Please be aware the hotel had only been open for 3 weeks when we stayed, so of course there were teething issues. But the location and amazing staff we would definitely stay at this hotel the next time we are in Paris.
Location is excellent, very close walking distance to Lafayette, Opera, Lourve and there are 2 Metro stations 5-10 mins walk away. As it is within the Japanese area, there are many cheap affordable Japanese restaurants to eat as Paris can be a very expensive city to stay in. There is a small supermarket just next door to the hotel, around the corner (5 mins walk max) there is a much bigger supermarket.
Hotel room is on the smaller side however this is the norm in Paris. Was a bit squishy with 2 of our suit cases open. Bed is very comfortable with plush quilts and pillows. Towels are very very fluffy. Bathroom is a bit squishy and our shower flooded quite a bit. We didn't mind but I did feel sorry for house keeping to have to clean up the watery mess daily.
Room was cleaned daily, however sometimes quite late (5pm) when we were already back at the hotel for a quick break. However as we were there during teething period time I am sure that is rectified now. House keeping did a good job of keeping the room clean.
New TV, however as the norm in Europe only english channels are news. Wi-fi was very weak in our room (we were on the top floor in the back corner) they did tell us that they were aware of that issue and were trying to fix it. However they had someone come up and turn on our ethernet port as we have an Apple Airport Express so that was fine. Internet connection is very fast once you connect.
We requested for a quiet room, and was given a room on the top floor in a corner with no rooms next to it. We didn't have any view as we were facing the emergency exit of the building but it was definitely quiet and we were able to sleep very peacefully. So no complaints from us.
Breakfast is the usual continental buffet. Cereals, pastries and cold meats. Nothing to rave about, you could probably give it a miss as there are a few patisseries nearby.
The staff were amazing and their friendliness and willingness to help is refreshing. Any issues that we had were fixed straight away and they were great in answering any questions we had. Reception staff were always happy to have a chat with us and could speak multiple languages.
