We stayed at the Fred for four nights in February, and it was simply delightful. The decor is even more interesting and off-beat than is obvious from the hotel website, the rooms were extremely comfortable - outside of being a bit chilly because the maid always left a window open - and staff was friendly and helpful. I certainly will stay there next time I am in Paris.
One caveat - a sign at the registration desk clearly advises that breakfast are an additional charge, but I arrived tired and overlooked it. Breakfast was good, but if I had realized there was a charge, we would have explored other options.More
