This is nothing fancy but I would go back in a heartbeat!! The price and location are fantastic! The front desk was very helpful. It wasn't the cleanest, the carpet could definitely use some help, and the beds were a bit older than I've experienced, the stairs were difficult for my grandmother to navigate (we still laugh that she looked like she was climbing Everest when she hand over handed the rope up the steep stairs), but the location helped me fall in love with Paris. There is a beautiful park across the street, next door to Shakespeare and CO., across from Notre Dame, and right up the street from the most amazing cafe (I can't remember the name, but go through the park, turn right, and it's on the corner. Try the apricot pastry with a cafe au lait.) I would wake early, spend some time wandering the quiet avenues, including, take a leisurely breakfast at the cafe, head to Mass at Notre Dame...every morning. It was heavenly. I hope you have a fantastic trip.
