Reviewed August 14, 2013

The hotel offers good condiciona The rooms are clean the breakfast is average althought the meal is served in the own hall of the hotel near to the front door, and there are very few tables. One think to be improved is the mindset of the employees they never are friendly and even sometimes can argúe with you

Room Tip: Never ask for it in the reception

Everything was correct but the concerge, they are not too proffesional. The location is a bit far from city center, however is very quite and looks safety, it is a good area. You have the underground close and the rooms are modern and have kitchen, fridge, sink, dishes...and you can cooking if you want.

If the title of this review "very passable" seems negative it shouldn't. The hotel is what it is. It is clean, the staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable with a sink, micro and small stove and all within walking to two very useful/convenient metro stations. Yet, there are caveats to most everything. As someone wrote earlier it does come as a surprise to many American visitors to be asked as one leaves (each and every) morning what your room number (so the cleaning staff can begin cleaning). The rooms also seem to be attempting to be clean and stylish with grey color palate used throughout the hotel. Also the walls seem to be more than uncommonly thin with full conversations being heard clearly. But is this getting what you pay for? In my book yes. Would I stay again? Absolutely.

New hotel opened September 2012 I believe. Chose it because it had a suite within my pitiful means and the location was not too bad either. Have heard other guests moan rooms were small, hence booked suite. Anyway, 5 mins from Tolbiac Metro with supermarket nearby to stock fridge. We had a fridge and cooker which other guests in double room told me they had.

Downfall, not given kettle to boil water with, asked twice ;-) and was politely informed there was a pan to boil the water in with which I did, despite not staying in a caravan. Breakfast area was very, very small. Breakfast itself was fine.

Loved the size of the room, very good indeed ;-) would consider it on my next visit to Paris shortly.

Traffic from outside can be a tad noisy. But very, very happy with suite!!

Room Tip: Know budget is invariably an issue, but a suite can be very, very comfortable.

Was looking for a small Boutique Hotel. It could have been amzing, but the whole design is just completely wrong. Mirrors, leaking shower, TV...staff is nice, coffee machine is great, but that's all...what a shame, the need a proper designer to rethink it all

We just had a 4 night stay at the Ambre and would reccomend it. It was a 4 min walk from the 7 line Metro or a 10 min walk to the 5.
Our standard double was a bit smaller than expected (it is paris so no real complaints - i would have opted for the junior suite or deluxe double if i had known) - but it was modern, clean and had all the modern needs.
Free wifi and continental breakfast was a perk that we enjoyed as well as a flat screen tv.

If you are comfortable navigating via metro (we are city people) this is a great place - we saved a ton and really liked how new everything was. A plus the bath was almost half the size of the bedroom area!!!
