We spent 9 wonderful days at this hotel (and in Paris!) Being French (from Quebec) we had no language issues. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room overlooking the interior courtyard was smal by North-American standard, but who says that size matters? It was quiet, comfortable and elegant. This hotel was part of what made this trip one of our most memorable. The location is great. (We had picked this hotel after reading all the great reviews on this site and we were not disapointed!) We also had an idea of where we wanted to stay and the Saint-Germain-des-Pres district (6th arrondissement) fit the bill. It is in proximity of some of the major sites.There is a Metro station a few minutes away and another one maybe 10 minutes away in the opposite direction where you can take a different line. Visiting by Metro was the best way to see the city. There are over 300 stations!
We also took the bus-very good transit system-- and the good thing about it was that you also got to see the sites while you travelled to your destination.
Bottom line: This is a great hotel and we would stay there again in a hearbeat. (In fact we are planning another quick trip to Paris next year).
BTW, I uploaded a lot of pictures of Paris on my website at the following address: http://www.freewebs.com/zzzland/More
