We chose this hotel largely based on the reviews on tripadvisor. We spent a week in the 3rd week of June and were very happy with the choice.
The best things include; Very quiet and clean room, firm comfortable queen size mattress, good a/c unit and a 5 minutes walk to St Lazarre metro ( with all of its connections). We walk alot found it an easy walk to the Opera, the Louvre and even Notre Dame. Paris (with a good map) is great to walk in and this central location served us well. As busy as the St Lazarre train station area is, this hotel is tucked away on a quiet street only, so you quickly leave the noise/traffic behind. As noted by others, the reception staff are friendly, and there is a free laptop for guests in the lobby.
On the more negative side, as others have commented, we found Paris hotel prices generally higher than in other cities and the room was definitely the smallest we've stayed in. The only way to open our suitcases was to put them on the bed, one at a time. We did not take the breakfast at the hotel.. but there are many cafes a short walk away.
If you want to consider dinner in areas, restaurants that are less tourist focused, there were many lovely restaurants we went to a short walk from the hotel near Metro Villiers, It was about a 10 min walk from the hotel with a great neighborhood feel.
Paris is a wonderful city. This hotel was a great choice for us.
