“A great oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a smallish hotel with nice and clean rooms, very modern and functional. Breakfast is simple but effective- don't expect a five star buffet but it works.
Staff are helpful and friendly and I've stayed around 39 times so I probably know it by now.
There is not an evening restaurant but don't let that put you off- they are frequently overbooked!
It's nice and functional and serves a great purpose- being comfortable at night!
Paris has so much to offer it would be a criminal offense to eat in a hotel restaurant for dinner!

Room Tip: executive rooms on fifth floor are great!

We enjoyed the stay at the hotel and the excellent and friendly treat from all the team at the reception. The hotel is located in a safe area of the city with easy access to local shops, cafes and public transport.
We would recommend it as good value for money.

Room Tip: We had two rooms facing the street but we didn't hear any noise during the night.

Pros: nice hotel and very clean. Housekeeping is on top of things, providing fresh towels and toiletries daily.

Cons: We asked two separate times for two beds in the room before our reservation, but only got one.

Most of the staff seemed to have trouble understanding English and did not know much about getting around the city or anything else tourists would want to know.

Rooms are tiny, but that's to be expected.

The shower has no shower curtain, only a glass partition that covers maybe 1/4 of the space, so the whole bathroom gets wet when showering. (I have never seen this in any other hotels I've stayed in throughout Europe)

All-in-all, the hotel met our needs, but I would probably look somewhere else the next time I'm in Paris.

I stayed here for work and was very happy with this hotel. When I arrived, I unexpectedly received an upgrade, so had a very large room compared to my colleague who did not receive the upgrade. The staff was Extremely welcoming and accommodating and spoke English which was great. The room was very clean, the bathroom was immaculate and the bed was really comfortable. The location is fantastic for anything you may want to do in Paris! My room was facing the street and was little bit noisy early in the morning, but since I had to be up for work anyway, this was not an issue for me. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others, in fact I did recommend it on our companies internal travel site since I was staying her for work.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the street to cut down on the early morning noise.

The hotel is great! The rooms are spacious and stylish! I have changed three rooms during my stay and all of them were unique. The greatest was on the 5th floor while in the room on the second floor there were no bathrobes and coffee machine. But it didn't spoil my stay. The personnel were also very helpful!
