Given its location, right opposite the Chatelet theatre and therefore in the centre and an easy walk/metro from everywhere, this hotel is astonishingly quiet. I think it's because the rooms face onto a little cul de sac - though you wouldn't know that to look at the exterior.
Our room was pretty tiny - but Paris bedrooms always are if you dont pay a total fortune. It was well-appointed generally - and had an exceptionally comfortable bed (though see below) - with a fruit plate too which was nice...and robes which I love.
And there is a cosy lounge as well as the breakfast room which again is quite unusual. Plus the staff are helpful
Two criticisms: the bedside lamps were so poor, neither of us could see to read in bed - boring. Plus my particular hate: a plastic undersheet. I can't sleep on these at all -waking after an hour in a great puddle of sweat. So I always rip them off before getting into bed - which makes them wholly counterproductive. I'm not a baby or incontinent and do not expect to sleep on rubber. You can get perfectly good undersheets that don't have that.
Anyhow - two little quibbles but otherwise a lovely place to stay.
