Coming from the US where the Best Western chain is seen as low-end, this was a fantastic surprise! Our original accommodation let us down, so we had to get a room ASAP via Expedia. This one came up and was pretty well priced and in the area we wanted.
When we arrived, we found it was literally around the corner from an up-and-coming trendy area of bars and restaurants. That said, it was also very quiet in the room - though if you wanted the sound of the city you just opened the large windows.
The decor was very odd - in a good way: from the grand-piano shaped check-in desk, to the collection of "Topo Gigio" puppets from the Ed Sullivan Show displayed under it made this a unique hotel. And after chatting with the staff, we learned that the Best Western chain in France is actually a collection of Boutique hotels - each with a different decor/theme.
Yes, the hotel and it's rooms were small - it is Europe after all. But it was quality. The bed was very large and comfy, the bathroom had ultra-modern fixtures and was spotless, and the room had air-conditioning that worked well (especially since we had unusually hot temps around 88!)
All in all, I would definitely stay here again, but also will try other Best Westerns in the future.
