I have to admit that I'm a bit of a hotel snob, and was filled with some trepidation upon arriving here after a few days at the Four Seasons in London. This is far from your large, commercial type of hotel with a fairly non-descript presence (our taxi driver missed the entrance twice). When we were told only two people could fit in the elevator at one time, I really began to wonder about our choice. BUT...our attitude quickly changed. After an extremely warm welcome, we went up to our rooms (as a family, we had booked two rooms). I had made all of our arrangements via email, and they had placed us in exactly the types of rooms we had requested in close proximity. They were very nice and well-appointed rooms with the comforts and conveniences you would expect at any modern hotel. The staff was extremely kind and helpful throughout our stay, and honestly, as much as I like my Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental type hotels, I can't imagine having had a more enjoyable stay in Paris. This hotel is in an amazing neighborhood where you feel that you are really in Paris (the area where some of the higher end hotels are has become very commercialized and "touristy.") Within a few blocks we had so many cafes, bakeries, shops and even Starbucks. The Metro station was right on our corner and we could get anywhere in Paris very quickly and efficiently. The hotel's restaurant, "Le Comptoir" was excellent and hotel guests have priority in booking a reservation there. It is quite the experience and well worth the effort to get a table. I would definitely recommend this hotel and consider staying there again when we are able to return to Paris.
