I used to stay regularly at this hotel and decided to visit again. Experience taught me that single rooms are dingy so I booked a double. Was given a single. At reception they insisted I had only booked a single (confirmation says twin or double). Room changed to a 'double' at the back so no daylight. Paris very hot but opening the window not an option as extractor fans outside made a maddening noise. No antibird nets so pigeon attempted to come in the room on Saturday!
Room next to lift so I could hear it on every journey. Shower approx 24 inches square and difficult to access due to sink and toilet in close proxmity. Impossible to move in it without causing injury so I gave up and just washed (also dangerous due to lack of space).
After about 3 hours sleep over 2 nights I checked out and had to show booking confirmation again to prove my rate included breakfast.
Back to my normal hotel in future where the shower is twice the size of this bathroom and doesn't involve mountaineering.
Moral is don't book other than via hotel website.
