The Good: We had a superior room (#13) which was quite large. We were originally sent to the Classic room by mistake and there is a big difference in size between the 2 rooms. The superior room was large and clean. There was a very large closet with room for luggage, ironing board, all our hanging clothing and 3 shelves. More room than we needed! There was a separate room for the W.C. near the door. The bathroom was large with 2 sinks, a shelf above the sinks for toiletries and a rolling shelf for other items. There was a tub with a handheld shower attachment.
The room had awesome electric room darkening shades. They were great except that we ended up sleeping much later than intended because the room was so dark. A nice problem to have on vacation!! There was a large flat screen t.v. which I don't normally care about except we did manage to watch a little World Cup Soccer. There was a hotpot with coffee and teas, a mini fridge and safe. Our room faced the street and was quiet.
The air conditioner was great.
There was a very nice breakfast buffet. Coffee, juices, cereal, fruit, ham, cheese, scrambled eggs, sausage and breads. The croissants and pain au chocolate were wonderful.
Many French hotels don't have elevators so we were very happy to have one, albeit small.
The staff was wonderful. I made a mistake on our reservation and ended up with 2 reservations. They were able to rent the room and did not charge me for the reservation (which they could have since it was in their policy). The gentleman at the front desk during the day (I wish I could remember his name) was extremely helpful. We asked for a dinner recommendation and reservation and it ended up being our favorite meal in Paris. They helped us with reservations each night, ordered our taxi for our early morning departure and offered advice and information throughout our stay. When it was time to leave, the other gentleman helped us with our luggage.
Last time we were in Paris we stayed near Notre Dame. We were a little worried about changing locations. However, this location is fantastic!! Just a stroll to the Eiffel Tower and around the corner is Rue Cler. Lots of restaurants, markets, cafes, etc. Metro stop is not far away.
THE BAD: The only negatives I can think of is that there was no clock in the room. Not really a big issue because we used our iPhones.
They only had 1 key. 2 keys would have been nice as there were a few times when my husband and I were doing different things (me napping in the room and him out and about). You need the key in the room in order to turn on lights etc.
The bed was too hard for me.
BOTTOM LINE: The worst thing about this hotel is that we were only there for 4 nights.
