The worst thing about our stay was that the water was shut off of two days between 10am and 5pm. There is only one elevator and we stayed on the 12th floor, so taking the steps was kind of out of the question. This single elevator is very slow and God forbid that it goes offline for repairs.

The room we stayed in had been refurbished to a very good level. It was very clean and tidy if a little compact. The staff were helpful and friendly. My family and I would gladly return to the Evelyn.

Large room, comfortable bed, complementary coffee and cakes available in the morning, best location for most touristic sites and close to metro station. Overall positive feedback, but dome concern about the ability of concierge.
