I usually go to Paris once a year for a clothing indulgence, and this year I wanted a leather jacket, so my hotel had to be cheap, central, and within paces to Rue Faubourg St Honore. I'm fairly familiar with Paris as well, so after arriving at 9am at Gare du Nord, I got a Metro to Gare du l'Est, and then another to Pyramides, which left me with a 5 minutes stroll to the hotel. It's on a street between Rues Rivoli and St Honore, so that's about as central as you get without moving in to the Louvre itself. The hotel is perfectly located.
Museums: the Louvre and Orsay are right there.
Sights: Arc De Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Seine, Jardin Tuileries
Shopping: Champs Elysees, Fauboug St Honore, Madeleine, Opera, Au Printemps, La Galleries Lafayette, St Germain, St Dominique, George V
It's all there!

Lovely hotel close by to the main tourist attractions and train. The staff couldn't have been more helpful . The room was small but impeccably clean. The TV was not working properly- We were informed by front desk that the system was new and kinks needed to be worked out. Would definitely recommend this hotel in central Paris
We stayed 8 nights in early November. The Expedia rate we obtained was quite good, however, the hotel did not give us the room that we had booked, and which they had confirmed. We did accept the room they gave us, even though we thought it might have been smaller. The hotel location near the Louvre is excellent for visiting the whole city, we easily walked the entire city core. The hotel staff were excellent. The hotel is nicely decorated and, overall, quite comfortable. We know from previous visits that Paris rooms are generally quite small, but we found this one to be too small for comfort, particularly for a longer stay. The hotel could improve the functionality of the room, despite its size, by simply putting in more shelves and hooks.... And a larger trash can...
The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room comfortable and the breakfast in bed tasty and prompt. Under 10 minutes on the metro from Gare du Nord and convenient for all the sights of Paris, and for the Marais district, which is a short walk away.
By the Tuileries gardens on the Seine’s Right Bank, the Louvre museum dominates Paris’s cultural heart. Exclusive boutiques line Rue St-Honoré and Rue de Rivoli, and a shiny modern shopping mall occupies the old market of Les Halles. The 2nd is the finance and theatre district, containing the Bourse (stock exchange) and the Comédie Française national theatre. Châtelet–Les Halles station is the city’s biggest and busiest transport interchange.
