We stayed for two nights at the end of January 2014 for my husbands 30th birthday. The location was perfect, literally outside the Cambronne metro station, a few stops from the Eiffel Tower & Arc de Triomphe. We actually managed to walk back from the Eiffel Tower one day as well which wasn't far at all (with the help of Google maps!). All the other sights were within a 20 minute Metro journey as well and within zone 1 (don't get a zone 1-3 card unless you're travelling further afield as you don't need it). The area felt very safe (unlike other parts of Paris) and had cafe's, a takeaway, bakery for breakfast (lovely and the staff are friendly and will help you with your French!) literally on your doorstep.
The room was spotless and modern, with a lush bathroom, nice toiletries, very comfy bed & TV. It was also very quiet despite being so central and opposite the Metro. We were initially disappointed to not have an Eiffel Tower view but soon realised as soon as it got dark and the Tower lit up we actually had a fantastic one - we didn't notice initially against the grey January sky, oops!
Check in was easy and all of the staff were friendly and helpful, offering maps, umbrellas, where to eat etc, not what I was expecting in Paris at all. They have left luggage so you can easily leave your cases there on the last day without worrying. We didn't bother with breakfast as we never do when we are away but it is an option.
The only thing that stopped me giving a five rating was something tiny but if you love your morning cuppa makes a difference - there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. I know this is normal for Paris and tea isn't really the norm anyway but I did miss my cuppa when I woke up! Maybe something for the owners to consider in the future?
Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely return next time we go to Paris.
