Stayed here with my boss this week on business and we would definitely stay here again. Everything about the hotel was perfect.
Where to start. The location is excellent with a Metro station, Richelieu Drouot right outside. The big shops, Printemps and Galeries Lafayette are a short walk up Blvd Haussmann and Auber RER station is right by here, with the Opera Garnier opposite. This end of Blvd Haussmann is fairly residential and high class so expect to pay appropriate prices in the nearby restaurants and bars. Cardinale on the corner was very good and busy with locals so it had to be good. We ate at a nearby brasserie and had a superb steak frites with pepper sauce for €13 each. Beers locally were around the €4 mark and all restaurants now have 15% service included (prix net, service compris).
The hotel staff were extremely efficient and friendly and spoke good English. There is a small bar which didn't have draft beer and the bottles were €7 a time! Breakfast was included in our rate and was the usual hot and cold buffet but they also made omelettes and poached eggs on request. Again, good quality but unless it's included in the price of the room, I wouldn't bother.
Finally, the room. I had 210 which was not large, but had windows opening on to a quiet side street opposite the offices of le Figaro newspaper. The bed was extremely comfortable, although the pillows were a bit soft. In the bathroom, there is a separate room off the main bathroom for the toilet and the whole thing is done out in old fashioned French style right down to the shower which didn't quite work. Beware of the temperature control on the shower, it is the same scalding heat at 50 degrees as 20 degrees and takes a bit of juggling.
Absolutely perfect Parisian hotel, hard to beat.
