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.

... to enjoy a wine, some food and each other's company. At the end of the cruise the lights came on on the Eiffel Tower so Amy was able to get some shots of the tower all lit up, even though it was still twilight it did look very impressive. It was then time to be driven over to the Moulin Rouge. This show is outstanding and an absolute highlight of our stay in Paris. The entertainment, costumes (or lack of in some cases, ooh la la!) and the seats we had were excellent. ...
... intricate stained glass windows, enormous domed roof and beautifully carved angels. We took the opportunity to light a little candle in memory of mum and Gran. The view from outside the basilica was impressive although the Eiffel Tower was obscured by trees. We wandered north, down more steps and headed in the direction of the Marche aux Puces ( Flea markets) at Porte de Clignancourt. The first section we stumbled across was the "new" ...
Today we made the journey out to Chateau Versailles. To be honest, I was going into the day completely blind as I had not looked at photos in advance or refreshed my memory with any French history. The palace was huge and each room's walls and ceiling were decorated so intricately. There were massive paintings on several walls and ceilings as well.
From the Chateau we moved into the gardens. Because ...
... took the lift to the 56th floor of the Montparnasse Tower to have breakfast at the Ceil de Paris restaurant overlooking the city of Paris. What a view! And so it should be for a breakfast of just croissants, coffee and fruit juice for the price of 15€ (about AUS$22). It's a "one off" and we don't plan to do it on a regular basis!
From here we took the metro to Notre Dame Cathedral (which ...
... the rich lived, and how the rich were detained until the famous public decapitation. I was taken aback by the spacious cell Ms. Antoinette supposedly suffered in, and by the extravagance of her palace. It's no wonder the papers deliberately posted the fictitious "Let them Eat Cake" quote, leading Marie to a dismal and tragic demise.
I found with my second trip to Paris, I loved it more. Not only did I discover more about this remarkable city and its history, and buy a ...
