My boyfriend and I spent a week in Paris at Hotel Atmospheres from February 25th - March 4th. All we can say, is that we felt like we were staying in a 5 Star hotel! I was a bit nervous when choosing a hotel for our holiday, with such a big selection of hotels in Paris, and had done a lot of research on Trip Advisor before chosing to go with Hotel Atmospheres based on such positive reviews, and we were both extremely pleased with our choice!
The front desk all spoke fantastic English, which was important to us since neither of us speak French. The design of the hotel and the room is amazing, and having access to a little gym was a great plus! We were on the top floor (6th floor) facing the street. It is true that you can hear some street sounds slightly, but not at all enough to bother you or lose sleep over. definitely not. Also, some other reviews here state that the room was very hot, I cannot understand how that can be a problem when the rooms are fitted with individual temperature controls. if it's too hot, you simply make it cooler.
The bed was very comfy, and the shower AMAZING! we're still missing that shower! yes the rooms are a little small, but that is the norm in Paris and does not hinder the experience in any way. the complimentary shower gel/soap/shampoo smell divine, and room service always kept our room looking spotless and perfectly clean!
we also opted for having breakfast included and were glad we did so. it's hassle free, in a very cool designed breakfast room. Buffet style and you eat as much as you like. The price of the breakfast is in fact very worth it for Paris. It was very tasty as well. Croissants and Pain Au Chocolat to your heart's desire :) yogurts, cereal, toast, fresh fruit, cake, cheeses and cold meats, scrambled eggs, bacon, and much more. we recommend having the breakfast :) always easy to head out with an already full stomach.
one last thing that i would like to mention is the location of the hotel. it's bang in the middle of the Latin Quarter, beautiful area and a stone's throw away from the Pantheon, ten minutes walk from the Notre Dame, and a two minute walk from Boulevard St. Germain, which is full of restaurants, boulangeries, chocolate shops, clothing stores, bistros, even a cinema, anything you can imagine, yet still quiet enough to not feel too close to all the action. My boyfriend, a comic book fanatic, was particularily pleased to find that there was a comic book shop right around the corner from the hotel. I couldnt believe his luck! :)
We loved this hotel so much that we consider it to be a big part of the great experience we had in Paris, and recommend it to anyone!
