Around the corner from the Louvre
There have been a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel. We booked because of it's central location in regards to the main attractions of Paris, as we like to walk to things rather than take public transport. We were not disappointed.
The room was small but pleasant, with a very comfortable bed and great water pressure in the shower.
Yes, there are a lot of stairs, and a small lift for only one person at a time. This was not a concern for us, as stairs are everywhere in Europe, so you might as well take the stairs and work on your fitness....you'll need it. There are a lot of restaurants in the area, as well as a great little supermarket in the same street.
