My daughter and I just returned home after a wonderful stay in this perfectly located hotel in Paris. We were originally booked into another hotel, but due to maintenance problems, we were contacted while in Italy on our holiday and Hotel Bassano was offered . As our options to look into others was limited as we were already on our holiday, we went with the offer . So glad we did!
It was centrally located, virtually 3 minutes walk to then Arc De Triumph and Champs Elysees , 10 minutes to the Eiffel Tower, many wonderful restaurants within minutes walks, not on the Champs Elysees so a little cheaper but even better food in our opinion. If you stay there, and like Middle eastern food, try Noura, so good we went twice and also Chez Andre on Rue Marbouf.
The staff were wonderful, I don't speak French, so their perfect English was a blessing. All my questions were answered in full, leaving me knowing everything I needed for directions, catching Metro's etc. Everyone greeted you with a smile and a happy greeting and you felt it was genuine.
Now, for the rooms. Everyone talks about small rooms in Europe, so I was prepared for a tight squeeze between my daughters and my bags filling the room. Well, I was surprised. When we walked in, there was a little hall with shelves up high to store things( my shoes and our toiletries bags went there) plus a safe, bar fridge and hanger area for clothes and a large drawer down low to put clothes or whatever you wish. It had a separate toilet room, then came the large bathroom with a beautiful big bath and a separate shower.
The rooms were always cleaned early, so if you came back for a rest early in the afternoon you never had to worry about the room not being serviced, it was always done in the morning. They even had a turn down service in the evening which was so lovely, towels changed twice daily so you had clean towels for your morning showers. Everything was spotlessly cleaned, the beds so comfortable made me wish my bed at home was so inviting!
I did not consume goods in the mini bar as I bought my own refreshments from a little store conveniently located 30 seconds away literally, but they had a nice choice in the mine fridge if you wanted something.
So, do yourself a favour, this little boutique hotel is a true gem, worth what I paid, this was the third stop in my European vacation, and the best hotel we stayed in! When I come back to Paris, I won't even consider anywhere else, this was the perfect hotel in our opinion, do consider it .
The staff were just so friendly and wonderful. Nothing was a problem to ask and they made sure I understood everything. Their English was perfect which made it so easy for me.
