After a mix-up with the online booking site I used, the hotel bent over backwards to ensure that my stay with my father was a success.
Checking in is a bit fast for my liking... the receptionist welcomes you briefly and then hands you the key and points you in the general direction of the elevator. No register, no orientation, no explanations.
Remember to keep the key card in the lock to open the door. Then put the key card in the slot beside the door inside the room to make the lights work. (That would have been useful information to have on check in)
The reception staff is helpful, finding a restaurant that served out-of-season fare.
Continental Breakfast for 11€ is adequate. Their coffee menu is complicated- Un Grand Café comes in a coffee pot.
Some have said that it's a bit out of the way. I disagree. It's three blocks and a bridge from Place de la Concorde, and 5 minutes from the Varenne Metro Station.
Serious kudos to Beatrice and her reception staff.
I recommend it highly.
