We stayed here for 3 nights in early April 2012. Clemence, the daytime front desk lady is a delight. She greeted us warmly and came to our room without hesitation to show us how to use our bath plug. Before we arrived she emailed me detailed metro instructions.
The small lobby is lovely. Everything kind of goes downhill from there in a homey kind of way. Our room, 700 or "the suite" was perfect for our family with a comfortable firm double bed in one room and a single bed and trundle bed in another room and a private bathroom with a bathtub (deep) / shower, simple shampoo and soap. The room also had a safe, tiny fridge stocked with canned drinks (there is a charge for them), a dresser, chair with broken seat (I reported it), desk and closet. If they changed that yucky '70's wall paper, what an improvement it would make.
Lighting was terrible with tiny side lamps. The bathroom was the brightest room!
Note: there's an elevator in the hotel but not to access the suite. You walk across a little patio and then climb a flight of narrow winding stairs.
Wifi worked well though low bandwidth. Ask for the password at the front desk. The whole place was spotless and they made up our room daily with linens that felt like new. The towels were on the crisp side shall we say.
Breakfast is offered for 9 euros per person in a small windowless room cheered up with a pretty garden scene painted on the wall. It's self serve and the staff lady did not limit our quantities like I've read about at other hotels. Here's what's offered: applesauce, yogurt, packaged cheese, jams, honey, nutella, nespresso-type coffee (various varieties), o.j. (tasty), milk, instant hot chocolate, baguette, croissant, twinkie type packaged cakes, Special K and coco-puffs. No eggs, meat, or hot food items. I think that about covers it!
Location. It's an easy 10-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower or Les Invalides. The hotel is not in a tourist district so it's great with all the shops that regular folks need. Within a block there are several bakeries, fruit stores, grocery stores, take out food, pharmacy, and restaurants. We had a great cheap Chinese meal one door down.
Noise can be a factor in Paris and this wasn't too bad. There's definitely some street noise but it simmered down overnight. The room above ours must have hard-wood flooring because we could hear people late at night one night.
There are probably more charming areas and hotels in Paris but this place worked well and the friendly staff was a bonus.
