We loved L'apostrophe! The rooms were stylish and clean, and best of all- the staff was friendly and very helpful. The reception was warm and the staff helped us by suggesting restaurants, directions, and confirming reservation and calling taxis. We felt well-cared for, and welcome.
The neighborhood is residential, but there are many options for food around the hotel. It is convenient to the metro (which is very easy to use) and on a line that goes directly to some of the big tourist sites in Paris. It is also easy to walk from this hotel to main tourist areas in Paris. It is very close to the Jardin du Luxembourg, which must be one of the most beautiful gardens in the world! And to walk to the Louvre, one need only to walk north on the BLVD Raspail to Rue de Bac and cross Pont Royal ( about 3 Km.) We did this several times day and night and always we felt safe walking. We liked the neighborhood very much.
I tried very hard to practice my French- but no worries- the staff spoke English so there were not problems. The breakfast for 7.5 euros was good: coffee, baguette, a small pain au chocolat and a small croissant (per person.) One may order additional items. The juice (extra) was freshly pressed and delicious. They prefer to serve breakfast in the room, as there is not much room for all the hotel guests to eat in the lobby. The soap and amenities smell great.
Two warnings: 1) as is common in Europe, the rooms are small to American standards. However, they will store luggage for you if you want to unpack. We did this and it worked well. 2) the street-side rooms can be loud, but when we had the windows closed it was fine.
There are many big hotels in tourist areas in Paris- but when I return, and I hope to do so- I will choose this warm, friendly and trendy boutique hotel in the quiet neighborhood again! it makes the trip extra-special.
