The Location is fantastic the staff are brilliant all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small with thin walls but this is not a major problem for us.The bed was however far too hard for us and the room was far too hot. The aircon worked well though perhaps a little too well so it was either too hot without or too cold with.. no in between was to be had so we slept with the window open and listened to the traffic.
The room itself was cleaned regularly and well the shower room was perhaps the cleanest i have ever seen away from home and the bedding was spotless we did not use the fridge so i cant comment the safe didn't work but we didn't need it anyway the free internet was fine . Breakfast is not i think worth the price as you can get the same in most cafes in the area with the addition of an omelette for the same cost. Do not attempt the bread unless you are in full possession of all your teeth and they are in good working order it is tasty tho. I did see a french chap dunking his in his coffee perhaps softening it like this is the norm in France.
There are plenty of good places to eat nearby but pricey as with any city in a tourist area, we did find one cafe (only one) that did an English style breakfast but for the life of me i couldn't find it again there are plenty of small supermarkets in Paris you just have to look or maybe ask? there is one just 3 roads away in the Avenue de la Grande Armee on the left a couple of hundred yards down walking away from the Arc de Triomphe.
At the end of the day we had a good stay the only major problem we had was on walking into our room it had obviously had a smoker staying in it before us the room stunk of smoke we left the window open all day and bought air fresheners as we were on the 5th floor we didn't want to complain and perhaps be moved to a lower perhaps noisier floor.
