This hotel is really nothing special. The bed and pillows are comfortable. The furniture is a bit odd. King size headboard for a queen size bed? The air conditioning system works as it should. The internet system is terrible, very unreliable. You have to log (actually create a user ID)into the quirky Mercure system. The wifi signal is extremely weak throughout the hotel. The connection speeds are terrible and pulse severely. The service is very restrictive when and if you do connect. Never had a strong enough signal to use Skype or even view Facebook without a struggle. Not all the rooms have a mini fridge so make sure you ask for a room with one when you check in. The hotel does not have self service laundry but there is a decent laundrymat a few blocks away. Shower water pressure was decent. Not many cable channels. I think less than 10 all together. Staff is friendly and somewhat helpful given the limitations of the hotel. We asked for some ice for some drinks we were going to have and we were given a saucer with six cubes of ice on it. Really. The location is decent with many shops and things to do. Close to the metro. If I were to come back to Paris, I would try something different.
