I enjoy staying in this area because it is several blocks away from the Eiffel Tower. There are a lot of shops, cafes, and there is a supermarket across the street (Monoprix). It is also right across the street from the metro which is very convienent (La Motte Picquet Grenelle).
I did not care for the service at all. First, no one was overly friendly at all or went out of their way to accommodate you. You walk in the hotel at any time of day or night and no one even acknowledges you. I didn't think this was a particularly safe environment because of that.
I arrived at the hotel early Monday morning and was told my room would not be available until 1500. Ok, I figured that since I am here early and it's a Monday that they would try to go out of their way just a little bit to get my room ready. We were so tired, that we ended up going back to the lobby around noon and fell asleep in the lobby! It took the man at the front desk an hour to call one of the hotel cleaning staff to get a room for us.
The room was ok. It was clean. There was only one outlet in the room. So if you needed to charge anything- you had to unplug the refrigerator in order to do so. The wifi was terrible. Don't tell me there is wifi when it barely works. The tub/ shower was without a shower curtain which was fine- but it is high up which could be a problem for elders/ people with mobility issues.
Also- I received an International phone call- and the person at the front desk decided to keep my call on hold forever rather than transfer the call to my room! I was not even told by the staff that I received a phone call!
While I do enjoy this area- I'd rather not stay a this hotel again because of the service and lack of security. I'd only stay here again if I were desperate or if it was better priced than other hotels in the area.
