My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We picked the hotel based on the positive reviews and location. The hotel is very close to the Richeliu metro stop which was extremely convenient and allowed us to get around easily. We were hoping it would be closer to the Louvre area, however it's about a 15 minute walk from the hotel to the Louvre. There are also a ton of restaurants nearby on the Blvd des Italiens. The hotel itself is average--a standard size for a European hotel. Being from the US the rooms were small by our standard, but we knew that going in. Our room was cleaned everyday, had a tub & shower & a window which was nice.
The only snafu we had is on the 2nd to last night of our 10 day stay, we returned from a trip to Brussels to discover that all of the doors to the hotel were not locking and that anyone could walk into any room in the hotel. We let the front desk know and they said since it was a Sunday, they would not be able to get ahold of anyone until the next day. This was ridiculous to us, because we were expected to leave all of our stuff (which included a laptop, passports, etc) in our room unattended, as well as sleep in an unlocked room. This went on for about 40 hours before finally a manager upgraded us to a different room where the doors were locking--even though we had requested this immediately once we found this out. We ended up spending our last day in Paris packing & repacking our stuff moving it to the front desk, to our old room, to another room, etc. Nightmare! Not impressed with the customer service, but I'm sure this was a rare event.
