By abrupt I mean that I thought I booked a twin room but confirmation came back that I only had double bed. I wrote back saying I was going with my mum and therefore needed two beds and hotel reception wrote back that they only had this room as 'he already stated in his previous email'. I don't know, I just think in a service industry that's a bit rude. Everyone's busy in life, it doesn't hurt to be nice.

Sometimes it's the language barrier that makes it a bit difficult to understand each other. So are you stuck with one double bed or did the hotel understand you need two separate beds?

No, I'm stuck with a double bed unfortunately. I might have to look for another hotel. I really wanted to stay there after reading all the reviews on Fodors, but I think I would prefer 2 beds.

We just returned from 4 days in Paris on Sunday. We stayed at the Hotel du Seine in the 6th...clean and excellent service 200E for a triple..but beware of noisy rooms which face the small busy street. Garbage is picked up daily including Sunday at 6AM! Last year we stayed at the Madison (up the street) and it was wonderful with excellent service. Quite rooms face the courtyard (brick wall yes, but it is QUIET). triple was over 300E.
Enjoy!

to clarify,...there are 2 kinds of rooms at the Madison and Hotel du Seine...either you face the busy street or the "courtyard" which is another building...depends on whether you want to experience the charm of the city (street view) and deal with the noise or not. We found people at both hotels to be very helpful and friendly. The Madison is recently remodeled so hence the higher price than last year (100E more)

Not sure it would qualify as boutique, but 6 of us, all women, stayed at the Hotel des Saint Peres in May. We had two singles, a standard double and a superior double...all were fine, the location and staff were great and we felt it was a good value for what we got.

Thanks for posting about Hotel de Seine, janetemery. It looks allright from the website, but I read bad comments about it a few years ago both here and elsewhere. The hotel must have been renovated recently. The street is nice, but as you mentioned it can be noisy.
