Only charming from the exterior
Tiny, dark, windowless rooms. We checked out as soon as we checked in - would not recommend this hotel.
Nice Hotel, Friendly People
Surprised by the comments that the front desk staff weren't generally helpful - maybe the visitor was just unlucky with staff availability at the time of their stay.
I stayed at this hotel March/April '04 and on arrival the lady at reception (unprompted) presented me with a map, circling all the best shopping, dining, monuments, etc in the area. The kitchen staff were also really friendly and helpful and the guys who worked reception (one at weekends only) were pleasant, polite and knowledgeable.
I've stayed in a few Paris hotels but never felt so well taken care of as I did at this one.
There's more out there
Excellent location for various sites - Louvre, department stores, metro etc..I would definitely return to the area but I don't think I would return to the hotel. The rooms are small, however they are clean and neat. Front desk service is non-existant as one reviewer stated. Aside from one assistance, Pol, the service was poor and it seemed as if I was bothering them should I ask them a question regarding Paris. Pol was the only one to be of great assistance and often offered more information that was very helpful but he only did the night shifts so one would have to get up early to speak to him, if he was working. I also stayed at another comparable hotel for about the same price and I found their front counter service to be excellent. I would advise others to look around for a comparable hotel if one wants to stay in the Louvre area.
Location is all that is great
The location is excellent but that's all! The service is non-existent.
The rooms and bathrooms are tiny and make sure you know your neighbours because you'll defintely hear them clearly in their bathroom! Rooms are just 3 star standard and the elevator can fit one person and one suitcase at a time which made it a lot of stairs for our family of five! Not worth the price.
Friendly place, great location...
small rooms but nice & clean
Excellent location. Within walking distance of the metro, Louvre, Opera, and shopping. The Opera and Galleries Lafayette are literally right around the corner from the hotel. The family room was way to small to comfortably accommodate a family of 4. We should have reserved 2 separate rooms. However, the staff was extremely friendly. The room was beautiful and the free breakfast was appreciated. I took a chance and booked the hotel soley based on its location, and without prior recommendation. I am so glad that I did. I would love to stay there again (however this time without the kids).
Great neighborhood, nice hotel
We loved the neighborhood, an easy walk to the Louvre, la wealth of shops and restaurants and easy metro access. The hotel was spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpfull, but rooms small as befitting an older hotel. We would certainly stay there again.

The next day (Sunday) Alice and I woke up around 1pm, which isn't that bad, since we got back around 6:30am. We took our time getting ready and left to go meet her brother at the Eiffel Tower. But first, we got crÍpes on the way (of course) because you know, we’re in France!! My crÍpe was really good because I got Nutella in mine, Mmm… After getting our breakfast we walked to the Eiffel Tower where we found her brother. We relaxed in the park in ...
... Latin quarter to Notre Dame. The place were Paris started. Burried in the beautiful block street is a gold disk that many believe if you touch it will bring good luck. Of course we touched it!
We topped off the night with gelato and the boys ate crepes filled with Nutella and bananas. More walking and catching the metro. We reaches our hotel at 10:30 pm...so happy to be here. A good day in Paris. Bonnie unit! (Good night)

... was waiting in the bus line (long) for the next transfer to Giverny, when the next bus stopped beside Roger. Or so he believes he was the chosen one. So while his head swelled with his bus magnetism, he then bumped it getting into the seat. This has numbed Rogers anxiety now about long queues. However, we arrived at giverny, 20 minutes away, and walked in.
... like feeding frenzy of sorts. And I swear I saw a French woman or three flash angry shark's tooth at us when we dared finger an item that was in their sights! All items were marked at generous discounts, between 40-50% off generally. But the crowds, and the confusion, and the conversion rate of the US dollar to the Euro sent us home, tails between our legs, dogs without bones. Let's face it. I'm a terrible shopper. I love to HAVE; I just hate to shop. Getting ...
Sally entertained us in true French style, with fresh bread, croissants, homemade jam for breakfast along with Neil's special granola. Lunch was a wonderful spread of cheeses and pates along with bread and salad and followed by two lovely dinners. They have a large garden where they grow most of their own fruit and vegetables.
It was nice to catch up with Sally after so many years (Judy used to baby sit her daughter, Elizabeth, when we lived ...
