For about 10 years I have had to stay 5 or 6 times a year in Moulins. Hotel de Paris was an obvious choice. I was able to witness the many improvements brought by management to this hotel. Rooms and bedding are now excellent, bathrooms are as good as they come.
Location is still great ( a few minutes walk away from the main shopping street, the cathedral, museums and the river). Besides, the hotel is next door to the best chocolate manufacturer in town: Le palet d'or. The shop itself is incredibly beautiful all blue and gold.
Food at the hotel restaurant is fine if not outstanding. The small swimming pool is a welcome bonus in summer.
Pricing is competitive.
Check out used to be a lottery game until one of the three employees at the reception vanished. I will not regret her departure.
Now it is again a sure win.
What is wrong?
For 10 years, breakfast has been a let down. Not the food as this is a French hotel providing a very decent Continental breakfast but the service. There is none. You have to err in the corridors to find anyone at that time of the day (from 8:30 am to 9:30 am). Consequently, I am able to draw a map of the ground floor blindfolded.
Why? The waiters are taking care of the wise ones, those who chose to have breakfast in their rooms.
So if you want a great stay without any glitch, choose room service and enjoy breakfast in your room.
