We stayed here on our last night in Paris in a third floor room with a balcony overlooking la Rue de Rivoli and had a wonderful time. The air conditioning unit was quiet and effective. The very helpful woman at the front desk, recommended a splendid restaurant around the corner (Le Bourguinon du Marais), and quickly booked us a shuttle to Charles De Gaulle airport the next morning. The hotel is 3 blocks from the Musee de Carnavalet and maybe five blocks from Notre Dame. You can't beat it.
