4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

This hotel/location was perfect for our family. We stayed in a 2-bdrm apt., so plenty of room for our 2 teenagers. Proximity was great to several metro stations, which made it easy to get anywhere in Paris. Nice neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants. The beds were comfortable. The bldg is very old and had lots of charm. If the rooms are indeed refurbished later this year, then even better! I loved the French furniture and deco! Restaurant (breakfast/dinner) and bar were very good and much cheaper than the restaurants around the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 2-bdrm apt. on the 5th floor. It was in the corner and we had a fabulous balcony to...

This French Services hotel is in an excellent location with super views from the 5th floor but noisy from the street below. Rooms are comfortable if a little tired but the staff are most helpful even when 40 welsh rugby supporters requested champagne to celebrate our win over the French Team. The rates are very reasonable especially with a location just off Housmann!

Room Tip: 5th floor facing the Eiffel Tower are best but a little noisy.

As has already been stated in earlier reviews: this is a hotel run for Officers in the French Armed Forces. It is comparable to the Union Jack Club or the Victory Services Club in London.

The accommodation was comfortable, if a little dated and frayed around the edges. (Hence a refurbishment later this year). As for the food, although I only ate le petit déjeuner, it was excellent. The service throughout was also efficient and friendly. For me, the key selling point of this hotel is its location – the centre of Paris with easy access to all the sites and the metro. Overall: good value.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times while visiting Paris with my family. Each time the service has been very friendly, the rooms very comfortable - if a bit small - and we have enjoyed our stay. We have always been street front with lovely views of the cathedral that is right outside your window which is nice. The walking distance to all the main attractions is very convenient and makes for a nice stay any time of the year. The Grand restaurant that is inside is phenomenal. We always enjoy an amazing multi course meal there when we go, with apertifs and post dinner cognacs in the bar area. Decorations are simply stunning.

This hotel is run by the French Armed Forces for service personnel and I made my booking under a reciprocal arrangement. It is very close to the centre of Paris and the prices are reasonable.

We stayed over the New Year with some friends having booked months ago and having asked for rooms on the 5th or 6th floors at the front. On arrival, we were offered a room on the third floor at the back which was so small, it would have been better listed as a single. The second room, also on the third floor was a little larger but reeked of drains. It was also dowdy, poorly lit, lacking in any storage space and noisy.

The staff were pleasant and helpful but unable to improve the quality of our stay. It was clearly a busy time for them and they did their best. The breakfast was fine.

We were informed that the hotel will close in July 2013 for refurbishment. Not before time.

Room Tip: Insist on rooms on the 5th or 6th floors and at the front.

The shower was a hand wand only, no bar on wall to hold it.
My 1st shower had no hot water- so it was a quick one.

The hotel claimed that irons were a safety hazard, and thus there were no irons in the room.
Nor coffee :(

Location was great, but other than that it was bare bones.
I would NOT stay there again.

Breakfast buffet was included, and was actually very good.

I visited here for the fourth time and was again happy with the stay. I did have a room on the fifth floor street front and enjoyed the view. (An earlier comment denegrated the interior rooms and I cannot comment as I have always been street front.) The location for the price is the main selling point for me. A close second is the multi lingual and very helpful staff. They have arranged reservations, transportation, given excellent directions and generally been most helpful.
As also previously stated there are numerous small and very reasonable cafes nearby. Of particular note is the department store Monoprix directly across from the hotel which has a food store and deli counter. Good inexpensive eats as well as clothing and necessities. Check this out for food to go or an inexpensive breakfast.
Finally, if you are travelling on to the Normandy area the St Lazare train station is a few blocks away. Walking distance if you are traveling light and can roll your bag(s).

Room Tip: As stated above and by others, ask for a street front room above the 4th floor. You will hear some t...
