The fact that this hotel has an absolute fantastic position as it is just one minute walk from the stop of the roissy bus that will take you to and from charles da gaulle airport, it is of walking distance from most of the places in paris and has a really close metro stop (place de l'operà) would justify the costs for the room. It has however great rooms, very spacey for paris' standars and really clean.
Only black spot would be the bathroom, since the toilet seat is located in a separate "room": the reason why i'm placing quotes is that the "room", is actually a door that leads in a very small recess where you find the toilet seat and that's it; no sink, no washing cloth, no nothing... everything else is in the real bathroom.
Also room-to-room soundproofing wasn't optimal: once our neighbors came we could hear every single word they were saying.
We did not try the breakfast since it came out at 40€ per person and for that price you could easly buy 20 croissants and 20 cups of coffee to drink along the day. Also prices for mini-bar were out of this word ( bottle of water came at 8 euros)... and in every other 5 star hotel i've stayed they have the courtesy to put out complimentary water each day. It can be the best hotel in the world but no matter what water should be complimentary everywhere.
Staff was nice.
