(each paragraph are starred, which is my rate about that particular item.
Needless to say, this is my preferred choice if I am not in an adventurous mode.
We had 4 people and stayed two nights (2 rooms). On our second day, we found out the other room had a bigger bathroom, so we had our room changed.
** (2/5), only if you got the wrong room
Our original room had a pathetic shower. The shower itself is 60x60cm (2'x2'), but the shower knob is dead centered and sticks out about 15-20cm (5"-7") when in use. Which makes occupy-able space about 60cm x 40-45cm. had to avoid leaning on the the shower curtain to avoid water from spilling outwards and when I shift forward I would bump the knob and turn off the water (which happened twice during each of the 2 shower I took). - avoid rooms ending in 15 (ie 115, 215...)
When we had our room changed, we had a tub, which immediately fixed the above issue and felt dumb for not complaining about it sooner (the bathroom was also twice the size). Pick rooms ending in 21 (ie 121, 221)
inner facing windows - most rooms windows does not provide any views, they are clearly only there to provide sunlight and air. Not an issue for us.
The room is clean, even though it is carpeted in dark blue, it looked and felt pretty clean.
** (2/5), again only if you're not in the right room
Doors are thin, so you can hear the next door shutting and the chatters in hallway, for us it did not bother us as the hallway was generally not occupied and they weren't loud, but this can become an issue if the passerby are loud and obnoxious.
Price is fair compared to some others I've stayed in Paris
Convenient, 10 minutes walk to LaFayette, 5 to Saint-Lazarre Train Station (car rental and all)
Hospitality, they are great and willing to loan their assistant in anyway possible.
On a side note:
Of the 2 trips to Europe this year (22 days, 8 cities, 8 hotels), I have came across with nothing but pleasing to host receptionists / concierges / doormen.
My previous visits were at least 3 years ago and the improvement of Europe's hospitality in the hotel industry is truly remarkable. I would dare say that they are now parred with what one would expect in Asia.
Perhaps this is because I've learned to select higher rated accommodations from TA, or the Europe hotel industry have came to realize that if you're generally nice to the guests, they will likely be nicer to you too.
Anyway, if only this were taught to the local department stores staffs...
request for rooms with proper shower stand size (or a tub)
