“Paris - Five days in October”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Great hotel! Room was larger than expected even though we had the smallest room available with twin beds. The bathroom was large with shower/tub combination. We had a large dresser, closet, desk with chair and two other small chairs with a small table. There was also an in-room safe. The room opened onto the back of the hotel with a large open space looking at the backs of other buildings. We did not expect a view.This was very quiet and we were able to open the windows. The location was fabulous if you want to be in the 16th near Trocadero. Plenty of restaurants, shops for getting water, snacks, fruit and wine within walking distance. Metro and busses are very accessible. A short 10 minute walk to either Trocadero and the Arc de Triumphe. I lived and worked in Paris for 2 years in the late 90s. The service workers in Paris have changed dramatically since that time. They are gracious, friendly and willing to speak English. Most menus are in French and English. Americans just have to remember they are French and just don't smile as much as Americans do. As to price, October is a busy month in Paris. I looked at hotels and prices for about 4 hours on the internet before I chose this hotel. I wanted to be in the 16th. I feel I got a great price for the location and the accommodations. The only negative is the beds were too hard. I sleep on a 4 inch foam pad at home. We did not ask the hotel if there was anything they could do for us re the beds. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel. The staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Top floor, inside rooms are very quiet. There are no "good views" in this hotel.

I would rate this as very good were it not for the price! I stayed here with work at an eye watering cost of 249 Euros a night for single occupancy without breakfast!

That said the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and clean and the breakfast was ok. Not a 4* hotel more like 2-3*. The location seemed good although I was there for business nearby so didn't see any sights but it was within walking distance of plenty of bars and restaurants. I could just about see the very top of the Eifel tower from my room which was nice.

Only small gripes:
No shower curtain and screen was not long enough so bathroom flooded after a shower
Breakfast could have had more variety and been cheaper - 20 euros for full breakfast!

Would recommend so long as you don't pay over the odds!

Having recently stayed at the nearby Hotel Baltimore, we found this hotel to be considerably less expensive and more down to earth with its friendly staff who seemed like locals. Instead of the tiny rooms at the Baltimore, the rooms here are of comortable size and are nicely decorated. The breakfast was good as well.
If you are looking for a luxury hotel with full staff and amenities, this is not the place but if you want a comfortable room that is walking distance from the Eiffel Tower and Arch de Triomphe - this is your place.

I was in Paris for just one night and I needed something close to the centre, close to a Metro station and just something clean, quiet and well presented. The hotel ticked every box and was exactly what I wanted. Yes, the room was small as others have said, but come on......It's a standard now that hotels in the midddle of capital cities aren't the biggest unless you're in a suite! And the lift being small? Who cares?? It's a really nice hotel and I will definitely staty there again.

Room Tip: My room was on the 6th floor. It's a quiet street anyway but no traffic noise at all.

Location of the Hotel is great. It is very easy to approach all tourist spot and Restaurants.
The staff is very good and helpful even allowed us to check in early.The main drawback is rooms are very very small, I never expected that after one double bed there was hardly any space left.

Room Tip: Location is better !!!!

This hotel is in a great location and for a quick trip to Paris makes is very easy to see all the sites. Everything is in walking distance and can be seen without negotiating trains and buses. We arrived late checkin was easy however, the bathroom had not been properly cleaned.

Talking to the front desk they said there was nothing that could be done until the next day. Which was a little unexpected.

rooms are small but acceptable for the rate. We were only in the rooms to crash after a day of sight seeing.

If you need to get to the airport getting a taxi is not as expensive as might be expected and well worth the cost to make sure you don't get stuck on the public transport system.

My wife and I stayed in Paris at this lovely hotel for five days in August 2012 and enjoyed this hotel and Paris. Easy to walk to the nearest Metro Station or shops and restaurants towards Victor Hugo roundabout or towards the great view of Paris at the Trocadero Gardens. The staff were most helpfull and their recommendations for travel, information (tourist) & eating were just great. The room was as expected for Europe smallish but very comfortable with all plus more that you would expect. The breakfast area is small but well managed and the breakfast was very good. We would definatley stay here again.
