Travelling with two kids aged 6 and 3, husband and 70 year old grandparents a hotel was never going to work - not to mention be prohibitively expensive. So, this seemed a sensible choice as we could have the family apartment (3 bedroom). Before we arrived the communication was great and they assisted really promptly with all requests and info and sorted a taxi from the station etc. The location is great - about 5 mins from 'Jasmin' on the metro and near lots of local shops / restaurants, including a wonderful bakery just next door. We did not see much of the hotel staff but you don't need to and this adds to the feeling of being in your own apartment rather than in a hotel. The rooms were all a good size and comfy (if not with slightly mad wallpaper/curtain combos... but hey) and the girls had a great view of the Tour Eiffel from their bedroom - good fun at night when it lights up.
The room was serviced every day (except Sunday) and the kitchen, whilst small, had nearly everything you could want. Only room for 2-3 people to sit and relax in the lounge/dining room on the one sofa but not really an issue - just chucked the kids out.
We were on the 5th floor and the lift is - by some margin - the smallest I have ever seen but you only really need the space to get the bags up and the receptionist helped so wasn't an problem.
The apartments were very warm and we could not seem to control the heating - but it was February so rather that way than cold!
In terms of local amenities, the tube stop is pretty convenient to get most places surprisingly quickly. There are lots of nice delis and a Poissonerie etc nearby. We ate at the Pizza place next door but one on the first night (arrived late, wanted something quick) which was fine but quite unbelievably expensive. The second night the grown ups went to the Mouton Blanc which I thought was a great typically French bistro and within a 5-10 minute walk.
All in all a great find and whilst quite pricey probably cheaper than the alternative (3 rooms in a hotel). Would recommend.
