I stayed as a business traveller and was attracted by the relatively cheap rates and central location. As some other reviewers have commented this is a fairly basic hotel and I was fully prepared for this. The hotel, its staff and facilities I found to be quite acceptable. However, the level of noise in the hotel between approx. 06:00 and 22:00 Mon-Sat is frankly unacceptable. The cause - the neighbouring Brasserie has an extractor fan on their kitchen roof directly below many of the hotel rooms. While these things are never especially quiet, this particular fan seems to have some kind of malfunction - you can even hear it screaming one block away during heavy traffic! Luckily I had earplugs (which only slightly reduce the noise) and due to jetlag I was so exhausted I slept ok. However, if you are in any way noise sensitive or you plan to be in your room much between 06:00 and 22:00 you should seriously consider not staying here. Hotel des Arts - Please talk to your neighbours about the legality of that machinery on their roof! Certainly where I come from it would be illegal to make so much noise next to where people are living and sleeping!
