We stayed at Novotel many times and appreciate the consitent level of quality. And this is what we also got at this Novotel.
Check-in was professional and friendly. The rooms are spacious and were still in a good condition. Do ask for rooms facing the front since the view is quite nice overlooking the front courtyard. We did not have breakfast since Paris has better options for that but the breakfast spread looked pretty ok.
Location wise, the hotel is very centrally located in walking distance to the Louvre. Metro station is just in front of the hotel which is perfect.
The only downside in this hotel was the front staff. We asked for restaurant recommendation and the staff was not really familiar with the local area and could not really recommend something other then from the restaurant guide he took out which had sponsored restaurants.More
