I stayed here for about 9 days. My first reaction was that the room was rather tight, and you could tell they struggled to get everything to fit. The bathtub was apparently custom made to get fit, and the toilet was in a different "room", more like a closet. That said, it was a fine, albeit smaller, room, and had a fridge and a desk that was quite viable for working. One thing of interest: it did look like many of the other rooms were smaller. The room was clean, bed comfortable. The place was well lit.
One thing that has to be said: The internet was plenty fast. Thank you!
Another plus: the hotel is very well located. It is right down town, and you can get most places by foot, and the metro stops are nearby for catching subways to other locations. There is a store next door.
Given that the reviews were not overly positive about the breakfast (8 euros), and that I can go without breakfast and there are plenty of places to get a croissant or something, I did not have breakfast at the hotel.
All my interactions with the staff were very positive.
I was somewhat mystified by the hot water pot in the room given that they did not provide a tea cup, and seldom provided a teabag or instant coffee. They should provide both.
There are lots of places to eat withing walking distance. Abel's and Le Sud are very good choices. I would recommend reservations at Abel.
Bottom line: A fine choice, but don't expect much beyond a solid room, very helpful staff at the desk, and a good location.
