How to Get There
Before I write this review, just want to BEWARE you that as told by their reception staff, they DO NOT have Queen or King beds for their Premium category rooms......... So if you plan on staying here with your spouse/partner, be prepared to sleep on 2 Twin beds joined together, otherwise they’ll ask you 120 Euro for upgrading to a junior suite. Remember, all this for a Queen bed!
Have just checked in here about an hour back and already too frustrated at the attitude of their front desk staff!
The staff was very courteous, Housekeeping was excellent and the room was very comfortable. The reception service was always very good and pleasant. The location of the hotel is superb and it was very convenient to visit places from here.
I stayed a couple of days in this hotel and was quite disappointed.
One day, they forgot to do my room and I had to request them to do it when back in the evening. Fortunately they were reactive enough to do it.
But the most incredible thing is what happened with the taxi when I checked out.
When I checked out at 7am, I order at the reception a taxi to go to the airport. The receptionist called and told me that the taxi should be there in 7 minutes which was OK with me. There were another customer waiting for a taxi which was ordered before who was also waiting. When the taxi arrived, the driver gave a a € note in a discrete manner to the receptionist. In France, taxi drivers are not supposed to bribe receptionist to get a taxi.
Then, the phone rang and the receptionist told me that the taxi will be there in 20 mins which was clearly not acceptable. When I started to get unhappy, he called the taxi stand which is 2 mins from the hotel and the taxi arrived within 3 minutes. When I asked the normal taxi driver what happened, he told me that it was a classic scheme that instead of calling normal taxis and paying the fixed 50€ price to go to the airport, receptionist call private companies and get a tip from the drivers but when the car arrives it shows already 14€ in the meter making the trip much more expensive.
I find this practice totally not acceptable and do not understand why the management is not taking action, unless they all share the tip?
The hotel is in a very god location to the elite 16 arondessement in Paris and in a good proximity to Champs Elysee and Tour Eiffel and off course the high end mark shops. Also the staff is very friendly with good attitude. Rooms and utilities are a bit too small but it is the Parisian style. Lifts are extremely small and it is challenging to be in whit your luggage if your have big bags. WIFI is terrible. It was poor coverage and very slow which reminded me of the trips I used to make in central Africa with the same performance of Internet. Breakfast was good and had a nice variety for intercontinental breakfast.
We stayed for just one night at Melia and would recommend this hotel. The rooms were nice and clean and all staff were really friendly and welcoming. The location was convenient and we slept very well as it was so quiet. Excellent for a weekend trip.
