My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. Reading the reviews we were not expecting luxury but having looked on the website thought the rooms looked ok. When we arrived we were put in a room on the third floor, which was a bit of a climb up the spiral staircase but would have been ok had the room been as we'd seen on the website. Yes it was a double bed but pushed up against the wall so it was difficult for one of us to get in and out of bed. We are both over 60 so it wasn't ideal but we could put up with it for 4 nights. When we saw the size of the shower room we were even more disappointed as it was tiny! You couldn't sit straight on the toilet as there was no leg room and you had to sit 'side saddle' with one foot in the shower tray! The shower head had seen better days but we managed to have a shower but was very cramped. The next day we asked if it was possible to change rooms as I did have some difficulty getting up the stairs as I have arthritis in my knees, the man on reception said he would see what he could do and when we returned he said we could have a room on the ground floor but a woman (manager?) interrupted and said we could have a room on the first floor instead. We didn't want to cause a fuss so just accepted. It turned out this room was the same size as the one we'd left with the same tiny shower room. This shower head fell off the wall the first time I had a shower, we mentioned this to the man on reception as we left to go out for the day and he said he would fix it. When we returned later he said he hadn't had time and could we just put up with it for our last night. Again not wanting to make a fuss we just did so. My husband managed to jam a piece of cardboard into the hole to hold the shower in. We enjoyed our short stay in Paris but it was slightly marred by the accomodation. There were also no tea/coffee facilities in the room, the room was too hot and we slept with the window open ( in January) I believe this room should only have been let as a single room which might be ok for one person staying a night or two . It seems they try to cram too many people into a small space. The location was fine, good bus service, either a 31 to L'arc de triomphe or a 53 to L'opera. Also handy for the station at Pont Cardinet.Good eating places near and also a supermarket.The staff spoke English and tried to be helpful but I got the impression that the staff were as 'tired' as the hotel.
