Gem in St GermainPosted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: Brilliant location. Quiet, reasonable sized rooms, very comfortable bed.
Cons: Wifi is a bit erratic, but ok if you just want to do a few basic things.
Location: Only 2 1/2 blocks from the Seine, and you come out opposite the Louvre. Short walk to Musee d'Orsay, Jardin du Luxemburg, and most other attractions.
Lovely hotel in a great location - just a short walk to many Paris attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were very helpful, thoughtful and polite. Our room was on the 4th floor, and extremely quiet, and a reasonable size. The only downside is the lack of elevator, but it really isn't an issue if you are fairly mobile.

A nice overnightPosted Jun 22, 2014
Pros: The hotel is central, the staff was helpful, I was able to print my boarding pass and the in-room amenities were adequate to the need.
Cons: The cobbled-together look is a little disconcerting, but I don't think this could be removed, since it's such an old building.
Location: The outstanding Luxembourg Garden is nearby. So are the l'Ile de la Cite items.
I was in Paris just one night, in transit only. The hotel was convenient to the center of things and had a comfortable bed, so I was good to go. They provided a wake-up call, which was necessary since I did not have an alarm clock.

It is a simple hotel long on charm but no lift located in a great area with a lovely staff. They were really pleasant, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is reasonable but I didn´t take it because of great boulangerie across the street, also Lili´s opposite the hotel has the cheapest coffee in Paris plus US baked good (Lili lived in the US for a spell). Great location

Classic small central Paris HotelPosted Jan 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a great destination for a business trip overnight stay. The room was clean and (very) warm and cosy but as befits a building of this age was also very small. Might be cramped for a couple staying any length of time?Lovely homemade jams at breakfast.

Pros: Quiet, good value, great location, friendly staff. I know only a few words of French but communication in English was no problem.
Cons: There was some confusion at checkout as their records evidently did not show that I had payed in advance; fortunately I had the confirmation email

In the heart of the Latin Quarter.Posted Oct 6, 2013
Pros: Location and a private bath with shower.
Cons: The smell.
Location: The Louver, The Musee d'Orsay & Notre Dame
If you are looking for a deluxe 5 star hotel, keep looking because this place ain't it. This is a classic French hotel. Small, no elevator, narrow staircase and postage stamp rooms. And the place has a certain odor to it, but you get use to it. However, it's blocks from the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay and Notre Dame plus there is a main line Metro station within a reasonable walking distance. It's quaint and charming and on a nice quiet little street with several small bistros and a great bakery, plus a money exchange at the end of the block. The most important thing is it has a private restroom, sure it's only 4 feet wide but it's your own shower, the size of a phone booth by the way. This is a great asset for the location. So, if you are willing to haul your suitcase up and down a flight of stairs, that seem to lean to the north, and are willing to ignore the smell coming from the ventilator shaft, and the only window opening into the ventilator shaft, and no air conditioning, and are planning on spending your days running around Paris and just coming back to sleep at night, then this is the hotel for you. If ever I get back to Paris I will be booking with them again. BTW I had trouble with the phone and the guy at the front desk, a small little stand in the middle of the front hall by the way, was more than happy to help me get through.

Good location, but watch the stairs!Posted Sep 24, 2013
We were allocated the last room on the very top floor.... no elevators!! Upon reaching the room we were horrified at the site... they don't advertise that room on websites! Completely unsatisfactory for what you pay for. We complained to the manger/owner and whilst we had to stay in the room for 1 night, he did accommodate us in a room on the 1st floor for the remainder of our stay. This was a room that is advertised online and so much better. So, watch the stairs and room 49!!

Stay off the street side.Posted Jun 23, 2013
Pros: location and ease of entry, etc.
Location: Perfect, close to Notre Dame, Louvre, D'Orsay, Luxemburg Gardens and lots of great cafe's.
Tired, old place in a great location for walking downtown Paris and the sights. It worked well for us. Noisy on the street side as the angle of the street creates a short cut for cabs all night long.

No Elevator but great locationPosted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Note that there is NO elevator at this property. My room was on the 5th french floor [which is a US 6th floor]. Maneuvering my small pilot suitcase on the winding narrow staircase after a 12 hour flight was awful at best. It also made me never want to return to the hotel even to change my clothes or grab an umbrella. Indeed, I only returned at night, as I couldn't bear scaling for Mount Everest. So I bought another umbrella instead. The owner of the hotel is very unfriendly [and I used to live in the same Paris neighborhood and speak fluent French]. He reminded me of the French circa 1975 with a typical air of superiority; bad karma for an innkeeper. Upon checkout, he insisted he run my credit card saying I hadn't yet paid. Fortunately, I somehow managed to have on me my receipt from Hotels.com which reflected full payment. Not good. That said, the location was superb and the rest of the staff were kind, helpful and friendly.
