It only gets one star because the staff were on the whole very pleasant.
Check in quick and efficient. Lobby a mess with all the construction. It's like walking through a building site.
Room was a joke. Stayed for business on corporate rate. I'm used to getting poor rooms as a result, but this was another level. Tiny after thought on the top floor. Not sure anyone had stayed there for sometime. The "room" was so small I had to walk sideways between the end of the bed and the tv stand. The bed was more a giant cot with a mattress like a hammock.
The bathroom was actually more spacious but the decor was old and poorly finished. Dirty toilet. The shower was more a mist, and only heated up after a good 5 mins after which I couldn't turn it down.
Breakfast was fine. Excellent service but the room is awful. Seems to be next to a bank of air con fans so dull drone throughout.
Overall would never come back. Parisian hotels are (in)famous for small pokey tired badly appointed rooms but this was just too much. I am thinking of cancelling my booking at a Sofitel in December.
