I was desperate for a hotel last week and everywhere I normally stay was full or double its normal price because of the Air Show. I finally found a room at this hotel and wondered worriedly why somewhere so central actually had a space. I needn't have worried, I was just lucky. The outside of the building is quite beautiful, a very unusual style for Paris with its Art Nouveau curves and oddly sandwiched between more traditional early19th century architecture. The evening receptionist could not have been more helpful or welcoming. He suggested supermarkets that might still be open nearby and then got me cutlery to eat my food in my room when I got back, and he organised a cab for me for the following morning (which is not as easy as it sounds in Paris). I had a delightful late night stroll down the Champs Elysees which is 2 minutes from the hotel, to find the supermarket - you can probably see the Arc de Triomphe from the front hotel windows it's so close. A really great location for visitors, but quiet. I loved my room. It was on the top floor (6th I think) and in the eaves which was really charming. My enthusiasm may have been influenced by the huge storm that hit that night, which made my room feel really cosy! It was ample space for one person and would have been ok for a 'normal' sized couple, with a small double bed and the crispest sheets and the most comfortable mattress. The bathroom was small, but cleverly designed so it worked. The decor was simple and tasteful, solid colours, none of that horrible pretentious chinz that you sometimes find in cheaper hotels. The breakfast was standard and cost €12 which was okish. As usual, the coffee wasn't great as it was left to stew on the hot plate rather than being made to order and the breakfast room itself was a bit clinical. Overall I was really pleased with my find and at €240 room only, was the best value room in Central Paris that night!
