Excellent Central Location

5 out of 5
by from Windsor, UK
Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: Location and ambience of the building. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.
Cons: N/A
Location: We went to the Lido night club on the Champs-Élysées. The location of the hotel was 5 minutes walk away. Main tourist attractions and shops all nearby
The Hotel was picked for the location being near to the area we were visiting. It turned out to be perfect and very pleasing to find the 4 star rating was justified.

Right in the heart of Paris

4 out of 5
Posted Apr 23, 2016
Pros: Location and cleanliness
Cons: The noise level inside the room facing Rue de Berri was excessive at night
Location: Shopping, cafes, the metro were very close by and major attraction very accessible
We were really happy with the location of the hotel. The hotel was clean and the staff was very efficient. The room was very clean and large for a European hotel.We enjoyed our stay in this hotel and the location was right in the heart of the paris with easy access to the metro (only a block away). The only complaint was the noise level. We had a room with windows facing Rue de Berri, it was noisy each night, which meant sleep was interrupted multiple times each evening (with shouting, cars honking their horns). While it is to be expected because we were in a city after all, if I returned I would not chose a room facing the street.

Perfect location for a few days in Paris. My family and I stayed in a Junior suite and it was perfect for the four of us. Hotel was very nice. Only complaint, the breakfast was terrible. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Location

5 out of 5
by from Vancouver Canada
Posted Sep 1, 2015
Pros: Location, size of rooms, size of hotel.
Cons: Nicer hotel lobby bar staff.
Location: Already mentioned above.
This hotel is in the perfect location for travelers visiting Paris for the first time. It is situated at about a 2 minute walk to the Champs-Elysees and about a 7 minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe. The rooms are clean but aren't pristine. There is an older lobby bar staff member who is extremely rude (she ignored us for about 45 minutes and when we waived her down she told us to wait). The rest of the staff are very nice and helpful. The reception/check in was on time and our room was ready upon arrival. The food was also fantastic. I would definitely stay here again.
