The front of the hotel is very "Paris" - window boxes filled with flowers, bikes parked out front - and a great area too! The Republique stop has awesome cafes around it, so the location is wonderful. The bikes were awesome! No problems at all. And Pluto, the hotel dog, is extremely sweet and docile.
Our room was nice, but no air conditioning, which was fine. Really cute and well decorated! We didn't do breakfast - there are way too many boulangeries and patisseries close by for cheaper pastries and espresso.
