From our original review:
Situated on the narrow, frenetic rue de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter, the two-star Hôtel Les Argonautes was quite the economical and artful eyeful! Quirky from top to bottom, the hotel was chock-full of eye-popping art, three-dimensional wall murals and an eclectic collection of flea market finds.
The hotel’s 25 small rooms were outfitted with well-worn wooden desks, headboards and cabinets, along with wooden beams, frescoes and brightly colored linens. When it came to amenities, this place was decidedly no-frills.
Some rooms shared toilets down the hall, though all rooms came with at least a private shower. Private baths were functional yet dated, and equipped with hair dryers.
The hotel was full of charm, but of the “shabby chic” sort. The location is bustling with lively bars and restaurants, the bells of Notre Dame and tourists—all eating, praying and loving till the wee hours of the morning—so light sleepers should ask ahead for a room in the back of the building or else pack ear plugs.
