We were visiting Paris for the Heineken Cup match in Stade de France. The journey from CDG Airport took about an hour but the hotel is only five minutes walk from the metro station. There is also a bus stop a few minutes further which brings you into Paris central.
At check-in we had already been given our room cards when my travelling buddy asked about the single beds. This had been included in the special requests on the original booking but was not noticed by the very pleasant receptionist. We got a room with the single beds.
The bedroom was small but adequate for our purposes. It was unfortunate that we could not open the window as we both felt the room was a bit stuffy on arrival. However, we did utilise the a/c which brought matters under control.
The all you can eat buffet breakfast was good value with a nice selection of cereals, yogurts, breads, croissants, crepes, cheese, ham, teas and coffees. It was certainly filling and set us up well for the day.
We spent two nights in the hotel and before we left we were able to have our boarding cards printed in the hotel which saved us time later.
There was free use of two PCs outside the breakfast area and one or both were usually available.
There are three elevators in use in the hotel and this was the one drawback. You can wait for five minutes or more at times to await the arrival of one. We stayed on the first floor so the stairs (not well marked) was our best option.
All in all a pleasant experience and a place I would certainly use again if in Paris for a sporting occasion.
