Five nights in a triple room, my kids (12 and 9 yo) and myself. First time in Paris and we found the location of this hotel great. Nice good walk along Rue Lafayette to the metro in Opera (RER A here takes you straight to the door of Disneyland) or there is the Gare du Nord to the other direction if you were to take RER B (straight to Charles de Gaulle airport). All other means of transport accessible around this hotel , also surrounded with lots of cafés, restaurants, a Starbucks, a McDonald's , lots of shopping places, and a stone's throw from place de l'opera and academie nationale de musique.
Facilities in the hotel were fully functional. There is a safe in the room, a fridge, a TV, the bed seemed like a king size bed or are we just too small, I don't know,., it was nice and comfy and the pillows were fluffy and European (square shaped). The doona (fluffy comforter/blanket) was also nice and soft and warm. The room was quite spacious, given that this is Paris we are talking about, and I like the street view from my window.
There is a bath tub, which is also a bonus , most three stars don't have tubs. But the shower head was portable and it always wriggled and eventually leaked to the floor if you're not careful.
I found the breakfast too expensive for what it offered. 15 euros but there was no hot food selection ie omelettes/sausages/bacon... So most times we walked to Starbucks and spent our breakfast money there, it was better value for us.
The receptionist was very efficient but they did not seem to have a separate concierge? I am used to hotels having a dedicated concierge, this is an invaluable service.
Overall, I recommend this place to my friends and will be my first choice of hotel whenever I am in Paris.
