Fabulous service and in a perfect location for a Paris vacation.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, metro station across the street, air france from airport stops across the street
We found this hotel as part of a package deal and were a bit nervous because you never know quite what you are getting on an internet deal. However, we couldn't have been more pleased. We stayed there the last week in June 2011 and it was wonderful. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable (ask them where to find the best crepes or the neighborhood chocolatier) and quite accommodating. The head concierge actually walked us to a neighborhood restaurant to introduce us to the head waiter and told him what kind of crepes he had recommended to us. Hotel views are fabulous - our balcony looked right over L'Arc de Triomphe. It is located in a quintessentially French neighborhood and although there are hotels in the area and it is near a major tourist attraction we did not feel as if we were in a tourist spot. Shopping in the neighborhood allowed us to experience the "real" Paris. It is a very quiet area and the rooms are quite comfortable. The location is also perfect for a Paris vacation. The Metro station is directly across the street and we were able to access everything quite easily. There is also an RER station and an Air France bus stop at the hotel intersection. Don't waste your money on taxis or airport shuttles, even if you have a lot of bags. The Air France bus was only about 20 euros and the stop is right across the street. Great restaurants in the vicinity - don't miss the Italian place across the street, the pizza is amazing! In short, if you are looking for the perfect place to stay for a fabulous vacation, this is it. Bon voyage!

Great location!

My family was in Paris for the Paris Marathon and desired a location near the start and end of the run. This was a wonderful hotel with a perfect location for seeing the sites by walking. The rooms were clean and quiet. The staff were most helpful and courteous. Definitely will stay here again, and recommend to friends.

Excellent Hotel and Location

The hotel staff were extremely friendly and most helpful. The breakfast, especially the Fench Croissants, were the best that we have every had anywhere and is a must try for every visitor. The rooms were really good, although small, we found it very pleasant and clean. The hotel is within walking distance of restraunts and just a hop away from the Champs Eleysee, and also close by for many hop on hop off bus tours. The price is on the high side although the good memories more than compensates for this. Overall we loved our stay here and recommend a stay here. Make an attempt to speak French, be polite and remember you are in France and so show some respect for the country and culture, and people will help you out.

Pleasure to Stay

I personally found the staff excellent. They responded to my questions in a very polite manner. The bar staff at evening were gererous with their measures and the staff at breakfast time provided you with whatever you asked for. I was stunned by the view from our room - magnificent. I had read a lot of reviews stating that the walls were thin - THEY WERE RIGHT. My only fault was inconsiderate neighbours who did not trust one of their kids with a key so every 20min there was a knock on their door - most anoying. I will stay there again as a FIRST CHOICE. I had heard a lot of negative reports on the rudeness of the French staff and the filth of the city. I did not find that at all.

Bad Bad E-toilet

Booked this hotel based on all the positive reviews on tripadvisor, boy were we disappointed! It was completely NOT worth the money we paid per night. The front desk staff were RUDE. We had booked a room with a double bed. But the room we were given had two twin beds and were extremely small. When we requested to switch to one bed, the front desk staff replied that they could change our bed to one bed. We were happy but we returned in the night and found that they had not changed our bed to one bed but instead had used one sheet instead of two. When we talked to them again, they said we either deal with the two twin beds or we had to move to a room in the back facing the courtyard. Our room had PAPER THIN WALLS. We could hear conversations from neighboring rooms and people walking around and opening and closing doors. In the morning we would hear loud noises coming from elevator and kitchen. The door had no dead bolt or chain link. MAID WALKED IN ON US once while we were sleeping. Bathroom was extremely small and sink drained poorly. The shower water pressure would change depending on usage in other rooms so the WATER TEMPERATURE COULD CHANGE FROM VERY HOT TO VERY COLD as we were showering. The hair dryer handle would get so hot that I needed to wrap it with a towel in order to continue using it. The AC IN OUR ROOM DID NOT WORK AT ALL. One night we found the staff were trying to pry open the ELEVATOR DOOR WHICH GOT STUCK WITH PEOPLE INSIDE !!
