Pleasant and Peaceful Haven
Well situated and easy access to the city / river Seine / main train stations either by walking or catching the local buses at the junction with the hotel. Staff very helpful and room is comfortable, clean and air conditioning works well. Breakfast could have been more substantial with cereals but a typical continental breakfast :-)
