The hotel is in a central location, close to the Marais area and to Bastille/Place de Vosges, few hundred meters from St. Sebastien metro station; it's located in a quiet street so that there is no trouble for your sleep, but...the rooms are very small and we found very low light in the room where we stayed.

Directions: The hotel is in 2 Rue de beauce in the troisieme arrondissement. It is just off the main street. there are no fantastic views or anything but the price, the area and the ambience (and the patron and t
