stayed for 3 nights in july, booked through easyjet as a package which was easy enough and experienced no problems, VERY reasonably priced for being so close to the Madaeleine Church (beautiful and central to most points of interest in Paris) arrived and were greeted nicely enough although the receptionist did comment that it was great to see an American who could speak French well ( I am English...) and was confused when we stated that the reservation was under a certain name (he said did not exist) when we said was it under a different (EXACT same surname but my friends fathers forename) we were told of course, they had our room ready. Were informed our twin room was no available that we had requested but were to be given the best room in the hotel, not a problem for us but could easily be for others not comfortable in sharing a bed with a friend. Arrived to the 'best' room on the 6th floor from the elevator which was more like a box, to small typically parisian room, found burns on the floor and a questionable whicker bed, which was easy to laugh about but hardly 3*. Bathrooms are tiny but obviously recently renovated with power showers (lacking power) and well stocked with toiletries, our toiler however, did not flush without 'pumping' the handle around 20 times, very inconvienent. Did not have breakfast any day even though it was included as viewed the breakfast room our first day to find by 8am nearly all the questionable food had vanished and was not our cup of tea! would recommend breakfast at Fauchon the deli to the back of the church in the corner of the square which is lovely. Maid came daily which was unexpected and very lovely, safe was in our room and easy to use, TV in our room had british channels and everything was clearly written in good english for those who do not speak French, hotel gladly watched our bags after we had checked out and only had problems with the elevator once when it stopped on every floor on its way down, possibly another hotel guests idea of fun, over hotel was sufficient, and location is superb, would maybe consider staying again if rooms were upgraded or burned carpets replaced :)
