We whittled down our list to a couple of Rick Steves' choices, but the positive tripadvisor reviews put Hotel du Champ de Mars to the top position. What a winner! I had stayed in the rue Cler neighborhood years ago and it was a real pleasure to return to this lovely, cozy area, full of mom-n-pop fromageries, boulangeries, charcuteries, patisseries, and just a few steps from the L'Ecole Militaire metro stop. You also have your own full-service post office around the corner, and goodness knows, there are two ATMs on every block. We arrived from our transatlantic flight too early in the morning to check into our room, so the mgmt allowed us to hold our luggage (right there in the precious lobby,) while we started our city wandering. Upon our return several hours later, not only was the room ready but our bags had already been moved to it for us! We had a totally cozy and comfortable gem of a room on the ground floor with a private postage-stamp sized courtyard, it was perfect. Excellent wi fi reception, which was critical for uploading each day's photos at each day's end. Arguably, the best water pressure either of us had ever received in a hotel shower, that's for sure. CNN is the only English-language tv channel, but we only had it on in the background at night so that was a very minor minus, indeed. There is breakfast served in a downstairs dining room but for an extra 8EUR pp, so we passed and easily made our daily choices for much less at a few of "our" bakeries and cafes on our walks btwn the hotel and the metro stop around the corner, no problem. Next trip to Paris, I wouldn't hesitate at all to stay here again. The owners were very personable and helpful and took an interest in our every comfort and enjoyment, of both their inn and their city.
