“Perfect Position”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Lovely hotel in a very good position just a few hundred yards from the Metro (Melia) and not far from the tower , nice rooms not overly large but well decorated and clean, my only compliant would be there was no tea making facilities in the room, Our breakfast was included but if you paid separately it was Euro 26 per person. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

What a GREAT location! This is a nice enough small boutique hotel. Our room was nice with windows opening onto the lovely garden below in the courtyard. The robes and toiletries are first rate (as is to be expected in Paris!). All well and good but what you are paying for is the amazing location. Not only is this hotel convenient to so many of the places which makes Paris wonderful, but it is also just across a bridge from the underground which means one quick change of trains and you are at CDG airport. Very convenient.

Room Tip: You might ask to see the room possibilities before selecting at the hotel. The staff is very accomm...

We loved the location, we were really pleased to see how close the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Élysées were. The moment we arrived to when we left we felt very much at home in such a spotless clean hotel. The reception staff were so pleasant and give us great advice on travel, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paris.

Had a lovely weekend staying at the Melia Royal Alma. The welcome was warm, the room very nice, if a tad on the small size, especially the bathroom. But we could not complain about anything as it was very well run. We always think that the best service is "invisible", where you only notice is something isn't right. And it was invisible here.
The location is superb. A short walk from the Champs Elysee and a Metro station within 2 minutes. The hotel, being a small boutique, doesn't have a true dining facility, but provides breakfast and a bar. But with so many dining options available, it is not a problem.
It is not cheap but you are in Central Paris and it is worth paying a relatively small premium.

We were force to upgrade because a standard double room was not big enough to hold a cot. The premiun room was mediocre with 2 single beds and matresses pushed togethed and two sets of sheets folded in separately.
The cot hardly fit the room.
Breakfast was not included in the steep price and costed extra each day.
View from the window was terrible, facing the back of another building.

This is a reasonable 4* hotel with a great location! Easy walk to Eiffel Tower and most other sites!

Small, intimate, good and very friendly staff. The room was clean and tidy. I've stayed in a lot worse!

Breakfast is nice which you can take inside or in the glass house. Usual continental breakfast but disappointing English breakfast selection (not that you come to France to eat like an Englishman!)

Would we stay again? Yes!
