The hotel is very close to the metro station but a huge construction project in the area muddles the geography somewhat. The hotel itself is clean through out and the rooms were spotless. Our experience was marred somewhat by our first room having lots of bugs that wrre getting in to the room via the air conditioning system. It was reported to staff, and the room was sprayed but the critters came back quickly so I requested an alternative room. Unfortunately, the alternative room was a smoking room and as non-smokers the smell of tobacco hit us hard. They provided us with a very effective spray to temporarily neutralise the smell. The sofa bed unfortunately had not been made up so for the 4 nights of our stay, my daughter and I shared the double bed. The pillows were very soft but the mattress was firm and just to our liking.
Breakfast is buffet style with everything from boiled eggs to pancakes and maple syrup. Be prepared for queues between 8-10 ish for breakfast though. They do have a very good magician/illusionist at breakfast to keep both children and adults amazed. Overall, the staff are helpful, friendly and speak English which I apprecited as my French is poor. Checkout however is a very slow process with only 1 receptionist on duty in the morning until a considerable queue formed in which a second one was bought in. Considering guests are likely to want to check out before the 11 am deadline to quit their rooms, arrangements should have been better. Double check your bill on checkout to ensure you are not been charged for extras such as free internet or mini bar soft drinks.
As I mentioned before, there is some construction work going on around the hotels environs so from 10 am or so, it can be very noisy along with vibrations.
Overall a great hotel and I will stay there again on my next visit to Paris.
