Stayed here in mid-November 2013 at the recommendation of a friend who has stayed here over the years for a bi-annual medical conference in Paris. Missed the drama of staff strikes and bad service I read in other reviews - thankfully! We loved the superb location - walkable to all of old Paris and its sights, except perhaps the Eiffel Tower. But the Metro is just across the street for all longer distance sightseeing. Lovely area in the 6th (St. Germaine) with close proximity to shopping, restaurants, cafes and Le Bon Marche (which, in addition to elegant showrooms, has a very convenient ticket service for advance purchase of many Parisian ventures and sights).
Hotel is a classic Art Deco building beginning to show its fading glory although the reputed refurbishing appears to be coming soon according to other reviews here. Room was large with a king bed but plain. The bathroom was good sized and modernized with a nice bath/shower combo. Clean, comfy and quiet although we had no view as we were situated on the inner courtyard - but no city noise. The breakfast buffet was delightful with a vast offering of eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits, pastries and breads with self-serve multi-functional coffee machines to top it all off. Kept us going all day on our lengthy walks all over the city. Pleasant hosting staff and a large, pretty room offering views on the outside boulevards as you enjoy your morning repast.
Hotel front staff was both cordial and helpful, and bellboys were attentive to baggage and transportation needs. Concierges pleasantly offered their traditional services and were also additionally helpful with the computers in the business area. An expensive in-house brasserie with equally expensive drinks in the bar caused us to seek out local establishments for dinner and libations - not a problem. Would stay here again after the renovations provided we can afford it then!
