we stayed here because of tripadvisor reviews and location. the hotel is super convenient to several metro stations but is walkable from any location in the 5th. they have an elevator which is really nice considering how many floors they have.
Nicolas was very helpful before we arrived and on checkin.
we arrived at our room just after cleaning and the chemicals they use to clean were horribly stinky. we had to leave the windows open to get rid of the smell.
they do not offer pillows with the bed, just the roll that will kill your neck. you have to ask for the pillows which is odd since i'm assuming everyone wants a real pillow. we got back to the hotel around midnight and i had to go down to reception in my pajamas to get the pillows. i wasn't really happy about that given how much money we paid to stay here.
still, the bed was comfy. the room was really warm. we supposedly had one of the large rooms and i'd hate to see what the small rooms were like. we barely could walk around each other to get to and from the bathroom and our bags.
they really push the shuttle service from the hotel to the airport. i highly recommend that you do not use that service. we were promised to be the last stop prior to leaving for the airport - untrue. we had the rudest driver on the planet - not a fun way to start the day. do yourselves a favor and take the RER.
for the location and comfort of the bed, i would stay here again.
