Good for its class. Stayed three nights in very well equipped room. Hotel is in a lively neighbourhood that may not suit everyone, but close to Metro, plenty of restaurants in walking distance, and good for Eurostar. Breakfast good, but in Paris it is usually best to go out for breakfast, so only had it on first day. The only real problem was the speed and mechanics of the wireless Internet. Speed varied, sometimes being too slow to use and the log-on system required constant re-authentication. May not stay here again on business for this reason but otherwise a good hotel for its class.
Check in was problematic, but (believe it or not) this would not affect my decision to stay again. When asked (in French) if the receptionist spoke English we were met with derision and the comment that you are in France, why would I speak English? It may have been meant as humour, but at then end of a long journey it was not welcome. Pas de problem... Rudeness is expected in Parisian hotels and restaurants. The problem got worse when we were advised that we had only two rooms reserved when we had booked three. Our three rooms booking was clearly set out in the printed confirmation, written in English. Some wrangling then ensued, and the receptionist decided he could speak English. Only when I leaned over and pointed to the lines on the hotel booking screen that also showed our three rooms did the problem get resolved. Not a good start and not clear if it was typical Parisienne "attitude" or simply a problem with the individual concerned understanding the hotel reservation system!
