we stayed at this hotel from friday 12th march until monday 15th march for our 25th wedding anniversary and we cannot find one single fault other than we had to leave and return home!!! . there was a slight mix up at the airport and we were late arriving we had booked the shuttle service on offer but when we arrived we were met by members of staff and our bags were taken for us to our room then we were told because of mix up we were being upgraded to the room amelie!!!!!!!!!!!!! words cannot describe the room but i will try : soft lighting, tastefully decorated in white and siver/grey, under floor heating and a most luxurious bath and bath room . in the bathroom there was french windows which you could open and have a most wonderful view ,as you relaxed in the glorious bath tub.in the bedroom the french windows opened to reveal a balcony complete with a table and two chairs overlooking the eiffel tower absolutley unique! !the ceiling above the bed had about 12 round mirrors and this was also the case in the ceiling above the bath!!!in the morning we ordered the breakfast yes at 20 euros expensive but my goodness to sit out on that balcony eating it just wonderful (no extra charge ) and it was lovley and filling.
we found the staff all to be helpful friendly and personable they all spoke good english too and wanted to make your stay special and special it was!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have read many reviews moaning about the lift but we found it to be like the rest of the hotel charming !yes it was small reminded us of a tardis but it had a lovely ding dong when you reached your destination.
nearby their was plenty shops bistros and cafes, the arc de truimph about 20 min walk the metro was nearby although we never used it as we had tickets for the hop on hop off bus .we really could not rate this hotel highly enough.

Built in 1927 in the purest Art-Deco style by the architect Jere´me Bellat, it was acquired in 1967 by Marianne Moreau’s family, current owner and manager of the hotel. Since then, three generations have succeeded one another, transmitting with passion their love for beauty, genuineness and hospitality.
