This is a great concept. Just 5 rooms on the first floor of an apartment building. It has been designed to feel like a B&B but with the comforts and privacy of a hotel room. Coming from Australia we do like a hot breakfast or cereal, however the hotel only offers a typical French breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, meats cheese, bread and croissants - it is great quality and fantastic service. The owners are wonderful, the beds very comfortable and the rooms are spotlessly clean. Our room #2 had a shower that was exposed to the bedroom so if this is not an issue then it is a lovely room albeit I did not see the internal spaces of any of the other rooms. It was quiet even though you are in the heart of the marais district and close to everything. You do have to cart your bags up a flight of very narrow stairs so if this is an issue I would ask if you can get some assistance which I am sure the owners would help with if you arrived between breakfast and 11am - after this you let yourself into the foyer and your room. There is a small kitchen for guests use with tea, coffee and biscuits (no milk) and breakfast is served in the foyer. There are only 5 rooms so it is a very intimate space and the owners are happy to assist you with any questions and will suggest options dependent on your interests. I will certainly stay again on my next trip to Paris and would recommend it to my family and friends. Well worth considering if you want to stay in the heart of Paris and expect 5* service and comforts.
