A secret garden hotel
Excellent stay! Although there were rave reviews about breakfast, I wasn’t particularly impressed with the tiny portion, Everything else was outstanding. The place, the people and the neighborhood. The parking was icing on the cake. Absolutely recommend

Very friendly helpful staff. All fluent in English. Pleasant setting. Many good places to eat, have coffee near by, or you can eat and drink in the garden. I would return

A prefect spot
A lovely hotel with a delightful staff. The location is ideal for me, although it my not be for someone visiting Paris for the first time and eager for sight-seeing. This will be my first choice for future trips to Paris.

A beautiful hotel with a central garden
We loved this hotel. We stayed six nights in a family room (#251), which had a queen-size bed and a couch. There was plenty of room for my wife and me. In addition to the couch, we had a small table with two chairs and a desk area with a chair. The room had three windows with views to the central garden area and the street. We had breakfast each morning in the garden since the weather was so nice during our stay. It was an excellent continental breakfast with waitress service. Our only minor complaint was the bathroom lacked space for our stuff, as is often the case in older hotels. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we return to Paris.
