Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noosa14 Excellent location
I chose this hotel after considerable research to find the best location for my needs and I was very happy with my choice. The staff were a little off-hand and I was disappointed that they did not make much effort to assist me when I lost my reading glasses in the restaurant and this caused me considerable frustration.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paris, YES Please! Outstanding!
From the moment I checked into the hotel very early in the morning, I was welcomed warmly. The room was upgraded for my status and I was made to feel special. I was very needy and the staff helped me out every time. The roof top was awesome with great views and a limited bar. No Scottish single malt was odd considering its proximity to France! The bed was soft and so nice. The bathroom was so modern and cool but I could see how some folks with conservative taste may not think its was as neat as I did. The location of the hotel was perfect, across the street from Saint Mikes fountain and like 4 blocks form Notra Dame. The whole area had coffee and pubs with great restaurants all over. The subway train was direct to the airport too. My only 4 star was some hair in the bathroom.

This hotel has few pros and cons which seem to balance each other out ... just about !!. It gets a marginal positive from me.
On the plus side it's in an excellent location, just a few yards from the Boulevard St Michel and a very short walk to Notre Dame Cathedral. The St Michel Metro station is at the end of the road. The tower view rooms are good, have a nice balcony and do in fact have a great view of the tower. The breakfast choice is excellent and provide a great start to the day. Overall the staff were very friendly and helpful.
On the down side. The tower view rooms are very small. It will comfortably hold 2 adults OR 2 suitcases. It gets very cramped when there are 2 adults AND 2 suitcases in the room. Storage space is extremely limited.
I made use of the bar on 3 occasions none of which was a good experience. On the first visit the barman told me he wasn't experienced enough to make me a Gin and Tonic and would have to find someone else. Next night the barman forgot about my order and wandered off to the reception area to chat with colleagues (I was his only customer !!). On my last visit I had to go looking for the barman ....maybe he was away learning how to do Gin and Tonics.
