We stayed here 5 nights - 2 nights using reward points, and 3 nights that we paid for. The hotel has been open as a Holiday Inn for 6 months, and they apparently did a complete renovation of whatever was there before, because everything was very modern. For the 2 free nights, we had booked a queen leisure room, but none were available, so we were upgraded to a king executive room. The room was fairly large (for Europe) with air conditioning. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was pretty cool with a large shower that could shoot water from above, straight ahead, or through a removable hose, or any combination of the above (although the drain couldn't keep up with multiple options for very long). Privacy in the bathroom might be an issue for some--There was a huge window between the bedroom area and the shower (with the rest of the bathroom in clear view beyond the shower). There was a shade for this window on the bedroom side where someone using the bathroom had no control. Also the bathroom door was a sliding door made of frosted glass. Stay here with someone you love.
For the 3 paid nights, we were in a room with an Eiffel Tower view. This room was smaller and much more conventional, but still very modern and comfortable. The only negative was a tiny bathroom sink with no counter space. The room had a small balcony with a couple chairs and had a clear view of the Eiffel Tower. We saw an amazing sunset. I would say the view is worth the extra cost.
Hotel breakfast was good, but not worth 19 Euros when there are so many cafes in the area. The lobby area was nice, and the staff was very good. Elevators were very good, which isn't that common for Europe.
