I stayed a the Hotel St. Roch in November 2002. I paid around 80 euros/night. My room was one of two rooms on the top floor. It had a sloped roof with exposed beams. The room and the bathroom were good size. It is right near the church and I could faintly hear the choir singing in the evenings. The people at the front desk were friendly. I frequently travel solo (I'm female) and personally, if I went to Paris again, I would stay in the Marais. I think this neighborhood has more character.

Good grief! So you've solved my mystery! We stayed at the Londres et Stockholm on two different Paris trips and were very happy there. It was a two-star (still is?). From your description, it sounds like it has grown in size and thus the name change. I am so glad to read that it is still in the same location. One of my fondest memories is hearing a children's choir practicing from our open window on the 4th floor(I think). I loved the area. There was no ac at the time. Does anyone know if they've added it? We were pretty warm on June evenings. J.

Like marilynl, I also stayed here in the 70s, on my first Paris trip in the summer of 1972. I had a room directly across from the church. Great view, but the darn church bell would ring every 15 minutes (just a clang at :15, :30, and :45, but a major serenade on the hour), usually just as I was about to fall asleep. Great location, but I'd ask for a room not quite so close to the bell tower.
