“Excellent find in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We've tried quite a number of accommodation options in Paris over the years, but this one is by far the best for the price. The rooms are well appointed and the bathrooms are quite big by Paris's standards. The staff are wonderful and friendly and speak excellent English. The location is great, especially if you are in Paris to shop, as you can easily walk to the famous department store, Galerie Lafayette on Bld Haussman.
The breakfast was excellent, offering a lot of choices and they have a real espresso coffee machine, which my husband was very happy about. (France isn't known for making a good coffee, especially compared to what Australians expect these days).
The hotel is set off the main road too, so you don't get any street noise even if your room is on the road side.

We stayed here at the tail end of the trip our only regret was we wish we had chosen it at the beginning as well. Rooms are spacious, clean and they offer a great breakfast! I would make this my first choice again next time I am in Paris.

This hotel was simply wonderful, We stayed for 8 nights and had a beautiful experience. Fantastic quiet location yet easily accessible. A short walk to the metro, Place de Concorde, cafe"s, restaurants. The hotel is clean, stylish ,cozy and comfortable. Fantastic breakfast , attentive professional staff. This hotel set the tone for a wonderful Paris vacation experience. We felt like it was our home. Thank you to the staff and the organization. When we return this will be our first choice.

Room Tip: Beautiful hotel, just enjoy

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel on August 2011.It was very nice, clean and very near of the centre of Paris.We took a big walk (15km) and could reach all main atractions of Paris. If possible ask for a room located to the front of the Hotel or you will see only a building evertime you wake up.

We stayed here for two nights and were very impressed by this hotel. Though small, it had everything you could need, including a great location. It's minutes away from Galerie Lafeyette, Place Concorde and the metro. Breakfast was included and had what we would be looking for. The rooms are a little small, but more than enough space for us. We were a family of four and had booked one room with 4 beds. However, there was some sort of mix up and we learned the day before our arrival that this room was not available. However, for the same price we were provided with two rooms right next to each other. Even better. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely consider staying here again.

I will continue to stay here. I love the location. Breakfast is good. I love their petit pain au chocolats. Too bad I was given a bathtub this time as this was a bit dangerous to get in and out of. What I requested was not honoured and I was told by Alexandre that I could change the next day which I didn't want to. Lataetia was awesome and helpful. Rooms are small but this is Paris. The chocolats were a nice touch upon arrival. This is still my favourite hotel in Paris!

We stayed with one other couple for 2 nights for the finish of the Tour de France at the end of July. Location was very good - close to the metros and within walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. Room was small, but we've stayed in Paris before and all rooms are small. We paid £125 a night with breakfast included which we all thought was excellent value. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
