This hotel is very centrally located and perfect if you are in Paris for a short stay and need to be able to access the sights easily. We were travelling with another family and between us had four children so this hotel was a good option.
The reception and public areas are impressive and had that old Parisian charm.
We arrived at 4 pm and our rooms were still not ready. This was annoying and by way of an apology we were treated to a bottle of champagne.
The rooms were adequate, clean but dated. I was disappointed that we did not have a view and on enquiry was told that this would have been possible if requested at the time of booking and an extra service fee paid.
We had arranged for breakfast to be paid as part of our booking. The first morning we had to wait for a table. The food included pretty ordinary fruit compote, the usual continental cheeses and meats. The cooked breakfast was lukewarm and tasteless. The redeeming part as the lovely pastries.
The staff were quite helpful. The bellhop made a big effort and the concierge was good, the let down we're the breakfast staff who obviously didn't communicate with reception and asked us to sign off for the per paid breakfast twice.
The location certainly redeems this hotel.
