chic and classy
Posted May 18, 2015
My husband and I spent 5 nights in this hotel in May 2015 and found everything very clean and comfortable. The hotel comprises a bistro style seafood restaurant patronised by local professionals, with the rooms on the upper floors. Our room was spacious enough, very clean, with a large window which opened wide, so lots of fresh air. The surrounding area is on the edge of an upcoming shopping area but with some insalubrious undertones remaining - however we never felt unsafe at any point. There are fabulous patisseries and restaurants within 5 mins walk, and a Metro about the same distance. It's about a half hour walk to Notre Dame, and about 15 mins walk to the Pompidou centre. Staff were without exception very helpful and friendly, and seemed really happy working there. We didn't eat in the restaurant due to a shellfish allergy, but had a lovely breakfast on our last day, with breads, patisserie, yoghurts, fruit, ham, cheese and boil-your-own-eggs. A good base, reasonably central, with easy access to some sights by foot, and others by Metro.
