We stayed in their second hotel around the corner. It is a little noisier than the main building being over a bar, but looks out on the most Parisian street imaginable. When we returned we stayed on the second floor (no lift in this building so better if travelling light) which put us above the noise but still with that wonderful street view. This is the perfect room.
The rooms are quite small but spotless; WiFi is free and the breakfast (Croissant, baguette, jams, juice and coffee) is fresh and good and free.
The staff were all very helpful and the location is perfect. A couple of hundred metres from the RER which runs direct from Charles DeGaulle Airport to this station and the Metro is even closer. You can walk to Notre Dame in less than an hour seeing famous sites all the way.
The area around the hotel is filled with small cafes; there is a supermarket close by and cheese, fruit and wine stores nearby. It is a very safe area. On Sunday there are buskers along the street and a jazz quartet set up opposite our window. I could live here!
So if you don't need a big American tourist hotel but want to get the feel of the real Paris, this is the place to stay. Loved it.
