. it is in a perfect location - the Latin Quarter very close the St. Germain du Pres. It is close to everything yet down a sleepy alley. It has only 10 rooms yet is not a B&B. it is very much an well manicured hotel. The room is American sized - it isn't huge, but it has a king bed, a sleeper sofa, a chair and a good sized bathroom. For us, size wise it is perfect. The Wi-Fi works perfectly, which is no small feat in France.
The staff has been incredibly helpful. I've wondered how to afford such staff considering it only has 10 rooms, but never mind. They treat you as if you are the only guests.
After staying 4 nights, tonight we were surprised with a very lovely thank you note referencing their entire staff and a nice box of chocolates - and I mean with like 20 chocolates in there. I am so impressed with this place that I will call it home in the future.
Considering its small size I write this review half-heartedly since I'm afraid it will become quite popular in demand, but no matter. It's worthy of praise in every respect.
