Incredible location with helpful staff
Posted Aug 23, 2016
For the price we paid, this hotel more than surpassed our expectations. One block from the Rue de Rivoli but the street was extremely quiet at night, and we had a second floor room. The staff was extremely helpful and secured a private taxi for the drive back to CDG at 4am, which was great and worth the extra money. They do ask you to leave your room key at the front desk when going out, but the desk is staffed 24 hours so it's not a big deal. The location is definitely its biggest asset, on a little side street but right in the middle of the 1st arr. and less than fifteen minutes walk from Louvre, Chatelet Station, Les Halles, Pont Neuf, and Notre Dame. The proximity to Chatelet metro station also came in extremely handy. The room was small but clean, decor a bit outdated but otherwise beautiful. The shower is a bit of a hit--or-miss: I'm 5'3 and 190 lbs so it was a bit of a tight squeeze for me and the water was either lava hot or freezing cold, but otherwise a lovely stay. The hotel was a beautiful old thing with lots of character and history, and we loved being there for five days.
