i found this hotel too on trip advisor after reading many reviews. the location was a plus and it was certainly wonderful to have everything in walking distance including the shopping over near Chatelet. The hotel is beautifully presented and reception very welcoming.
the only thing i would like travellers to be aware of is that if you are a light sleeper dont ask for a room to face the street..check this before going! (if you come for more than 2 nights you may be stuck in a particular room and not able to move)
we stayed as a family for 5 nights and there was noise every nite. there is a discotheque very close and people were leaving 4-5 am and more than slightly intoxicated ..yelling and laughing..i heard one of the guests telling Mr Santa Ana the next day that it was disturbing and he remarked it was normal..For the rest of the stay, starting from 5.30 am on, it was still noisy from cars beeping and trolleys cluttering and being wheeled across the road for laundry and food delivery trucks early in the mornings which were parked out in the street. i asked if we could move rooms and we were told they werent available. Strangely enough two sets of young couples came in off the street with no reservations and they were given rooms for the night.
sadly added to the noise are the paper thin walls of which it is easy to hear some toilets and bathrroms next door.
Also, the breakfast is adequate but it would be nice to have some fresh fruit.
