La Lombarde felt like our home away from home! Location-wise: the neighborhood was fun, with tons of restaurants and shops within a few minutes' walk. The Centre Pompidou, which houses an amazing modern art museum, is only a couple of blocks away. Notre Dame and l'Hotel de Ville are also within walking distance. Metro stops are easily accessible as well. The only slight downside is that with several bars/restaurants directly below the room, it can be noisy at night for sleeping. We stayed out late anyway so it wasn't much of an issue. If stairs are difficult for you then I wouldn't recommend it as it is on the top floor with no elevator.
Madame Prigent was a wonderful and welcoming hostess. We were able to drop off our bags there earlier than check-in time so we could walk around comfortably. She offered suggestions on how to get to certain sights and treated us more like friends/family than customers. Breakfast in the morning is in her comfortable little dining area, with relaxing instrumental music playing in the background. It was so nice to start our day off there with coffee, juice, breads, jams, yogurt, and fruit before heading out for sightseeing. She also has a lovely little white cat who was so cute.
We loved our time there. It was so much better than staying in some chain hotel! We will definitely stay there again when we return to Paris!
