Spent a couple of nights here last week. Excellent location, very close to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees and on a nice quiet street. Metro station a couple of minutes walk away. Room on the 7th (top) floor. Liked the interesting décor and quirky features. Fabulous huge bed. Faced the street at the front but didn't hear any noise at all. Not a good arrangement with the technology though - switching off the lights in the room meant the plug sockets also went off so couldn't charge our iPhones overnight - tried everything! Room clean although all the mirrors in the bathroom weren't cleaned very thoroughly - hard with mirrored walls though I guess. Breakfast service on day one wasn't good - very slow, waited ages for anyone to come and take our coffee order. Bit confusing - some people helped themselves to the breakfast whilst others just ordered everything at their table. Disappointed with the pastry selection though - croissants were small and a bit crispy. Expected better in Paris! Second day service was excellent despite the restaurant being just as busy as day one. Overall the service and friendliness on reception was excellent. Easy access via the Metro to all the sights, be warned though - The Louvre is closed every Tuesday (I missed that bit in the guide book). Huge queues at the Eiffel Tower - an hour to get to the second floor and a further hour to get to the top. Recommend lunch at Café de Flore and a trip to La Grande Epicerie at Bon Marche. Maybe the hotel should order their croissants from there!
