I recently stayed at the Bergere for 3 nights whilst on a sight-seeing trip in Paris. Travelling from CDG airport, it was easily accessible by the RER and metro, with only a short walk between Grands Boulevards and the hotel. The area is full of bustling bars and small shops that are open late. The hotel reception area was clean and modern, very impressive. We arrived around 10pm and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. They were even polite when I was late checking out, with no extra fee levied.
The room itself was small and I had requested a twin room, but was given a double but this was no problem as I had only made the booking a few hours before arriving. The bed was comfy with clean sheets and extra pillows. Cupboard space was enough to hang a few items of clothes and there is also a safe in the wardrobe. Aside from the lack of floor space the room was decent enough - it was only lacking in tea and coffee making facilities, however the hotel does offer complimentary drinks in the reception area. Also, the view was of the scaffolding across the road and if the window is open then the noise from the street below can be quite loud at times.
The bathroom was clean, and there was plenty of towels and toiletries. My only issue was that to get into the shower you had to sort of squeeze past the toilet but other than that it was perfectly fine, decent shower with hot water.
Breakfast isn't too impressive for 12e a head, a selection of pastries, cereals, fruit and yoghurt and 'cooked breakfast' (scrambled egg and spiced sausage) but the coffee is good and the staff were always friendly, asking about plans for the day and giving advice.
The panoramic lift is a bit of a let down as it looks out only onto the rooftop courtyard which is surrounded by the hotel so no fabulous views but it is by far not the worst of the lifts! They are not for the faint-hearted or claustrophobic.
Wifi is free in the hotel, and was pretty reliable. Ironing your own clothes is not an option and is a little on the expensive side - 9e for a jumper! House cleaning come daily and towels are always changed.
Overall my stay here was very pleasant and I feel I got exactly what I paid for at around 60e per night for a decent central hotel, and would return here again.
