The Hotel du Cygne is a two-star cheapo standard, a budget-friendly pick with a super convenient (some would say “sketchy”) location just two blocks from the Les Halles Metro stop.
Pros: Clean, well-equipped rooms. Very convenient location.
Cons: Street-side rooms can be loud. Lively neighborhood may seem sketchy to some.
The Hotel du Cygne is a friendly, old fashioned hotel with a great location. The building was constructed in the late 17th century, a fact that has its pluses and minuses. It allows for wooden beams in six rooms, thick walls and charming touches, but also means smallish room dimensions and no elevator.
The 20 rooms are pretty-ish and comfortable, although un-fancy. Think cream walls, wooden paneling and ho-hum yellow bedspreads and curtains. Double-paned windows should keep out much of the street noise. (As the area can be lively at night, especially on the weekends, light sleepers should ask for a room on a higher floor or one of the twins facing the courtyard.)
About those streets: While we find the area around the Cygne to be "lively" and convenient, others may find it simply sketchy at night. Rue St-Denis, a favorite for red light establishments that would make your mother blush, is right around the corner. However, you're in the very heart of Paris. Be smart and it's all quite safe.
All rooms are equipped with a flat-screen satellite TV, telephone, safe and free Wi-Fi. And all rooms (except two cheapo singles) have a small private bath, equipped with a shower or tub and hair dryer. (The two cheapo singles share one bathroom.)
Downstairs, a street-level lounge with stone walls and wooden beams offers a friendly welcome. Head through the small courtyard (with its swan planters) to the charming and cozy breakfast room (served for a reasonable €8).

About the Hotel Du Cygne neighborhood
Located to the west of Châtelet, the area surrounding the Louvre museum is an art lover's playground. The quarter boasts grand Haussmann-style boulevards leading to the gold dome of the Opéra and the banks of the Seine. The quarter's biggest draw is the Louvre museum and the Seine-side Jardin des Tuileries.
