This is a lovely hotel in an excellent location and, obviously, it is reflected in the price. Listed as one of the prestigous palace hotels the decor reflects that although it is actually relatively modest in size. I stayed for four nights in an executive room on the sixth floor. The room was spacious, well decorated with an attractive bathroom. Although it faced the inner courtyard there was an attractive view across the rooftops. This actually turned out to be a positive as the aircon never fell below 24.5 inspite of all my efforts to reduce it so open windows were essential. Service unfortunately was mixed. The staff at the front desk and in the bar were charming and efficient. Room service was disappointing. On my first morning, I ordered breakfast tea with milk but I received Earl Grey without milk. On my third morning, I got a tiny jug of milk even though I had ordered tea for two. On two occasions in the afternoon a member of staff rang and then immediately entered the room to take away the tray before I could respond. On my final morning, at 8.45 while I was packing a member of staff again rang and then immediately entered the room to check the minibar. On all occasions the staff were apologetic but it is not difficult to wait 30 seconds before opening the door. Conditions outside the entrance can also be chaotic. There is clearly a problem in finding taxis in Paris at busy times but surely a hotel of this standing should be able to master it. This was my fourth stay and would I return - yes but could they improve - yes as well. One message to their staff would be a little less egalite and a little more fratenite.
