We chose this hotel having seen good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Although we paid for a standard double we got upgraded to something called the Veranda deluxe, or something like that. We were on the top floor , our room had a bedroom area and then a raised annexe with a glass roof with a table and chairs, making it feel like a suite. The bedroom was well lit, with reading lights on an adjustable stem, and the bathroom lights were like daylight so not a shock to the eyes when half awake , like most hotels. The bed was comfortable , and although I like to have a bath-tub, the shower was adjustable to a comfortable temperature, so it was fine not to have a tub. On the first morning we had the breakfast buffet and just for a change had hot chocolate instead of tea or coffee. The buffet was the usual yoghurt, fruit salad, cereal and selection of breads and pastries. You could boil an egg but the water level was quite low so you had to turn the egg.
The staff at reception were welcoming, friendly and effecient . The decor in the reception is attractive and elegant
as are the staircases and bedrooms The hotel is very near the Arc de Triomphe end of the Champs Elysees and Metro stations, as well as being a short walk from the river.
