I also felt back for not writing the review staying at Elysee and wanted to thank the young men working tiredlessly at the front desk. This property will take you back in time when mere mortal could not afford such luxury.. The Lounge there is what you find in country clubs if you have never been a member of one. The furnishings are probably the last you will see of that era and only will find at this hotel.
The only one caveat was that II was planning one night stay, but prior to booking I written to the manager to confirm to me via email if I will have a room with balcony and if confirmed then I book 2 nights, but if cannot be confirmed then I was going to book only one night.
I received a pleasant email from the manager confirming the room with balcony, but upon my arrival and even though I had confirmation and even though the room with balcony was available I was placed in the room without balcony because the rooms with balcony were held for other guests. My room had no view and was dark. I thought that it was unprecedented.
I am only giving this hotel 5 stars because this is the only remnant opportunity of going back in to the past and finding yourself in rococo a style of decoration refined with its elegance.
