Ranked #6 in Tripadvisor? COME ON! The hotel might have a nice patio where you can enjoy a quiet breakfast; it is also located in a convenient area if you like jogging (so you can do it along the river or around Luxemburg Gardens) or like to stroll up and down Saint German Boulevard, or perhaps discover the Pantheon. That's the positives we found, but when you're discovering a city, having heavy baggage because you're going to enjoy a long trip and are discovering a new city, therefore you walk all day, you need a nice room, that's pretty much what you need at the start and at the end of your day.
So, let me quickly describe the classic room: it is ridiculously tiny, as much as that two people cannot walk on the same side, only one slim person can do it with difficulty whereas the other will have to step up on the bed to give way to the other. I felt asphyxiated; thank God it had a window. The beds is composed of two single beds joined together, but as the beds have wheels, then there is no way the beds stay in one place so they move all night which can cause insomnia and back pain. Ah!, the pillow is so tiny that your head hardly covers its size, so great for neck problems!.Also the tiny shower let the water sprinkle all around, so better remove the toilet paper and bin first.
What a horrible experience, fortunately it was only one night. 275 euros and we spent a terrible night; and the next day as beautiful as the patio has been described for other members, the breakfast is not nice, we had coffee and assorted basket of bread, but not of good quality. Very very disappointed!!!
