My wife and I recently stayed in Paris for two nights during a European whirlwind tour and stayed at the Monte Carlo while visiting. Here's the lowdown:
Rooms - Expectantly small (as is typical of hotels in Europe) but spotlessly clean with a quirky style and fun decor. Having a room overlooking the street gave us a true feel of Parisian atmosphere.
Reception/staff - friendly and very helpful. Being our first visit the Paris, the front desk was more than happy to assist us in planning our street walks and finding particular places.
Location - Fantastic location located on a less busy side street very close to cafes and about a 25 minute walk from the Louvre. Once you get your bearings, Paris seems to get easier and easier to more you walk around.
Breakfast - seemed a little pricey for what was being offered so opted not to take it and rather eat at one of the numerous cafes in the immediate area.
Overall - Very much enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it as one of the more affordable options for sightseeing in Paris. We loved the atmosphere, the Monte Carlo's unique style and had a generally positive experience all round. 4 well deserved rating points.
