My boyfriend booked this hotel for us as part of a surprise trip to Paris for my birthday and, considering he admits to 'knowing nothing about booking holidays' I have to say he chose pretty well!
Hotel Ambre is a fantastic hotel to stay in as it is in a convenient area which is in easy reach of the attractions along the Seine by metro (or foot, if you're up for a bit of a walk!)
The rooms are small but clean and modern with comfortable and stylish bedding and bathroom facilities (although our bathroom window was broken in our first room, we were immediately relocated to a much nicer room with a bigger tv- bonus!)
Also, the kitchenette turned out to be very useful even though we didn't think we would use it (but check the crockery in the cupboards- some of it wasn't clean) and having a fridge is great for keeping wine/bottled water chilled.
The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful when we needed to know the best way to get back to our hotel, explaining the metro journey and also recommending places to go such as the Sacre Coeur, which we visited on our last day and loved it!
The breakfast is basic but ideal if you like continental (which I do!) with croissants, cereal, yogurt and bread, but there is a great shop (Carrefour) just down the road so if you want more you can buy and make your own which is a great alternative (plus you can take your breakfast up to your room)
I would definitely stay here again as the rooms were quiet (we barely heard any noise from our neighbours and were so tired from our days of sightseeing that we didn't notice the faint traffic noise from the main road) and it has everything you want and need from a city hotel, and the price to match!
Thankyou for a lovely stay :)
