After travelling by car from South East Spain we decided upon a night stop in Paris to take my 2 daughters (aged 8 and 5) to the Eiffel Tower. Whilst the hotel is situated in the business district, there is a SNCF train station virtually opposite the hotel and it is only 3 stops from the Champ de Mars / Tour Eiffel on line RER C. Although bear in mind that the trains do not run quite so frequently as the London Tube.
The hotel rooms are clean and modern with useful in room facilities such as a separate toilet and washbasin in addition to a small kitchenette wardrobe with a kitchen style sink, microwave and fridge.
Separate shower cubicle and bath. Although the shower did not appear to be thermostatic and the temperature changed rapidly from scalding hot to cool. Comfortable double beds and large sofa bed which converted into two singles. Ideal for a family of four.
Reasonable cost for this standard of hotel in Paris and the rooms were spacious which is less common in Paris. Having booked a bed and breakfast rate the presentation of the breakfast was lovely with 2 conscientious staff members, Mr Fussy and Mr Tidy, ensuring that all was tidy and well stocked. Sadly the quality of the breakfast did not match the presentation. The juice was from concentrate, with the ham, meat and cheese from refined and reformed varieties. Sadly the children's breakfast was again high in sugar and refined items. What has happened to natural and wholegrain these days!!
I digress. To summarise, The room was great, towels were a little thin and otherwise more than adequate and very comfortable. I would recommend for location and convenience and would consider a stay again. The parking is secure, underground and easy to access directly from the hotel - and a reasonable charge at €22 euros/day in a main city.
If I stayed again, I would book Accommodation rate only and not a Breakfast rate. Thank you to the General Manager for the Pommery! Much appreciated and thank goodness.... it was not the end of the world.
