We stayed at 6 hotels over 11 days in France. This was the first of our stay and we felt at home.
We stayed a total of 3 nights at this property. We took the Opera bus from the Airport (10.50E per person). From the bus stop, it was a 15 minute walk to the hotel. It was a bit tricky to get to with luggage, narrow roads, and the traffic.
*Great location. Just north of the central Opera area. If you love to walk, you can be at the Louvre in 30 minutes. It took us 45 minutes one day to walk to the Eiffel Tower.
*A couple blocks away from Gare Lazare (Metro Station)
*Close to shops and restaurants (Subway was next door if desperate)
*We booked the L'Open Bus tour and one of the stops is down the street from the hotel (used this as transportation for 2 days)
*friendly staff. One of the front desk staff was so helpful in suggesting restaurants and transportation options (a gentleman who worked the night of June 14 and 15).
*Rooms were smaller than we are use to in North America but very clean and comfortable
*Daily maid service
*No A/C so at times could be uncomfortable. They offer a fan and windows open
*No irons (no hotel in France offers irons so pack neatly)
*Sometimes satellite not available when watching tv (If English speaking, you are out of luck; only French channels)
*Had to leave our key at the front desk every time we left the hotel (staff were trustworthy but I lock my suitcases no matter where I stay)
*bring your own wash cloth. All France hotels only provide bath towels and hand towels.
We really liked this hotel and would definitely stay again if visiting Paris in the future.
