The hotel is very sweet and exactly what you imagine when you think 'Parisian' hotel, with a particularly nice courtyard area. We booked a Superior room and the staff were kind enough to allow us to have 2 children (4 and 8 years) in the same room with us which saved us from booking two rooms and spending even more on accomodation. I consider the price (230 Euros a night not including breakfast) quite steep for the standard of the hotel (which is 3 star) but the location is amazing! The district is very quiet (I saw many embassies and consulates as we walked around) but very close to everything, including the metro! We didn't use the Metro, however, preferring to walk everywhere. The reception staff were really lovely and helpful, however, the breakfast staff did not speak or seem to understand English which lead to many miscommunications and incorrect orders! In itself, this wouldn't have been a problem, but they were not at all friendly and did not share a smile with us in the two days we were there. Housekeeping was, likewise, not particularly friendly (not even a 'Bonjour' as we plassed in the hall) which is a shame as the front desk staff try hard to create a friendly atmosphere. I would stay in this hotel again and recommend it to a friend but mostly due to the location. I'm not sure it's rating as 3rd most popular hotel in Paris on Tripadvisor is warranted (at least it was at the time I booked) - generally I expect more from a hotel rated so highly on Tripadvsor.com.
