The hotel is well placed just by the River Seine but can be missed if you are driving by as it is set back behind the Highland Pub. Parking wasn't an issue as there is plenty of street parking and public car parks at the rear of the hotel (free from 7pm to 9am and then 1 Euro an hour). The lumiere show at the Cathedral at 10.30 meant that car parking spaces fill up at about 6.30 for the evening visitors. Upper floor rooms at the rear of the hotel have views towards to Cathedral and they are furnished simply, although a little tatty around the edges (chipped paint, older built in wardrobes and worn looking hard flooring) it really does the job for a short stay. The beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and the bathroom spacious enough (unlike the one man and his suitcase sized lift!). The cold breakfast buffet meant that you could fill up for your day with the standard range of fayre (baguettes, pastries, cereal, tea, coffee, fruit juice) and the dining area is bright and cheerfully decorated with enough seating (if you don't mind sharing a 4 seater with other guests). There isn't tea/coffee in the rooms however there is a kettle in reception near to the free wi-fi computer. The packed lunch is a simple affair with limited choice but worth asking for (as you've paid for it) and will tide you over during the daytime if you aren't too concerned with having prepacked sandwiches and crisps. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
