A wonderful hotel for single travelers and couples who want to stay in a real Parisian neighborhood. Convenient to the Arc de Triomphe (where 3 Metro lines and the RER A converge). The rooms are small, there's limited storage space and the elevator is tiny and the staircase seems like it was built for a dollhouse. Bathroom didn't exactly require contortions to get in and out of the tub, but you did need a plan of action.
But that's often the case in Paris, and everything else was pretty great. Rooms are nicely designed, neat as a pin and spotless. There's one of everything you need (small tea maker, efficient thermostat, a small shelf in the minibar you can use to keep food cool, a desk area (where the extra baggage can go). Bathrooms are great, sufficient water pressure and hot water.
This isn't a room you would spend a lot of time in, but you probably didn't come to Paris to spend a lot of time in a hotel room, and truth be told, you could spend a pleasant enough evening with takeout food watching movies off the Internet; the wifi connection is very good. TV only had one English station, BBC World.
Bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The only noise was a pleasant pitter-patter during a heavy rainstorm.
Full-time reception desk, and the staff was very friendly and accommodative. Breakfast was all-you-can-eat German style: meats, cheeses, pastries, jams and baked goods of many kinds. Hard-boiled eggs but no omelets, etc., though French food is heavy on that.
