It's a bit older of a building, but in a great location. It has more of a boutique hotel feel. However, it was very clean and the room was serviced daily. It is very close to a major train station, which includes the metro and sncf. The breakfast was basic and expensive, but use it if you're in a hurry or just don't want to be bothered; there aren't many Parisian breakfast places around, just bakeries and delis. The staff mostly speaks french but they can speak English if necessary. The bathroom is prestinct clean. Great and comfortable bed. Currently there are construction Location are great as it is walking distance to St Lazare main train station but quite lot of drunk people and refugees roaming around at night.
