Was hesitant to book this hotel when we read the reviews about renovations, but we booked it any way due to the location etc.... We were not sorry we did!! The staff was great, the doormen were beyond professional & helpful (especially Ortaz & Samir!!) Yes, there were renovations going on, yes there was some noise, AFTER 9 am, which by that time we were in the process of showering to start the day anyways. The rooms were gorgeous and spacious with great views (we stayed in 2 different rooms, smaller one on the back side/Eiffel view and larger one in the front with a balcony/Eiffel view). The location is fantastic, literally a block away from the Eiffel Tower as stated. Lots of restaurants, bakeries & stores nearby, also the Metro is right around the corner. Breakfast was a little pricey at 26 Euros, if you didn't like what they were serving (basically buffet style, scrambled eggs, crepes, waffles, breads, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, meats, various cereals, yogurts, and some cold dishes, all beverages included), HOWEVER if you go to other places most were around 11-18 Euros w/o beverages. The cappuccino was around 7.50 in each of the other places, with orange juice & tea etc around 5.50 Euros, so I guess it all depends on your tastes & likes. Overall will def stay here again, if and when we go back, we were VERY pleased all the way around.
