How to Get There
Location is perfect. Just 5 mins walk from Trocadero Metro Station. 7 mins walk from Chaillot Palace, so close to tour eiffel.
Room was absolutely clean, bedding was very comfortable and the staff was all welcoming and nice.
This room was most sweet and romantic hotel suite I have ever been to.
I am recommending this hotel to everyone who is willing to visit Paris.
Even if you don't stay in tour eiffel view suite, the hotel is worth visiting in location-nice staff-clean room-nice interior-wise.
We were in Paris for ten days and stayed
at the Le Metropolitan. I cannot speak more
highly of the entire staff, especially for
Ms.Kahina Abderrahmane , who is the
Concierge/Front desk. She was remarkable,
extremely knowledgeable and made our
stay all the more enjoyable.
The Hotel is in a good location, close to
the Eiffel Tower and restaurants. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have a great air conditioning system ! A nice breakfast is served in the morning. After a day of sightseeing we relaxed in the hotel pool
and sauna. I would most definitely
reccomend staying here.
Concierge / Front desk
Loved the location of this hotel. This was my second time in Paris. Short walk to the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the train station and shopping on the Champs-Elysées. This is considered the Trocadero area. The hotel staff was very, very nice and helpful. This included the front desk personnel, the bar staff and housekeeping. We had some travel issues coming from the states and we arrived very early and our requested room wasn't ready but they let us check in to another room just to take a nap while out room was getting ready. Very much appreciated. Can't beat the view of our requested room either from the walk out balcony......a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower.
Loved the spiral staircase and the afternoon sitting area for cocktails.
The rooms are very small though, other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
Stylish, cozy property with friendly and helpful staff. While our room was small it was comfortable, and depending on your Paris plans, the location is good. The staff suggested a great Moroccan restaurant and arranged for tickets to Giverny. The breakfast was modest, yet elegant and healthy. I would stay there again - great for a brief city visit.
I'm not one to give a really bad review (check out my profile and you will see I don't) but this was not a good hotel. I have Titanium status with Marriott which means I've stated at a lot of Marriotts and some of their Tribute hotels too. We booked this on points almost a year ago because Marriott was going to raise the category to a 6 for this hotel and we wanted to stretch our points while it was still a category 5. Really, Marriott? This is not a category 5 and should have never been upgraded to a 6.
When we arrived the front desk person was quite pleased to inform us that we had been upgraded because of status. Once we saw the room, we knew it couldn't possibly be an upgrade. It is the smallest room we have ever had anywhere even by European standards. There was no chair, no desk and nowhere to put luggage (and we travel light!) We finally squeezed the suitcase in the armoire because there was no room elsewhere. My husband and I are not big people but we had to walk sideways to get around the room. There was only a small bench (about 10 inches wide) that had the coffee pot.
The room was done in black marble. Might have sounded good on paper but made the room and bathroom seem even smaller. There were no hooks in the room to hang anything. We came back wet one day after being caught in the rain and had no place to hang wet clothes. We couldn't hang them in the armoire because our suitcase was in there and the wet clothes would have dripped on the clean clothes.
There was also no mirror in the bedroom and the bathroom was so small, two people couldn't fit in there to get ready in the morning. Every other place we stayed had a mirror in the bedroom so I could be putting on make-up and getting ready while my husband was showering. The design was an attempt to make the hotel look artsy and more like a boutique property. However, the rooms ended up not being user friendly. If you are going to have rooms that small add a few touches to help the customer.
However, our biggest issue was cleanliness. There was no top sheet on our bed; all we had to pull over us was a comforter that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. The bare floor was obviously dirty when the sun shined in the room. I dropped a bar of soap in the shower and it left a white ring on the black marble. The ring stayed there for two days which obviously told us the shower had not been wiped down. Same with the bathroom sink; there were spots on the sink that we had to wipe down every day when we came back so obviously cleaning people were not wiping down the room properly.
The public bathroom down by the restaurant also was not cleaned on a regular basis. I stopped in there after breakfast the first morning rather than heading back to the room before we ventured out and I noticed that there were two open small bars of soap. I went in again the third morning and the open soap was still there and both bars were quite dirty at that point as was the sink. Who puts open bars of soap in a public bathroom? I told the front desk it needed to be cleaned.
I confirmed prior to coming that we would get the breakfast because of status. When we arrived, I was told I would have to give up the 1,000 point welcoming gift to get the continental breakfast. it's never been an either, or situation with Marriott so was quite surprised at that. We chose the breakfast since we were planning on it and wish we had kept the points instead. The breakfast was the most pathetic breakfast we had on our entire trip. It consisted of a small jar of yogurt and the same few pastry selections every day -- and they normally charge 25 euros for that! I asked one day if I could get some fruit and the hostess was so put out by my request that I didn't ask again. For anyone planning to stay there, don't waste your points or your money; simply go down the street to another place.
I gave it a 2 star rating only because the front desk staff, for the most part, were very good and location is great. I simply would not recommend this hotel, even with the good location. There are too many choices in Paris to settle for this one.
Marriott, if you are going to look for Tribute hotels to align with look at Greenmount House in Dingle, Ireland or Kilkenny Hiberian Hotel in Ireland. Both are lovely boutique hotels that had every amentity. But please don't try to convince me that Le Metropolitan should be a category 6. I've stayed at Fairfields that were much cleaner and nicer than this property.
