“Tiny and unfriendly ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The owner of the hotel is available at the front desk and she doesn't smile at all. The rest of the staff had a glimpse of smile on their face. However the owner was not welcoming. Great guy at the front disk at check in and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. Very tiny rooms. They walk in the room even if you have disturb sign on the door. Not reccomnded at all

Everything in this hotel is small but very stylish and comfortable. My room was very clean and I enjoyed being able to open the windows. I found it a little bit weird that you are not allowed to keep food in your room.
The street is loud and the walls are paper thin. I heard the guy in the room next to me sneeze on a few occasions.
Front desk staff is far from being warm or friendly but she is helpful and knowledgeable.
My priority is always the location and in this case I was not disappointed. I was there to visit Paris and I barely had to use any mode of transportation other than my feet. There are shops and restaurants all around the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

My boyfriend surprised me too a trip to paris which I was amazed by. Paris itself is amazing but the hotel also added too the surprise. It's a unique boutique hotel, he told me all the rooms were differently designed, our room was shades of browns and creams with a gold feature ceiling which was lovely. The bed was big and very comfortable. The maids tidied our room every day and shaped my nightdress into a bow which was cute. Great location as it's not on a busy high street so you haven't got any traffic noise, especially beeping!.. close too supermarket and restaurants/cafés/bars, about 10 minute walk too the Champs-Élysées Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast in the morning was lovely, fresh orange juice and food. The lift is small and only fits 2 people but it added too the cuteness of the hotel.

The hotel was nice enough to keep my suitcase the day before our scheduled check-in as we were heading off to Mont Saint Michel. Our room was small but it didn't really bother us. I loved that our room's main shade is white. It made the room look bright and chic. Our room faced the street but we weren't bothered by the street noise. But we could clearly hear the people in the neighboring rooms whenever they were using the bathroom.
The bed was big and comfortable.
During our 3-night stay there, we concluded that the two people who have excellent customer service skills are the hotel owner and the front desk guy with longish, black hair. The others were neither welcoming nor friendly.
During our second night there, we bought some food from the nearby grocery with the intention of having dinner in the room. The hotel owner was behind the front desk that time and when she saw our shopping bags she informed us that we couldn't eat in the room. But she said it in a nice way and even advised us to eat our store-bought dinner in the breakfast area of the hotel. She even set the table for us and had the front desk clerk clean up afterwards. We were pleased that she turned a potentially uncomfortable situation into a nice dining experience for us.
We took the airport transfer service when we checked out and it was a smooth and stress-free ride to the airport.

The only thing smaller than the room was the lift which held one person and the bags or two people. If you are overweight cancel the bags or another person. Some of the staff were great however the majority were inhospitable and rude. A fuse blew in our room and it was all about what we had done wrong and how much of an inconvenience it was to correct. In the end we got our power back but not without sensing what a inconvenience we were for a very expensive few days.

The rooms are so very small. The elevator is fit 2 people and one suitcase, assuming that neither person is very big. We had the Rodin room. It's very small. The walls are paper thin and you can hear people urinating in the adjoining room. The door between the bathroom and bedroom is a sliding door with a gap of about an inch, so privacy is not to be had.

The shower leaks all over the floor. There is a gap between the shower screen and the rim of the tub. Management knows this; I pointed it out to housekeeping who just rolled up a towel along the edge of the bath, which is how it was when we checked in.

The room could not be smaller. If you have more than one suitcase...good luck.

The upside:
The bed is big and comfortable.
The orange juice at breakfast is delicious (but not 15 euros for continental breakfast delicious.)

The location is great. That's what you are paying for. The decor is shabby and the bathroom grout black. It could use a make over. This hotel has potential. I'm glad we got a bargain. The regular fee for this room is 310 euro a night; we paid that for two nights.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room. We got a room at the back with no view. It was still noisy due to the thi...

Only 5 mins from the Champs Elysee, the staff are very helpful, the rooms small but have everything you need. Breakfast is simple but fresh and very well done. Even the mini bar seemed to be more about guest's convenience than an extra way to make money.

Room Tip: The lift is small - so the lower the better!
