If you've ever visited a poorly maintained English B&B then you'll have an immediate mental image of this establishment. Annoying squeaking doors in other people's rooms, tile grout needing damp-mould removing, plugs and light switches needing tightening (I personally tightened the bathroom door handle), bathroom fan didn't work in our room, carpet looked tired, wobbly (flat-pack style) wardrobe. The ensuite contained all the equipment expected, although space for the human user was less obvious.
On the positive side the bed was amazingly comfortable and got great nights of sleep for each of the 5 nights we were there, CNN and BBC World were available on the TV (a life line!), our room came with a plug converter (though not sure whether this was left by a previous occupant), very pleasant staff, the location is excellent, quiet area and, lets face it, if one pays English B&B prices in central Paris one can't expect the Ritz!
Would I recommend? I certainly wouldn't warn people against it, but would struggle to promote it on anything other than price.More
