We booked a superior suite but would question whether this is a superior room? The room is clean but bathroom very tiny. The glass table top is cracked and sharp and despite supplying tea and coffee they do not supply bottled water which is fairly steep from the bar to make drinks with. We had to ask for a iron...

I spent 10 days here on business. Rooms are clean. Breakfast is overpriced for what you get. Not a wow but good enough. The workout facility is OK not great. Off the beaten path. Nice bar for drinks or snacks.

Overpriced and over rated considering the amount of money you are payingand the services provided in return (even by the low standards of Europe's hotels). The only advantage is the location, and they are using this advantage in the worst possible way.

The hotel , staff, location, cleaness, were just excellent. Specially the receptionists who speak Arabic were very friendly so as the other receptionists. We're parents of 3 kids who really enjoyed the stay, and we'll definitely come back to this hotel.

We stayed in this strangely named hotel for a few nights near the end of July 2016. It is very conveniently located for tourists in Paris just off the Champs Elysee. Our first night was on the last day of the Tour de France and so the hotel was fully booked. Despite this our room remained quiet, possibly because it... More

The room was very clean and recently refurbished. It is very close to Champs Elyseés, so superb location. Unfortunately some people next door seemed to have a party in the last 2 nights and they were heavily smoking as well. I think the Hotel management should be more strict on this respect. It was really dissappointing. What a shame, it... More

I stayed here whilst on a business trip, and was greeted on arrival by a friendly doorman wanting to carry my case, followed by very customer focussed reception staff. The check in was slower than I would have expected, but very thorough and efficient. The room standard is very good. Clean, equipped with everything you could require. Tea making facilities,...

I don't have any place to compare this to since this was picked for us when we met my husband's parents in Paris. But they had stayed at this place the spring before and liked the location and liked the hotel. To me it looked like a nice European style hotel. It's older. And the rooms were clean. But this...

I would agree with previous reviews this is not a 4 star hotel in its current state, it is badly in need of a refurb (green carpet on the wall in my room was not a great look!).
