If they had an option for three and a half stars, I would've rated it that. I wouldn't say it was VERY good, but slight better than average. I wasn't overwhelmed, but I have no horror stories to tell you either!
We stayed here in December 2012. I picked it for two reasons: Location and price. I was not disappointed in either respect. The location is literally about 50 feet from the (Rick Steves made) famous rue cler. There are many shops on this street , including, bakeries, cheese shops, chocolatiers, fresh seafood, and, of course souvenirs.
The entire area is quintessential Paris in appearance, and yes, the food is very good as well. This makes the Hotel Beaugency great for those down times in between site seeing, or when you want to avoid the ten euros the hotel charges you for their so-so continental breakfast. You're much better off going on to rue cler and picking up something on your own.
The hotel itself is small. The rooms are small, the elevator is tiny (we had to send our luggage up by itself, then race up the stairs to meet it on the second floor! Our room was clean (I know this because my wife said it was acceptable and she is VERY particular about this). WE had plenty of hot water and the water pressure was good
The staff, while a bit impersonal (it IS Paris after all) was helpful. They'll give you directions, hail a cab etc.
All in all, the hotel was a good value. We paid about $145/nt in the off season, which, for Paris, is pretty good. Plus, we could walk to the Eiffel Tower, and other places, saving some money on taxis and giving us the great experience of strolling through some of the character dripping side streets in the 7th arrondissement.
I recommend this hotel. As long as you don't insist on having a large room, a view of the Eiffel Tower, or free breakfast, this hotel will meet your needs.
