This was the perfect hotel for my first trip to Paris. I came with my 11 year old daughter. The hotel is very clean. Also very small, situated in a residential area in the 7th arrondisement. Free internet access is provided - ask the concierge for the password. It offers breakfast - either "petit dejuner" which is coffee or tea, juice, breads and jam, or a larger breakfast with eggs, toast and fruit (both for an extra charge) Our room was small by American standards, but all we really needed. We stayed in room 27, equipped with 2 twin beds, small closet, mini-fridge, safe, TV, AIR CONDITIONING, and large bathroom with bath, sink, and stocked with towels, washcloths, water glasses, hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and lotion. Apparently, there are larger rooms, as a family of 4 is staying here as well. Across the street there is a small grocery store, and laundry / dry cleaner. Down the street is a lovely fruit shop and also a yummy bakery. Also in the same block are a pharmacy, and 2 banks with cash machines. Many good cafes and restaurants within 5 - 10 minute walk. 5 minute walk to the Invalides Metro stop so very easy to take Metro transport almost anywhere. (Get a Paris Visite pass at the station for the number of days you will be there and you won't have to buy a ticket for every trip on the Metro. If you plan to leave the central city, get one for zones 1-6, otherwise zones 1-3 will do.) Staff was very friendly, and the concierges at the front desk all spoke English passably well. The hotel is VERY reasonably priced for Paris. The neighborhood is quiet, and safe. We would definitely stay here again.
