We had paid extra for a superior room and were given a room at the very top of the hotel on the 8th floor. The room was a reasonable size with a large bathroom. As everyone has said everything was spotlessly clean but very basic. We had taken our own toiletries. We had 2 dormer type windows but no balcony which was disappointing having paid extra and a proper shower would have been welcomed. We had a hand held thing over the bath that I never did quite master. We did have an excellent view of the Sacre Coeur from the bathroom window. Some of the standard rooms that we saw had showers and balcony windows and although they were smaller than our 'superior' room they would have been perfectly ok. I wouldn't pay the extra for a superior room if we stayed again.
Location is good close to 3 metro stations but there are a considerable number of homeless people sleeping in the area around the hotel. It reminded us of Sydney. We mainly used the Place de la Republique metro because it was easy to walk to the hotel from there and that metro is a hub for lots of other lines. We walked back from the Notre Dame and it took about 15 minutes. The walk to the Louvre is about 30 minutes.
We ate breakfast at a place round the corner in the Rue Temple but that was because there was no sign of breakfast on offer at the hotel. There are plenty of restaurants in the area.
It can take a while to get the lift in a morning if there are a lot of people checking out. The lift can take 3 people but is really only big enough for 2 or only 1 if you have large suitcases.
