Perfect stay for our family of 4 with two children. The location is ideal, only a couple of minutes walk from the metro with good quick connections to most of the tourist areas. We were also able to walk to the hotel easily from arriving in Paris at the Gare du Nord and found lots of good restaurants and cafés on the main road nearby. We were upgraded to two interconnected rooms which were ideal, with comfortable beds, and they were very quiet. The breakfast was superb, lots of choice and everything of very high quality. The staff were all welcoming and helpful, and very family friendly, eg. making our two children hot chocolate with straws at breakfast time. We'd love to stay here again next time we are in Paris.

You know the agony: should you bring your own hair dryer with you on vacation, or risk using the hotel’s? You could end up trying to style your hair with a dryer that appears to be run by squirrels. But not at this hotel. And that, my friends, is a metaphor for our experience there. We bookended a river cruise with stays at this hotel. It is a beautiful space, and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The bathroom is modern and well-stocked (including the aforementioned hair dryer, a veritable Porsche of hair dryers!). The breakfast, though pricey (26E pp), had an excellent range of choices. My only complaint is that the rooms were both very warm, we couldn’t get the thermostat to cool it down enough and had to sleep with the windows open (it was still quiet btw). The front end of our trip was awesome: excellent guidance on restaurant choices, professional and helpful front desk staff. I want to call 2 staffers out by name: Hoda and Shawn, who got me through a MasterCard disaster that left us high and dry on cash. The back end of our trip was not as great as the first— things seemed not as crisp (housekeeping forgot to clean our room, then ignored a written note on the bed (in French) asking for more towels), front desk forgot to order our 6:30 am taxi to the airport, also struggled to print out our bill, the front desk guy who checked us in seemed annoyed by my questions about COVID testing, etc.). But again kudos to Hoda who came through with a reservation for the BEST RESTAURANT of our entire trip. I wish I could give 5 stars to Hoda and 4.5 for the hotel, because they were near perfect.

The hotel is in a great location. The reception staff are very attentive and pleasant. The bar/ restaurant staff are equally pleasant too. We stayed in a superior double room which was spacious and very clean, over looking the street, which was ok, after all we are in a city. This can be a little noisy if the window is open at night. The only one disappointing thing for me, was that I’d have liked a drawer in the room to place underwear/socks. The breakfast is nice and lots of choice but the hot buffer was limited to scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. The bathroom was clean and I enjoyed the use of the Clarins products. There is tea/coffee available in the room which is of a very good quality. There is a safe in the room which is one of the easiest ones I’ve ever used. More hangers in the wardrobe, would be a bonus!! I couldn’t fault the hotel. Be very careful when travelling on the Metropolitan, make sure you don’t have your phone out on show and don’t be flashing any expensive jewellery.. keep your watch covered up or don’t where one at all. This is a great way to get around in Paris and a day ticket only costs €7.50. The hop on/hop off river cruise is a great way to get around Paris too. This is around €19 for a day ticket.. we made use of this and it stops at all the popular attractions. Have your wits about you whilst in Paris, as many cities across the world, there are pickpockets/opportunists around. Fabulous place to shop, there is a nice part of Paris which is around 1.5miles from the hotel, here you’ll find lots of very nice expensive shops (bring your credit card with you!). This part is also home to the French Prime Minister! There’s plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.

Very nice hotel in a great area of town. We used the metro a lot to get around Paris as it is a 5 minute walk to the nearest station. There are several great restaurants around. The room itself was nice and clean the whole visit. The room was not ready as promised at 3pm and the front desk didn’t really have an answer why.

Dear Travel Geek, What a pleasure to read your feedback ! We cannot thank you enough for praises of our well cleaned rooms, and our prime location near to les Grands Boulevards and Opera. Regarding the room we have no excuses that you checked in that late. The checkout time is at noon, some customers leave the room a little bit later. We do our best to ensure a check-in by 3pm, but unfortunately risks can compromise this promise. We are working on this subject so that such a thing does not happen again. Your disappointment regarding the check-in is a reminder to us that there is always room for improvement. Yours sincerely, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

This hotel is located in walking distance from Gare du Nord, in a small street, looking squeezed between the Opera and other houses. But when you enter you are welcomed very friendly in a cozy and astonishing world of Belle Époque architecture. We particularly liked the bar/restaurant/breakfast environment and the elevator design.
