This hotel lived up to all of its previous reviews and is well worth it's ranking on tripadvisor. It's location is ideally situated close to Pigalle (which has all your night life needs) and close to St George metro so you can be in Central Paris (Concord metro) within 5 minutes.
The staff were welcoming upon our arrival at 930am, Jennifer made us a drink, allowed us to refresh in a communal restroom and she then stored our luggage as we couldn't check in until 2pm. Jennifer then went through some hotel paperwork and then gave us a map and highlighted the places we had planned to go to in Paris. Her local knowledge was better than you would of expected and her English was perfect.
After seeing parts of Paris we returned at about 4pm and checked in to our room. We had room 602 we is on the top floor, I'm glad they had that little lift as the stairs would of been tiring with luggage. Our room backed onto the rear of the hotel, which had a good view of the roof tops of Paris and was as quiet as a countryside retreat in the night time.
The room is decorated to a contemporary but chic style and it has plenty of space and storage for a stay in Paris. It has fast free WIFI and all the TV channels on a large LCD TV you would ever need (we only turned it a couple of times). The shower was also of a good standard and the bathroom had a lovely amount of natural light from the skylight.
There is no minibar, but that's because you don't need one! Every day from 2pm until 10pm there is a free bar in the breakfast area with pastries, fruit, coffee, cans of coca-cola/sprite, crisps, nuts and many other small bits, and it's all FREE!
The breakfast is included and it has all the normal items. A cold selection of meats and fruits and a hot selection of sausages, eggs and pancakes.
All in all I really enjoyed our stay here and my first visit to Paris was made easy with the advice from Jennifer.
