This hotel is located in a great area - near the Opéra Garnier, easy access to metro, Roissybus, with good shopping nearby.
My room was clean and comfortable, and spacious (by Paris standards) and the reception staff were courteous and friendly.
Breakfast in the hotel costs €12 and was probably not great value, but there are bakeries/cafés in the area nearby with much nicer pastries and coffee.
The "free wifi" was very disappointing.
The download speed was 11 kB/sec, which is slower than old dial-up, and connection would frequently drop out. I tried connecting with an ethernet cable, but the speed was the same.
At best, a facebook page on the web browser took 2minutes to load.
I was unable to skype with my family at home, nor was I effectively able to upload photos to share.
I complained to the evening manager who said their internet was a 'little slow' but there was no fault. He suggested my iPhone and ipad may be faulty/having trouble with the connection.
I tried in all areas of the hotel, over two nights, and the fastest download speed (using the Speedtest app) was 11 KB/sec consistently.
I went to the (nearby) Apple store and tried the wifi there. The download speed there was 1000 kB/second, and there was definitely no fault with my iPhone or iPad.
For me, functioning internet access in a hotel is essential for my travelling needs.
Even if I have to pay for it.
To be fair, the hotel was otherwise clean, & comfortable, with friendly staff and a good location.
However I would not choose to stay at the hotel again.
