My partner and I have just spent a long weekend at this hotel. We have visited Paris many time and find this hotel to be as good, if not better than most others we have stayed at.
Usually they are either too expensive, too small, too far away from everything or all of the above all at once.
The location is excellent, far enough away from the tourists, but close enough to be a tourist...
It is conveniently located to the Arc de Triomphe (feels like you can reach out and touch it from the balcony) meaning you can walk there in a minute and therefore be at the top of the Champ Élysées in 5 if you walk to the top of the road, make your way under the Arc and up the other side, rather than walk around road.
There is an elevator to the metro from the footpath directly in front of the hotel which is very convenient if your using the Metro system.
If you are taking a bus to the airport, you can pick one up across the road and it is a direct service for 17 Euro per person. Alternatively, the cost of the taxi is around 55 - 60 Euro, also available immediately outside the hotel.
The hotel itself is very clean, the front desk staff are friendly and helpful. English was no problem for everyone we spoke to at reception.
There are plenty of good eating places in easy walking distance in any direction.
If you are looking for a friendly, convenient and not overly expensive hotel with good sized rooms and reliable internet (free...) this is a good option.
The comments I read about the size of the elevators are correct, they are pretty tiny, but honestly, anyone who sees that as a problem, has a problem. The staff will arrange to bring your bags up if requested.
We will definitely stay here again next time we want to have a visit to Paris.
