A perfect place to go discovering Paris. Close to all the fashionable boutiques of Paris and near place vendome too. Besides you just can stay in the hotel and relax for a very nice evening between the spa and some coktails. Room is very OK and confortable.

I chose the 'solo traveller' offer for 190 euro/night. I got a ticket to le Louvre and a river Seine cruise with glass of champagne included. My room was quaint, and a good size. It was on the first floor. Unfortunately there was no aircon/fan and to open the window would bring in a cloud of stale cigarette smoke, extinguishing... More

Stayed here in late June and had a marvelous stay. The location across from the Jardins des Tuilleries and minutes from the Louvre is ideal. Our room was nice and spacious and was U shaped which allowed for a bedroom area and a seating area. The buffet breakfast is delightful with a great array of choices. Nice to also have... More

Great location, close to everything. Metro is across the road and is easy to use. The Tulieres is across the road. The rate online was good when booked in advance but "walk in rate" is too high. The WIFI didn't work for first 24hrs but then was ok. The air conditioning was broken but portable aircon was provided. Didn't use... More

I travel all over Europe for work so I understand that the standard of European hotels is different to that in the USA and the charm and beauty of the city or country ames up for the little quirks that come with EU lodging. HOWEVER, nothing could persuade me to leave a good review of this hotel. While the concierge... More

My husband & I just stayed at this hotel for 4 nights very recently. I must say that the hotel was great for our needs! We got there by taking the RER and the metro (we even had lots to carry!) My husband was so happy to see that it was right across from the Tuillerie metro line and the... More

Had nice loft room with view of the very Parisian courtyard which we liked. The rooms could do with renovation but still thought it was a nice space. The concierge staff are outstanding! So helpful and friendly. Housekeeping also great. We liked the central location with access to all main sites and easy access to metro taxis etc. The hotel... More

I was staying here and once in the morning almost at 7am was a terrible notice. I was on the 1 floor and in front of my windows workers were throwing garbage into the container.

Great location. 5 minutes walk to the Louve. Subway line 2 minutes walk from the hotel door. A few other attraction within walking distance. Hotel rooms and bathrooms were clean. Spa and pool area clean. Enjoyed the Steam-Room. Hotel staff were all pleasant and willing to assist.
