My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in March 2012. The room was large enough that we did not feel crowded. It was very well equipped with a table and wall-mounted lights on each side of the bed, a desk and chair, another small chair, a small refrigerator and safe hidden away in a cabinet, a Bose speaker for an Ipod, a TV (that we never used), a phone, and a small but adequate closet. The bathroom was very nice also. The only negative for some people was that there was no shower, but it had a hand-held spray in the tub. Some water would get on the floor but the floor was tile, so it was no problem. The windows opened up on the small courtyard. There was a little street noise with the windows open but it was completely quiet with the windows closed. The fixtures and windows were modern and very nice. The room was very clean. The staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was limited but adequate. The courtyard is nice for breakfast or relaxing. The location is great; it is on a quiet side street close to the metro station and an easy walk to the d'Orsay museum, the Rodin museum, the Eiffel tower, restaurants, and other attractions. There is a small grocery store across the street. The highly rated Auguste restaurant is 1/2 block away but I recommend not going there. It is extremely expensive and our meal there was OK but not special. You can eat al least four equally good meals somewhere else for the price. We would definitely stay at the Varenne again.
