I selected this hotel after doing quite a bit of research on price vs room size, and location in Paris. This was my first trip to Paris. From CDG airport, we took the Roissy Bus for 12 euro to the Opera metro station (a little over an hour). It was about a ten minute walk with our luggage from there. The hotel is located in Passage Jouffroy, which is on the same block as the Grands Boulevard metro station, and a little over a block from the Richelieu-Drouot metro station. The check-in process was very quick, and the front desk staff both spoke English. The reception desk is located on floor 1 (second floor), and was much nicer than I expected. Our room was on the floor 2, and it was nice the room key was needed to access our hallway from the stairway/elevator area. Room was larger than expected. I was amazed as to how quiet the room was even though we faced the busy road. We also never heard any noise from the other rooms. The king bed was very comfortable. Everything in the room was very clean. Room had all of the standard items such as free wifi, large LCD TV (there were 3 English channels), and small fridge. We opted not to get the breakfast.
Gate to Passage Jouffroy gets locked at 9pm every night, so there is a button to call the front desk for them to remotely unlock the door. The passage has a convenient store next door as well as a great sweet shop. Along Boulevard Montmartre, there are a bunch of restaurants (McDonalds to bistros) and a grocery store a few blocks away. It was about a 15 minute walk to the Louvre (no convenient metro to Louvre from the nearby stations). We took the taxi to CDG airport due to the weather, and it was 56 euro. I will stay here again next time I am back in Paris. less
