Me, my wife and my 8 years son were there for 5 nights in the end of Feb-2006. Perhaps one could expect a little bit more confort and larger rooms (ours was really small) for a 3* where some luxury hotels are 4* (I even heard more than once that the French haven't 5*), but still it was a good deal for 65 ? a night for the three of us.
The staff is friendly enough, but not too expansive.
The location is very good, 50 meters away from Voltaire metro station, which in turn is in a line that ends in the important hub of Nation. That means that one reaches rapidly any part of the town or suburb.
You can also take a bus direct to the Louvre and Tour Eiffel in a bus stop 1 block away from the hotel.
Although we didn't it, mainly because it was too cold for a southern family like us and we have a kid that sometimes stresses after a few hours of walking, the central Marais and Ile de la Cite (Louvre, Notre-Dame, the Mairie, etc.) is perfectly accessible by foot.
There are a couple of choices of restaurants and cafes nearby.
I spend a couple of hours searching in hotel reservation websites before I reserved and after being there I don't hesitate in saying that I did an excelent choice and I wouldn't mind reserving it again.
Unique Quality: Location, price
Directions: Very close to Voltaire Metro station, which is in Boulevard Voltaire. I think it is in the "border" of the Marais district, not far from Bastille. Pere Larchaise cemetery is also very close.
