new hotel, very spacious rooms for Paris, next to St. Lazare train station and 5 minutes walking from Lafayette galeries. if you see the photos from the hotel's site, they are exactly the same in reality: large and comfortable.
the beds are a dream! the bathroom is large enough and the cleaning services impecable.
although they say it'a a 4 stars hotel, it's more a 3 stars one; the concierge makes all the adiacent tasks (carries the bagage, makes the coffe at the bar, opens your door when the taxi arrives..) the staff was very helpful and nice, but the hotel is defenetly a 3 stars one.
restaurants to go to: LA CANTINE, AVENUE, LE COQ, BUDDHA BAR
clubs: SENSE, KONG, LE BARON
BE CAREFUL: during the weekends, it is really impossible to get a taxi.. yes, in Paris... my friend and I had to walk a loooong distance because you couldn't get one; and the concierge from our hotel tried to help by calling over and over :)
otherwise, Paris is fabulous! Enjoy it!
