I visited Hotel Arioso last spring, and I loved this hotel. I have stayed at many hotels in Paris, and if you are looking for less expensive options, stay at Hotel Arioso! The service was great, staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was great and it was included in our rate. The room was small, but clean and very cute. We even had a balcony! The view wasn't much, but it was a nice size balcony to enjoy the Paris air and just chill a bit. It provided extra space for lounging. The bathroom was a better size than most of the hotels I've stayed at in Paris. It was spotless and laid out well (you're not leaning over the toilet to wash your hands!). Great shower. The location is good, not the best you'll find, but if you are looking for a great deal in Paris, you will not find a hotel this nice in Place Vendome. It's very easy to get around, about a 10-15 min. walk to Champs Elysee, 15 minutes to Opera/Place Vendome. I love this hotel and would recommend it to anyone!
