The rooms as other have said are small, cozy, cramp, whatever term you want to use, but from what I've been told this is the norm and not the exception in Paris. The room was clean, beds small but comfortable and small but clean bathroom as well. The front staff is friendly enough. The locations is good. Subway is just around the corner along with several places to eat. Most the cities attractions are 15-90 mins walk. Notre Dame is a reasonable 15-20 min walk along with some other sites.
Breakfast was good. The wifi worked flawlessly. The neighborhood felt reasonably safe unlike some other parts of Paris.
Price... it was the highest by far I paid for anywhere in Europe (or China or USA), but again having looked at dozens of other hotels online in Paris, this is also the norm, not the exception. Relative to other hotels in Paris, it's a decent value, but this hotel is not first class, so if that's what you expect, look elsewhere and expect to pay a LOT more. However, if all you want is a basic place to sleep, wash, and rest your feet, this might be for you.
