The first night our front desk person was helpless. He did not accommodate requests, wifi didn't work properly, little English. After coming from Spain where we had a great experience, France was bad as someone can expect. The room had a view to the back wall, bathroom was tiny and flooded with water every time you take a shower. We were given one key only, no leo with our bags. The elevator was tiny so 1 person goes up and one person goes down. Not coming back there that's for sure
We had an awesome experience here. The hotel's location can't be beat, steps from the Chatelet Metro stop, as well as the buzzing bars, restaurants, and shops of Les Halles. It's also an easy walk to places like the Centre Pompidou, Notre Dame, and the Louvre. Check in and check out was a breeze: the front desk attendant was very friendly and accommodating. He upgraded us to the Gold Button Suite, which was very pretty and surprisingly large for a hotel room in Paris. We greatly appreciated the strong AC in the city's heat wave. Breakfast in the morning was solid, too (scrambled eggs, bacon, cold cuts, cheese, fresh squeezed OJ, etc.). One complaint was that the WiFi was weak in the furthest corners of our room. But overall, for the price, location, and comfort, we would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.
The hotel was a disappointment in most respects; value, amenities, room size, and comfort. My first indication that all was not as expected was the elevator which would only fit two adults with NO luggage. We shuttled upstairs and down the narrow hallway to our incredibly tiny room. The furniture consisted of a narrow writing table at the foot of the bed, leaving barely enough room to squeeze through sideways, and two mineature bed side tables approximately 10 square, all made from pressboard. The bed was not actually a king size bed but two twin size beds side by side with one set of king sized sheets. There was no attempt to smooth over the resulting center seam. And as comfortable as it sounds. The courtyard outside the hotel was a major party gathering place and was thronged with people until past 1:00 a.m. both nights we stayed. We were not at all pleased with this hotel.
The hotel is conveniently located just steps away from the subway station. Setting was exactly what you picture Paris to be like - in the early 1900's - not much has changed! (Actually very romantic.) The room was very tiny, but clean and freshly painted, new drapes. Recently remodeled in keeping with the setting. Hotel staff were very pleasant and willing to speak English the best they could. Plenty of restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance.
