We were checked into a not too good a room (right beside reception) it was quite loud and not very relaxing. After speaking with hotel they kindly and thankfully moved us upstairs to a larger and much more peaceful room, nice views and all round so much more relaxing. The room and bathroom were very nice and clean. The hotel itself is very nice. It is a bit out from the centre of Paris so be prepared to navigate the metro system (do not taxi as Paris in my opinion has THE WORST TAXI service I have ever witnessed). One down point about hotel is the housekeeping. There is no 'do not disturb' signs which i still can't get my head around. So if you hadn't left your room any earlier that 10:30am you were constantly harassed by housekeeping staff to leave so your room could be cleaned. I found this absurd and quite rude. You should be able to lie in bed and relax and not have to get up and debate with housekeeping staff when you want to leave your room. Seriously ridiculous and should be well looked at by management. Apart from that the hotel is good.
