For 110 Euros a night in Paris, the price is certainly right. The location could not be better, directly across from Notre Dame and overlooking a lovely little park right outside your window. RER and Metro just a few steps away. The furnishings are shabby, the rug is worn and the fixtures look a little beat up, but then again, you can't expect a posh room for 110 Euro. This was my third stay at this hotel. The previous two stays were in the early 1990s when the hotel did not accept credit cards, did not have a reservation system online, refused to even try to meet English speaking people half way, and the rooms were dirty and dusty. So, it has come a long way. The biggest loss is that breakfast is no longer served in that lovely little nook under the stairs. But now there is free Wi-Fi. It didn't work well in the room but was available in the lobby where there are comfortable chairs. For people wanting to be pampered in luxury, look elsewhere. For those looking for great value and location, this is the answer. Just do not expect high end furnishings. Bedding was clean and towels fresh daily.
