Step inside the doors off Bd Saint-Marcel and you know immediately that this hotel is "different". The reception area and adjacent guests lounge are tastefully "avant gard" - you are greeted like friends, and not strangers.
Mine hosts and their staff are wonderfully helpful -you know, they actually smile :)
The rooms have been recently redecorated (again, in a very contemporary style), and while not huge, neither are they the smallest in Paris - in typical Parisian fashion, both the elevstor and bathrooms and on the small side.
WiFi is OK (we were on the top floor - connection was good, but down/upload speeds were slowish).
I love this part of Paris: Moufftard market is 5 minutes stroll; Les Gobelins Metro is 3 minutes walk; Gare d'Austerlitz is very close - we arrived in Paris via the EuroStar from London (into Gare du Nord) - taxi was quick and cost €20 (including tip).
This is one of the better boutique hotels I have stayed at in Paris - I will return.
