Completely renovated in 2011, this small, stylish Paris hotel is across from the Luxembourg Gardens, close to the shops and restaurants of Saint-Germain, and 500 meters from Notre Dame.
Pros: Great Paris location next to the Jardin Luxembourg and Latin Quarter. Super easy access to the RER/Metro. Easy walks to various wonderful restaurants (Chez Marcel, Le Timbre, Les Papilles, etc). The staff was always very friendly, helpful, and accommodating (of our poor French). Cons: The hotel was restyled and is no longer an old classic 3 star hotel, but is trying to be a boutique hotel with limited success (style-wise). The rooms are very small (equivalent to a cruise ship bedroom/bathroom size).
