The hotel was very charming & accommodating. They held our room for us when we got delayed by a day due to some travel problems which was really comforting and despite some language problems (my problem, not theirs...I don't speak French) the check-in was smooth.
We stayed with two adults and two teens so the little 2-bedroom setup worked really well for us. The rooms are quite small, but oddly feel like home with a little kitchenette, and desk area.
We walked just about 1 block away to the grocery store and bought some supplies so we could try to eat for a little less money than going out every night, so we were really able to use the refrigerator, microwave, etc., and appreciated the dinnerware and silverware in the room. Also there is a washer & dryer available in the basement area which was really nice as were on about day 7 of the vacation and needed some clean cloths badly. You bring the coins and the soap.
The bathroom was almost too small - now granted I am 6' 4" and 290 lbs, so I am not the average European build by any means, but I literally I had to turn sideways to fit out the bathroom door.
Though we had no issues whatsoever, the neighborhood appears a little shady. Lots of graffiti, and a few abandoned buildings, but then you see many business people, families, etc all walking around so maybe it is I who should not judge a book by it's cover. Inside the hotel grounds feels safe & secure and I had no concerns at all for safety or theft or anything like that.
There may be a better route and hopefully future commentors can help out here, but we used the Laplace train station and just had a short walk (10-15 mins) and it worked out great for us. That same train BTW goes right to Notre Dame without having to change trains :-)
Would I stay here again - yes absolutely!
