I booked the hotel with a daily deal website and it turned out to be the most amazing bargain, our price included breakfast, 2 days stay, glasses of champagne and a trip on the Seine, all for £199!
(the prices per room per night are well above this!)
We arrived early and our room wasnt ready for us, but the kind staff kept our luggage, and we set off to explore, we came back about 4 hours later and our luggage was in the room, and we were given instructions to call front desk whenever we wanted our champagne, which we did, it was a lovely touch!
The room was amazingly well appointed, twin beds, extra pillows and covers in the room, the bed was remarkably comfortable and my sister and myself slept fitfully, abit too fitfully, we actually overslept for checkout on the second morning, and we were given a little extra time free of charge to get ready.
There is a mini bar, and dressing table, and the housekeeping service is spot on.
The bathroom is a wet room set up, large with lovely toiletries, and fresh towels everyday.
the staff are very helpful making sure you know where you are going and that all the amenities are pointed out to you to take advantage of. We didnt have breakfast but saw it, and it looked lovely, we just werent ready on time!
Upon leaving the hotel again stowed our luggage, and when we returned several hours later for our airport transfer, i found in a shopping bag items i had left in the room unknowingly - velcro rollers and my passport!! which i hadnt even realised i had left! Like i say, awesome housekeeping staff, they didnt even tell me personally, this is the staff - descrete, wonderful, and absolutely no fuss made about anything.
The hotel is located on a quiet, quaint little street accessed through an arch, with local parisians living right accross from the hotel, one apartment was having a party, it looked awesome, was very loud as the strret is narrow in width, and alot of fun, when our windows were closed we couldnt hear a thing, so it was no problem. there are many cafes and food places along the street accross from the hotel, and a little supermarket open until 3am, great for provisions for your room, just incase you dont want to pay 7euros for bottled water from the minibar.....
My sister and i wandered around a little lost looking for the metro, the hotel is basically between two stations, but the closest is Bonne Nouvelle, which seems to be well connected, all you have to do is walk through the arch, turn left, walk up towards the cinema at the top of the road, go left again and you cannot miss it!
We found the metro at first a little overwhelming but once you get your tickets, and complete your first jouney, its really a breeze, and very very quick and efficient for getting around Paris!higly reccommend, as taxis are extortionate! They charge by length of time in the car, not how far you go, and Paris spends a long time gridlocked, save yourself time and money, get familiar with the metro!
All staff members in the hotel were lovely, very reserved which appears to be the Parasian way, but by no means rude in anyway, anyone we spoke too always exchanged plesantries and made sure we were ok.
this hotel is an absolute gem, well located within the 10th arrondisment, with polite and helpful staff and lovely comfortable rooms and amenities. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here, and would be a pleasure to return, which my sister and i intent fully to do.
