Firstly, the location. This hotel couldn't be better situated if you want to walk to the main sights, with the Tuileries Gardens at the end of the street. We specifically chose it for this, and were not disappointed.
Secondly, this is a very expensive part of Paris (though we found everywhere expensive) so be prepared to walk away from the Vendome/Rivoli area if you want to save a few Euros on food.
The rooms are comfortable, with everything you require and a smart clean and spacious bathroom. Hanging space for clothes was very limited, however. In a hot August in Paris we were glad of the effective air conditioning.
The staff were generally friendly and helpful and spoke good English. As a group of 4 women, when we arrived we were asked if two of us would like single rooms, and we got the impression that this was so they did not have to remake the beds in a double room as singles. We declined. We also had a couple of problems with the shower and lighting, both of which were solved promptly whilst we were out for the day.
We took breakfast one morning, which had an excellent choice and quality of food, from fresh fruit to cooked items, including cooked to order omelettes. Be warned however that the 'special offer' summer rate only applies if you take breakfast every day of your stay, as we didn't feel this was made clear.
I do have to praise the staff for their helpfulness when one of my friends unfortunately had her wallet stolen when out at a restaurant.
All in all, a well located, clean, and comfortable hotel.
