Having stayed at the Sofitel recently during a business trip to Paris (Thursday 14th November 2013) I found both the location and hotel itself very well suited to my requirements. Situated off the Champs Elysee, the local metro station is about five minutes walk away or for those on a sightseeing tour bus, its the same route to the metro but then a short hop down to the stop outside the Monoprix supermarket.
This five star hotel had just been renovated and looked smart at first glance. The doorman nodded his hat and ushered me through the doors where I was met with another welcome inside. Reception and the bar lounge were well decorated with a faint sound of music setting the ambiance nicely.
The superior room was amazing and the bathroom was ample size. The television channels included English and American alongside local and European stations. As you would expect in such an establishment, everything you could request was there.
Having considered whether to eat in the hotel, I decided to venture out and explore. The menu in house was very interesting with lots of choice, however the rate for the meals were very high. Further down the road towards the Seine, there were other places to eat which were half the value and were also of excellent quality.
In the interests of balance, I should also say that the room had no bath. Not such a big deal for a one night stopover but frankly I like a good soak and this was mildly disappointing. The shower was a creative design whereby the effect was similar to rainfall. This was a new experience although I had to think for a minute when working out the layout of the taps.
Its very difficult to be critical with a hotel that got everything right and I had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for those looking for a good, safe and central place to stay. In my short and brief time here, it has endeared me to return again in the future.
