We had three nights at this hotel over the recent Tour de France finale w/end. For the most part it was a good experience but the lack of a lift (it was being overhauled) meant popping back to our rooms became an ordeal. In fairness, we had asked for rooms on a high floor as these are usually quieter and we were sort of offered alternatives. Foolishly we declined, which proved to be our mistake. After the first night we asked about moving to rooms on a lower floor but by then the hotel was fully booked. What should have happened, I feel, is that the hotel should have made the lack of a lift more obvious on their website - from overhearing some comments made by other customers checking in we weren't the only ones to feel this way (the lift is apparently out of action for well over a month).
Okay, that's my major gripe out of the way. This was otherwise a good stay. The rooms we had were very nice; good aircon, reasonable showers, comfy beds, wifi that worked (even on the 5th floor) and a big widescreen t.v. This only had two English channels, the dire BBC World and even direr CNN.
Breakfast was reasonable without being great but what was nice was the all day bar. Ok it only served soft drinks but there were a good selection of these (nicely chilled in a big fridge) plus cakes and savoury nibbles. A very nice touch this.
The staff were, I would say, functional rather than over friendly. The hotel is in a nice area, with a Metro station about 100 yards down the road. It's an uphill walk to Montmartre but mainly downhill to the city centre (but even downhill is tiring in 30 degree+ heat).
