The hotel is in a great location as it is close to many great attractions and yet in an interesting and relaxed neighborhood. For running it was great as it is only a short distance to the river and good running along either bank of the Seine. There is some good shopping nearby and an excellent bakery next door. The staff of the hotel were excellent, friendly and efficient. The breakfast was nice. The main problem for me was the room which was very small (admittedly a common issue in some European cities) and the noise from the other rooms, noise of flushing toilets etc. The bathroom was quite a tight space. I would definitely stay in this area again and if at this hotel pay extra and get one of the better rooms.
