A myriad of little details made this hotel experience very exasperating, and I sorely regret not having payed more elsewhere for a more pleasant stay. First, there is nothing redeeming about the lobby and breakfast room -- clean but ugly. Then, if you like orange bedrooms with a wall view on a back street, and red-orange striped carpet with bright indelible stains, you might not be too unhappy here. Bed: the mattress and pillows are so hard they hurt. Bathroom: no console around the sink, so I had to bring the desk chair into the bathroom to set my make-up bags on a surface...the soap won't stay put, and falls into the sink, so I had to put it in a drinking glass to keep it from slipping. The tub is very tight unless you're a size 4-6, and if you stand to take a shower, your feet are pressed together and you can't help stepping on the drain plug and closing it. Once it's closed, it is an almost impossible ordeal to try to open it up again. No magnetic card for a room key so you have to wait in the lobby until someone feels like appearing at the front desk to give you your old fashioned heavy clunky thing. I waited 20 minutes on my last evening in Paris because the front desk employee was chatting with a friend down the street and when he finally came back to the hotel, thought I would understand that he bumped into an old friend. Another evening, I was (again) waiting for someone to appear at the front desk when another guest entered, making a noise with the door, causing the employee to come out of the side office swearing in french "fait chier." I travel quite a lot, usually love staying at hotels, and never have complaints, but this was a bitter three day stay in Paris.
