If you want a true Parisian hotel experience and avoid the cookie-cutter approach, this may be the hotel for you. Warmly greeted by an English speaking receptionist, we were able to securely store our baggage until the room was ready, thus enabling us to hit the pavement and start touring right away.
We booked a deluxe superior room that was clean, comfortable, and with enough elbow room to move around in. We did have some street noise, but our ear plugs remedied any significant problems. Most importantly: everything worked, including robust a/c.
Do not expect a large, ornate lobby, large breakfast area, or average sized elevator. All are quite small. In fact, you can have breakfast delivered to you room at no extra charge, I suspect, due to the small size of the breakfast room. Speaking of breakfast, you can have eggs to order, a side meat, coffee, juice, and delicious breads that only the French know how to make.
The location was perfect for us. Several sights were in walking distance and with the Odeon metro a few minutes away, all of Paris was at our footstep. Additionally, dozens of restaurants were within a few blocks.
Should we return to Paris anytime soon, we will happily stay at the Le Regent.
