Lorette at the front desk was very patient with my requests. The breakfast staff was also very helpful and nice. The breakfast is very good. I have recommended Left Bank to several friends (at least 6 - who have stayed with you) over the years. Do think "face towels" in bathroom would be a nice addition. If I return to Paris (this was my 4th stay with you-97,98,01 and now 13) I would stay again. Location is excellent for convenient and good restaurants, shopping, and great sightseeing!!
