We chose this hotel mostly because of its location: it was only a 10min walk from the roissybus station, to the main shops and department stores, a good number of restaurants, metro stations etc.
As for the hotel, there was really not much to complain. The reception staff was polite and friendly, and helped us booked dinner reservations when requested. The only thing i didn't like was that we had to hand them our room key everytime we left the hotel (but we soon learned that it was quite a common practice with small French hotels) and when we came back, all we had to do was give them our room number and they would give us the key. I was just a little worried about the security since anyone could've claimed they stayed in our room and could've gotten access. I wasn't sure if they really remembered exactly who stayed in what room, because to them, probably all us Asians look the same!
We had room 605 on the top floor, which faced the courtyard. It was a quiet room overall (at least i couldn't hear the bar crowd down below) but the walls aren't soundproof. I heard our neighbors quite clearly and i'm sure it was the same for them. I really liked the size of the room: it was large enough for us to open both our large suitcases at the same time (and still have room to walk around) and it also had a daybed which could probably be fit to accomodate a third person (if they allow it!). The bathroom was a bit dated but it was decent and clean.
Overall i liked this hotel, and even though it was a bit expensive (we paid 200EUR/night) it was still worth staying at such a decent location. Would definitely stay there next time we visit Paris!
