We stayed at Hotel Vintimille for four nights and were pretty satisfied with it. The best thing about this hotel is the location. You can talk five minutes to the Metro and easily get to the main tourist destinations in Paris. On our first night, we walked to the Sacre Coeur within 20 minutes, passing through the amusing red light district. ;)
It's near many restaurants, bakeries, cafes, a pharmacy (where you can also buy toiletries) and bars. I really enjoyed the Vietnamese place around the corner called Pho 20.
Our room was small, as expected, since it's a European hotel in a very old building. The bathroom was quite small. Large people be warned! If this is an issue for you, find some place else. I didn't care that much. Then again, I'm not large or tall.
I did find it strange that you had to turn over your key to the reception desk whenever you leave. It's like anyone could have walked in and said, "I'm in room 21" and they would have handed the key over. I mean, unless they had some sort of recognition system that is completely unknown to guests. ::shrug::
Most importantly, the room was clean and didn't smell weird. A solid C+.More
