          Very good location. Room is clean and of reasonable size for Paris.

          Breakfast is not available before 7:30 am. It was important for us on departure day. The price should be slightly lower to match the quality provided by the hotel.

          Good staff and service, easy to communicate

          Lack of air conditioning - this was really drawback

        • Group of friends

          The staff were great - friendly and very helpful. We had a room with a balcony where we could sit and sip our wine after a long day of sightseeing. The location was good - you could easily walk, cycle or take the metro to any location in the City. The room was clean and the bathroom a good size.

          Fab location, ideal for a city break. Not luxury but perfect for a base.

          I think that it does not worth to take the breakfast at the hotel.

          The breakfast was from 7.45 very late for a person not on holiday.

          Clean pleasant hotel in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful Staff.

          Decor slightly Spartan. Furniture a bit rickety.

          I booked for two weeks at quite short notice for a business trip, and the staff were very helpful in fitting me in. I only had to change room once, and they made sure the room was ready early so I could change with minimum disruption.

          Concierge was very helpful in travel suggestions.

          Elevator was not working.

          The room didn't have pillows, just a rolled up piece of material, like a sofa end cushion. The shower didn't have a tray for soap either. Staying on the first floor, the restaurant below was incredibly noisy.

          This was an easy and comfortable place to stay. If you are just looking for a safe, no frills hotel in a convenient location, this is a good place. I felt safe in the hotel and in the neighborhood. It was right near the Seine and Notre Dame, and had a metro a block and a half away. The window balcony in my room was charming, and so was the quiet retro vibe. There were no "common areas" except for the small lobby, so for a solo traveller it was solitary. A breakfast could be delivered to your room during a 2-hour window in the morning, for a fee of 7 Euro.

          Location was good for the price.

          No air conditioning. I did not realize this when booking. Had to keep window open for ventilation. Guests and neighboring apartment dwellers were noisy. One neighbor had TV on until after 3:00 AM.

        • Family with children

          The location was wonderful and the hotel restaurant was very good. I would recommend this hotel for a smaller group.

          I booked a four person room with three beds. In the event there was only a double bed and a single, so my daughter and I had to share.

          it is a very nice location near metro and bus stations which makes it easy to move around.

          The room is too small and bathroom very very small which makes u uncomfort all the time. U can feel humidity in the room.
