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.

Ben and Sean's adventure in Lothlorien (read: a convention centre):
After a quick breakfast, we broke off from the Vanessa and Alex posse to go and see The Art of the Brick - a touring exhibition of Lego art devised by "master builder" Nathan Sawaya.
We hopped on the Metro out to one of Paris' convention centres which housed the exhibit. There were no indications as to where exactly we were to go so we wandered around the area a bit. The grounds ...
... there and it’s not all about the red light district and the cannabis cafes. You can just imagine my aunts looking through my photo album. "There’s the art gallery, the Louvre, the palace and oh, there’s the red light district in Amsterdam."
For once I managed to get a good night’s sleep and shock of all shocks; I was up at 7.30am. Got a hot shower and a breakfast too! I’m really sad about ...
... the final leg of the journey. This bus was packed to the rafters, with standing room only for much of the time, but near the end of our route a French woman boarded the bus with a cute little dog in her oversized purse. It was definitely a "Kodak-moment", but I was a little surprised when she agreed to my request for a snapshot. You simply never know what you'll encounter on a Paris bus, but that's what makes it so fascinating!
... got up her nerve to go ask if she could play with them. They did not speak English and Rhea did very well communicating with them. She played marbles with the 2 little girls. We walked around the gardens, but it was now 7:00 and the pony rides and playground were closed. For dinner we took the train to the "Jewish district" and found one of the falafel restaurants that I had noted online. Then home to watch Les Miserables.
Today the girls did a cooking class, starting with visit to the market to buy the produce. Eric was the chef, we cooked Pumpkin Soup with cream, mushrooms and chives, Char with béchamel sauce, Sweet potatoes, Honey glazed Pork Filet mignon and Chocolate fondant cake with salted caramel sauce. Great bunch of people including a producer who was ...
