The hotel is situated about 50m from the Arc Du Triomphe (at the top of the Champs Elysees). Great location. The hotel is basic - but clean and friendly efficient staff on reception. The rooms are in reasonable condition. Overall - good bargain at £80 a night via www.expedia.com.
Good things about the hotel: location, location, location. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced mini-bar. Good flat screen TV with good channel choice. Clean room and cleaned well each day. Safe facility in bedroom. Opening windows and air conditioning.
Bad things about the hotel: small rooms (but not tiny), tiny bathroom, no bar in hotel (but heh - the hotel has various bars etc round it). Unusually there was some damp in the wardrobe - slightly odd given 5th floor. The bathroom door wouldnt close - but I forgot to report it!
Would recommend: Use the Air France bus to get there. Picks up at each terminal and is 13 Euro return - and only stops one stop before the one in next door street to hotel. Use the Croissanterie on the road outside for breakfast (2 croissants and 2 freshly squeezed OJ for 8 Euro). Use the batobus (river boat) to get around - thats fun and cheap. Went to 11.30pm show at the 'Lido' (short walk from hotel) which was fun, but the girls timing left a little scope for improvement - but the show was still good entertainment - with a ice skating rink, dancing horses and a egyptian pyramid and lots of boobies! Just needed to get your head into 1930s France.
The 'Pauls' bakerie about half way down the Champs Elysees sells yummy cakes and croissant. Also went to Mandala Ray - off a side street on Champs Elysees which is quite striking restaurant owned by Jonny Depp and friends. Good food and good night out.
The hotel gets some overlybad press (other reviews). Go with an open mind and use it as a base and you will enjoy.
