I stayed in this hotel with my husband and our two grandkids (6 and 9). it was in a great location, right across the road from a metro station (though it seemed to have a fairly infrequent service, and is restricted to only one line), however, it was less than 10 minutes to walk to Denfert Rocherau, which is served by many lines, including the RER, which was handy for getting to and from Gare du Nord. That station is also very near the Catacombs, so if you are planning a visit there, this hotel would suit you well.
The hotel is quite old, but clean and the staff were very pleasant and spoke good English - though I spoke French as much as I could, even if it was quite bad!
We had a suite, so it was two good size bedrooms; a double and one with a sofa bed. Each room had their own TV (but one remote control!), and our had a nice balcony and the usual coffee maker, fridge, safe etc.
The configuration of the suite was a bit strange, which is what you expect with an old building. Apart from the two bedrooms, there was a bathroom with a sink, a shower room with a sink, and then a toilet on it's own, which was in an extremely small room - literally just the toilet and enough room to stand up!!
We found it quite amusing, but if your mobility is poor and you need to lean forward to get off and on the toilet, you will need to have the door open - so just be aware!
Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat at the hotel. There are plenty of food places in easy walking distance, and we got breakfast items from a supermarket as it saved us some money - eating out is incredibly expensive in Paris.
All in all, we would use this hotel again. If you are coming into Gare du Nord, it is probably a 10-15 minute direct journey on the RER, and then less than 10 minute walk to the hotel, so if you are travelling on the Eurostar, that's useful to know. The hotel are also happy to store your luggage for you on your last day. less
