Sebastien Grandchamp (owner) was a great host who was very helpful, courteous, and competent. He must lead by example since his staff were also accommodating and helpful in every regard. With one mention of inadequate hot shower water, it was solved. He gave us a wonderful bistro/restaurant suggestion in the 7th district which was fantastic.
OK, the proximity to Gare Lazare is a mixed blessing since the immediate surroundings were a bit dirty; but, the area was safe and within walking distance to lots of good restaurants, shopping and of course two metro stops with access to all of Paris & beyond.
Also, the rooms are small; such is life. Small is just fine, thank you very much. Nespresso in the lobby with newspaper. All in all, it is a very good value. If you want a view of the city, ask for room 602 with corner and balcony.
This is NOT the Ritz; however, it is a great boutique hotel that is what it is; nothing more or less. Remember, this is Paris. If you want a cheap hotel, don't come to Paris with a bad attitude. Do you homework before you come here.
I attended a meeting in Palais de Congress with colleagues who also attended the meeting and were paying 50% more for a standard Hyatt room; regrettably, they missed the charm of Paris too.
