We had been concerned about this hotel since it wasn’t as close to the main tourism area as I had wanted, plus there had been mixed reviews about it online; but we booked it since we didn’t want to spend two nights in a different hotel before the land package that was included with our river cruise. Plus we found a great deal on-line where we only had to pay about $130 per night. The only issues we had with the room were that the bed was firmer than we are used to and it was challenging to step out of the bathtub/shower. My wife and I both have long legs, but the tub had very high sides and required one to hold onto something to prevent slipping while getting out. It was quite a step, and I don’t know how someone with short legs would be able to do it.
My concern over the location proved to be unfounded, because of the very close proximity to the Metro and RER stops. We were able to get down to the main tourist areas within 15 minutes and the trains arrive every 4-5 minutes. It was very convenient. I would probably still like to be closer to town if I came back for another visit, since we saw all the main attractions this time and would be more interested in just strolling around the neighborhoods next time.
We were quite pleased with the service we received from the hotel staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also quite good. Since the breakfast wasn’t included in the first two days of our stay, we were quite pleased that there was a mall, Galeries Gourmandes, right across the street in Le Palais de Congres convention center, where we found a nice little coffee shop for breakfast. The mall also had a great little grocery store with lots of wonderful food and drink items. Many people took advantage of the low prices for water and sodas that they could bring back to their rooms.
