Which room is best at La Familia in Paris?

My fiance and I are staying at La Familia this October (on this forum's reccomendation). Can anyone who has stayed their in a room with a balconey and great view remember their actual room number? I'd like to call Eric to confirm our room and make a request for a particularly pretty one . . . thanks in advance!

I should have reread my message - I meant to write "stayed there", not "stayed their." sorry for the quick typing!

I haven't stayed there, but according to the book "Cheap Sleeps in Paris"
room #52 has a balcony with a view of Notre Dame. Rooms with balconies are said to be on the second or fifth floor, facing the street.

That's the room - #52 at the top of the stairs. According to Eric its the best room in the house. We stayed in that room our first stay at the Familia. While it was really nothing special - it did have a balcony with a small table and two chairs - again very small. But cozy enough for two people to share a bottle of wine and some cheese and watch the sunset. Just don't expect a suite at the Ritz.

What Lori said. We just stayed in room 52 last May. You can read a review by searching for "Paris Trip Report" (though you may want to scroll through some of my longwindedness).
