From the photo on the website you expect something wonderful in the park by the louvre, but no, it is in a row of shops on the other side of a busy road to the museum.
If the room we had was a superior room i'd hate to see a standard room. There was a seperate toilet to the bathroom (often very useful) but only because both rooms were tiny and to sit on the toilet i had to sit at an angle because the sink was in the way.
Staff were very rude. Noone offered to even take our bags to the room let alone show us to it, which for the price we paid would be normal in any decent hotel in London. On returning to the hotel after the first night out i said bon soir to the receptionist who just looked at me like i shouldn't be speaking to her. I also went to the restaurant 1 afternoon to request the loan of a knife for some cheeses we had bought to eat in our room and again was looked at as if i was some sort of criminal, i was eventually given a knife but very grudgingly.
The only thing going for this hotel is the location with its close proximity to the city centre and a metro station opposite, but for this price i wished for so much more.
I HAVE STAYED IN THE SAVOY FOR THE SAME PRICE
