I love Paris, it is a beautiful, romantic city. As this was a special occassion, I spent much time & research, selecting the perfect hotel for our stay. On previous trips to Paris, we have stayed in the Vendome area, where hotels are plush & opulent & expensive, but you get what you pay for.
As we really enjoyed the Latin quarter on previous trips, it made sense to book in that area. After weeks of pain staking research we chose the Hotel Atmospheres. It looked cool & funky & very much in keeping with the area. We booked a deluxe suite.
The hotel was easy to reach from the Gare de Nord. The hotel was very modern. The receptionist was very helpful & showed us to our suite.
The suite was on 2 levels. With a living area, sofa & seating area & en suite bathroom downstairs & upstairs a double bed, shower room (with own single person sauna) and separate WC. Whilst the downstairs was quite spacious, the upstairs was very small, & dark, there was no natural light. I was very disappointed & complained to the receptionist.
She called the hotel manager & they had a discussion about other available suites. I was told we had the biggest suite they had, but they offered another on the 6th floor but this was even smaller! So we accepted the suite that we had.
The manager did make a personal visit to the room to apologise & offered complimentary breakfasts, which was kind of her. She also left a bouquet of flowers in the room whilst we were out - which was lovely and I feel rotten writing a mediocre review of her hotel....
but given the amount of money i paid on a deluxe suite, i would not say it was value for money.
Next time we'll go back to the Place de Vendome.
