The reason for our stay at this hotel was a visit to the Palais Omnisport at Bercy to see the mighty Depeche Mode.
The Metro system in Paris is really easy to use and we found the station nearest the hotel without any problems. The station in question is Cour St. Emillion on line 14.
The hotel is about 2 or 3 minutes walk from the station.
The hotel is pretty non-descript in a small tree lined side street. Street is tidy enough with plenty of shops etc.
There is also a small shopping precinct attached to the Metro station.
There is limited parking at the hotel for guests if required - although I woouldn't recommend driving in Paris!
At reception we were met with a smile by staff with very good English. My French is not very good but he seemed to understand my utterings despite my very broad Scottish accent.
We arrived early but our room was ready so there were no problems.
The room was very small but it was very clean and tidy. The shower base is about 10 inches from the floor but this did not present any problems for me. My wife, who is a bit shorter in height, did find it awkward initially.
The hotel overall was very clean and the staff were very pleasant. The breakfast included in the price was as substantial as you wanted it to be as it was self service buffet style. (Continental breakfast).
There were a large number of restaraunts/cafes nearby and we were spolied for choice.
If you are attending any gigs at the Bercy you will not be disappointed. The venue is about 5 minutes brisk walk along basically a straight road or you can walk through Bercy park which will take about twenty minutes.
The area felt very safe and I would definitely use this hotel again if I were attending any gigs at this venue. In fact I would consider it again for any visit to Paris due to it's easy access to the Metro.
Oh, almost forgot. Depeche Mode absolutely nailed the Bercy.
