The hotel is located right in the heart of Vincennes opposite Chateau de Vincennes, with metro nearby and an accessible taxi ride to Charles de Gaulle. Aside from the location, the rooms are very comfortable and small but not unusual for a Parisian hotel. It is decorated in a (I suppose) Renaissance style, with an armoire, standalone desk and night tables, plus crimson red wallpaper or paint, but again not unusual for France and Europe and it added a nice touch to the room.
The bathrooms however were excellent by comparison to any European hotel. I was given a room in the courtyard and the bathrooms were a narrow spiral staircase down, but it meant the hotel was able to fit in a large bathroom (even by US standards) with large showers plus a towel heater.
The courtyard location of my room helped insulate against any street noise and I found the room very quiet despite being next to a main thoroughfare. The staff was very friendly and helpful on checkin, although the night person was rather unhelpful when I got a little lost in the lobby trying to find the correct door into the courtyard.
All in all I highly recommend the hotel for its convenience, character, and price. less
