This was the best hotel we stayed at on our honeymoon. The rooms are unique and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. We stayed in the Double bedroom suite with bath. The room was small like most European rooms but the bed was very comfortable. There are several restaurants near by, our last night we ate at Le Thermidor and the food was excellent and decent in price. There is a patisserie around the corner from Le Thermidor that had amazing treats. The Les Halles metro station is about 5 min walk from the hotel & the Louvre is about 5-10 min. as well. We did find out that this hotel does not allow children which may account for why it was so quite.

I loved my stay in the hotel. It was like an apartment but it was right in the middle of the city where everything was walking distance and it's 2 minute walk from luvre. The staff was very nice. They helped us book few site seeing. It is very tiny hotel but who stays in hotel in paris. Rooms were very comfortable and we had wonderful sleep. I think my next stay I'll go to same place :)

This hotel is a gem! I can't believe it's a 2 star as I've stayed in 4 stars where the beds weren't nearly as comfortable. My single room was small, but very cleverly laid out (sort of like a cabin on a cruise ship). I rated the public areas low only because the hotel was being renovated and the lobby was torn up. All of the room renovation was complete and they've done a wonderful job. The location is perfect for the Louvre and D'Orsay, which were my priorities. There are a number of restaurants nearby and a very friendly grocery store around the corner for snacks. It was an outstanding value for the money and I will definitely stay again on my next trip.

Excellent location, staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small, but very clean and cozy. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, but the price sounds reasonable considering Paris prices. Excellent value.

Overall we were very satisfied with this 2* hotel. its location was excellent. we stayed for 5 nights. The room was small but very clean and well kept,from what I have read the room was on power with 3-4* hotels. Breakfast was typicaly French, plenty to eat but based arround the basics of various breads/ jam/ meats/ fruit/ yoghurt/ juices T+C. Had to ask for Milk and spoons for the cerial every morning our only gripe for the whole of our stay. Reception very helpfull. Try the restaurant LOUISE close by for good food and friendly atmosphere.
