The hotel has a mere 39 guest rooms spread across the 6 floors of its 19th century building. The rooms come in three different categories (single, double and triple) and all feature very similar decor, differing only in terms of size and layout. The rooms on the corner of the building have a balcony and adjoining doors, making them particularly practical for families. The pleasant bathrooms in these rooms are also in the corner and have a nice window letting in plenty of light.
The double rooms have a floor area of at least 20m2 and are pretty spacious, particularly by Parisian standards. The rooms on the fourth and fifth floors, meanwhile, have pretty little wrought-iron balconies.
All of the rooms overlook the Boulevard Saint Michel, which is busy and therefore noisy at all times of the day and night, but rest assured that the double-glazing here is very effective in keeping out the noise. Do think twice before opening a window, though, particularly during the summer months, as the traffic is horrendous. Fortunately, there is air-conditioning in the rooms.
The decor is generally rather traditional, complete with carpeted floors and subdued lighting, making for perfectly pleasant yet rather unoriginal surroundings.
We particularly liked the fact that the rooms in the attic space on the 6th floor have porthole-type windows which open up across the rooftops of Paris. These are smaller and not as bright as the others, but they are nevertheless extremely appealing! Room n°603 in particular is especially well-placed for views of the top of the Eiffel Tower. Do bear in mind, though, that these 'attic' rooms are noisier since the porthole windows are very old and do not, therefore, have double-glazing.
