Reviewed March 31, 2014

The location is perfect- can easily walk all over Paris and the hotel is right in front of the metro. The view of Notre Dame was amazing..

The rooms are a little quirky but beautifully designed. We only had two issues, the first being the bathroom, which was not practical in any way and the second being the quality of the pillows. But the hotels charm and other positive aspects made those faults easy to overlook.

We really enjoyed our recent 2 night stay here. The hotel offered everything we look for and had nearly none of the drawbacks we try and avoid. The location is indeed fantastic in our opinion. It is close to several main metro and RER lines with very handy direct links when arriving/departing from Gare du Nord or Charles de Gaulle in any case. Its on the Seine and walking distance to the Marais, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Pont Neuf, Luxembourg Gardens and many other sights of interest. And it of course borders the Latin Quarter and is directly across Notre Dame Cathedral.

And with a correct choice of room (we had 51) you can beautiful day and night time views of Notre Dame and the Seine. You can lie in bed and gaze out the window falling asleep to the lovely lit cathedral and wake up to see it in the light morning mist.

The hotel decor, the bar/breakfast area, stairwells and rooms have a colorful quirky design which we found to be very cool. And from the breakfast room you also have a great view of the cathedral.

Further, the staff was very friendly, the free wifi with access for all your devices worked very well. The shower had good water pressure and good hot water. The breakfast at €10 is reasonable for Parisian with a baguette, croissant and chocolate croissant all of good quality and of course a hot beverage. Yes, walking around we did see some cafes with signs offering this kind of French breakfast for €5 or €5.50 but €10 is a good price for a hotel and many nice cafes will offer that price or more. And you've got the quirky yet comfortable breakfast area and again view of the cathedral as you enjoy breakfast.

So in the interest of full disclosure here are some points that some people may bother some people. The hotel is on a very busy corner in terms of traffic and cafes. Even with insulated windows the traffic noise can penetrate into the room and we were on the 5th floor. It doesn't disturb us being urban rats but it might worry some people. Second, at some times of day the shower temperature can be a bit inconsistent and then requires adjustment as you shower. Something like that doesn't diminish our pleasure but some could mutter and moan. Oh, the shower has that traditional French glass shower panel that only extends about 1/3 the way away from the wall with the shower head on it. I have never figured out why the French do it that way but it seems to be pretty common in our experience over the years. Of course on the other hand I also don't understand the people who freak out when the bathroom floor gets a bit wet from such a shower setup. And finally because they offer 24 beverage service there is no mini bar or fridge in the room.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Seine and Notre Dame. We had 51 and loved it.

The hotel is beautifully located and the view of the Seine and Notre Dame from our room was great. Staff was friendly and were kind to help in English when I asked (my French is too bad unfortunately). Metro stations are also close and easily reachable. Rooms are small, but not cramped.The nice, warm decoration of the room it looks great. Would not hesitate to stay again during a future visit!

Room Tip: Rooms with view on Seine/Notre Dame are recommended

I traveller with my spouse, and we both liked the location. You can hop to metro and RER B (straight to airport) just across the street at St.Michael Notre Dame -station. Also the tourist tour busses stops near. Or you can start to explore the city by walking a side of Seine.
What comes to restaurants, you won't starve. Nearest is in the first floor of the hotel building. Around the corner you will find fast food, crepes, kebap, greek food, ice cream etc.
In Latin Quarter (near) you will find great variety of "real" restaurants.
Marais -area is near, you can walk to Louvre and so on. As I said, location is the best value of this hotel.

What comes to hotel it self; rooms were tiny, but that was part of the charm. You are not able to do your morning routines in bathroom at same time with your companion because the lack of the space. And In our room the only mirror was in the bathroom, so there was a waiting when he was shaving and so on. The athmosphere was intime, and I found the decoration interesting.
Breakfast was same every morning - coffee, croissants and juice (which I loved). Staff was friendly and helpful.

In my opinion, the price is a bit high if I'm taking consider only the hotel and it's amenities. The best value what I get was the location.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, take ear pluggs with you. There is a traffic, tourist etc also at night.

Only stayed 1 night while on a business trip and picked the hotel purely because of it's location to the Saint-Michel Notre-Dame RER station. What a piece of luck. The hotel was excellently, if not a little quirky, decorated. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. There is free wifi too. Everything I needed for my trip. A true find, where I will aim to stay on all future trips to Paris.

Stayed 3 nights. Took the train from Paris CDG to Notre Dame - climbed up the steps at the station and there it was - right across the road. Excellent location. We were in room 43 - great views of Notre Dame and the Seine. Room had a walk-in shower as requested. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Although there's no tea/coffee making facilities there is a 24 hour bar. Very comfortable bed - traffic noise was not a problem for us - had the best nights sleep we've had for a long time. Most of the main attractions are in walking distance. We walked to the Eiffel Tower (3-4 miles) then to Sacre Couer (another 3-4 miles) then back to Notre Dame in one day - stopping for lunch at the Grand Palais Rotunde Alexandre III (recommended). A very enjoyable and relaxing stay in a perfect base. PS Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast too - freshly squeezed orange juice, croissant, pain du chocolat, bread, fresh coffee, selection of jams.
