Very good location for Arc de Triomphe, Charles de Gaulle Metro (quick and easy connections to all other attractions and Disneyland Paris!) and Eiffel Tower; 10 minute walk to all, boulangerie over the road and bus stop straight from Gare du Nord a 5 minute walk away!
Nice modern room, very clean and maintained every day with clean towels. Not very spacious but does the job and is good value for money. Check-in was very simple, nice staff but the 'bar' was less of a bar and more of a lounge. Can't comment on breakfast as opted for boulangerie croissants! Wifi was of a good standard, but separate codes are needed for each device.
Only downside to the experience was the air-conditioning - or lack of! Having a room on the first floor, with a large window opening out onto a roof (not wanting to leave open due to security) and no ventilation of any kind, air conditioning would have been good - especially as it was advertised.
We asked reception if they could adjust the air con (room controls made no difference) to be cooler and were told that it was 'law' in France not to turn it on until June!! This is rubbish. We then asked a different member of staff on reception (in the evening) if it could be adjusted and were met with an abrupt 'it is working!'. Not the kind of customer service we expected. We tried to explain that no air could be felt coming out but he still remained insistent that it was working and wasn't 'like the UK air con units!' So we gave up and remained in a stuffy room leading to a poor nights sleep! Other than that, the bed was comfortable :)
Overall though, nice hotel in a great location!
