The hotel is a clean, welcoming hotel with good sized rooms, a decent location and decent services.
The first thing you notice about the hotel is the fabulous welcome, it is that over the top, enthusiasm gone wild, nothing is too much trouble welcome you expect from the US but rarely see in Paris. Really puts a smile on your face. This is all the more welcome because the street the hotel is on is a little run down and bereft of Gallic charm.
The rooms are sizable for Paris as is the bathroom, the beds decent and all is very clean and proper. The hairdryer is one of those stuck to the bathroom wall, steel racking replaces the cupboard but these are small issues.
The location is good as you are within 5 minutes of the fabulous Place de Vosges, the Marais and Bastille. The Metro is very close. One gripe is that the next road along is Boulevard Beaumarchais, no picture postcard itself, seems to act as a racetrack for the entire night, so if you have a street side room the windows have to remain closed; although the sound proofing prevents noise seeping through and the aircon is good.
In summary the hotel is well located to visit the Marais but it would be better to find a hotel in it, the other side of the Beaumarchais, however if there is limited availability and prices are high this hotel is nice and the location not that much of a problem.
