On arrival to this hotel we were a bit shocked at how close the hotel was to the train lines, but sure you wouldn't forget they were there because you could hear them ALL DAY AND NIGHT which was just the first problem we encountered. Our room was so small we genuinely couldn't squeeze past each other if the bathroom door was open, there was no natural lighting and our view? Was of other people's windows. Being on the fourth floor the window looked out onto a courtyard of about 1m squared and as there was 3 floors above us no natural light got through. 2 lights didn't work in the room which was already dark enough considering!! The tv had some channels one day and then they knocked off the next and the 'high speed internet' was so slow that we used 3G the entire time. The sheets weren't changed, the safe didn't work and the bathroom door was so creaky that instead of opening it in the middle of the night we had to leave it open so we didn't wake each other. The only redeeming quality was the staff, they actually were really nice and helpful, the night staff in particular were good craic, and booked us taxis and transfers to the airport. The breakfast was continental but outrageously dear at €15 a pop, but it was okay. Would I stay at this hotel again? No Would I recommend it? No
Would highly recommend this hotel it's staff are very helpful and made us feel very welcome. From the moment we arrived it was memorable experience would go back again. The hotel is in great location with a huge selection of cafes, restaurants and shops access to buses, taxis and trains. Definitely worth a visit
The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice. From the bus stop outside the hotel, bus number 31 takes you in 10 minutes to the arch of Charles de Gaulle Etoile, from where there are underground communications everywhere. There are a lot of good family restaurants in walking distance, but remember that most of them are closed on Sunday, so then you have to eat near the arch and take bus 31 home. What I really loved with this hotel was to get a portable and complimentary gadget that gave us free 4G wifi everywhere in Paris, so this time we did not have to find a McDonalds in order to update our emails.
I really can't speak highly enough of the staff in this hotel,they are extremely helpful and frendly.the hotel is in a great location,there is ample transport located on the door step and plenty of restraunts and shops close by.the rooms are a little small but clean and modren.all in all I would recommend this hotel and will absoutly look at booking here when we return to Paris again.
Perfect trip from start to finish! Reception staff very helpful and friendly - especially Alexander he was amazing he made our stay that bit better! Alex explained the city and wrote down what busses/metro's we would need over our stay. Room good size, comfy bed and very quiet, we looked out over a side street so no traffic noise. Bathroom nice and the towels were always fluffy (which is lovely to come on holiday and have towels as fluffy as your own back home) they are also big not like other hotels where the bath towels are tiny! Room cleaned daily with fresh towels and toiletries replenished. Hotel is in a good location. We got the bus numbers 30 and 53 which took you to main metro stations €2 per ticket. The metro stations are also easy to use and all have landmarks sign posted so you know to get off at a certain stop. A day ticket for the metro is €7.50 fab if you intend to use more than one metro per day. All in all a fab trip to Paris.
The staff are lovely, the rooms are nice, we stayed the beds are so comfy you wouldnt want to leave, we stayed in 207. There's local buses running, a train station just outside and a metro station about 10mins walk. There are a few restaurants near by too. The metro is so cheap, waaaay cheaper than London. The 31 outside takes you straight to Champs Élisées where the Arc de Triomphe is. And just further up the road where the metro is, is the 54 bus which will take you straight to Moulin Rouge and near to Sacré-Ceur
It's a very good hotel especially that was my first visit to Paris I like the hotel, location which is near to many cafes and market and near to the bus and underground stations, also it's near to the city center rooms, service and the great staff
Location was perfect to reach some of the most visited tourist attractions in Paris like Sacre-Coeur, Concorde, Gallerie Lafeyette etc. Hotel lays just 2 mins from Pont Cardinet station (Metro 14 from Saint Lazare Station). But we didnt recognize the hotel at first because the signed was kaputt. The room was very cold. We adjusted the temperature to no avail. Although they advertise it to be a 4-star hotel, the rooms were very small. In fact, the carpet on the side was missing. Room near the main street is a bit noisy but bearable. We had no towels on our last day because they had no delivery, they informed us. We had at 8 in the evening after we called about the temperature. Reception is very friendly and accomodating.
We liked the service and the location very much. You can reach the metro and trains very good and quick. Furthermore it is located very central. Unfortunately the cleaner forgot to clean the top of the carpboard. So the guests, that stayed at our room before us, throwed their rubbish on the top. All in all i liked the service, the rooms were clean. We had a balcony(!) and the price was good for the conditions in paris, because in paris everything is expensive. I can recommend this Hotel!
Room was a good size and nice lighting. Bit shabby with the card control which had a missing cover so couldn't work the lights initially. Carpet missing by bathroom. Apart from that it was sufficient. Bed was comfortable and room temp was good. Bar in the room was really pricey so avoid using. Really nice restaurant around the corner.
