Reviewed 13 April 2014

This is a comfortable hotel in a good location next to St Lazare station. Superior room was spacious enough (for Central Paris). We weren't over the moon about the black decor but ymmv. Serve yourself breakfast 23 Euros in a cramped cubby hole -- we went across the road to a brasserie for breakfast. Distant rumble of the metro didn't bother us -- you'd have to be ultra-sensitive for this to keep you awake. Courtyard room was quiet. Room safe unusable on arrival; reception promised someone would come up to free it; they forgot.

We paid a lot of money for a decent sized room in a convenient location and we were satisfied, but it has no other advantage.

Important: if arriving by metro or RER exit at the Cours de Rome exit.

Room Tip: Courtyard room essential (to avoid road noise)

Great hotel in Paris. Very trendy and the reception staff were excellent. Stayed for business and would definitely stay again. If possible, try to get a courtyard room, not one overlooking the main road.

We stayed for 4 nights in a lovely room overlooking the Rue de la Pepiniere. The rooms are elegant and clean with a large bathroom with walk-in shower, heated towel rack and robes. The king sized bed was very comfortable and we slept well each night. The room also had good air-con, a Nespresso machine and free WIFI. We found the staff to be all very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely bar where you can sit outside overlooking the garden courtyard and enjoy a glass of wine.
The location is excellent for walking to Gare Saint-Lazare, Boulevard Haussmann, Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, Palais Garnier and Place de la Concorde. There are also many restaurants and bistros nearby.

Lots of black - very much a boudoir ! However staff friendly and very helpful - very clean and comfortable. The area is fine - busy - but the glazing is amazing and blocked out all the street noise.
We would use this hotel again - and for Paris it was reasonable value with lovely Claris toiletries .. Starbucks very close which was handy for wifi which in the hotel was very slow.

I was lucky because my room was ready early and so I was able to work from the room before my meeting - Free wifi very easily set up for both laptop and phone at the same time and good signal strength - no issues. Good size desk. . Modern style decor - lots of black marble in the bathroom - not bath just a big shower - perfect for me, and a good size room for Paris - Nice guy on reception and I was pleased he kept speaking French to me even though his English was good - how will I learn otherwise? I had a deluxe room, courtyard view so it was extremely quiet - you could forget you were in central Paris! very close to Gare Saint Lazare and you can walk to all the "grand magazins!" I walked from the Roissy bus stop at Opera - 5 minutes.

Room Tip: courtyard room is quiet - nice fountain and an alligator statue for some reason!
