We spent a week here as a base for our family holiday in Paris. We had to choose this hotel at the last minute when our booking at another hotel was unexpectedly cancelled (long story), but I think we may have enjoyed this place more than we would have the other anyway.
The location is extremely convenient to the Poissonière metro station (Google says it is 52 meters away, but I think it may be less). Although the 7 line is not the most convenient line, we found it easy to get everywhere we wanted to go.
The rooms were very clean and recently updated. We chose the executive rooms, which meant that our rooms were on different floors, but the hotel is so small (29 rooms, I think), that this was not really a problem. The bathrooms and the showers specifically were large, but for some reason, the toilet itself was in a completely separate and unattached space. These rooms have windows both front and rear, so getting a cool cross-breeze was easy. We were there several days before the kids realized that there was air-conditioning in the rooms, and I don't think we ever used it in our room. The street noise was a little bit bothersome because we left the windows open, but after a long day of sightseeing, I was able to sleep through anyway.
Breakfast downstairs was typical fare for a Continental hotel, and I think that our youngest child's (10 years old) was free, as we were only charged for four instead of five breakfasts. The breakfast staff has limited English skills, but between them and my limited French skills, it all worked out. The space where breakfast is served is very small and very quiet: actually uncomfortably so in both regards, but there are certainly plenty of other nearby places for breakfast if you prefer.
The desk staff were very helpful and pleasant throughout our stay, and their English skills were fine.
We would happily stay here again. less
