The hotel staff were absolutely great - fanastique - during our long weekend stay at this lovely little hotel. Having informed Zyed at the front desk that it was our birthdays, he was incredibly accommodating and hospitable and offered a complimentary upgrade! I asked for a breakfast in the room and the breakfast room waitress brought it up just as I had requested making a fab birthday surprise. The breakfast buffet was nice and French; cheeses, patisseries, eggs, fruit salad, yoghurts and some charcuterie - great hot chocolates too!
A nice quiet area, but close to rue des boulets metro meant getting around wasnt too difficult. Despite the snow and the cold we walked into the city centre a couple of times which was a nice walk, through Bastille and towards hotel de ville.
Eddy from the front desk was a star when I went down on the first morning and wanted some tips about places to go - he leant me his laptop so i could search through all the shows that were on in Paris over the weekend which was very handy.
Only recommendation is to add some non- French TV channels for English speakers etc but this wasn't really a draw back as you're not watching a lot of TV in Paris.
Overall a wonderful trip made very special thanks to the hotel - would definitely recommend and would stay again.
