Best part about this hotel is the staff - they are very polite and courteous and would go out of their way to make you comfortable. Also each one of them spoke perfect English. On our request, they even advised us an Indian restaurant in the Champs Elysses area and also helped us identify routes. Full marks to the entire staff for their hospitality and I again thank them for the same.
However, that's about the only positive thing I could say about this hotel. The pictures on the website could mislead you into thinking that its a beautiful and nice hotel. But actually its not. The building is old and the lifts (one of which was not working) were so cramped up that it could hardly accommodate 2 people comfortably. Therefore, we decided to use the stairs instead. So if you are planning to book this hotel to get a view of the Eiffel Tower from your room think twice about it because your room would then be on the higher floor and you would be compelled to use the lift which could be no less than a nightmare.
This hotel has two connected buildings, an old and a new one. Initially, we were given a room in the old building which was very dingy, suffocating and not well furnished. However, on our request the staff was kind enough to shift us to a room in the new building. The staff even gave us various options of the rooms which were available with them. Room finally which we chose in the new building was much much better.
The buffet breakfast was also not lavish, they had very limited offerings and the same menu was repeated daily. Even the evening snacks were nothing too great and this menu was also repeated every evening.
Overall I would say hotel was average and did not justify its price.
