We just needed a bed for the night after a long drive and this fitted the bill. We paid £90 on Expedia. The staff were all very courteous and helpful and the atmosphere is charming with whimsical artistic touches. Our room was modern and perfectly clean with fine quality white sheets and a clean, modern bathroom with large powerful walk-in shower, no bath. There was a hairdryer and the usual toiletries. The lavatory was separate. The windows in the bathroom and in the bedroom opened, overlooking a narrow side street. There was very little hanging space or space around the bed, if I was there with any more luggage or for a longer time I would have found it far too pokey.Looking at the floorplan of the first floor the other rooms seemed to be a similar size or slightly bigger. A real pet hate of mine is the fact there was no full-length mirror - as someone who usually buys shoes when in France and Italy I do like to be able to see how they look! The surrounding area is lovely, nice bars and shops, many specialising in modern furniture and design items. Breakfast was 12 Euro each and was served in a bright rear room with good coffee, pleasant service and the usual selection of pastries, cereals, yoghurts, ham, cheese boiled eggs and fresh fruit. There was also a selection of newspapers in various languages. Tip for motorists: when you turn into the small street where the hotel is, you immediately see the entrance for the public car park which is under the square Des Celestins - drive straight down to park in a well-lit, spiral garage, a lift takes you back up to the square which you walk across to the hotel entrance. We paid only Eu13 for the overnight parking when we drove out the next day.
