I "overnight" in Paris on a regular basis, and have done as a Europe wide business traveller for years. I love Paris, its my favorite city in Europe, by why am I so often dissapointed with the hotels. I accept that on the whole they are of more "compact" proportions than hotel in most cities in Europe and the US, but its not the small size, its the mean and minimal standards that lets them down.
Thank goodness then for the HPR. Truly a joy of a small hotel in a fantastic district - with everything on your doorstep.
You are greeted at a real reception desk, with professional and courteous reception staff. I was a little before check in time, but after a prompt phone call to housekeeping and a few minutes sat waiting in their bar area, I was presented with my room key and escorted to a very nice Deluxe room on the second floor. It was clean, bright, modern and fresh decor, and a comfortable bed -albeit two singles pushed together, but then like the minimal space around the bed - its no more than you come to expect.
The bathroom however more than made up for that. Full size bath, glass shower screen and curtain so the floor doesn't get flooded from the good size and performance shower head. Thers's a large, well lit mirror, an illuminated shaving mirror, good set of toiletries and a quality towels and bathrobe....I'm very happy and can now get on with my day - which I should add is made all the easier by the free of charge Internet access, so thats already a saving of €25 a night you can deduct from the room charge.
It was more expensive than I would normally pay for, and it was 10 minutes extra out of my way, but the location, the internet access included and sheer pleasure of a comfortable nights sleep...I know where I'm staying next time when I'm in Paris. My only reservation wth giving it a 5/5 review...is that becomes popular and I will never be able to get a booking! :-)
