The location is relatively convenient. It's about a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower in a quieter part of the area. The prices are reasonable for Paris standards. There is a kitchenette, which is great for making breakfast/coffee in the morning and other light cooking.
There is no wifi, which I found rather curious for a hotel in a major European city - especially an apartment hotel designed for medium-stay guests.
We made our reservations several weeks ahead of time requesting a room with a tower view. We did not get it, even though the hotel did not seem that full.
On the other hand, we arrived hours before regular check-in time (due to our airport arrival time) and they were wonderful to accommodate us early. My elderly mother was exhausted from the transcontinental flight, so getting her to bed right away was great!
The room was clean and had basic hotel amenities like electric water kettle, coffee, and tea.
We had some confusion on how to open up the sofa bed - and there were no written instructions placed in the rooms. After two requests for assistance to the front desk, a hotel staff person came up to show us how to pull out the bed, but appeared rather miffed about having to do so.
The walls/floors offer generally NO sound protection. You can hear footsteps above you fairly clearly.
The most significant complaint was a lack of prompt responsiveness to an unusually disruptive situation:
There was a child in the apartment above us who screamed and threw things in the apartment for more than six hours straight (from about 8 p.m. to 2:15 a.m.). Every once in a while, an adult male (father, I assume) would yell at the kid (I assume to tell him to stop crying and screaming). Because of the poor sound insulation, it sounded as if they were right next to us.
We were patient for a few hours hoping that the child would calm down or the father would somehow soothe the child having the tantrum. We've all been parents before. We know that children sometimes have tantrums.
But when it didn't stop by 11:45 p.m., we finally complained. (They were so loud that we were sure other rooms had complained too, but perhaps not?). The staff said they would contact security to figure out what was going on.
But there was clearly no invention. The screaming and throwing continued for another two hours. We complained again around 2 a.m. This time, I physically escorted the security staff to point out the offending unit. The screaming finally stopped about 15 minutes later. Given that we had to wake up at 3:00 a.m. for our 4:15 a.m. airport pick-up, the four of us did not sleep.
While it is not the hotel's fault that the guests were being disruptive, the staff should have intervened more promptly and effectively.
