This was my first stay at this newly-renovated boutique-style hotel. The rooms are crisply decorated and large by Parisian standards. There is a fully-equipped kitchen in each room and some rooms have their own clothes washer and dryer. The only room available when I arrived, room 101, featured a beautiful panoramic view onto a fountain in a small square across the street from the hotel. This room, however also featured a lot of street noise (cars and moto's whizzing by and some kind of garbage collection at 2 AM on Rue de Montpensier with bangs, booms and beeps) that awoke me 3 times during the night. Management promptly moved me to a higher room, # 402 facing Rue de Richilieu that was perfectly quiet at night time. The breakfast buffet was good with lots of variety. The hotel has a small decently equipped gym with free weights and aerobic machines, and is right near the Louvre so perfect for runners. The hotel staff are welcoming and warm - a special thank you to Ismael for his professionalism. There are many mediocre and obscenely overpriced French restaurants in the area. I would suggest going to other arrondissements to sample French food for suppertime. Try l'Ambassade d'Auvergne on 22, rue du Grenier for really good food at a fair price. My sunset run from the hotel through the grounds of the Louvre, up along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower and back was a highlight of my stay.
In summary, this is a very good hotel in a great but noisy and touristy area. Light sleepers should request a higher room facing Rue de Richilieu. I would happily stay here again.
