My husband and I spent four nights at this hotel on our first ever trip to Paris. The hotel was two minutes from the nearest metro, (Bastille), which proved an excellent location from which to visit all the sights Paris has to offer. It was also within walking distance of Notre Dame (with a good pair of shoes). There were also plenty of places to eat nearby and a supermarket minutes away for supplies.
The hotel was clean and had all the basics. Our standard double room was very small, which made getting dressed a mission, as we danced around the bed which filled the room. One of the wardrobes had drawers which you couldn't open, as the bed-side table prevented it from opening fully, making them of no use at all. The air conditioning was of little benefit and the room was extremely hot at times. There was one small lift which served all the floors and took you down to breakfast. The continental breakfast was well stocked with something for everyone. However, the uncovered bread and pastries had small flies buzzing around, which was not great. The dining room was small and tables were tightly packed in. However, the man serving the breakfast could show the reception staff a thing or two. He was cheerful and interacted with guests, unlike the reception staff, who could barely crack a smile or pass the time of day. More of a robotic passing over of your room key. If you are not intending to spend a lot of time in your hotel and you are looking for a well positioned, basic and clean hotel, then this is it. We didn't get the option, but perhaps an upgrade to a suite or better room would be better. If you want a bit of luxury and be made to feel welcome and not just another body passing through, then look elsewhere.
