We stayed at the hotel over the Augsut Bank Holiday. The Hotel Sign did not give us the best impression, it was supposed to be a lit sign but no lights were ever one while we were there, and part of the sign was broken. On arrival the receptionist was less than friendly, took our reservation slip and gave us a key to the room on the 1st floor. Stairs very narrow and the lift was barely big enough to fit two of us with bags. Although the room was comfortable enough and reasonably clean, the shower door was half hanging off and as a consequence water sprayed out onto the floor. The hotel is allegedly in a quiet street off the Champs Elysees. We did not find this to be true. The road is a link between two very busy avenues and although the balcony windows were double glazed, the street noise was horrendous, starting very early in the morning with scooters and trucks roaring along. The street itself was also not very clean and we saw several drunks lying on the pavement in the early evening on all three evenings. Breakfast was very basic - we were brought a tray with a "grunt" from the member of staff, and on one morning we obviously got a second-hand tray because the plates and serviettes were floating in water. When we asked the receptionist (it was never the same one) for some directions to a local shop we wanted to visit, we did not get any help, and found all the staff (apart from the cleaning lady) to be unhappy looking and unhelpful. Perhaps it was because they were having to work over a bank holiday - who knows? When we left on the Monday there was no "au revoir, smile or thank you". This was our first visit to Paris, and we had been told Parisians were not particularly polite. We did not experience this anywhere else other than in this hotel. On the plus side it is ideally located for most of the sites, and the room was adequate, but we would not stay there again.
