We stayed here for 10 days recently. It's a beautiful hotel in a great part of Paris. It is quite small and the staff are great and really helpful but there are some quirks...
The rooms are small
The mini-bar is not cold and only has soft drinks (it seems that they don't want you to use it as it was unplugged and the information leaflet in the room states that it is not a fridge, but it is!)
There are no tea making facilities in the room but there is free coffee and tea in the lounge area
In the lounge area which is tiny, by reception there are floor to ceiling shelves which you would think would be full of books and magazines to read but the shelves are stocked with only coloured boxes artfully arranged... but empty!
The hotel is really clean which is nice but it gets a bit much when the hoover is on for most of the day
The maid entered our room (even when we were not in) even although we had put the do not disturb sign on the door. Cleanliness seems to be almost an obsession in the hotel but there are no waste bins anywhere
In our double room there was only one chair at our small table so if we wanted to sit down to have a brought in drink one of us had to sit on the bed
No meals are served except for continental breakfast at a charge of 12 Euros extra per person. There is a room service menu though. But we didn't use it. It would have been too cramped in the small room for a meal to be enjoyed.
The lounge area only seats 12 people max which isn't good in a 20 room hotel
Our bed linen and towels were changed every day, even the towels we had not used. Not very eco-friendly. And so even though we were happy to sleep in our bed using last nights linen it was not an option.
In short the hotel is almost like an up-market hostel. It's a great place but has many small niggles which let it down. I wouldn't stay there again but if you can put up with the relentless cleaning regime and style-over-comfort policy it's worth a visit.
For 250 euros a night I would have expected a bigger room and at least a restaurant in the hotel.
