Just returned from a 3 night stay with my daughter as a leaving school treat. Booked this hotel based on previous reviews. Maybe I'm getting picky in my old age. On a positive note, all of the reception staff without exception were friendly, polite and spoke impeccable English. The room was clean, the bedding and towels immaculate, and the bed itself comfortable. It was just a ten minute walk to the Metro. On a not so positive note there were a few areas that were disappointing. There were no tea and coffee making facilities - presumably because the room was so small there was nowhere to put a kettle! There were no English tv channels - not that I was expecting Sky - but one would have been nice. Unfortunately, whilst I realise all Paris hotel rooms are on the small side, this room was so tiny that they could not even put a door on the bathroom. It was not possible to get changed with any privacy anywhere in the room, except by going and standing by the door. The separate toilet has a door, but it is not big enough to change in there. The shower cubicle had a door, but it would be impossible to change in there without getting your clothes wet. The sink area had plenty of room to change, but it didn't have a door and is completely visible to the bedroom area. I know I was with my daughter, but this arrangement would have better suited a double room. The wifi signal was also extremely poor - I guess because we were at the back of the hotel overlooking some kind of courtyard (don't be fooled - not a courtyard that was usable), and only on the second floor. The room had obviously suffered from damp, and there was a fairly large area on the wall by the door where the paint was peeling off the wall. Finally, there was only one curtain, when it appeared there should have been two. This meant we had to try to strategically place the curtain to be able to cover the window - it was just about possible, but two curtains would have been much better. Would I stay there again? Probably not. I think I would pay the extra few quid and go a bit more upmarket. Unfortunately, as it was Bastille weekend, all accommodation was limited so this appeared like it would be good value. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing terrible about this hotel - but with a bit of loving attention it could easily be so much better.
