The largest 28 C heated indoor and outdoor hotel pools I know of. Art deco remodeled with an artsy, superbly decorated hotel. Large treatment spa with separate f/m sauna, steam bath; workout machines. Membership club for outside visitors.
For once a new hotel with easy to operate, real electric switches – even with sleepy eyes in the dark! None of these iffy sensors one has to have an IT degree to operate. Beds are massive climb-three-feet-up Nordic monsters. Comfortable but not so ideal for short legged guests. A/C worked well, up/down adjustable around 22 C. Clean, no carpet floor. Separate toilet and shower in our room. Again the shower has solid handles. None of these ipad kind of controls one canot make to work without glasses and furious tapping (Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna – beautiful new hotel but their in-room IT drove us nuts).
Restaurant is excellent, modern French fare, served by exceptionally pleasant staff. The females, that is. They also do the hard work. The men in charge appear more of the snobby, supervising kind. By contrast, hotel reception, pool, spa attendants very friendly and helpful. Roof bar with grandiose view over Paris.
Close to Roland Garros Tennis, Bois de Boulogne, Port d Auteuil, Passy with plenty upscale restaurants, shopping and markets in this bourgeois, Upper East Side kind of 16th arrondissement.
This is not one of these overloaded, snobby luxury palaces but an all round happy, affordable experience and a must for swimmers and workout, health spa lovers. Given the fact that the hotel is only open since about a month, there were few kinks we noticed.
