“Real Parisian charm”
Reviewed 4 July 2010

A good all round hotel in a great location. Quite good value for money if you opt for all inclusive deal - this included bed and breakfast, champagne on arrival, a tea time buffet of cold meats, breads and cakes and free WIFI. Helpful service. Beautiful room (stayed in 201)- very clean and tastefully decorated. Larger than I expected having read other reviews about the small size - it was more than adequate for a centrally located hotel! Lovely balcony and double doors - Parisan charm all over! Only downside is that the air-conditioning was broken in my room and Paris was very hot at this time! They had provided a fan though although it was not as good as aircon. Collegues had rooms with working aircon so it must just be this room at this time. Worth the sticky nights sleep though as overall a very good experience. I will be returning for pleasure!

This was my third time in Paris and without a doubt the best hotel for the money. The location is fantastic!!! Close to two metro stops and short walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysee the location just couldn't get any better. The hotel itself was wonderful too. Our room was a great size for a four star hotel, very clean, and recently renovated. We were in a superiour room on a non smoking floor with windows facing three directions. the first room we were shown was across from the elevator. That one was dark without much natural light and felt cramped. Our room was completely different- filled with light and very spacious. The tea time buffet is now in the hotel itself (no longer need to go across the street) and was an awesome bonus. We could overhear some patrons occasionally complaining that it was the same every night or not enough for dinner but that was not the point of the buffet for us. The point was to have a quick snack to tide us over between a long day in paris and going out for dinner. Some cheese and meats to calm our hunger- not to satiate it! With that in mind, we loved having tea time in our hotel. The staff were very gracious and the hotel manager was beyond helpful. We were using best western gift cards from canada and when we went to pay with them they wouldn't work in his computer. he spent at least an hour (maybe more) on the phone with the international office (the paris office was closed) sorting it all out and never seemed agitated or annoyed about it. Also want to mention that the breakfast was great too. A real value. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

On arrival everything was as you would expect, plus we could check in early. The room was small but OK by Paris standards. Just 8 mins walk from the Arc De Triomphe and 2 metro stations. The food was a good standard and they did lay on a small buffet around 5pm which was good.
We stayed 4 nights and the room only seemed to get a thorough clean before we got there as we steadily ran out of toiletries and the tea/coffee supplies and had to ask frequently to get more.
Finally as we left, we had booked their airport shuttle and when it didn't turn up, they didn't seem to care - just gave us the shuttle money back - causing extra stress and the higher cost of the taxi.
Definitely not 4 star quality

Dear guest,
First of all thank you for taking time writing this comment which is very helpful to improve our service. I sincerely apologize for the problem with the shuttle which didn't came as expected and for the stress caused. As the shuttle belongs to an exterior company, we are going to contact another companies to compare their services and reliability. So, thank you again for your comment.

We stayed here for 5 days during our honeymoon. The cheaper rooms are tiny but very clean.
Breakfast is boring and not much to eat.
Overall very good experience. Would come back.

We had booked in for 2 nights over the UK bank holiday weekend. Had a newly refurbished room and the bathroom was wonderful. What surprised me was that our rate included free glass of champagne , mini bar, breakfast and can you believe even a snack from 5.30pm onwards.
The staff were excellent and all spoke english and nothing was too much trouble. I would only stay here from now on whenever I go to Paris. well done to sandrine and her team :)

We recently stayed at this hotel. We had a corner room which was large, clean and very comfortable. We were on the top floor and the view from the balcony was great! The staff were very friendly and always greeted you when you walked in the door. The Breakfast was good. Both my husband and myself would recommend staying here to our friends.
