Paris beats Aspenfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Kind of pricey but good locationfrom madam_bomb
It IS on a busy avenue (Rue de Buci is a great street with shops and cafes) but you're in a world-class city, not a suburb. I'm a light sleeper and didn't have a problem with it. I would definitely stay up high if you can.
Interesting part of the hotel is the art of course. The stairway is a huge circular affair replete with a great graffiti mural all the way down and all the doors are done by different artists (about 10 artists in all, some doing different doors).
There was a cafe downstairs, but I never even poked my head down there. They have papers and a great concierge service (They even got a reservation at a restaurant we were hoping to dine at).
Overall it was a great place. Kind of romantic and kind of hip (in that buttoned-up Parisian way). I'd recommend it to couples and maybe business travelers, but it's probably not for kids as the rooms (at least ours) were a bit tight (it's in an old apartment building essentially, like many small hotels in Paris).
PROs: Nice and friendly staff, beautiful rooms and bathrooms.
CONs: noisy and crowded (almost pedestrian) street plenty of restaurants and bars.
PRICE: In my opinion a little overpriced
Overall rating: really above average
Well deserved reputationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
comfortable, friendly and unbeatable locationfrom JBBUN
Bedroom- Fine size, smartly appointed, quiet despite overlooking the street on the first floor, good AC, very comfortable bed.
Staff – bend over backwards helpful.
Location- wouldn’t stay outside this district when visiting paris again. Shopping nirvana is on your doorstep- bon marche (best department store in Paris by some distance), rue cherche midi, rue four- you wont escape this area without happily hammering your credit card. Any number of great restaurants and great buzz.
Price- We opted for the Large double room in the last week in October- €235 a night.
We booked directly by email at a price equal to any of the ‘cheap sites’ we consulted. Although it may have been possible to get better value elsewhere, the room, hotel atmosphere etc were flawless and it was money well spent. The exemplary service the hotel offered began with the booking when we got an immediate response. The hotel also booked a table at the excellent restaurant Lipp nearby (think of Bewleys in Dublin but with far better food (and still open) and as authentic a French atmosphere as is possible in a restaurant that appears in so many guide books).
Only downside was breakfast- surprisingly poor- just don’t bother!

Top Local Tips for Paris
Catacombs, Gargyole Tour and Seine River Cruise There were three things we knew we definitely wanted to do on this trip and that was visit the catacombs, visit Notre Dame and view the city from the top of Notre Dame and take a cruise on the Seine. We accomplished all three and highly recommend them. The catacombs are an extraordinarily unique and humbling experience but get there early b/c by the time we left there was a huge line and I don't imagine a dark cavern filled with tourists and human bones is much fun if there is pushing and shoving. Definitely wait in the line (there's always a line) to climb to the top of Notre Dame. The gargoyles up close are just fabulous and it's great way to see the city. Finally, take a cruise on the Seine. I honestly can't remember which cruise we did but the one hour cruise that departed at 9:50pm just as it was getting dark was highly memorable and the piped in French music (if you can count Sinatra singing "I love Paris" as French) set the scene even if somewhat cheesy!
August is not the ideal time to visit Paris. If you do not like hoards of 'tourists' do not visit Paris in August. I loved my time in Paris but had to stay away from the 'attractions' as all I could see sometimes was the tourists. Many of the tourists seemed very intent on their checklists and must do's while completey unaware of others who were in the same gallery, cafe, train, shop etc with them. I was warned not to go in August but as i was travelling to go to a wedding i did not have much choice.
Good dining For dinner in St Germain: Le Relais de l’ Entrecote for meat lovers, and the Brasserie Lipp. For cofee/pastries Cafe de Flore. Also for some of the best dishes of duck, the chain "Chez Clement", where the food was so good that helped us forget the awful service. For shopping, dont forget to go at the Gallerie Lafayette, which can be considered a tourist attraction like the british Harrod's, but also at the area of Montmartre, there are a lot of small shops with really pretty and cute things to buy. The Metro is convenient and very popular, but you don't have the chance to see the city. There is a tourist bus going around the city, and the taxis are not very expensive. Also except of the main, and well known attractions don't miss the excellent Picasso exhibition at the Grand Palais.
