We have stayed at this hotel three or four times and always appreciate the warm welcome the staff shows everyone who comes through the door. Our son and his family, who were staying elsewhere but met us in the lobby of this hotel for an evening out, also got a friendly greeting on arrival. The rooms are furnished with antiques and most if not all have lovely fireplaces (Not that I've ever seen a fire in any of them). The one we had this May was smaller than those of previous years which was a little inconvenient for a three-night stay but we worked around it. It was on the first floor so the metro rumbling was perhaps more intrusive than would be the case higher up. The hotel is well-kept and beds are comfortable. The neighborhood is varied, with lots of places to eat nearby, including the award-winning Boulangerie Vandermeersch across the street, which is not-to-be-missed. Breakfast at the hotel is sufficient, but not extraordinary. We sometimes have breakfast at one of the cafes down l'avenue Daumesnil. The Bistro de la Porte Doree, up the street and around the corner has an exceptional set dinner menu. The Porte Doree metro stop is a few feet from the hotel door. Underground there are about 6 exits from this stop. Exits #1 and #2 are the closest to the hotel - I think it's #1 that comes up just by the hotel. There is a street market on l'avenue Daumenil on at least one day a week. The Bois de Vincennes is just up the street, providing a beautiful place to run, walk, sit, picnic and chat. All in all, it's a fun location, away from the business of the center, but still easily accessible to it.
