This was our first trip to Paris so we booked this hotel based on the price and location and we were not disappointed!! The hotel is small and quaint, as are the rooms (by US standards), but they are very efficiently laid out so we never felt cramped. There was plenty of storage space and the typical amenities (flat screen TV, room safe, desk, kettle, toiletries), plus a few unexpected ones like a towel warmer in the bathroom!
The staff were all very friendly and accommodating and thankfully for us, they spoke English! I had called prior to our trip to request a room with an Eiffel Tower view and was so grateful to get it. It was amazing to look out our window and night and see the lights of the Eiffel Tower twinkling on the hour. The hotel is maybe a 10min walk across the river to the Tower, but is literally across a traffic circle from a plaza where you can get some amazing views/pictures.
The hotel just steps from the Trocadero metro station which was so convenient. So while this hotel is not super close to other major landmarks, we had no problem hopping on the Metro to the Louvre, Arc de Triomple, Notre Dame or any of the other spots. There are 3-4 cafes right on the traffic circle and we found a chocalatier, boulangerie and several markets within a few blocks where we could get pastries, sodas, fruit, bread and almost anything we wanted/needed.
This is truly a wonderful hotel that I would recommend to anyone visiting Paris. less
