i stayed one night at the hotel because I was intrigued by the concept - a Le Corbusier hotel squeezed into three stories of one his most famous buildings.
The owner who dealt with my check in gave me the impression he was harried and over-worked which doesnt make the weary traveller feel at ease. He shuttled between the bar where he served coffees and beer and the magnificent Le Corbusier reception desk where he handed me my key with barely a smile and left me to find my way up to the room the floor above. For 135 Euros I would have liked a little more attention and less tension, Why do so many French people working in tourism behave as if the guests/tourists/customers are a necessary evil and make it so blatantly clear that your presence is more than a little inconvienent ? As someone once said to me, many people in France think that service is servitude and hence perform with a sneer and a whine.
Oh well, the room was fun with lots of original features as was the rooftop open only to guests after six pm displaying a magnificent sunset but otherwise, well 135 euros deserves a little more attention these days.More
