I've stayed at this hotel 3 times, twice as a weekend stay over from business trips and once on vacation. For me alone, the hotel was decent, serviceable, well priced but not exceptional. I like the neighborhood -- the Marais -- off the usual beaten path of left bank and Place de la Concorde and La Madeleine area hotels, where I would normally stay.
Rooms are oddly shaped and typically small, but decently outfitted. I like the quiet of the courtyard and the local restaurants and shops.
It was only when on vacation when my wife and daughters joined (in an additional room), that the weaknesses of the hotel began to be pointed out. My wife especially struggled with the slow or lacking service, especially when it came to extra towels and hangers, or other simple requests. Interactions at the front desk could be efficient and friendly one time, and bumbling another, to the point where requests were forgotten. Mind you that we're not very needy; we don't make many requests, only those to get set up properly for a week's stay.
Would I return? Probably, since the prices at the time for a decent hotel, such as this, were compelling, and again, I like the neighborhood and don't mind walking to Le Palais Royale, Jardins de Rivoli, les Tuileries, etc. from there...or to Musee D'Orsay.
If you want to be in the middle of it all, this isn't the location for you. If you're used to the finer business, tourist hotels, this may not be it either.
