I stayed in this hotel for three nights in early January. We had a triple room for me and two teenage daughters. The room was small, typical for hotels in central Paris, but there was enough room for our carry-on bags and backpacks. The room was clean. Windows had good soundproofing, but the hotel is situated on a quiet street half a block from a major avenue de Republique. There are two Metro stations within a 5 min walk from the hotel, and most major attractions can be reached within 10-20 minutes. Glad I did not choose a hotel in the Latin quarter, which was my second closest ( and more expensive) choice - that area is very loud, touristy and filled with cheap, poor quality restaurants. The time spent on Metro can become somewhat long, especially if you are trying to take a break from sightseeing in the afternoon. The front desk staff was always courteous, friendly and everyone spoke excellent English. Breakfast was available and looked OK - but my girls wanted to eat crepes every morning, and we found a small
hole-in-the-wall boulangerie a few blocks away where they ate 3 days in the row. No reservations about staying at this hotel again - just realize this is a 3 star property in the heart of Paris - don't expect the amenities you would associate with similarly rated US hotels. It's basic, clean, convenient and delivers what it promises - good rest at night after a busy day of sightseeing. If you need a more luxurious property, I would look near the Champs Elysees or Opera area and expect to pay 2-3 times more. That will get you closer to the major tourist sites and luxury shopping and cut down on the time spent on Metro.
