My husband and I stayed at the Alexander Melia Hotel during our Christmas holiday in December. We were there for only 2 nights, but loved our stay and would definitely consider returning during our next trip to Paris.
We booked the hotel through Expedia Unpublished and were very pleased with the result. The hotel is in a great location - very close to the Arc du Triomphe and Trocadero. We travelled to and from the hotel using the metro, but the hotel also provides a shuttle service to the airpot (I believe that the charge is 18 euros per person). It was easy to access with our luggage by walking from the Victor Hugo station.
The staff at the hotel are very kind and all speak English very well. Check in and check out were fast and efficient.
Everything about this hotel is very small. The rooms in the hotel are very very very tiny, but we had expected this prior to our arrival. The elevator was probably the smallest that I have ever seen - my husband and I are both fairly small people, and we could barely both fit in the elevator together with our suitcases (and I am not exaggerating!). They only have the one elevator and we didn't encounter any problems, but I can imagine that it could be inconvenient and frustrating if several people are needing to use the elevator at once.
With that being said, the rooms are clean with nice decor. They feel very "Paris-y" - they are very quaint and classic. The windows open up and we had a nice view from our room. There is free Wifi available in the rooms as well.
One complaint about the hotel is that it could be very noisy at times. At about 8:30AM each morning, we could hear housekeeping talking to each other (although it sounded more like yelling) and vacuuming the hallways and cleaning other rooms. I realize that most people are probably awake by 8:30AM, but it still seemed quite early to me to start cleaning. It's too bad that there isn't better sound proofing between rooms.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to other who are visiting Paris.
