We stayed in Room 103 at Le Magellan for 9 days. The room IS small but it has large TV, bedside tables & lamps, desk, telephone, closet with PLENTY of hangers (unusual in many American hotels!), and a large window overlooking the lovely COURTYARD.
But, there is no room fridge & no air conditioning. Could have used both as it was quite hot & humid during our stay. The compact bathroom has toilet, bidet, sink, bathtub (with built-in laundry line), and a small, wall-mounted hair
The front desk staff are helpful, the kitchen staff is very cordial. The breakfasts are basically all you can eat: baguettes, croissants, pains au chocolat, pastries, bread for toasting, cheeses, cold cuts, eggs, fresh & dried fruits, butter, jams, honey, FRESH orange juice, carafes of coffee served with small pitcher of hot milk, tea. We often skipped lunch because we could have such an ample breakfast!
Le Magellan is a small, charming hotel. The lobby & sitting room are nice, you can get drinks at the bar, the location is near the Palais des Congrès, and several Métro stops; the neighborhood has good restaurants & cafés.
So, why would I NOT STAY THERE AGAIN?
Before, during, and after breakfast -- and at all times of the day or night -- people went into the courtyard to smoke. I'm allergic to smoke & it aggravates my asthma. And it was too hot during our stay to keep the window closed, so, lots of cigarette smoke came into our room.
