Small hotel close to the Louvre
Posted Apr 11, 2016
This hotel is in a good spot, located between Opera and the Louvre (slightly closer to the latter) and a couple of minutes away from Pyramides metro station. It is on a side street away from the main road which minimises traffic noise, and there are cafes and coffee shops within short walking distance if you don't want to pay for the hotel's breakfast. The building itself is compact, as is the lobby (which also doubles as the breakfast room and is not much larger than a front room), the lift (four people maximum, but more than two would be uncomfortable) and the rooms themselves. Our room was comfortable and clean but space was a bit lacking (which I guess is going to be an issue anywhere this close to the centre of things). It also got a bit warm and stuffy at times and the air conditioning didn't have any noticeable effect so we had to open the windows for a while before going to bed to take the temperature down a little. (To be fair, it wasn't unbearable and we didn't complain about this to staff.) We only ever saw the on-duty receptionist (presumably other staff were around), but they were all friendly and spoke good English. We'd use this hotel again if we came back to Paris.
