This was my first trip to Paris. My boyfriend took me for Valentine’s Day and I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in an amazing location with gorgeous views of the Eiffel Tower. We arrived later in the evening so by that time it was dark but the Eiffel Tower lit up like a candle on a cake visable from the hotel. When we checked into the hotel the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Spoke very good English and were very happy to help us out with anything that we needed. They did take 100 euro deposit from us so be aware of this if you stay here as we were not aware of this but we did get it back when we checked out. As we had arrived late we were hoping to eat in the hotel’s restaurant but we were informed by the reception staff that it does not open on a Monday so we went out to find some food (maccy ds just down the road!) Once in the room (classic room) we found it was very modern and stylish however very small and there were a few little things that could have been fixed before having someone stay in the room. Part of the wooden floor near the bed had become raised so we kept tripping over it on the way to the bathroom. Also the ceiling in the bathroom, part of it has started to come away but nothing that was dangerous or put us off our stay. Just something we think would have been nice to be fixed as it would put some people off staying there. The bathroom was lovely, had a very large shower and filled with courtesy Radisson products which smell gorgeous! We loved the fact they also provided dressing gowns and slippers (in the wardrobe) very comfy!The mini bar was stocked with drinks/snacks however very pricey! Unfortunately like most things in Paris! There was an iPod/iPhone doc and coffee machine in the room which was a very nice touch. Huge flat screen tv on the wall however the only channel in english was bbc news but no issue to us. We stayed for 2 nights and had breakfast both mornings (included in the price). They give you a selection of mini pastries, fruit juice and tea/coffee. Very small portions but if you do fancy something hot then you can order something from the menu which will cost an extra approx. 8-10 euros each (again small portions). We also visited the pool/steam room in the hotel which we thought was to die for! Very classy and up to date. Towels and changing rooms provided. A great way to relax after a long day walking round all the sights before going out to dinner.
Overall because of the hotels fantastic location and very nice staff we would definitely recommend this hotel if you are going to stay in Paris.
