I hed to spend a night in Paris and was nearly put off this hotel after skimming through some scathing reviews. It was in the location I wanted so I went back for another look. The criticisms were posted some years ago and more recent opinions matched mine.
While the rack rate was ludicrous the price I paid was very fair for a good night's stay in a central location. Rooms were average size for city centre hotels, Reception staff were very friendly (well, 2 out of three anyway), bathrom was good and I had a small balcony with chairs. Hotel car park just next door.
