We stayed 3 nights and were upgraded to a "prestige" room. Very pleasant. As usual with Paris hotels, room was small, but bigger than many other hotels. Room itself was very well furnished. Very quiet at night. Lots of "goodies": tea, coffee, safe, plenty soaps, shampoos, dressing gowns and slippers. Staff very pleasant and efficient. Very near to Luxembourg RER... More
