Quiet, centrally-located, hole-in-the-wall hotel
This is my third time staying at this hotel. I'm a return customer, because the hotel is on a narrow, quiet street, but centrally located -- steps away from Les Halles and its bustling metro and RER station, and consequently an easy reach from CDG airport. It's just a short walk to the Louvre, the Palais-Royal and the Seine. The staff are helpful, efficient, and aim to please. The rooms are small by American standards (so are the elevators and the bathrooms), but in Europe, this is to be expected. There is a wonderful restaurant two doors down, frequented by locals rather than tourists; there's an ATM at the corner, and a grocery store one block away. If I go back to Paris next year, this is my hotel.
