- You can't beat the location, right in the centre of Paris close to pretty much everything and located 2 steps away from a tube station on the most interesting tube line you can think of for a tourist.
- Good comfortable room with quality linen
- Breakfast is of good quality with nice breads and sufficient choice for pretty much any taste. It's about 30 Euros per person so make sure it is included in your room price.
- Nice and friendly staff
- The air conditionning wasn't working in the room. The dial on the wall does absolutely nothing. So you are left with having to open the windows which, on rue de Rivoli, means that you have a very noisy night indeed. Not fit for a 5-star hotel.
- No tea/coffeee making facilities in the room. I would have thought this would be standard in all hotels by now.
- Don't expect your to room to have been done before 3pm mid-stay. They presumably prioritise the arrivals as one would expect but again in most hotels your room is done by 2pm. That means that if you are coming back mid afternoon your room won't be ready for your little mid afternoon nap.
- Service at breakfast is awful. The waiters forget half of what they are supposed to serve you (e.g. orange juice offered on day 1 but forgotten on day 2), the first thing they give you when you arrive is the bill (nice!!) - that wakes you up for sure, and if you get up mid-breakast to have another look at the buffet, they will have cleared your plates before you get back to your seat.
- The breakfast staff don't seem to know what normal tea is. If you just ask for tea, you will get jasmine tea (presumably because most of the punters in the hotel seem to be Chinese or Japanese). If you ask for 'English' tea, you will only get Darjeeling if yoou beg for long enough.
- Coffee is rationed. You will get asked once and then you will have to fetch someone and beg for a second cup. The hotel should do what most other hotels do ie install 2 or 3 coffee machines from which clients can help themselves.Believe me, it would be of better quality than having those clowns serving you.
As it happened we didn't have to pay for the hotel in cash because we booked it through Avios (formerly AirMiles). But if I had had to pay I would have chosen Novotel over this one because the prices are cheaper and overall you get a better service.
