Great hotel in a great area!
I read the reviews on this site (and others) before I got there. It was a great hotel. If you want to sit in your room to watch TV and order room service every day while in Paris, this is not the hotel for you. If you're looking for a safe, clean place to sleep and get a little down time in between seeing the city or doing business, this is it. The hotel is easy to find (2-3 blocks from metro) and in a very nice artsy area. I walked around alone in the evening and night time and never felt concerned about my safety. The neighborhood is quaint with several bakeries, restaurants, shops, bars and grocery stores within walking distance. The lobby is clean and comfortable- I spent an hour there before my room was ready. The room was comfortable and very clean. It was a little bit small by US standards, but more than I needed. The room could use a few updates, but I wasn't there to sit in the room all day. The bathroom was very recently remodeled and everything worked well. The staff was awesome. Every staff person I interacted with spoke English very well- they made me feel quite comfortable even though I speak very little French. The staff are very committed to ensuring guests have a good stay. They offer a number of amenities including room service (which I did not use) and a power converter (which I did use). There was always someone at the front desk and they are very willing to make recommendations, provide directions, or assist you in getting transportation. Awesome place.
