When booking a hotel in Paris for the first time we were looking for a hotel within 5 mins walk from the Eurostar station and had a set budget so opted for this hotel. When leaving the station from the main entrance turn right and the hotel is just up the road.
Bed was comfortable
In room safe for passports etc.
Large TV – Only CNN in English at the moment; but still useful if you like to keep up with the news.
An assortment of toiletries etc in the room which included soap, shampoo, body lotion, shoe sponge and sewing kit. Also a couple of mini chocolate items left in the room for Easter which is a nice touch.
A vending machine in the lobby with snacks and soft drinks if required.
The breakfast area by the lobby has been updated from the photos with the tour operator and looks nice. Continental breakfast only; but fine for us; items included; cereal, hams, cheese, yogurts, fruit, bread/rolls and jams, croissants, juice, tea and coffee.
There was only a shower room/toilet (prefer bath) which was very cramped and the shower head needs de-scaling.
The room was very warm and even in April we only needed a sheet at night and there is currently no air-con or even a ceiling fan so in the summer when it is hotter it would be difficult to sleep.
Walking distance – 15 mins to Sacre-Coeur and 45 mins to the Louvre or Notre Dame.
We would stay again; although I would check if another tour operator had a different room grade.
