Very nice overall. Small room by American standards, but hey, get used to it, you're in Paris! Bed very very comfortable. Staff lovely. Continental breakfast repetitive but nice; exact same thing every day. Since I stayed 10 days, breakfast started to get boring, but it was included, thanks to Expedia. Very close to 2 metro stations. Very walkable to Montmartre. Lively till 1:00-2:00 am. Safe. If you walk up the 200 steps to Place du Tertre, you'll feel safe walking back to the hotel. Place Du Tertre is where artists gather to sketch your portrait. Be careful because gypsies gather to distract you and pick your pocket. Do not stop to talk to them, no matter how needy they seem. Police is very well present but in civilian clothes, so you don't see them but you'll know they're there if something happens. No reason to worry but watch your belongings. Do not stop to sign petitions; they pretend to be deaf and mute, gathering signatures. One more important thing: DO NOT USE THE ROOM PHONE TO MAKE EVEN LOCAL CALLS. They charged me 90€ for this the last day. You'd think local calls are free. If you'd like to see the neighborhood, go to maps.google.com punch in the address and go to "Street View" it's all there, turn by turn. Overall it was truly magnificent to be in this neighborhood. J'aime Paris!
