How to Get There
Don't be like me. Do research on what a 4-star rating means in Paris.
It is definitely not equivalent to the U.S. system. From the 3 different sources I read on what qualifies a hotel as 4 stars in Paris, anything slightly above a Motel 6s or Super 8s in the U.S. would also qualify. I'm sure in the early 90s, this was a very nice hotel. Since then, it appears as though they only made 2 improvements: the TV and the paint. I mentioned the paint because our room had fresh paint fumes. So fresh that they hadn't even taken the masking tape off the door handle. This is what made me question the 4-star rating. If the staff missed something as simple as taking off the tape and felt it was right to place someone in a room with fresh paint fumes, what else is off? I looked behind the headboard for a plug (there wasn't one) and there were layers of dust that seemed as though it hadn't been cleaned in years. Also, the side table was barely hanging level and the bathroom seemed clean but felt dirty by how outdated everything was.
Also, we arrived late and we were starving, so we asked the front desk what was open nearby. He said everything was closed because of the holiday, but we walked for a few minutes and found open restaurants and even a McDonalds a couple of blocks away.
All-in-all, I felt as though some of these are things that shouldn't need to be fixed only after it is brought to the attention of the staff. For a "4-star" hotel, they should have the foresight to know that these are not acceptable. Again, from this stay, I learned that 4-stars doesn't mean the same in every country. Otherwise, the location is great for taking the metro and the staff was friendly.
Great location and friendly staff but this should not be a 4-star hotel.
Bathroom very old and tiles and bath that seem very dirty all time, although they weren't.
No mini-bar and if you call in the evening/night (10pm or around,so not in the middle of night), you need to go to reception to collect a bottle of water because there is only one person available at reception.
Not possible if you have a young child in the room and are one adult only, as you don't want to leave the room with child alone.
Great location - 10 min walk to L'Arc de Triomphe. Also less than 5 min walk to boulangerie,supermarket, restaurants. Staff very helpful & mulilingual. (but happy to let us practise French). Rooms small but clean. Breakfasst fine .Would definitely return. NB - Paris hotels cheaper in Aug- saved 30%. Hotel booked our tickets for Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Open Top Bus, River Cruise - saved a lot of queueing time.
Bought 3 day open top bus ticket, so got to sights easily. Metro is an option, but not 't always a station near sights. Went up Eiffel Tower at nght, so needed taxi ($15)- bus stops running around 7pm, Hotel happy to book one there, and plenty at bottom of Tower for return journey.
