I have been coming to Paris annually for the past 20 years and this year, based on the reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to stay at the Danube. Iam fussy about hotels being quiet and I know it Paris it can be a challenge.
We booked a contemporary room, which was facing the second interior courtyard (there are two) as my husband prefersa shower and I like a quiet room.vIt was quiet, but much smaller than I had anticipated and the furnishings were sraight out of Ikea. Bathroom was oversized and luxurious, but we would have preferred a cozier room instead of the very stark and dreary room that greeted us. No extra tolet paper and we ran out, and also had to nearly beg for some extra pillows, which were not forthcoming until one of the maid staff interceeded.
If you are a light sleeper, and your room is on the street, you will find the traffic front Rue Saint Peres deafening.
Front desk staff was cold and very unhelpful when it came to assisitng with finding our the hours of a museum we wanted to visit which was off putting.Reception area cold and lacking a well-coming feel. Only one newspaper for the whole hotel in the morning.
Breakfast was fine, and the staff at breakfast was the friendlinest in the hotel.
I would not stay here again. When spending 240 Euros a night for a deluxe room, one at least expects a warmer reception than the one we had.
