We just got back from a week stay at this great hotel in a great location! The staff was wonderfully helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast and ate it every morning. It was 12 euros and worth it considering how expensive everything is in Paris. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was very large and has a hair dryer, a tub and shower. We brought our 10 year old daughter with on this trip and she loved it! The hotel had a cot set up in the room for her when we arrived. The hotel has free WiFi. The location of this hotel could not be better. It is close to all the major attractions and the metro. There is really great restaurants all around the hotel. The only complaint I have is that we were in room 65, on the top floor the last room in the hotel and every night we hear a loud revving sound that sounded like a motorcycle revving then coming down with a crash. The sound would go away for about 5 minutes and then start up again. When I called the front desk they came up and at first said they did not hear it, then they said that it was not from the hotel. After several nights without sleep I told another staff member and on our final night all was silent. I wish I would have told multiple desk people right away. As the time difference and the touring made us exhausted. So the lack of sleep because of the noise was a big problem for us. I wish this had not happened as we really loved everything else about our stay. I would recommend that if you find a noise at night that you talk to several employees until the issue is resolved. Also, the personel were great at helping us locate our desired locations and helpful at navigating us and recommending places to eat. They arranged a taxi pick up for us at the airport and also for our return flight out. The speak very good English and were very friendly and courteous. We would stay here again!!
