I've stayed in at least a dozen hotels in Paris over the years, and this was hands down the worst - particularly at the price they were charging (300 euros? Are they serious?). Or, that is, they charged some people in the group I was with 300 euros. Others paid 200 for an identical room, simply because, the concierge said, "it's like that sometimes." Rooms are too dark to read in, and so small that the desk doesn't have a chair - it has a stool that tucks under the desk, because if you try to take it out from under the desk and place it in the space between the desk and the bed, it won't fit. In other words, you can't sit at the desk. There are no drawers. The walls are so thin you can hear the guy snoring in the next room. One light in the chandelier was out, and despite two requests to replace it, the staff never did. A lamp on the desk serves only decorative purposes: if you want to plug it in, you have to unplug the TV.
And this, mind you, is what they call a "superior" room.
As for breakfast - don't bother with that, either. On a Saturday morning, there were three occupied tables. The others were empty - except for the dishes that had been left by previous guests and not been cleared. My waitress served my breakfast without asking if I'd like coffee and without clearing the dishes from the table around me; I simply moved the dishes myself and left, and had a very nice petit dejeuner at the brasserie down the street for six euros -- less than what the hotel charged, and the bread and croissant were fresh, not -- as at the hotel -- two days old.
There are some very nice hotels in Paris. For 300 euros a night, there are some extremely luxurious hotels in Paris. This is neither. Pass.
