Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 21, 2014

It is very dark in this hotel, so leave your shades at home if you don't want to be continually bumping into walls.
BIG diamond theme! The walls are positively GLITTERING with sparkly bits, and the bedheads are also adorned with fakes.
Still very dark, though.
In a busy and expensive area of the City, so reasonable value.
Not getting any lighter in the meantime.......BMMMMPH!.......OOOOH! My Nose!
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Put the light on!
The rooms are definitely large for Paris, and comfy too with good bathroom.
Open the curtains!
Nice bar and elegant courtyard, but breakfast not the best.
Did I mention fact it's rather dark?

Room Tip: Get one fronting courtyard in desperate attempt to get some natural light.

My room was Deluxe Twin bed, you should be satisfied their room size in Paris. Normal size bathroom with bathtub, seperate toilet. What a pleasing surprise when you pulled the room curtain! Not loudly even if the room was face to street, because of double glass windows. The hotel & room deco are modern classic, it's not garish although some furniture are using "Diamond" for decoration. Breakfast was continental type, simple but adequate.
The staff were nice & helpful, fulfilled all our needs. Location was good, just walking within 10mins to Printemps & 5mins more to Layfette.
Tips : Our room rate in High season(Paris Big Sales week) was around EUR$295/USD$385 included breakfast. Low season is around EUR$179/USD$246 or less rooms only. Highly recommend if you like to choose a new room in Department or Opera area.

I really enjoyed by the welcoming, higher than the usual standards of the BW. Highly recommend for budget business trips. Very nice employees. Near by the metro to reach your destinations without waiting the terrible taxi service of Paris :). Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: any room at the top floor facing the street.

The location of this hotel was ideal, especially for where we wanted to go. We came for the tennis in Bercy and we were one short train ride away.

The room was nicely decorated and comfortable and the bed was great. We didn't like how the shower was because the design of it meant that the opening of shower was right next to the toilet and amenities were not renewed.

We found most of the staff to not be as friendly compared to other hotels we have stayed in except for one man who worked the night shift and helped us out with everything and made our stay more pleasurable.

We stayed 5 nights during this October .Perfect location,new hotel ,pleasant stay.
The hotel is quite luxurious and new . A new hotel in Paris !!!! This is a first for us!
The total scheme of all over black is quite weird and give the feeling of lack of light.
But !!!! The location is very good ( next to a metro station and to the RER Garre Lazare ).
The service at brakefast is slow . The deal of breakefast included is a nice touch and makes the price even better.
The people at the reception desk are polite , efficient and helpful.The bed is extremely comfortable and has premium sheets.
We had a deluxe room , which was huge in Paris standards, with big windows and very well appointed.The bath amenities are first class, the shower is powerfull with lots of hot water at any time of the day. The nespresso machine is a nice touch but very limiting as you can not have a cup of tea.
There are many good restaurants around and one minimarket next to the hotel.
We walked to the Opera and to the Grandes Magazines ( Printemps, Gallery Laffayette,etc): 10-20 minutes depending on your pace .

Room Tip: The rooms facing the patio are extremely quiet ensuring a good sleep. If you are in for a wonderful...
