On a quiet street near [node:168630] and the Seine, it's in the very centre of Paris yet in a network of ancient streets that few visitors explore.
If you're after utter calm then opt for a double or triple overlooking the courtyard. However I prefer the streetside rooms with their views of the Gothic pinnacles and gargoyles of St-Germain l'Auxerrois church and (if you lean out a little) glimpses of [node:168630] at the end of the street. Breakfast can be served in your room all day. A fifth-floor apartment under the eaves, with living room, well-equipped kitchen and bedroom with open-plan bath occupies the entire top floor and is perfect for families in Paris for several days.
There's a pleasant beamed lobby-reception area with internet computer for guests' use, though there is no separate sitting room or breakfast room.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast can be served all day, but only in your room - there's no breakfast room.
The director has been here for years and really really looks after her clients.
