A simple clean friendly hotel in the best location in Paris. View of Notre Dame from the window what more could you want? Seems just the same as it ever was. Make sure you visit Shakespeare and Co. for coffee on the corner.

RER B, if you stay one week, buy the Navigo pass for approx 23 eur but you need photos. Do check the day of the week because I guess it stops on Sunday evening
