We came here for a second time primarily because the hotel is well-located and very close to St Georges metro station. Boulevard Hausmann, with the large department stores, is a ten minute walk, whilst Pigalle and Montmartre take slightly longer if the metro isn't used.
The rooms are fine, but not splendid, although the public areas of the hotel are decorated very well indeed. Bedrooms and bathroom seem well cleaned - the only slight criticism I have is that the shower screen is too small, even though it is quite a weak shower, and the bath has an off-white mottled appearance. I'm not sure if this is down to it being wiped over with a spray cleaner and I was quite tempted to buy a sponge and a bottle of cif to see if I could 'bring it back'.
The breakfast choice is good with hot choices of omelette, beans and hot-dog style sausages rather than proper ones; and a wide range of cereals, breads, meats, cheeses, fruits, yoghurts etc.
On checking out I didn't feel quite the welcomed guest that I had the previous year - apart from on our arrival there didn't seem so many smiles or pleasantries on reception, and when leaving they barely mustered a goodbye or thanks. On this basis for next years annual December trip, I would have a look at a few other hotels nearby as an option.
