Clean, friendly staff, and the room had everything we needed, including a safe. Lots of stairs, though, and only a small lift, so could be a nuisance if you're not too mobile. Our room was at the back, looking onto a small internal courtyard, so no view and quite dark, but it was quiet - quite a lot of busy restaurants across the road at the front. The bathroom had a bath and a hand held shower attachment, which I wasn't looking forward to using, but which proved surprisingly easy and effective. Breakfast appeared expensive, at 13 Euros, but after trying a nearby cafe, we decided it was pretty good value - cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, baguette and croissants etc on offer, and excellent, unlimited, coffee.
Mabillon Metro station is literally around the corner, and the hotel is within 10 or 15 minutes walk of Notre Dame. There are lots of little restaurants around the square of roads the hotel is on - we tried four different ones and didn't have a bad meal.
We wimped out of the Metro and took a taxi to and from Gare du Nord - only 15 Euros each way for three of us, with luggage.
Would definitely consider going back if I revisit Paris.More
