We stayed at the Hotel de France in Paris in April 2011 (not as title suggests). We had a double bedroom, although small was very clean and fit for purpose. We were visiting Paris and seeing the sights so all the home comforts of a more expensive hotel were not needed.
The location was good and we were able to walk or take the metró to Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower etc. We did not eat at the hotel, instead we opted to eat at the various cafés and restaurants locally. The surrounding places were very good for breakfast and lunch, or with a drink in the sun. The average temp for our stay was approx. early 20c. Very comfortable sitting outside the various cafés. Sadly we struggled to find a restaurant that didn't serve the same menu everywhere in the area around the hotel, it became boring eating the same thing every night on a limited menu. However an Italian restaurant called La Comedia in the Panthéon region was by far the best, including food and service.
Our double room faced the street and was not too noisy to disturb our sleep and the room comes with air conditioning, free wifi and a flat screen TV (most channels were in French). Our room had railings outside (not really a balcony) but was nice to watch the world go by, and the sun shone in the double doors. Although we only saw the staff at reception and no one else, they were very nice.
