Lovely hotel, but could do with a plumber!
Posted Feb 27, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at Le General, which is clean, modern and comfortable. Perfectly placed for metro connections, which makes getting round easy, but the local area is lovely too. Staff especially nice and helpful.
One issue: we had trouble getting the showers to work. We also barely had running water one morning, with a slow trickle at best from the taps. I guess it's an old building, we were high up (7th floor) and I know the hotel was fully booked. It was peak demand time, but that's not great you've paid for a suite. Staff very responsive, but not much they could do.
Also, the suite had two 'bathrooms'. The first was a small, ensuite type, with toilet and shower enclosure - but no washbasin. The second, main bathroom had an over-bath shower, two washbasins - and no toilet. Perfectly nice, modern and spotlessly clean, but when you use the toilet, you have to go through the bedroom to the other bathroom to wash your hands, which seems really odd and inconvenient.
