We made our booking more than 2 months in advance and then arrived to be told there had been a problem and no room was available for us.
It was very obvious they had accepted our booking for two nights, and then when someone wanted to book the rooms for a longer period of time they had chosen to give up the rooms for short staying customers. We saw three other groups of customers being told the same story.
After a lot of arguing and waiting around, while we should have been out enjoying Paris, they eventually found us a room in a grotty place nearby at no extra cost (lucky us!)
Our short break was ruined. Avoid this nasty establishment at all costs!

We have recently redecorated the hotel in a simple but effective modern, contemporary decor, using neutrals highlighted by touches of bright colour in the lobby and breakfast room. But we took care to keep our warm welcome. ... more less
