Needed somewhere cheapish and clean and not a million miles away from Roland Garros where I went to see French Open tennis (its a pleasant 50 minute walk from here which I didnt consider far). For general tourists, it is an ideal location situated 5 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees. I walked about 40 minutes to get to the Louvre/d'Orsay but its a great walk down the CE and through the Jardins des Tuilieries.
My room was large and well equipped. The bathroom didnt have a fixed showerhead but that didnt really matter too much. It was clean and airy. Free wifi is temperamental but I always managed to get a connection even if it wasnt the one they said you should get!
Staff were friendly. Breakfast is limited with no hot options but remember it is a 3-star hotel. If you like tasty French bread, cheese or jam and croissants, you can still fill yourself up.
Plenty of brasseries and restaurants are nearby with terraces overlooking the Arc de Triomphe. You really get a great flavour of Parisien life doing this as the sun sets in the Summer.
Overall this is great if you just need a base and your hotel isnt everything. Its probably one of the cheaper ones in Paris (excluding the hovels/death traps that you might get cheaper elsewhere). With the aforementioned limitations in mind, I would definitely recommend.
