Having been to Paris many times and stayed in 3 and 4 star hotels throughout the city, I was still searching for a hotel I would go back to. All seemed too expensive, too small, too noisy, had no shower pressure, uncomfortable beds or snotty staff. So, I took the advise of Trip Advisers reviewers and have finally found the most wonderful place to stay.
Everything from the other reviews is correct. The location is great - in a quiet street with a small shop and dry cleaners around the corner. Around 10 minutes walk from the Metro station and safe at night to walk the streets.
The Arch de Triumph is about 10-15 minutes walk away and the Eiffel Tower about 20-25. Great restaurants to suit all budgets are also close by.
The staff are wonderful, speaking perfect English for those who need it and French for those who want to practice. They are most helpful and will assist in any way. We were in there for New Years Eve and tried a to book a few restaurants but all were full. When we asked for help, the staff had booked us the restaurant we wanted at the time we wanted within 5 minutes!
The rooms are quite large by Paris standards (I sneaked a peek through the door of most while they were being cleaned!). We had a non smoking Deluxe room on the 4th floor, and for 20Euros more a night than the standard, it is well worth it with an additional separate sitting room allowing you to really spread out. The bed was firm, the shower had good pressure and the in-room bar fridge has room for your own drinks if you want. As the hotel is located in a residential area, our view was of an internal courtyard and the back of other apartments, which made it very quiet.
The room heating via radiators was good and can be easily adjusted. There is also an additional fan heater if you need it but were never turned it on and were never cold. All windows open fully to let in fresh air if you want. Rooms also had a/c but in December it was far from needed.
There is a lift to all floors so you don’t have to take the stairs with your cases - one at a time though with bags coz its small. The breakfast is nice with cereal, breads, boiled eggs, fruit, juice and tea and coffee included for around 12 Euros. There is also an option for breakfast in your room for the same price.
There is free internet though a computer in the lobby and the reception is 24/7.
So, if you are looking for a Paris hotel with a price well under 200 Euros a night, I would highly recommend Residence Foch.
I booked directly through their website and would recommend this for the best rate. You pay 1 nights deposit on your credit card which is subtracted upon checkout. Just follow the links to the hotel on Tripadvisor and you will find it.
