Hotel Mansart has a good location near Place Vendome for high end shopping and close to metro stops and relatively near many great sites. The room was large which is especially nice in Paris. We could easily hear people in the room next door; one could see light under the door which could connect to the next room further decreasing a sense of privacy. The bathroom was updated but a 4 star hotel should not give you thin plastic plastic glasses and fairly skimpy towels. One reason we chose the hotel was because it had air-conditioning. However, they did not turn it on for 2 days and our room was very hot. We could not keep the windows open at night because the street was very noisy. We will not stay there again.
