This hotel was recommended by my travelmate who stayed in this hotel last winter... Since it was my first trip in Paris, I decided to take her suggestion to stay in this hotel for 4 nights in mid November since it was her second trip here.
1) good location as it was near to few restaurants, near metro station, near the Lourve.
2) Clean room though it was small but we are not picky on the size of the room.
3) good service when u checked in, but don't expect any more good services after you've paid and checked-in.
4) Airport private shuttle driver that they arranged was very friendly.
1) Room is enclosed and stuffy if the air-conditioner is not operating. On first 2 nights of our stay, the air-conditioning was functioning till third night it was completely off. We went to check with the receptionist if it's spoilt or due to any other reasons. He couldn't give us a reason and said he will change the room for us next day. But then I told him it was really stuffy, so his friend, who was chatting with him while he's working, rebuked us that we can just open the window for ventilation. We were staying at only one level above the ground floor and we were concerned if any burglars would climb in if we open the window like that. Moreover, there was also a sign on the window stating to close the windows at all time due to security (I guess the security in Paris is well known for its insecurity), so we dare not open the windows since we were just 2 girls traveling. Not wanting to argue further, we endured the night without much ventilation. Next morning we went down to check with another receptionist (who was the one who welcomed us on first day) and when we asked him if he can help to check on the air conditioning, he said rudely to us that air conditioners are switched off during winter... And that's the end of our conversation. My friend who stayed in this hotel last winter did not have this problem... So I guess they change their practice? So pls avoid this hotel during winter unless you can tolerate the poor ventilation of the room.
2) Latch of the door was spoilt but we didn't make any fuss about it as we thought it shouldn't be a problem as we assumed it was safe, but it was not that safe as we thought it is. On the last night of our stay(without any ventilation in the room), there was suddenly a group of guys shouting and knocking our neighbor's door loudly. They were speaking in French which we couldn't understand but we recognized one word from their shouting, that is 'POLICE'. We've read forum that there are police scam in hotels, so my friend and I quickly switched off our lights and off the TV to make it seemed like our room is empty. We were worried if they would barge in our room since our latch was spoilt. We just stood there praying that they won't come knocking to our room, or otherwise we thought of jumping down from the windows... Luckily it did not happen. But we got no idea how the reception allowed such people to come in...
Overall to say, the price that we paid are not cheap but this is the standard of service and safety we get. If you do not mind the poor ventilation during winter, safety issue and small rooms, go ahead and stay in this hotel...
