Great location! Steps away from the metro (Chatelet), the Seine, Notre Dame, Louvre, tons of little pockets of restaurants and pubs all around. We walked from the hotel along the Seine to the Eiffel tower - it was a long walk (probably 1.5 hours including stops) all sorts of places to stop along the Seine. Hotel staff were excellent! Very helpful, especially with directions for Metro to Versailles. Each time we walked by the desk the staff was always helping a guest with directions/suggestions/plans. Room was typical European size. Clean! Comfortable bed. Biggest bath towels I've ever had in any hotel. Hair dryer, nice toiletries. Several outlets to plug in all your electronics. We enjoyed the breakfast on the morning we were flying out. Nice option if you have a morning flight. Small selection of eggs, bacon, cheeses (brie was delicious), meats, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices, coffee, tea, pastries, pancakes, I even noticed coco puffs. The hot water was out one morning. They immediately offered a breakfast (we took them up on it the next day - since we were headed to Versailles and didn't have time). There is construction across the street. Our room faced the front. If you had the window closed - you could not hear the construction noise. Cannot beat the location or the friendly staff!
