Arrived at this hotel for a 2 night stay late one evening. BE AWARE many Parisian taxi drivers know the bar not the hotel, and I waa dropped off at the bar, fortunately it is not a long walk and shoes were comfortable..
The entrance of this hotel is a feature in itself, with red lanterns suspended from the ceiling. Check in was painless and the staff were amazing and very helpful. The rooms were decorated in red and black, and though my preference is for light airy space, it worked well..I especially liked the utilities which were mainly in black. The restroom facilities are the most technologically advanced I've seen in a hotel. With heated toilet seats, in built bidet system into the toilet, it was truly an experience and easy to figure out. The bed was large and comfortable.
This hotel scores high for gadgetry, the blinds were all switch controlled and that made it easy with the high ceilings. The building of the hotel is beautiful and maintains a lot of its original features including a lovely spiral staircase by the reception. As expected from the Buddha chain, decor includes several Buddhas strategically placed.
I've scored the location slightly lower because after 5 taxi rides it became apparent that no-one knew where it was, and its a bit of a trek to the nearest Metro.
The bar is a lovely and staffed with very friendly and capable staff, who were able to provide a cocktail for me which wasn't on their list (always a point scored for that).
Would I stay again? well there is a lot of 5 star competition in Paris so cost would determine. As I've done it once, I don't feel the need to do it again.
