Reviewed December 15, 2012

A lovely December getaway and the location was perfect for us, an easy walk to and from the train station plus many tourist sites. The front staff were always extremely polite offering maps and guidance. We never ventured downstairs to breakfast as there are patisseries on every corner. Our favorite being EK (Eric Kayser) Boulanger a block away...not much atmosphere but delicious croissants and cafe au lait...stick to the local's drink, a good cappuccino is hard to find in Paris!

Our room, #134, was very chic and modern tastefully done in reds, which only a Parisian hotel could do! We opted for a deluxe room rather than a classic and are very glad we did. The deluxe rooms are small; in anything smaller we would have been running into each other. We even went back downstairs to check that this was a deluxe room as opposed to the less expensive classic room. The room itself looks virtually new with a firm yet comfortable bed and easy Wi-Fi access. I did miss not having a bathrobe and slippers but then this is a 3 star!

The bathroom was the only defect...again, very modern and small. I'll always remember the fact that you sit on the toilet with your feet in the shower!! It's an open shower, so when in use water from the shower head sprayed everywhere....the toilet, floor, sink area, toiletries were drenched...a real mess. We found it easiest to shower in the morning and let housekeeping deal with the aftermath!! Can't imagine what this bathroom will look like after a year's constant use...it will have to be completely remodeled! One trendy thing was the bathroom "mood" lighting...the ceiling lit up like a starry sky which was fun to have on in the evening. Again, only in Paris...or maybe Las Vegas!!
Will we stay here again? Its still a toss up! But, definitely NOT in room #134!

Positives: Good location, quiet rooms and exact likeness to photos depicted. Close to both RER for the airports and the metro, too. Also, walking distance to a lot of the centre of Paris and all the well known sights. Staff very friendly and helpful and speak good English and were able to give very good directions when asked. Breakfast adequate and we had breakfast in bed one morning that arrived exactly on time. Fantastic massage bed - free for guests; make sure you use it.

Negatives: no bathrobes and awful pillows. No peep hole in the door and no hooks for hanging outdoor clothes. Also, the loo is a small separate room with no wash basin. Being newly refurbished, there was a lot of brick dust on the exposed wall in our room, but management were unaware so I'm sure they'll fix that soon. The room is quite small, but you are in Paris in a great location, so you are getting a lot for your money. I'd recommend the hotel and would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard - they are the quiet ones.

A frindly team receives you on the most parisien neighborhood. A boutique hotel with modern decoration. Good restaurants, metro, boulangeries nearby. Brand new installations for elevator and bathrooms.

We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival. The suite was fantastic, very stylist, spacious, clean and new. A double sofa bed in the living area, and a double bed in the bedroom, 2 baths. Loved the bathrooms and 'huge shower head'. We were very delighted with our stay.

Location was great, 3 mins to the nearest metro, 5mins to the RER line to Versailles. Notre Dame was just a 10mins walk away. Would love to stay here again if we visit Paris again!

Just back from a 4 night stay. On arrival we were greeted by pleasant and friendly staff and were told we were completed upgraded to a suite! Room had seperate sitting room and bedroom 2 TVs(minor complaint - lack of english channels) and free wifi. Bedroom was small but as we had a sitting room this was not an issue. Decor was nice too. Bathroom was amazing. Great shower and absolutely immaculate. Room was cleaned, bed made and towels changed every day. Loved the location. Hotel located close to metro station, shopping, restaurants and Notre Dame. Would definitely return!

We stayed in the Atmospheres for two nights over the last weekend (7th-9th) and had a fantastic stay.
The staff are friendly and amenable, the hotel was close to the centre of Paris and walking distance to Notre Dame and the Louvre and the rooms are perfect for two but a bit if a squeeze for three! Lovely showers and warm rooms to defrost after a wintry day in Paris.
We didn't have breakfast as we thought it rather expensive with so many patisseries around, one change would make a world if difference, a secure luggage room for early arrivals, I worried about my luggage all day up to check in at 2pm.
Merci beaucoup for such a lovely stay!

THE FIRST ART-GALLERY HOTEL IN PARIS We invited photographer Thierry des Ouches to decorate the hotel with his breathtaking photography.

We've created this hotel with extreme attention to detail and a focus on guest experience.
