This was an absolutely adorable hotel in a perfect location. It was far enough away from the bustle to be quiet, yet close enough to get to places easily.
I had a top floor room overlooking the rooftops of Paris with a bright outlook, made unusual by a bathroom with views as well. It was a little cramped due to the sloping roof, but so charming.
The lift was...well.. typically Parisian. It was cramped and slow, and didn't reach the sixth floor, which necessitated a walk up some steep steps, but to be honest, this was all part of the charm.
I found the staff very friendly and helpful.
Some minor irritations: one bottle opener for the use of the whole hotel was a bit strange, and the charges for laundry were outrageous (I did notice some local launderettes close by for future reference).
Otherwise, a lovely hotel for a lovely city.
