Location is perfect, the hotel is just 50metres from Avenue Champ-Elysees, and that's pretty it when it comes to advantages. When I arrived at the hotel it turned out that my room was not ready for me(!) They offered me to leave the luggage at the reception and be back in an hour or later... I was going to office so I was really pissed that I could not fresh myself up a bit and I had to repack myself in the reception. When I was after work in the evening same receptionist gave me a key and said that my lugagge was taken to the room (really the least they could do). Elevator remembers building of the Eiffel Tower i guess, really small and working like it did not want to... I was almost killed (lol) by the door to the room as they automatically close and they are quite heavy and I was carrying a bag in one hand and was not prepared for such a challenge. I had to struggle a bit to get into the really really small room. Big bed, old and detoriated furniture, small window... not the comfort I would expect from the hotel in the heart of the Paris. Door to the bathroom was a joke - painted white wooden boards that also close automatically - bathroom was not clean - there were some hair everywhere and there was no toilet paper - only some small tissues... The shower cabin is really small. There is a hairdrier. There was a fridge but i had to plug it myself to the power socket... Minibar with some liquids but no prices... LCD tv with some international channels and a wifi Internet is there but that's a standard... Bedding was another mistery - no quilt and pillows hidden in a wardrobe... two sheets and a blanket on the bed.... whatever. No kettle in the room, no tea/coffee. Restaurant is another joke - there is no restaurant. There is a dining room with 4 tables (for 2). Breakfast is a table with 1 (one) baguette, few boiled eggs, few yellow cheese slices, lots of butter, jam, honey (what for? I don't know), some yoghurts, some croissants, NO MEAT, some cornflakes, there is noone to asist with this breakfast. Once you go out of the hotel they demand you to leave the key in the reception - I didn't mind but it's kind of rude a bit. During the night there were some noises coming from the above of the room - like some engine working loudly.
If you expect nothing but a roof and a bed from the hotel - it's for you, especially because the location is perfect, but I'm affraid the location is all that hotel has to offer.
