My husband spent much time on-line researching hotels in Paris. He won the prize! This was a perfect spot for us. He loves to travel using as much public transportation as possible including our feet. So we pack very lightly. We were able to take the metro to the hotel, 3 blocks away. Then walking to everything we wanted to see plus buses around town, including the infamous Bus 69 or was it 99, can't remember to get an overview of the city. (see Rick Steve's recommendations) Got off at the end of the route had lunch and returned again. Obviously were were there off season and we checked in early, so the desk gal gave us a tour of the 3 rooms available and got really lucky. We had a fabulous room on the corner of the building facing the Eiffel Tower, could see the tower when lying in bed and were able to watch the light show while having cheese and bread one night. When making reservations like on Booking.com etc. make a comment you want a room with a view of the tower. Like most other's have stated, rooms small but had new furniture and fixtures, bath size like most of Europe. If you have any bags larger than carry on size you'll be tripping over them. We were able to put our carry-ons up on the closet shelf. Fridge in closet stocked with items for sale. Breakfast room in basement with a full breakfast buffet, eggs etc. but $$. Ate there once on day of departure. Otherwise we loved to catch a cafe on the way out for the day. Plenty of restaurants around and just 3-4 blocks from Rue Cler, shopping, markets and more restuarants. Hotel is $$ but good choice for us. Would go again.
