Hotel de Varenne was a wonderful place to stay in Paris! Located centrally--just about a block from the Rodin Museum and not far from the Orsay, the Seine, the Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler, and Invalides, but on a nice, quiet street. Very good bakery next door, a grocery store two doors down, a few nice restaurants right on your street, two Metro stations closeby, and two banks with ATMs at the end of the block--we really felt this location couldn't have been more ideal. We walked to the Louvre and Notre Dame as well without difficulty and walked home each night in the dark never feeling unsafe.
We didn't even have a superior room, just standard, and the room was spacious by European standards with a lovely view of the courtyard. Everything was very clean, and the beds were VERY comfortable with wonderful soft duvets. Our bathroom was HUGE for a hotel in Europe and again immaculate with a cradle on the wall for the showerhead. The fridge in the room was very convenient, and free WiFi generally worked very well all week. The hotel staff were very helpful with anything we needed and quite friendly--some of the most patient people we met with our French! We especially enjoyed Carlos with whom we could enjoy speaking Spanish thanks to his Colombian heritage!
While we felt we didn't need the 11 euro breakfast daily with our room, we found that just 8 euros for scrambled eggs, a carafe of hot chocolate and a fresh baguette was a wonderful way to begin a few mornings!
There were so many hotels to choose from in Paris--we were extremely happy with our decision to stay in Hotel de Varenne. We had a very comfortable and affordable stay (189 euro per night) and can't wait to go back! Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a classy, yet comfortable hotel with good service in a fantastic location!
