Firstly, it's always a gamble to check into a hotel that is totally new to you. The decision for me to choose this hotel is mainly due to it's location. Well, it turned out to be a very good decision and Paris visit is even sweeter for first timer like me and family,
The hotel is newly renovated, the guy at the reception is excellent, speak English and very helpful. He placed us on the 4th floor and as we all know, there is no elevator. Looking at the staircase which is narrow and I'm horrified by looking at our luggages. We made our way up by negotiating 73 steps! To our surprise, the gentleman at the reception actually helped us with one big bag and clearly out of his breath. It was a great gesture and very helpful of him.
The location is superb, near the subway and the La Fayette shopping mall. Making our way to most of the main tourist spots are easy as subway system are the same in most of major cities. Restaurants and convenient stores are at the door stop and most importantly the quality of the food is surprisingly good.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel and price wise ... It's so so only.
