I hadn't actually planned to stay at this hotel, but was sent here by another Mercure property that was overbooked. I was really glad to finally end up in a better location, so the time that I lost changing hotels was saved by being closer to central Paris.
The hotel is located between two subway stations and is convenient to most of the things you may want to see as a tourist. In an evening and a full day, we were able to see the Arch du Triomphe, Champs Elysee, Eiffel Tower, Louvre and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. There was even time left over afterwards for dinner!
The room itself was OK - rather small. Noise insulation is poor at this hotel - if you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. I heard someone blowing his nose in the bathroom next door as if he was in my room, and we were able to hear people above and next to us. The street noise is also considerable, and goes until very late at night until very early in the morning. Considering the thin walls, consider how exhibitionist you want to be if you decide to make your night in Paris a romantic one.
Service was as good as you'd expect in any four star hotel. The staff were very friendly, stored our bags for the day and were really helpful with directions. And, given that we paid for a hotel on the outskirts of Paris and ended up in the center of the city, value for money ended up being very good! Otherwise, the price is steep - it was 185 euros on the day we stayed, and for such a high price, better values may be available.
