I researched for months on which place to stay within Paris. I settled on an American hotel because I wanted some simple comforts (please don't judge me). After researching the area, I made my decision and I'm glad to have chosen this very central location. The metro is easily accessible through 2 lines within a 3-5 minute walk.
We got off at the wrong metro stop after arriving by train, so we had to catch a taxi. He had a bit of difficulty finding the place, so that was extra money plus a EURO per bag. Whew! We learned our lesson, plan ahead. Which I didn't. Next time I will. Check in was a breeze. Our room was ready and we headed upstairs on one of the four small elevators. Our room was nice. After taking a shower, I was disgusted that the water backed up in the shower causing a pool in the bottom that took entirely too long to drain. So we requested a room change thinking it was just this room that had a plumming problem. Nope, our next room we experienced the same thing as well. Ugh! That's probably the worse experience I've had at this hotel.
Everything else was nice. I avoided breakfast, although I really wanted it, but it didn't look appealing for the price. So, the hubby and I snacked on pastries and baguettes until lunch.
If booking a shuttle to the airport, you'll need to book at least 2-3 days in advance if not more. We made a mistake with our booking and almost ended up having to take the taxi. Luckily the hotel contracts it's own shuttle and they were able to book a shuttle for our hotel transport. Lifesavers! If back in the area and looking for a decent hotel, I may consider this hotel again because of the location. I hope you find this review helpful.
