The lobby and the hallways almost scared me off, but the room was clean albeit spartan... the beds had reading lights and the shower and tub though small were just fine. The hotel staff wasn't super helpful - they were innocuous really -but the location was PERFECTION! We were just off the SEINE, a few blocks from Notre Dame and not far from the Muse D'orsay. There were good restaurants and fabulous chocolates on Rue du Seine and it wasn't too noisy except for on Saturday night. The savings were tremendous.
