I have stayed at this hotel many times. The location is perfect for tourists, and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms have recently been renovated and redecorated. Happily, the other reasons that it is attractive have not changed. The hotel is two blocks from Les Halles, where the train from CDG airport has a stop. It is two blocks the other way to Pont Neuf and the Seine.One may walk to many places, such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, and St Germaine. One of the boat tours is available just at the river. Many Metro lines are close. One may sit on benches in alcoves on Pont Neuf, or watch the tour boats on the Seine, or watch the twinkling lights at night on the part of the Eiffel Tower visible from the bridge.
The charming receptionists are friendly and extremely helpful. Ask them for recommendations for small local restaurants. There are many restaurants within walking distance. They will suggest Odette next door for an elegant last dinner in Paris. They also let us purchase tickets at the desk for one of the Hop On-Hop Off bus companies and made arrangements for a taxi back to CDG for us.
The breakfast buffet at the hotel is nice, with attentive staff. I especially liked the fresh crepes, with many choices of fruit preserves.
The hotel has a comfortable lobby with a computer for guests to use. However, after I failed, the receptionist cheerfully printed my boarding passes for me.
The rooms are not large, but do have a separate toilet room and a shower/sink room, a nice feature. The rooms off the courtyard are very quiet. The street side rooms will be quiet also, when the construction to improve Rue du Pont Neuf is completed (soon). It is a quiet street.
This hotel is a good place to stay at a good price. less
